My summer vacation

I hate summer. I hate the heat. I even hate fruit. Really. I don't find anything redeeming about the summer. I would be just as happy to live in a year round winter. When I moved to Northern California I thought this was somewhat the case. No, another bait and switch.

Good thing I have my backyard because it is the only thing that has saved me.


Oh and here is the garden. I do have figs growing but all other stuff is vegetables.

No pictures

Have nothing to show you today but thought that I would post something. It has been so hot that there really isn't much moving going on. Not much to do to cool off around here. We did eat dinner outside last night and that seemed to help a little.

Sorry this summer has been slow on the blog stuff. Knitting has taken the background and I have just been trying to tie things up at the shop and get on with big new plans. Then again, there is the matter of being a nervous wreck over Mr. Yarn (soon to be "Mr Culinary") getting a job where I can just stay where I am. Lots going on...

Instead of knitting

Fishing fun

So, the engagement party was a success. Everything went great. I was dead on my feet but it was well worth it. So at 4:00 in the morning we all got up with hangovers and went fishing. We had a great time. We all bonded.

I am still knitting but I can't show you because it is a gift for a special baby to be.

Mr Yarn is in India (or should be there any minute) and I am still cleaning the kitchen.

What is happening

So, I haven't had too much to say or show this last few weeks. I am getting back in the groove after having some bad news, being sick and getting back from vacation. I promise that knitting stuff will resume as soon as I find the camera and actually start knitting again. I am almost done with the Hanne Falkenberg "Ballerina".

Other than that I don't have much to report. I have 40 people coming to an engagement party on Saturday and I will be meeting Annie's in-laws to be.

So cool

Eagles nest

Here is another picture from our trip. It was an Eagle's nest on San Juan Island. We even got to see the eagle but I didn't get a picture of it. I didn't get this picture either but Donna did. I don't know why I am so bad about taking pictures when I go away.

Sorta back to life

Mona the camel

This is me kissing Mona the camel. Shutup...she was the cutest thing I ever saw. She lives on San Juan island and Gail and Michael took me to see her. Donna took the great picture. I wanted to take this camel home so that Lily could have a friend. No one would let me and Mr Yarn asked who would pick up the poop. Since Mr Yarn isn't that happy of a camper lately I didn't argue but the plan is to kidnap the adromidary (sorry Michael I KNOW it isn't a camel) next time we are on the island. It will be innocent enough.

So things have been busy here. Company for 3 weeks and a busy 4th. Hope everyone had a good 4th.
