I’ve been away the last five days in California for my friend’s bachelorette party (which was awesome… spa day, shopping, Wii games, wine and yummy Mexican food – what more could you ask for?) and just got back to the East Coast – going from 98 degree weather to 60 degree weather is a big change! We spent one day at a dog beach in Huntington. It wasn’t that warm so we were wearing jackets, but the sun was nice. My friend’s dog, Claude (a mutt – she has no idea what he is, though he is cute!), had fun running around the beach with his friend Harrold (one of the bridesmaid’s dogs). Kubrick and Hitchcock would have had a great time if they’d been there, but sadly they were left behind.
This is Harrold (he has a mohawk!):
These looked like parasailers, but they had motors… not sure what to call them:
The zoo was also a lot of fun! I love going to the zoo and the San Diego one is wonderful. I have more pics in my flickr page, but these are some of my favorites… oh and Happy Earth Day too!
In knitting news, I finished my first pair of socks on the plane over to California. My Monkeys are finally done and I am so happy to have the pair now. They are so great and fit perfectly! I really can’t believe it took me so long to start knitting socks, but now that I have I can see a lot of pairs in my future. 🙂
I took a picture from my iPhone inside the plane as well, but it didn’t come out very well (I had no idea how much planes move until I tried to use my iPhone to take a picture inside of one)… I might share it later, but probably not… it’s not that attractive!
My last bit of news is very exciting to me as I have received my wedding highlights video and I love love love it! I’m sharing it here as I thought some of you would like to see it. Our full length video should arrive soon and my husband and I can’t wait to see it. I just love our videographers (they’re a husband/wife team) and their editing techniques. If you want to see the video, click here. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
I have been making progress on all my current WIPs and finally have a picture to share of my Green Cherry Fizz. It’s turning out quite lovely, though I’m sure a good blocking will make it even more so. It’s a quick knit as far as time goes, but it’s very complicated with lots of different stitches (I learned a new one too!) and really requires all your concentration – much like Twisted Flower. I’m currently going back and forth between the two with the Monkeys to give me a break from all the concentrating!
I’m going on a trip to California on Thursday for a bachelorette party (I’m the maid – matron? – of honor so I get to throw it) and will have lots of plane time to knit. Maybe I’ll get a big chunk of these done! Here’s to hoping. 🙂
I’ve also been busy the last couple of days dogsitting! I do believe that Guapo made an appearance on this blog once before as he is here once a week (on Mondays) for some doggy company while we humans work. His owners have decided to take their first solo trip (sans Guapo) since they got him a year ago and they have left him with us. So, I’ve been seeing the joys (and the horrors) of having three dogs. I can safely say that there’s no way we’ll ever go there… two seems to be just right for us! But the pups have been loving having a third dog around. I’ve noticed that when one wants to play and the other doesn’t, there’s always a third one around to pick on, which seems to work for them! The three really are having a grand ole time together, and I’m sure they will miss Guapo when he’s back to coming over only once a week. Here are some of my favorite pictures of these three maniacs together:
Yes, you saw that right – Hitchcock is under the table playing with the two, LOL.
I swear it’s not all just teeth, though… they can look sweet too!
Kubrick’s hair in that last one cracks me up! He needs a bang trim and so he looks even more nuts after a good play session.
Also, thanks to Kathy for the blog award! I’ve gotten this one already but have yet to actually write it out… I’ll probably do it later this week. 🙂
