Full Swing of Summer Living
We are in summer mode full swing! I'm still waking up early in the morning but there is a slow beat to the start of the day. I love when the sun is out at 5:40 a.m., just glorious! Frodo wakes and then proceeds to sleep some more on the couch. He is not a morning person, err, dog. He wakes up around 11 a.m. So far we haven't seen a rabbit inside the fenced in area. Phew!
On Thursday I spent some time in my studio balling up my yarn winnings. Not one single tangle, so that was impressive. I still live my knitting life without a swift. It's how I live on the edge of life. This weekend will be the start of a simple sock cast on.
I've found my rhythm for cooking for three people instead of two people. I do miss the two people cooking because there are more leftovers and less cooking (that means more knitting). Even though we are in the midst of summer living, I've started looking at the fall calendar and scheduling out some mini trips. Checking two to three calendars -virtual and paper- is an undertaking. Pairing down what days are open. Ah, I love doing this task.
Tracey did a summer list and now I find I need to do one as well. Summer for me is:
-salads (with avocados)
-watermelon (with salt!)
-wearing my visor on a walk
-too many bugs
-toads, grasshoppers, lightening bugs, butterflies, bees, dragonflies, locusts and cicadas
-ducklings at the pond
-walkers, bikers, fishermen (and teen fisherwomen) seen on my walk
-picnics, corn on the cob, grilling everything and anything
-reading books on the swing
-knitting on the swing
-having a kid home every now and then
-visiting family and family visiting
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
