Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Weekend with grandkids

We spent the weekend with the grandkids. It is great living close enough that we can visit on the weekends or whenever we want. Not like before when we lived so far away we only got to see them twice a year.

So we had plenty of time for this:

and this:

We also played with trains, with baby dolls, and pretend shopping. They have a little shopping cart and lots and lots of plastic food! One will take the cart and the other will take the baby stroller with the baby (of course!) and walk through the house pretending they are going to Wal-Mart. Then when they get back from "Wal-Mart," they cook the food for gramma. yum yum!

On Saturday, we went to see the Texas Rangers play the Cleveland Indians. Everyone was excited. The kids brought their gloves and the #1 finger to wave. We were there in time to see some batting practice. Then the clouds rolled in, then the thunder and lightening started, and then rain! We were lucky enough to be sitting up under the cover so we did not have to run out of the rain. Because of the lightening they asked all the fans to leave the upper decks. We waited hoping the it wouldn't last long.

After a 1 1/2 hr rain delay, the game finally started. The kids had gone through most of their snacks by then and after a long day with no nap! they were still behaving well. By the end of a very long 4th inning it was Rangers 7, Indians 1. We thought we could safely leave and the Rangers would keep their lead. HA! Double HA!! We got home, quickly turned the game on only to see it was tied! Sadly the Rangers lost, 8-7. But happily the Indians won! Isn't it great when you get to see both your favorite teams play?!

I did manage to get a little knitting done this weekend. I usually try to take some mindless knitting for the car ride so this weekend I worked on dishrags. (I'm finally getting a start on some Christmas gifts) : )
