Happy Memorial Day! Today we had lots of chicken and vegetables on the grill and it was fabulous. There was corn on the cob too - that is what makes it a summertime celebration. My friend came over earlier in the afternoon and we sat and knit outside by the pool while Frodo tried his best to put his frisbee into the pool.
Oh yeah, hey - the pool liner did have a leak and some young pool guy donned on a wet suit, went into our pool that is about 50 degrees and fixed it for us. Now to put in six inches of water...slowly since we have well water. We run the water hose for one hour three times a day.
Yesterday, my husband and I went to garage sales, driving on back roads we've never been on. I saw some beautiful houses, lovely gardens and enjoyed being out in the fresh air. I found tons of yarn at one house for only $8 (well worth around $100). That was quite the find! There's a photo of it on my instagram account if you want to see it.
We've got some more celebrating on Monday with our son for his birthday. We'll have a lunch out and probably more visits to bicycle shops. I am banking up all this good behavior in bike shops for future yarn shopping. I'll confess, my husband is more patient than I am. I guess that makes him a better person....
One more thing- I bought some yarn to do this shawl - I cannot wait for yarn mail to arrive so I can cast on. I'm itching to start this one -and yes I did go through all of my stash and nothing quite matched.
Stay tuned for my next blog post about the "perfect" sweater.
