La la la la la...

Beth finished her LaLa! She was quite surprised to find that one of her stitch markers had become quite attached to the project...

Things have been humming along here at Chez Melon d'eau. Last Saturday was a case in point. Not only was it the first anniversary of our Pasadena Daytimers SnB group--a lovely lovely luncheon:

Mary and Madge, trying to get Marie to sit up and smile for the camera--those are regular iced teas, honest!

FayLynn and Annette were trying to confuse our waiter, Tyce...

Beth and Jillian, I apologize if you don't like this picture. You are both so much prettier in person. Now, Mary has a smile that can light up a room all by herself... Those gift bags on the table were from Joan,


who had filled them with knitterly goodies, most of which she had either made or painted. I need to get some pictures of them so you can see too!

The next stop for me on the busy trail was an open house/shower for my new grandson:


He had a lovely time at his party. This is mostly what he did. Actually, it's what he mostly does. At one month, I guess that's to be expected--gee, after almost 30 years, is it any wonder that I've kinda forgotten what newborns are like?

Once again, though, I had to leave. Work beckoned. Actually, it sort of stood there with a flaming sword and said, "Come!"

But, as the LaLa picture will show, the luncheon/LaLaLong was a great success. And when we gathered on Wed. for our usual free-for-all, there was show and tell!

Now it's back to work for me... I do remember thinking, once upon a time, that it would be a good idea for me to get a job. Guess it's still a good idea...

Even though my loud, bossy, noisy self was there, it's still fun and wonderful to relive it through each person's own words. Simply marvelous. Garrett is adorable!

Garrett is adorable and by the pictures, looks like you are all having a great time at you luncheon.

Great to have a new baby in the family. A person does forget how tiny they really are. Their fingers are so teensy.
