A little weekend update - stitching and more :)

Hello and Happy Sunday. I hope everyone's weekend is going well. We have been having a nice and relaxing weekend...and definitely enjoying the weather. The heat wave seemed to have snapped Thursday evening, for Friday's high temps were in the low 70's. That was over a 25 degree drop in temps. We have since opened the windows and turned off the air conditioner, giving it a well deserved break until the next heat wave hits the Bay Area.

We haven't really done much around here this weekend; just feels good to veg-out with the family. I have fired up the grill a couple of times making BBQ pork chops, chicken and beef kabobs over the weekend to ensure the boys are getting their fill of lean proteins - something every growing boy needs - as well as fresh vegetables and fruits. It is nice to have time to sit and visit during family meals. 

During our relaxing weekend, I have been able to "basically" finish up February from LHN's Sampler Months Series. 

And here is January and February together...

Next up...March.

I just want to say that our thoughts and prayers are being sent to those families who were affected by the Asiana Airlines Flight 214. It really was strange being somewhat near the city that this crash occurred. We fly out of San Francisco airport periodically for hockey travel (SFO is one of our choices to fly in/out of...sometimes we fly out of Oakland and other times San Jose. It is nice to have 3 airports so close together when comparing prices)...and to think that airport is only 40miles away. When the crash occurred, we did experience several big commercial jets fly over our area as their were redirected to the other airports. With my DH and older son, Robert, leaving on Thursday for another hockey event, I find myself getting a little anxious about their travel.

Anyway, time to sign off. Until next time, remember...

Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch Often!
