A Honey of a Day

5 07 2006

We’ve decided that my son has the perfect build for pro cycling and were getting his 8 year-old self all excited about it when WHUMP, two riders went down. Hm. I cannot stand to see people in pain, and when grown men who are athletic and accustomed to pushing their bodies to painful limits are writing in agony, I feel my inner Scarlett preparing for a swoon.

We took the kids to Honey Bear’s BBQ, and if you live in the greater Phoenix area, you must eat there. Their ribs are just indescribably good. Between the four of us we polished off two and a half slabs of ribs, and when we got home we all took a nap.

I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, so every fourth of July was a grand occasion. Grant Park (do they still call it that? Didn’t they rename it the Millennium Park or some dumb crap like that?), the Taste of Chicago, and then the fireworks! Glorious. And my birthday is rather soon, so that always made things extra fun. Phoenix, while lovely and enjoyable in many ways, simply does not compare to Chicago when it comes to July 4th celebrations. It’s just too stinkin’ hot. And they wait until everyone is nearly passed out from heat-fatigue before they start the fireworks. We watched from our hill top view point and had a lovely, if sweaty, time. It was fun, and we all slept like rocks. This post lacks so many things that would make it worth reading, lo siento, amigos.

And now, my knititng update.

The start of a green square for Amy’s blankie.

Here are a charcoal gray and a raspberry square.

This is all I’ve got so far on my pillow cover, which
was to be my official project. It’s so loverly! And odd….

And, as work beckons and I’m feeling rather under the weather, I bid you a fond farewell.

If you don’t like watching athletic men write in agony, you had better stay away from the World Cup matches!
