Good Start

Image hosted by
We arrived a little late to the football game in Columbus to the sound of Needville's fight song, which could mean only one thing--a Bluejay touchdown. We were treated to a beautiful sky as the sun went down. You can see a little color above the scoreboard, but the real show was behind us.

I captured it as best as I could, but as you know, it's always better in person. We heard the fight song a few more times and at the end of the game the score was Needville 33, Columbus 13. A good night for the Jays. The band gave a good performance too. They are waiting for new uniforms to arrive, so they just wore bluejeans and band t-shirts. A blessing really, because the temperature was close to 90 degrees even after the sun had set.

After the game, we headed for Georgetown to visit my son's girlfriend for her 18th birthday. Since we were so close, I couldn't pass up visiting The Bluebonnet Yarn Shoppe. It's a really nice shop with lots of yarn to choose from. I didn't buy any yarn though, just a pair of circular needles in a size I've been needing for a while.

My knitting has slowed down since I sent in my donation to The Preemie Project. My hand needed a little rest. However, today I might cast on something new. I'm anxious to try out the Llama yarn I bought in Kansas. I don't have much to work with, so it will probably end up being a simple garter stitch shawl, knit on large needles to give it a lace effect. We'll see.


  1. I got to see many of your donations while helping Laura organize. Everything you made was so great - even more beautiful in person than in a blog photo.

    I'm burning nervous energy reading blogs and knitting right now while I listen to a New Orleans radio station online (oh I wish I had cable today). My father in law refused to evacuate, and had a tree fall onto his house. Luckily, he is safe - at least for now. My in-laws live in the Covington/ Mandeville area, and I lived in NOLA for a few years.

  2. I'm sorry I missed you on Sat. at the Bluebonnet Yarn shop. I'm usually there on Sat., but I was a little under the weather. :( Maybe next time......

  3. On, you bluejays,
    On, you bluejays....

    Now I'm homesick:)
    Sounds like you guys had a great time.
