Where did summer go?

I have no excuse other than life just got really busy and blogging fell by the wayside. But the knitting and spinning has not. This is just going to be a quick check in. I will write a long post tomorrow night. My nephew and his finacee are picking up my girls tomorrow afternoon and keeping them over night! Be still my heart....I'm taking my mom to see Julie & Julia and go out to dinner. It will be a grown up night...the girls will have fun and I will have a night to do as I wish.

We had some excitement a couple weeks ago, Emily was scheduled for her second round of surgery re her cleft, the day before my mom calls me saying she does not feel well and to please come home. Ended up with her in one hospital with a "slight" heart attack (oxymoron if I ever heard one) while Emily was in a second hospital undergoing her surgery. Thanks to my sister who quickly came down from the north woods and stayed with my Anna while following up on mom, I was able to just focus on Emily. She came through surgery with great results and is thrilled with the outcome. She just gets prettier and prettier. And she is so very strong and brave. Surgery is never easy and to have it on your face is even harder but she just did wonderfully. And mom was able to come home the next day to start her recovery.
July found us spending nearly a week in Florida celebrating my niece's wedding. The location was amazing, I was able to sneak off 3 times to spend several hours on the beach with the girls. And while the wedding was amazing that was my favorite part of our time away. But seeing my two girls all dressed up in their wedding finery made my heart sing. And taking out all 112 bobby pins from Anna's hair later that night left us all in giggles.

In any event, I'll try to post more frequently, but no promises, because life is life...I'll do it as often as I can.
