Father's Day, Solstice, and other weekend activities

Happy Father's Day to all of you fathers out there! My dad said he isn't feeling well so he is staying home. W's dad might go shooting with W later in the day, but until then it is just the two of us! I'm pretty excited about that as I had to work yesterday so I didn't get to hang out with him much.

Yesterday was the Summer Solstice. I can't believe it was already time for that... it seems like just yesterday I was dancing around a snowy fire celebrating Winter Solstice. So, we celebrated by playing Solstice Softball. A complicated game involving beer and running around the bases. I was tricky and carried an empty can in my pocket and pretended to drink. Worked out well. And it was pretty windy which kept the bugs away which was nice.

Another thing that took place this weekend was J going home. He decided to go back to Illinois for a month or so since he wasn't doing anything here. The house is quiet without him. I'm going to be lonely on my days off. It is nice to not worry about walking around in my underwear though. :) And I also think Frito is happy to have the big couch to sleep on again. But we do all miss J. He is pretty much the best roommate a married couple could have.

Well, I have to go get ready to go to Costco. I did get some fun packages in the mail this week. If I get around to it, I will post about them later. One was roving from Platformnine Designs and the other was a surprise from W, which turned out to be fun tshirts. I kind of half thought it was going to be a spinning wheel, but ... the fact that my husband orders me funny shirts online is kind of why I married him. He is so unpredictable. Off to combat shop at Costco.

Looks like you really do need a spinning wheel, though, with all the lovely fiber you've scored lately!
