This was the sky at the start of the Rox game on Friday night. Grey but not rainy. However, by the middle of the 5th inning, the sky had changed and the rain had arrived. Sheets of rain, to be exact.
The field was covered in the hopes that this would turn out to be just a rain delay and not a rain cancellation. However, see how wet this kid is?
Yeah. The game was called due to the weather. And the rest of the weekend pretty much followed that path. There would be bright skies for a while and then it would rain.
I spent all afternoon Saturday watching 24 and alternating between spinning and knitting. This was the first real quality time Abigail and I have had together. We are getting to know each other but she is taking some time to adjust to her new surroundings. The orifice opening is exceptionally small and that can be frustrating for me. And occasionally the newly spun yarn doesn’t want to wind onto the bobbin. Any of you CPW owners out there that are willing to share advice, I’d love to hear it.
Sunday we had a bit of company from Brant, Heather and Ambrynn. The weather wasn’t very cooperative and we were forced indoors for most of the day but Ambrynn had fun playing with some toys and reading books and walking around. Yes, I said walking! We did manage to cook on the grill and had some of the most delicious chicken kabobs I’ve ever had. Even Ambrynn got to have some! There was also hot Italian sausage and potato salad and hamburgers and corn on the cob. We ended with pineapple upside down cake for dessert. Yumm.
When I went outside to wave goodbye to the kids I had to take a sky picture. It’s much prettier than the one from Friday and a fitting end to a great weekend – in spite of the weather.
