A Little Dinner and Some Stitchin'

Gentle Friends,  I tried for a couple of days to get this post up and finally, here it is Tuesday... it goes live.... oh well... we had a very quiet at home kind of weekend...except for the continuous fireworks blasting all over the City all last week and then Saturday night all night long. They finally stopped for the most part around 4am.  Then there were more on Sunday night and again last night.... you'd think at some point they'd run out.  The weather has been glorious the last few weeks in the upper 50's and low 60's with tons of wind blowing down off of Twin Peaks... I love the Summers here by the Bay!!! It gets so chilly that after the sun goes down I flick on the heat to take the chill off the rooms.

We started off the Holiday weekend Friday evening running down to South City to the In-N-Out for dinner... a quick 22 minutes in the drive-through and it was home again for a delicious fun meal.  Usually, I don't like the fries they serve, limp and greasy, but from TikTok, I learned that if you order them "well done" they are really very tasty, super crunchy, and not greasy!!


I also got some stitching done of the Beatitudes...

... a change I made was to add in an additional green color for the trees...  everything the same green was becoming monotonous...

That's about it for today sports fans, things are about the same, we're still working from home.   My Director wants everyone to stay away from Berkeley until after Labor Day and I'm fine with that, I like wearing sweats every day!!

Thanks for stopping by do stop again.  Stay Safe!

Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!


  1. It sounds like you and I like the same kind of weather. We haven't needed to turn on the AC all summer. Today's high is the low 60's! The Beatitudes is turning our very pretty!

  2. GAH! Haven't had an In-n-Out in AGES! Your Beatitudes is coming along "beautifully" (ok, you knew SOMEONE had to say it LOL).... 50's? 60's? REALLY??? Here in the Cold, Cold, Land of Nod we've been in the upper 80's for over a week...unheard of here!! ~Robin~

  3. Your WIP is looking good. I would love the 50s and 60s; it has been 90+ and oh so humid for a week or more now. I'm ready for fall!

  4. The Beatitudes is looking great! Glad you're enjoying your weather. It's hard to believe that our highs this week are forecast to be 50+ degrees higher than yours. Even our nighttime temps are upper 80s, lower 90s. Geez!

  5. Enjoy your extended work-from-home. Beatitudes is looking so pretty. I like the change of floss for the trees. Never had In-n-Out.

  6. Dearest Edgar: I have heard that the in and out burgers are the best as are their fries.
    Beatitudes is a lovely stitch, I am like you I change colors.
    Have a wonderful week.
