Hot Child in the City

Whew it was a hot one this weekend. I am not sure that California got the memo that it is October and temperatures are suppose to be heading down not up. Nevertheless, we managed to enjoy the sunshine without sweating to death.

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival took place in Golden Gate Park this weekend. I love this festival as it is free and the music is pretty good. Don’t let the festival name deceive you, it isn’t all banjo music. The stage we were at had more funk/alternative music.  We saw Deltron 3030 (of the Gorillaz fame), Built to Spill, and Social Distortion.

On Sunday, we headed down to Santa Clara, CA for the San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs game. It was expected to be an exciting game as our former quarterback (Alex Smith) now plays for the Chiefs. Our morning started with a tailgating party and some serious people watching. The excitement of the other fans was electrifying. There were grills cooking, music pumping, and footballs flying.   This was our first time going to see the 49ers in their new stadium, so we were even more excited.

Well Levi’s Stadium did not disappoint.  There were so many levels and observation decks, one could really get lost just trying to get to the bathroom. The actual game was a nail biter as the score stayed pretty close in the first half. However, the Niners pulled ahead in the last quarters and we won the game. Way to go Niners!

Now it is Monday and it is time to get back into the groove of things. I am feeling a little slow going so hopefully I perk up soon. Happy Monday.

Weekending in San Francisco

This weekend was the annual Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in Golden Gate Park. I am not necessarily a bluegrass fan, but who can say no to sun, fun, and wine!

I started on the DIY Byzantine Chain Bracelet featured on Craftgawker. I plan on adding buttons to it to change up the design.

I also am working on the knitted coasters from Craftgawker. My friend is getting married this weekend so all of the coasters together will spell out their name.
