Asherton and Independence Day

After careful scrutiny, I have decided that I did not err in my knitting of the Asherton Scarf. It's either supposed to be that way or a mistake in the pattern. After the forty-something row pattern, I did the repeat and you know what? It matches the first one. So, it's right. It's staying. It's an official WIP. You be the judge - see anything out of wack at the bottom of that knit stitch diamond?

So, stop looking now, it's going to stay and no one will ever look that closely. Besides that, its correct...
I hope that everyone had a Happy Fourth of July.
~ Suburban Block Party 2008 ~

We attended our friend's annual Block Party. Unfortunately, the past two years we had some rain. I usually bring an apple pie but this year we got a late start and the bakery didn't have any large apple pies. So, I got a nice strawberry cheesecake. ALOT of calories and I had two nice sized pieces....good thing that I did 62 minutes and 3.589 miles on my treadmill. Now, we're even...sort of...

My children had a great time at the block party...especially my little girl.

They had a whip ride!
a bouncy obstacle course

a sheep, a goat, chickens and a bunny...

and TONS of fireworks.

Happy Birthday America! You don't look a day over 200!
