I've been lazy about getting a post up the last few days, but here I am. And away we go!
The Captain was off Friday - Sunday last weekend. On Friday we went over to McKinney, Texas for some antique window shopping. They have a quaint shopping area in the old town square. This is a restaurant we ate at, Churchill's. It was still really nice out at lunch time so we ate on the patio...
View of the old courthouse across the street.
Our table umbrella...
I was trying to get a nice picture of the streets and brick sidewalks...looks like I managed to snap a great picture of a light pole. Duh. It's a nice one though. Ha-ha.
There was a big police presence on the square that day. I don't know if they've had a big crime problem or what, but we saw these two guys on horseback and a couple of bicycle cops riding around too. I have to say, these two guys were not very friendly. I took their picture anyway and said thank you. They never said a word. Hmpf! I hope they got horse shit on their boots.
Back to our lunch...it was FAB. The hamburgers and fries were great...
Not much shopping was done other than a short walk with some window shopping. My back wasn't up to it. The steroid shot is wearing off. I'm still about 50 percent better than I was before it though. That's something!
I spent the last several days crocheting away on an American Flag afghan for my daddy for Father's Day. It seemed like it was taking FOREVER and I'd never get to that last stripe so I could start on the stars and get it done in time for Sunday.
I was thrilled when I finally got that last stripe done and I cut the yarn. Then I laid it out on the dining room table to admire my work...DOH!!! Can you see it? It doesn't show up really well in this picture, but the top three white stripes are bright white and the bottom three are antique white! DAMMIT! Why don't I pay more attention?!
So I've just been mad and pissy about it. I'm a perfectionist with my crochet, especially when it's going to be a gift for someone. So I'm just all hacked off and not sure what I'm going to do now. What I am sure of is that I'M NOT RIPPING IT OUT and redoing those stripes! At least not right now.
I have one smaller crochet project I made that I'll show y'all tomorrow. Now I'm going to get back to work on my flower blanket. I'm going to attach the next 20 squares I have done and start crocheting the flowers onto those last 40 middles.
I have to go feed the dogs now before they eat my face off. They are so spoiled! Ollie has been crawling all over me and fussing for breakfast the whole time I've been making this post. The other three are hovering and glaring at me. Pushy!
Here they all are waiting for the Captain to give them a pistachio! He eats them out on the porch and they all follow him out there because they know they'll all get at least one or two. They love them.
