How was your weekend? Mine is still going strong since it's Labor Day weekend. Today, I'm sitting in my family room listening to the rain outside. It's been steady, soothing and lulling me into a relaxed state of mind.
The past few days as I drove home, the resident heron who lives around here has been sunning himself/herself near the pond's edge at the bottom of my road. I took that photo from my car with my iphone. Not too bad! The best camera is the one in your hand.
All the signs of fall are around me, thank goodness, I was weary of the heat and humidity. Give me drizzly rain and degrees under eighty for now. I've been wearing jeans and sometimes a long sleeve cardigan and reveling in the comfort of autumn arriving soon.
Our daughter and son in law visited over the weekend. We spent the afternoon in a neighboring town, walking, sight seeing, shopping and of course eating dinner out. Yesterday we had simple cookout at home of burgers and hotdogs. They are leaving sometime today maybe after lunch?
Because of Mary and her blog post last week, I bought one of the books that she quoted from on a delightful impulse. I started reading immediately when the book arrived and have been mulling over each and every sentence. I do love this little community where we share with each other what we are doing, thinking, reading, knitting and creating.
My knitting has been sparse because of my company but you and I both know that I will be resuming the knitting later on today. I have high hopes for two new cast ons as well.
So tell me about your weekend!
