I've been away this past week to my favorite place - The Outer Banks. The weather was great and we had lots of fun. No knitting took place. Sorry! But I have to admit that my FLAK sweater has been calling.

Today is my dad's birthday. He's 75. We had a picnic and eyed up the pear tree which is just loaded with fruit. I brought a couple home to see if they are getting close to being ripe enough to eat.

The plums are just about ripe, too!

We had a wonderful blueberry pie made by the queen of the pie makers, my Mom!

It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to blod. Not much knitting going on either. My job has kept me busy typing, but I have picked up a pair of low socks to putt around with. There's no real pattern. I'm using Esprit from Elann. Just something mindless to work on.

Out local county fair was last week. Amanda got to meet country star, Daryl Singeltary. She was excited. Plus we got VIP seating.
