Rainy Weekend Ahead

The weather here in Charlotte/Mint Hill, NC has been really lovely the last few days!  Almost no humidity, Fall like weather just perfect.  Well the lovely weather has no disappeared and we have rain again.  I really need a weekend of rainy weather though.  I have alot of things that need to be done and when the sun is shining and the weather is wonderful I want to be outside.  I have some Cinderella chores to do this weekend, reading and knitting.  We will be watching Jenny's dog, Cash overnight (Sat. to Sun.).  Teddy will have fun playing with him.  They getting along really great!

My parents will be visiting next weekend, so I need to get their room ready and bathroom also.  I really would like to find some things for the "boys" room.  We have to put the crib back up, or I should say John has to do that.  I want to decorate the boys room in a vintage cowboy and indian theme.  Owen has a cowboy hat and loves to play cowboy!  At their house they have a pirate theme for Owen's room and the Wizard of Oz theme in Jack's.  I'm thinking some kid's cowboy boots on the dresser, fix up the lamp in there, some vintage cowboy posters on the wall, vintage cowboy print curtains.....  It will be fun doing this for them.  I can't wait to get it done and then see Owen's face when he sees it.  Jack is a little too young to notice these things yet.

I will also be working on the Mystery Knit-Along that I am doing with my knitting group.  I had made a mistake and couldn't figure out what I had done incorrect.  Last night I had knitting group and I had dropped a stitch and didn't even see that I had done so.  The shawl is a lace shawl and for anyone who has knitted lace before they know the yarn is about thread thick, so hence the issue!  I am not the only one in the group that hasn't had issues.  I will move forward though and finish the shawl and it will be beautiful!!  Can't wait to knit the beads on.  I have never done beading in my knitting before and I am anxious to learn.  I also need to complete the Breast Cancer scarf I'm making for Vicki (another blogger) who is collecting pink scarfs for breast cancer.  I think this is a wonderful thing she is doing!  Vicki's blog is called 2 Bags Full...

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend whether it is raining or shining!!

Sherri- Hope your parent's visit is a good one. It will be fun to get your "boy's room" decorated in a cowboy theme. It is fun to do things for those little ones, isn't it? Have a wonderful weekend- xo Diana

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
