But the heat, rain, and squirrels finished them off, so we finally cut them all down.
Making progress on my Imagine When shawl, most of it knit on the beach. Knitting is wonderful that way. Whenever I wear this one, I'll remember that Meredith gave me the yarn for pet sitting, which will remind me of all the things I saw in New York, and how much of it was knit on the beach. So many memories knit into one item.
Speaking of the beach, we have enjoyed a long streak of gorgeous weather: low humidity, cooler temperatures, and crystal clear water. We had our AC off and windows open for a full week. In August!
A friend brought her paddle board over one day and that's my youngest daughter on the left, getting a lesson. She did a great job on it! I've wanted one since last summer and I'm looking on Craigslist for a good end of the season deal.
I also scored a copy of this book at the library last week and I'm almost finished with it; it's definitely a gripping story. I'm slowing down now to stretch it out; it's one of those books you want to rush through but also don't want to finish, if that makes sense.
I took another selfie, to remind myself how much better I look when I'm relaxed and stress-free.
I should take lessons from Gracie, who seems to have her priorities straight.
Three different days, three different naps.
The life of a cat, eh?
