Quiet afternoon

Earlier today Marley, Sam, Cocoa and I went to the lake. We spent a few hours visiting with Mom and Dad. Marley, Sam, and the dog went exploring and found three nice sticks to use to construct a canopy over Joan's bed, more sticks to use in buiding a palisade on the beach, and a snake skin.

I talked with Mom and Dad and mattress-stitched and Kitchener-stitched several blocks of the Lizard Ridge afghan that I'm making for Jacy.

Then we came home where Sam and I will spend the rest of the afternoon and evening playing, reading, and knitting while everyone else is at the football game.

(Is the game being televised? I don't think so. Auburn is playing New Mexico State, and NMS's record is better than ours! But if it were to be on TV, you might see Steve there in the stands - section 106 - with Tom, Karin, Sarah, Joan, David, and Marley. Jacy will be there, too, but she'll be in the student section. I might try to listen to the game on Sirius radio - if I dare... .)

It does look beautiful to me. I think I'll have to get make one for this house someday. So were you enthralled by Dorian Gray?

Finding a snake skin outside is much better than finding one in the house. My parents have a resident snake in the attic and they find a skin every year. Haven't ever found the snake though.

Lizard Ridge is coming together nicely.

I fell asleep watching the exciting/overtime game of GA vs AL. I have nephews at both places :)

Thinking I better improve my knitting skills, if I hope for my family to have remembrances of me other than my blogging. lol
