we like long weekends

Today is Scott's birthday.  He isn't very enthusiastic about celebrating in any unusual ways.  After a full day of helping others, he is taking a break before dinner -
Oooooh - he's gonna be MAD if he finds out about this photo!  Listen, a birthday is a reason to celebrate... whether you take a nap while watching Westerns or mow your lawn!  There will be poached halibut for dinner with freshly picked snowpeas.  And arborio rice.
One of Scott's contractor friends sent over a very lovely bottle of wine.  I thought that it deserved a shot with my hydrangeas and current reading.
I've frogged the Cricket yarn and am working on my own design for a long vest with lace edging.  It seems to be going well - I have one front done and am casting on for the second.  
My BFF called and needed a bit of help moving some office furniture.  We flexed our girl muscles and got the job done in under three hours.  She tried to reward me with $$$, but I wasn't having any of it.  Of course, when she whipped this out, I buckled -
Noro sock ... what can I say?  Who could blame me?

I didn't even know that Noro did sock yarn. but, of course, it would be scrumptious. What a great way for your friend to thank you!

I would move stuff for yarn like that. That sounds like a pretty awesome birthday dinner. I'll bet the birthday boy won't mind the photo with a meal like that.

Hi Jody! I love your banner photo, those flowers look like they are about ready to pop like a firecracker! The yarn is beautiful, I love the color it is very cool and soothing, the perfect summer project. I have been working on a hat and scarf set and have finished two more pairs of socks. I am taking a little break from my blog but I will be up and writing again soon. We have had some illness in the family, it was taking quite a lot of my energy and focus there for a few weeks, but things are much better now. I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead! Delisa :)

You'll have to let us know how you like the Noro sock yarn. I love the colors in Noro but I find it a bit scratchy.
Dinner sounds like our kind of dinner. yum! Happy Birthday Scott!
