Lunch on the Back Porch

One of the great things about having lunch at
The Old Brick House Deli here in Jeff City, 
in addition to the yummy food we enjoy each week,
is that we can eat on the covered back porch.

That's exactly what we did this afternoon 
even with the temp in the 80s 
with humidity that almost matched.  
So happy Summer is almost upon us.
Something like a day and a half til it arrives ! ! 

Ahhh, a Muffaletta Sandwich with 
a side of House Salad.  
As you can see
I couldn't wait to dig in
and did so before I thought of taking a pic to show you.

After we got home,
my just finished 
designed by Alana Dakos 
was ready for photographing.

Took it out front and draped over an, oh, so
evergreen bush
and snapped away.

 I used a wonderful, wonderful yarn for this beauty.
The yarn is a blend of 75% Merino Wool, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk

It is sooooo snuggly.  
Can't wait for the three months plus a day and a half for Autumn to arrive so I can wrap my self in style.

These lovely shaped leaves are what caught my eye
and my heart.
Just had to have it for myself.  :^)

In the meantime
I'll be working on another pair of sox!!!!




  1. Lovely indeed. You will be in style come this Fall.

    1. Isn't it just ! ! Alana has some terrific designs in her book.
      They each can be seen on Ravelry.

  2. I love their muffaletta's!

    At least you were warm. I froze last night at guild. Sorry I didn't get over to say hi. Guess I was jealous, you looked nice and comfortable with your 3/4 sleeves on!

    1. I could die for those muffaletta, especially in their wrap.
      Their salad's The Best In Town ! !

      Patti, I saw you in line for Treats
      But then lost track of ya.
      Sure missed saying, " Hi !"

      I not only had had on my to,
      But a shirt on top of that.

      Some one asked that the thermostate be turned down
      Guess no one heard the plea. :*)


  3. YUM, YUM -- good food at The Brick House.
    Your shawl is beautiful--perfect for a cool autumn afternoon.

    1. Not that I'm wishing away our fantastic warm weather,
      and that last few days, sunny skies,
      but can't wait 'til fall.

  4. Mmmm, yummy! Both the sandwich and the shawl!!

    1. As you can tell, I'm eager to be able to wear this beauty.
      this 80 degree weather
      with all it's humidity . . .
      this won't happen for a few months
      Thanks for stopping by
      and I'll be returning the favor soon, Gail


  5. I almost fell off my chair when I saw you had posted!!! Have missed your excursions, and your FO's. Shawl is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Can't wait to see it in person!!!

    1. Well, it has been a while, hasn't it.
      I've be busy
      visiting with family

      hugs for stopping by

  6. That shawl turned out great. No wonder you are wishing your life away to wear it. As we all know, autumn will be here sooner than we think, however that's not a guarantee you can wear it on the 1st day of autumn if the weather decides to stay hot. I think I'm the only person who doesn't like the salad at TBH. It's too bitter to me.

    1. Ohhh, the TOBH Salad is soooo calorie-heavy
      besides, I've been addicted to it
      since the first bowl full
      MORE THAN ten years ago.
      Can't get enough of it ! ! ! !

      Not really wishing the months/season away
      but can not wait to wear this shawl.

      It's been said,
      Orange is the new Black

      It's hot ! ! ! !


  7. I am so jealous. TOBH is one of the things I miss most about JC.
    And now to make you jealous: I went to the Loopy Ewe about 3 weeks ago. Bought myself some lovely Cascade Heritage sock yarn for a shawl. Found myself coveting a Schact Ladybug spinning wheel so I had to leave.
