I had this post planned a week ago. Over a week ago. Really. I just got completely slammed with work – the stay up at the computer till 1:30 a.m. kind of work. Every night. Since Labor Day ended.
Oh yeah, Labor Day. We were blessed, after having the crappiest weather ever on my birthday weekend, to have 3 glorious beautiful days in a row. Days like I don’t remember ever having on Labor Day weekend. I took off (right, you’re supposed to commemorate the Labor, not actually do it) and so did my mom (yes, we were both supposed to work that day) and headed to the beach with our knitting. That’s right, knitting. Mine looked like this for much of the weekend.
A wonderful blue sky, no?
My mom forgot her cable needle and she’s not a fan of the needless method of cabling – so a seagull was nice enough to lend her a hand. or a wing.
It was a great weekend, for sure. I’m sad summer’s over. I know, it isn’t till 9/23, but it’s all rainy now. And the beach days are gone for me.
I’ve been cooking some lately. Here’s some Tomato Bread Soup from Bill Telepan and Dimply Plum Cake from Dorie Greenspan. Unfortunately, I left the cake out on the counter covered (because who wants cold coffee cake?) and this morning found it all moldy. There was half a cake left. Bye cake.
The pets have been good – but I think Kennedy may be annoyed that I work so much and he’s taking it out on the dog.
In more knitting news, I’ve picked up my ribby cardi again and did 3/4 of a sleeve on my 3 day weekend. I guess maybe that’ll be my Rhinebeck sweater. Hey, RHINEBECK. That’s coming up really soon, ain’t it.
In final news for today, I’m contemplating this purchase now that beach weekends are over. Should I?
