Black Knights!! Hooah!
I wish you could feel the excitement here today. Tomorrow is a special day. The first home football game of the season and guess who has tickets?! We are SO excited we can't stand it. Best news... we live less than a mile from the stadium so we can walk and not suffer all the traffic. We went today and bought all the fun stuff for the game. Evidently football is HUGE here. Dan even had to bring home one of the office cars with the sirens and lights so that he can get through traffic if he has a duty call.
Dan laughed and said we have a pretty good chance at being at a game when Army wins because they're playing Rhode Island tomorrow (please, if you're a Rhode Island fan... yell at Dan. He said it, not me). Next one that we have tickets to is against Rutgers. He suspects we'll lose big time. Still fun to go though.
Kim blogged today about the little things I brought her last weekend and I felt like a schmo for not sharing what she gave me. I'm sure you all know she's been working hard to get ready for the fair but she let me dig into her bag of goodies and pick a skein. This colorway is called Boysenberry. Purdy, ain't it. As soon as I finish up the other socks I started on the trip to NH, I'll cast Kim's luscious yarn on.
I turned the heel on the sock I started last weekend. This yarn is fun. I'm carrying the ribbing just down the top of the foot.
I also did a little more canning. A bunch of Gramp's tomatoes were nice and ripe and I didn't want to lose them so I made some marinara sauce with them. No recipe. Just winged it which is usually what I do when I'm cooking. I had a bunch of fresh parsley and basil to use up to so it all worked out great. I only got three quarts but that red color is spot on. I'll save one jar to take back to Gramps on the next trip. He'll like that I think.
