Long Weekend

EDIT TO ADD: Got a call from my little brother and just found out that the impending niecephew is no longer impending! My gorgeous (I haven't seen photos yet, but he must be, really) nephew arrived today after a marathon labor that started on Tuesday. Congrats to M&M and new baby boy A. I'm so happy for them!

Headed out tomorrow for one last long-weekend of R&R as a family of three. Next time we are there, we will be four! Hoping for much knitting and quiet time.


Had a very fun spin-night at the Topsfield Fair last night in the Sheep Barn. A surprise (to me anyway) Spinning Bee competition. I'm proud to report that both Cheryl and I won ribbons, although she might need her own weekend of R&R to recover from the stress. I don't think I've laughed so much in a long time. I'm so glad I dragged my snotty/coughy/tired ass down there, it was well worth it.
