Here it is, September, Labor Day holiday weekend. I’ve been off work for 3 days… Those days went too fast!

We finally got some rain! For some of the farmers it was too little too late.
Last night a storm formed right over the area I live, we got 4″ of rain! I could not believe my eyes when I checked the rain gauge. My sister-in-law lives 5 miles away and only got half an inch… Crazy!!

Went out with a girlfriend Saturday, had a wonderful time!

Went to Red Robin, had a delicious lunch and I love their strawberry lemonade! So refreshing!!

Then I hooked up with another girlfriend and we indulged ourselves at Sweet Frogs, frozen yogurt and so many wonderful toppings! There must have been 30 or more to choose from, seriously! =)

My final food indulgence was crabs, it was the first I’d had all summer, they were smallish but packed with delicious crab meat.

Maryland Blue Crabs are a delicacy.

I have to share with you all my most current knitting project. It’s called The Bee-Keepers Quilt. It’s so fun! I am using Madeline tosh DK yarn to make my puffs.

I had 6 different skeins of yarn, I ordered 3 more on Saturday from Yarnmarket.com, I’ll probably get them this Friday. I’ll probably order 4-5 more, just depends on how things are looking.

On a final note… This is the newspaper clipping of my brothers murder. He was 22 yrs. old when he died. His “girlfriend” stabbed him… She got 7 years. It’s been 23 years, happened September 1989, seems like yesterday.
So rest in peace Richie.

My wonderful neighbors have so many beautiful flowers, the variety of flowers makes for excellent photography. However… I don’t know what a lot of these flowers are, their names etc…

Some of the trees around my office burst with blooms so thick and white it looks like ‘snow”!

This past week the temperatures here in SOMD reached the 90’s. Now we don’t get a very long spring here in lower Maryland, but come on now Mother Nature…give us a break! Save that 90 degree+ temps for “real summer”
I did manage to weather the heat and take some nice pictures of the beautiful blooms that I am so lucky to have surrounding my home.
