Music, Movies and More

MUSIC

Last Thursday afternoon, we drove to Indianapolis to see Jason Mraz and Gavin DeGraw at White River State Park. It is a very pretty park in downtown Indianapolis. We had great seats, the weather was warm and not too humid. The show was wonderful. Both guys are great musicians and very funny. They had just about everyone up and dancing (including Steve). 

On Friday we went to the amphitheater in Tinley Park to see John Mayer. Unfortunately this concert experience wasn't a wonderful as the one the night before. The sound was so bad that we left after the third song. It was really disappointing and Steve began a email/letter writing campaign on Saturday complaining about the bad sound system. It will be interesting to see if he gets any replies.

MOVIE

On Saturday afternoon we went to see Mamma Mia. We really enjoyed it. We are ready for another trip to Greece.

KNITTING PROJECTS

I started this Lady Eleanor shawl about a week ago. Buddy decided he needed to stand on it so it wouldn't get away while I took the picture. Several of the people in our knitting group, including Melissa, are knitting this shawl. I love this yarn, it is so soft and really easy to knit with. It is fun to see how everyone else's shawls are turning out. They are all using different yarns so they are all different sizes.



The pattern for these socks is called blueberry waffle. I think they are going to be my favorite so far. I love the colors in the yarn. They remind me of summer: watermelon, blue skies, green grass and water. I may have to get some more to make a scarf and some gloves for winter.

Yesterday we had a visit from our friends Ken and Marcia. They are in town to visit Marcia's brother and his family. They stopped by to see our apartment and then we went out to dinner. It was fun to spend some time with them.
