Overuse of My Camera Phone

Phew! What a busy week. Work is crazy and I haven't had a moment to breathe. But it hasn't been all stress. I have gotten in some QT with my camera phone. (So I apologize ahead of time for the quality of some of these pics).

Visit to the Motherland

Well...At least my motherland. DH and I took his aunt and uncle to visit my family. We visited old Montreal, got to go to the Jazz Fest (if you haven't been, you should!) and were fed to within an inch of our lives. Good times, good times. I love the drive to Montreal. If you've driven up you know what I mean when I say corn...corn...corn...UNUSUALLY LARGE COKE DUDE! corn...corn...corn...STRIP CLUB! Interesting.

GO RED SOX!
First DH and I went here on Monday and watched the Red Sox win.

Unfortunately, it's been their only win so far this week. We didn't actually sit in these particular seats, that picture I took on a tour of Fenway that I was lucky enough to take recently. I believe the seat in the pic is one of the oldest in the park.

We were also lucky enough to be sitting 6 rows back from Home Plate. So if you watched the game (and knew who the heck I was) you saw me on T.V. We've sat in these seats before and a friend of mine has a tape of that game but I'm pretty sure I don't want to see it. When she mentioned it, I couldn't help but think of the episode of friends when they're all sitting around watching the old home movies of Monica and Ross and Monica is particularly heavy so she says "The camera adds 10 lbs." and Chandler says "Mmm. How many cameras were on you?"...But I digress.

July Blooms
It's Stargaze Lily time again!

Not that I've been home enough to truly enjoy these but just to see them and take a passing whif of them in the morning starts my day of jeeeuuust right.

And we're leaving town again just in time to miss these beauties bloom

Balloon Flowers! Have you ever heard of them? I hadn't until we made our annual pilgrimage to the greenhouses this year. I can't wait to see the bloom.

Shut Up! Actual Crafting Content!
Yes, Yes, I have some of that too. I've actually gotten some QT with my mom's Forest Path Stole! No really. See?

Talk about your crappy pictures. WOOF! I'll take better pics, I promise but look at that! 6 tiers done! Only...17 more to go. Oy.

I also joined Ravelry! I love it! Absolutely worth the wait. I've gotten some pics in there. I've logged some of my projects. It's great!

As for this weekend? DH and I are off to one of our fave New England towns, Stowe, VT. I'll try and actually take some decent pics.

Until then,

Take Good Care
