You’d think with all this laying around time (I mean, productive, rehabbing, knitting, cat-bonding time) I’d be blogging up a storm. Haven’t been staying current, though! Took a much too quick trip to Denver a couple weeks ago to enjoy a very full social calendar.
Went to a baby shower for Lisa, a former co-worker and great friend and her hubby, Rob. Gave her the baby bolero sweater I made. Looks like this:
Lisa’s due 9/1. My bday is 9/4. Wouldn’t it be cool if she delivered on my b-day. Although, if I were this preggers I wouldn’t want to wait any extra days. More pics from the shower:
Little girls took turns holding this little guy, who was two weeks old. So cute! Dog’s name is Iceman, a rescue Greyhound that’s so sweet! He did great with all the kids running around. Little does he know his world’s about to be shook up in a big way.
After Lisa’s I headed to Golden for a Stitch N’ Bitch and my friend Meghan’s. Had a blast. Was a much needed girlfriend-reunion with plenty of wine, food, conversation. Even met a couple of new gals.
l-r: Meghan knitting another tube, Kim scrapbooking, a craft I haven’t dared to start, given the lifetime supply of fabric and yarn in my stash. Red crocheting.
What a great time. These guys are hard core! Continued on into the night after I left at midnight. I believe a bonfire was lit. Thanks, Meghan, for hostessing such a fantastic gathering.
Went to my first Rockies game ever, with Garrett, a new-found friend in Denver, at Coors Stadium. He’s major baseball fan. I used to go to the Metrodome in MN with my pop to see the Twins and the Vikings. Never been a game watcher on TV, but, do like the excitement of a stadium. They lost 9-3 but was still a great time. Got do drink expensive beer and throw peanut shells on the floor, something tha made me a little nervous. ; ) Some photos Garrett took. He’s a professional photographer. Taught me some technical stuff about using a digital camera. He didn’t laugh at me when I asked, “Doesn’t the camera just record what it’s looking at?” Yah…there’s more to it than that…

Now THAT’S a sunset!
Then…dinner at Lee’s, BBQ goodness paired with friends, photos from some’s travels to Peru.
Just a group of friends who always recharge the battery, for me. I miss you guys…
So quick a trip, but better than the packing and moving whirlwind I last had there. I’ve lived a lot in the last 6 months! It’s a good thing. (Why did someone as corny as Martha have to coin that phrase?)
