I've been spending a lot of time at the beach and in the yard during the past week. Both activities are relaxing, albeit in very different ways. While at the beach, I sit under the umbrella and knit, talk, and nap, with frequent trips to the water to cool off. When I work in the yard, I sweat profusely and get filthy, ripping up crab grass and digging up the nasty sand burr grass that makes up a large percentage of the grassy areas that border our sidewalks. And yet, the satisfaction I feel while doing this is relaxing in a different way. I can see how much progress I'm making and as I think I've mentioned before, it's very therapeutic to rip out the weeds with my hands!
I've continued work on my cowl; it's the 3 Color Cashmere pattern, only I'm using a multi-colored yarn called Crazy, so I'm ignoring the 3 color requirement.
No photos of Gracie this time, but I did take a picture of a random cat that lives in my daughter's apartment building:
Cats love windows, don't they?
