Whew! I'm taking a short break from the Wars! I'm almost done with my first sock and have acquired a knitting injury on my left index fingertip. I'll be pulling out the bandaids and continuing on. My assassin is definitely going to get my beautiful pair of socks in the mail tomorrow morning and my target is also done with her pair of socks. I think I can do it today though! I just can't wait to get my pair!

I thought I'd post some pictures of last weekend. Gore Mountain held a family weekend/open house. We went up on Sunday morning. Of course, the clouds had closed in and we did not see much on the Gondola ride, but it was fun anyway! Here's the Rowing Cat - once again in a typical teenager pose! She turns 14 on Tuesday - I can't believe it. Where does the time go?? But, she's President of her class and Captain of her volleyball team and a straight A student. So I can't complain! Let's hope it keeps up!

Of course, there is fiber everywhere! These lovely ladies were on display at Gore! Notice the blue ribbon? This was won last year at Rhinebeck!

Here's the Gondola.

And here's Mark explaining something to his mother. The view would have been spectacular if only the sun was out! And don't you know, as we were pulling out of the parking lot, the sun was burning off the clouds . . .

And do you remember that baby blanket I made that the Rowing Cat wanted to keep? Here's a picture of little Oscar enjoying the softness! What a cutie!

Ok - I must return to the war. The Pumpkin Bread needs to come out of the oven too!

I have the same injury! And when I was only halfway through the first sock! Made the remaining part of the first and all of the second a real pain! But mine are done and in the mail, so I accomplished what I wanted to--to kill before I was killed. Hope you finish before your doom arrives!

You are safe in war for a few days yet. My fate is arriving in the mail any minute, so your bullet shall not be fired soon.

I would love me some alpacas - don't tell Rosie, Robbyn and the babies, but they're really alpaca substitutes :]
