August 1st! Woot! You know what that means, don't you? Summer is half over, and then it will be glorious autumn.
Not a whole heck of alot has been happening here, aside from extreme humidity. I will say, it has been a banner year for tomatoes- we need to find the positive side of everything.
I haven't been knitting, really. I did finish another plain Peace Fleece pullover, but does that actually count? I've also been working on some embroidery and quilting projects- which I will show you next time, and making myself walk for 45 minutes every evening.
Oh, and in case you haven't been hanging around Ravelry- the Red Queen photo shoot was done yesterday:
Notice the giant Queen of Hearts playing card in the hat? Just my sense of humour.
A few weeks ago, FC, Laura and I went on a road trip to North Bay, where we were lucky enough to arrive just in time for shad fly week, and also stopped by at the Commanda Lake General Store- which is now a museum- a kinda creepy one at that.
It was oppressively hot, even up north (and this is actual bush country)- and the beautiful Lake Nipissing's water levels are way down this year.
I brought back some pottery, and we had a wonderful dinner at the Ram's Head in Callendar, then we headed home.
Any plans for prime knitting season? I see that some of the magazines are out already, so get your needles ready.
