Today was a pretty good day. I spent several hours over at the house washing walls and cleaning up the outdoors. My sister, Chris, will be pleased to hear that there are millions of helicopters in our yard from the maple tree. I assume they are left over from last year. Maybe I should make some helicopter-mud pies like we used to when we were younger. I left the flower/weed alone, but pulled up a lot of other weeds. The most amusing moment of the day, I was playing around with the janky underground sprinkler and discovered that the robins like to play under the sprinkler for a little mid afternoon shower. There were about 5 of them hopping around.
This evening I checked out the "Concerts in Kollen Park." I wasn't sure what to expect....turns out I was about 1 of 5 people under the age of 50. The concert is put on by the American Legion band.
What else did I have in common with the senior citizens, you ask?
I was knitting. I think I'm going to like being old.
All in all, the concert was nice. They played a lot of patriotic songs because of Flag Day, but also did a "Hello Dolly" medley that took me back to the days of Adrian's Croswell Opera House.
Amber, get going on your sock. I've got one done! Don't worry, I'll work on something else for a bit before I do the second. I have a little "second sock syndrome" going on anyway.
Well, don't expect any posts for the next few days. I'm going to a medical conference in Chicago until Saturday. I'll have plenty of time to knit during the lectures, so I'll post some pics when I get back. If you need a blog to read in the meantime - check out action-squad.com. I'll miss you all!
