Hope everyone had a good weekend. Ours was stinking HOT. Oy! The humidity was nasty. Luckily by Sunday afternoon a bit of a breeze popped up for a little while. Today strong thunderstorms are forecast for this afternoon with possible flash floods. Hopefully yoga will still be a go tonight.
Saturday I took the car in for an oil change. I was looking forward to "found time" in the waiting room, but as luck would have it, I was out of there in under 30 minutes!! We had on and off-again showers all day, so in between the drops, I picked up wine, went to the library and did grocery shopping. Nothing too exciting.
The mail, however, brought a lovely surprise from Kim who has more contests than anyone I know. Look what was in my fun package:
Cute knitting girl socks, some darning needles (sorely needed) and a great little journal that will be perfect for knitting ideas, etc. Thanks Kim!! (Twiddle Mitt yarn in the background)
Father's Day ended up being so-so. We met Colin & Mailing at a restaurant for brunch/lunch. It's a place we've been to previously and enjoyed, but Fletch didn't like his meal and thought the restaurant was way too noisy. As Colin said, "a failed Father's Day." I think everyone was a bit addled by the heat and humidity.
I did manage to do a small amount of knitting and a little bit of stitching on the sampler I unearthed from the (large) WIP pile of stitching. But no pictures of that. Instead how about some garden produce? First up the Hungarian Wax peppers are beginning to produce (onions in the background - both red and white).
Our red romaine lettuce is Out of Control! It is so tall and despite the heat it has not gone to seed yet. We can't eat it fast enough.
We also have Oak Leaf lettuce, Arugula and Butter Crunch Lettuce for salads. All are producing really well.
And, for a pretty picture, here is the window box outside our kitchen window. Fletch just picked up the petunias last week and they are gorgeous cascading over the box. Love them!!
Hoping everyone has a wonderful week!
