|Julie helping me crochet|
I have begun knitting and crocheting again (must be the Fall weather). And I've also gotten back to quilting... although so far I've only bought some fabric for a baby quilt and made a few catnip toys for the cats.
This weekend I was at my son's house spending some time with my 9 year old grandson since his dad had to work.. and his older brother did also. We had fun watching TV programs in Spanish since I was inept at figuring out their remote. We also did some sketching with ink pencils and a little with watercolors to pass the time.
And since the weather was so nice, we went outside and played what I call "grandma soccer"... meaning we kicked the ball back and forth making sure that it didn't come at me too high or too hard. He also informed me of the significance of the new Nintendo 3DS. Since I know nothing about the old Nintendo, the real significance of the new one was lost on me. But as you all know, the new generation is very tech savy.
At one point when I was sitting on the sofa crocheting, I noticed that their little dog was interested in my yarn. Since I was basically just using up left-over yarn, I crocheted a square into a cylinder and then rolled up one end... and began playing tug of war with her. She loved it! And once she got hold of the yarn, she ran with it and played with it all afternoon. It was great to see her so happy.
But I think she wore herself out. Here is a picture of her sleeping later on the back of the sofa.... a place where later I learned she wasn't supposed to be. But doesn't she look cute?

It's Sunday night and the weekend is now over. We ended it late this afternoon with ice-cream at Braum's (which is DH's favorite place).
Now it's time for book and bed - and possibly a cup of tea.
Wishing you a happy Monday and rest of the week!
