First Day of Vacation

It was a lovely day. I slept late woke at 5:30 when Mike's alarm went off. Rode to camp with Mike and Little Squid. Rode home with Mike. Spent some quality time with my husband. Rode to camp with Mike. Rode home with Mike and Little Squid (who made awesome time on the trip uptown and battled the headwinds manfully on the trip home). Set up a wick watering system for one of my tomato plants and basically had a lovely day.

Then Mom called and told me about this. Yup, kid bro' has a new job! Time to check out the biking in Pittsburgh. Any bloggers out there with housing, eating, general suggestions for that area?

On the to do list for day two: bring car in for oil change, take kids (after camp) to opthomologist and go combing the city looking for diet soda syrup for our Soda Club system.

Congratulations Josh! What a great job! You must be very proud of him. Is his NCAA blog the one I used to read during softball season? Sounds like you had a great first day. Here's to many more...and to just the right flavor for your new toy. *G*

Thanks for the shout out. Now Squid Knits will become my chief blogging outlet.

We're looking for a place large enough for a quartet of squids to visit comfortably.

Congratulations to Brother Squid! I know there's a blogger in Pittsburgh, but I can't remember who it is at the moment. If I remember, I'll comment again. Did you try Ravelry, searching by area?

Enjoy your vacation!!!
