We're back from our trip. And it's Friday. . . just in time for TGIF.
T - Thinking About
We just spent a week in Colorado -- half of our time in Boulder, visiting Brian and Lauren, and then I spent the other half in Fort Collins, getting together with my sister while Tom visited his family in Cheyenne. Tom and I lived in Fort Collins for several years in the early 80s. He was in grad school at Colorado State University; I worked there. We got married when we lived in Fort Collins. Our life together . . . began in Colorado. But visiting now? I have to really search to find The Familiar! So much has changed in 30 years . . . Every now and again, as we were driving around, my "spidey-sense" would tingle, and I'd know I was close to something familiar. If you want a sense of time-marching-on, well . . . there's nothing quite like a visit to your old stomping grounds.
G - Grateful For
Spending time with people I love!
I - Inspired By
While in Fort Collins, my sister and I made a visit to The Loopy Ewe. I've never seen a more organized, neat yarn shop! So. Much. Yarn. We had a great time. I ended up with enough Wollmeise to knit a sweater (soon. . .), and my sister cast on for a Churchmouse Easy Folded Poncho that very afternoon. If you're ever in the vicinity, I highly recommend a visit.
F - Fun
While in Boulder, we had a great time playing disc golf with Brian and Lauren. Tom is a long-time disc golf player - starting with his grad school days at CSU (and he actually introduced Brian to the game years ago, back in Kalamazoo), so this was a real treat. (Disc golf . . . really needs it's own blog post; maybe next week. . .) We also sampled lots of Colorado microbrews and played pinball -- so there was plenty of fun!
Enjoy your weekend, everyone.
