An Evening Out

Thursday’s day time activities included dropping off A1 at the movies, a trip to the fabric store for a button and bias tape, retrieving A1 and friend from the movies and sewing another bag.

Later we all drove down to West Linn.  My DH’s boss invited a group of folks to her house for visiting and to watch a concert in a nearby park.  The weather was absolutely perfect, the band was lively and the mellow crowd enjoyed visiting, music, food, etc. while children ran and played.

The hostess prepared dinner for everyone and we dined el-Fresco on salads, chips, and two varieties of smoked tri-tip sandwiches. We stayed well into the evening. A1 danced, while A2 and A3 played on the playground and in the fountain.

I dutifully brought the Quidditch socks, but a broken needle prevented much progress.  I’ve had terrible luck lately with a rash of Knitpicks Harmony DPs breaking left and right.

I drank a beer, one glass of wine and tried one small drink of a homemade lemon liqueur.  That wasn’t much, especially  over the 3 1/2 hour period, but I seldom partake and I’ve had a headache all morning.  We all enjoyed the evening out.
