Around here, the weather feels like mid summer with humidity and the thunderstorms that pop up at a whim. Frodo has been policing the pool and has saved one toad out of many since they love to jump in but cannot jump out. Of course he's been saving salamanders for the last two weeks as well. He is living a full life. Yesterday was the first 'I dropped the frisbee in the pool now you go get it' game. He is quite predictable.
June days are lovely - warmth sets in and jeans are set aside for capris or shorts. I wake up to the day breaking and Holly sits at the side window, watching the birds, swishing her tail in excitement.
On Monday we walked by the river and then explored a new trail to us. There was a dirt path down to the creek which we successfully navigated, however when I was walking back up hill I tripped and fell on my face and wrist. My husband drove me to urgent care for x-rays and an examination. My wrist was okay (phew!) and my nose, while swollen, seemed to be okay as well. Every day the swelling goes down and I look more like myself.
Some adventures I would rather skip!
I spent the whole week sitting around, knitting and reading. I enjoy getting lost in a book for hours on end. I am starting a pair of socks this weekend and originally pulled out the pink/maroon color way (I am in a PINK mood!) and then thought twice about it and pulled out the olive/brown color way instead. These socks will be gift giving socks. I've got six people in mind that could use a pair of wool socks. I'll update you on which color way I choose.
We have no plans for the weekend, today someone from the appliance store is coming to check out my refrigerator (bought in November!) because the door alarm goes off when the doors are shut. I hope it is something easy to fix. I'm sure we will be doing the daily walks (on flat surfaces, ha ha ha). Drawing and painting are also penciled into my days, it's been a week since I've done either.
