I love weekends...spending time with my family and friends...relaxing... This weekend was no exception.
While the weather was unbelievably hot and humid, we found time to have some fun. We are enjoying the World Cup soccer games and planned Saturday around watching the US play. Unfortunately the US team did not move on as they lost to Ghana. Our son had headed back to college for the day so hubby and I did some much needed clothes shopping and hit up some great sales at Kohl's. I came home with 7 tops for work and a new dress. I have been loving wearing dresses this summer as they just seem much cooler. Unfortunately finding a decent dress these days is hard...some of today's fashions are just not for me. We also went out to dinner and I enjoyed salmon cakes which were so good - very different and spicy.
Sunday I finally did my cleaning as the guys headed off to the golf course - they were crazy as it was 90+ degrees out and so humid. I planned meals for the week and headed to the grocery store. I spent the afternoon at my LYS with my knitting buddies and had lots of good laughs and actually got some knitting done.
I headed home to knit some more while dinner cooked. I am almost done with Liesl - a cute cardigan in a cotton blend yarn. I tried to knit 3/4 sleeves only to find they seemed tight. I will rip back tonight and just do the cap sleeve version - although I am not looking forward to ripping back the lace pattern. Uggh!
We grilled a delicious dinner - ribs for Matt - chicken/feta/spinach sausage for me and hubby. And had the first sweet corn of the season - which was so good! Matt handled the grilling as he is always trying out new recipes - this time a rub and sauce for the ribs.
I am enjoying this summer with our youngest son...especially since it may be our last one with him as he graduates from college next Spring. Who knows where he will be after that? The we will truly be empty-nesters...which breaks my heart.
