Back From Vacation!

Hi was your week?  Mine was fabulous (except a little sad news later).  We went on a mini-Vacation this past weekend and I loved every second of it!  Ger ready for some picture overload!

We left on Thursday and went to Rockport, friend of Jaime's has an RV park and rents out a couple of the RV's.

First there was some on the road knitting!

Then we got to our RV....this was home for 4 days and 3 nights.....

Then time to take some pictures of the scenery

We walked out to the end of the pier for some terrible selfies

And some more scenery/sunset:

Then I knitted some on my Rennandi....

Then some more sky pictures:

 and the sunset...

The next morning I finished the main body, but still needed to pick up stitches and knit the sides:

I worked a little more on my socks......

We had some friends over and did a little too much drinking, but I got another sunset picture...

Jacob (Jaime's oldest son) caught a fish...he caught several fish, but this was probably the biggest....we could have kept it, but he let it go.

I finished the Rennandi a little bit before we left:

and then worked on the socks again on the drive back (I may have napped a little too...remember the 'little too much to drink" part above)....

On the way home we kept seeing the bails of cotton in trucks and I was jut fascinated by is the only square one I saw (all others were round)...and it had orange wrap, as if it were calling my name!

When I got home, I got a better picture of my socks and rennandi.....and I forgot to mention that I also did 4 repeats on a front panel of the black sweater....I am trying to keep up with those 4 repeats per weekend!

Well, that is all I have knitting wise.....but it was back to school time for some of the kiddos here in SA.  My niece and nephew went to high school (Grace and Sean)....and Antonio started his first day of school....first day of Pre-K....

Last week I showed you a picture of Precious in her new dog bed and mentioned how now she and Star have their own pet beds....well, my Star passed away yesterday.  It was nice and peaceful and she was old (16)....and she will be missed.

On a happier/funny note, one of Carol's dogs (her name is Georgie) is a chocolate lab mix and she thinks she can fit in Precious' small bed.....she did not stay in it long, but she did fit!

Have a fabulous week everyone!  Happy Happy Happy knitting!
