This has not been a great summer for me, but we go on, don't we?
I worked up a hat last week to use a skein of Malabrigo Mecha that I bought on impulse because the colors were so gorgeous. It's the Everyday Brew pattern and I'm going to put it in the gift drawer. My foot is propped up and looks normal, doesn't it? I'm happy to say I do NOT need surgery, a welcome piece of good news.
I decided to try Sinkmates, a new-to-me dishcloth pattern; I'll let you know how it turns out. It looks a bit weird in this photo. Also reading Everyone Brave is Forgiven, and enjoying it. Apparently I'm reading a lot of British WWII novels this summer.
I have a habit of scavenging and I lucked into these beauties one day this week. I think I have about fifteen of them, which is like finding $50 on the curb. Not sure where they will go but I'm starting with edging the corner flower bed. Or I will as soon as the temperatures drop a little bit.
Melissa and I went to a farm stand this afternoon and they had a little petting zoo area.
The poor turkey gets bullied a lot, so perches in the fence for protection, according to the farm stand girl.
These pigs were smart enough to get out of the sun.
Gracie watched the convention with me this week. I thought it was amazing to watch history being made and remembered feeling this way when Geraldine Ferraro was nominated as the first woman vice-president.
Say goodnight, Gracie!
