I got to meet LisaK!

This evening I got to meet, face to face, an internet friend! LisaK belongs to a "studio" group to which my Mom also belongs, and they met this evening. It was really fun! Lisa is very nice and very talented. I'm covetous of the beautiful sock she was working on, not to mention the yarn she was spindling.

I'm still working away on my doily project that I'd hoped would be a shawl, but I really don't think it's going to end up being big enough. Measuring my row gauge and then figuring 200 rows (100 rounds) it's probably only going to be around 40" wide. Not quite what I was going for, but it's been a fun knit anyway. The pattern is from Nurhanne's site, the Doily with Spiral.

Tomorrow we're headed to Big Springs to feed some VERY large fish, then on to Yellowstone. I don't know if we'll be back tomorrow night or stay there and come back Thursday. We're playing it by ear (which is essential with young kids, as I well know but of which I am occasionally forcibly reminded).

Earlier today my wonderful DH and I had a date!!! That makes the third one for the year, I think. We went out to lunch at Johnny Carino's (I think that's the name) and had a very pleasant time and excellent food, then wandered around Target (nothing like shopping at a chain store that you have at home--it's all just slightly different!) and got some sunglesses since mine are AWOL, and then went to see Pirates of the Carribean. Some parents who should be clapped in irons actually brought their young children to that movie. Now I really enjoyed it, but my kids stayed at home with Grandma. These kids were way too young to be there--like 2, maybe 3 years old, and around 4 years old. They were very well behaved but there are multiple scenes that I DO NOT EVER want my young children to be exposed to. When they're young teens (like 12 or 13) that's different, but those kids are going to have nightmares. I just hope those kids didn't understand what was happening, but I doubt it.

So it's been a fantastic day and I'm looking forward to going to Yellowstone tomorrow. Speaking of which, I really should be in bed so that I'm not too tired to enjoy it! :-)

Ah... shucks! I'm sure I'm blushing. It was great to meet you too. Hope you enjoy Yellowstone. It should atleast be cooler there.
