A Brief Interlude
Sometimes Mondays

TGIF

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.

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!
