It's a rather quiet day here and a bit chilly-
although the thermometer says 73 degrees F., it's
not sunny and I'm wearing a sweater. Had to get up
a bit early today as youngest didn't wake up in
time, so I drove him to school (at 7:15 a.m. it
was 55 freezing degrees - and I forgot to grab
a wrap so I was shivering!) Not much planned
yet for the day; tonight's Knit Group - I 
never really know how many people to plan for.
I have a website for our group and it provides
'signing in' to say if you're coming or not;
still people don't sign in. I usually try to
set up tables for about 10 people, then we 
can always add more chairs if more come. 
With the summer and more activities, our
group seems to thin a bit; tonight's the
night to remind the ladies we only have
four weeks until Log Cabin Days and any
knitting/crocheted dishcloths to be 
finished for the Historical Society.
(Wow-that never ceases to amaze me -
Log Cabin Days always seems to sneak
up on me, even if I KNOW it's coming!)
Right now I'm about 1/4th into another
Clive Cussler spy/mystery book, this
time it's "The Spy"; it came highly 
recommended by a friend from church
who keeps telling me: "You'll REALLY
like this one!" (hope so, right now
it's rather boring and I'm just plugging
ahead because of his recommendation).

Enjoy your day!
