-hot "oh so, I am tired of it" hot hot humid weather
-yarn crawl to different yarn stores (more on that later) with my sister
-more food:  gluten free pizza**with homegrown tomatoes, basil, oregano and mozzarella cheese (phew spell checker did not like how I was spelling that cheese-geez)
-car knitting, project finishing, book reading
-talking talking talking with family-laughing, smiling and reminiscing childhood days
-outdoor deck sitting, cold drinks in hand, enjoying a summer early evening before goodbyes
