Saturday was a Market Morning, of course. I squeezed a lot of lemons! I don't think our set up has ever been the same two weeks in a row… always moving and, hopefully, always improving.
I accompanied my sister Annie to a wedding reception/dinner in Green Bay on Saturday evening. Her husband the the boys met her here later in the evening, and on Sunday morning we all went to see MINIONS! Did you know that they show movies like that as early as 9:15 am? We went early, but not that early!
I watched Junah on Sunday afternoon while his mom did catered beverages for a family reunion. He played some with the boys, but mostly we cuddled.
His hair is really growing!
And slept. He hadn't been feeling well earlier in the week, and a couple of big molars are coming in… making life pretty miserable at times. He had fun with the boys, though; I never tire of their doting on him. It's something special.
I finally sat down and took a little "me" time on Sunday night. I've finished the mesh (3 repeats) and have begun the knit-on edging for the TTL Mystery Shawl. The darker contrasting color surprised me by being a little electric in areas (not a bad thing), and I love how it's making the more subtle lavender-blue in the main color pop… I hadn't really seen it as "blue" before.

Maddy brought us a fun little colander bowl from her Appalachia trip. It's fairly small, maybe 5-6" across, perfect for a bunch of grapes or some berries. She enjoyed talking about pottery — especially her Aunt Sharon's work — with the maker.
Last Wednesday, after checking in with Maddy and dealing with the car situation, I met my sister Karen in Wausau for lunch (including one alcoholic drink & dessert) in trade for the the 7 lbs of tart cherries that I'd picked & cleaned for her the Sunday before. We met at Red Eye Brewing Company and had a wonderful meal together! Karen had their Red Eye Chicken Mac, I had Woodfired Grassfed Meatballs (enough to save some for Thursday's lunch), and we both had a brownie with vanilla custard for dessert. So. Good.

I need some sewing time!
