Things we are doing for Independence Day, the Fourth of July:
My wrist is a bit better. So I've finished off my 6 crocheted place mats, hiding all the ends. I'm sending these to my sister in Charleston.
Mow and I watched the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest. The winner ate 54 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Then he downed a bunch of Pepto Bismal. Really, he wasn't about to hurl here.
We are amusing the bad kitten with a laser pointer. He is frantic with joy. This has not stopped him from jumping at my extremities - I got scratched on the back on my left hand before I got out of bed this morning.
I hope to get back on my tatting, with the improvement of my wrist. I'm off work this coming week, and I plan to get some serious work done on my TAT course. Plus the Winsome Drop Earrings!
I arrived at work Thursday and found a charming present on my desk. I work with a very international group, and one of my buddies just got back from visiting his motherland of Russia. He brought us all these great wooden boxes. What a sweetheart... I came over to his desk and sternly told him I needed to talk to him, which scared my Russian buddy. (He's not much older than Larry.) Then I thanked him and offered to kiss him, European style. He was very embarrassed.
Aren't they great? All red inside. What to put in it?
We are going to grill out today. I have some country style pork ribs and hamburgers and hot dogs and corn on the cob. Mmmm. Nummers.
Larry's friend K is coming over to hang out and play with the kitten. Larry is worried about her, and brings her here to perk her up and feed her. Chez Crazy is comfy for K.
And this evening, we will go over to sit in the front lawn of my church and watch the local fireworks. It's fun! Then we'll come home and shoot a few bottle rockets in the driveway. The Stooges love anything that explodes.
UPDATED: I have become what I have sneered at.
