It is grey and wet and in the 40's. That was our weather all day yesterday too. It feels like March!
Saturday was beautiful though (until the evening). I went out early to one of my favorite walking places - along the canal and walked 3.25 miles. There were a number of people out on the trail at 8:30, but there was not much wild life. I saw a few geese and one giant turtle. (Also, the skeleton on the bench was still there - lol.) We did some grocery shopping and late afternoon headed over to Colin & Mailing's. Dinner was wonderful:
Mussels and fries. There was also a salad with garden lettuce.
Toasted pecan cake (Smitten Kitchen) - SO GOOD!!
We sat outside for a little bit and had a very small fire, but soon it started raining.
Sunday morning Fletch and I *tried* to go to breakfast. First we went to our favorite diner and discovered it has gone out of business😟. We tried another place and it was so crowded and noisy that we left. The third place was so busy we couldn't get a parking space. We came home and I cooked bacon and eggs - lol. The rest of the day I spent cooking and cleaning. It was pouring rain and cold, so not a good day to be out and about anyway. I had to clean the guestroom as my friend Leslie is driving up from NC at the end of the week!! We have been friends for over 50 years. She's coming up for the party Colin & Mailing are throwing next Saturday (combination house warming and engagement party).
I did manage to start a new pair of socks!
Fun yarn. It is 100% superwash Baah La Jola and the colorway is "Grapefruit Sangria." So summery, isn't it? The pattern I'm doing is Down the Rabbit-Hole - a free pattern on Ravelry. Usually I knit the ribbing as K2, P2, but this time I'm following the pattern and K1 tbl, P1. I've done 10 rows...another 5 and I'll see what I think.
On the reading front, Fletch and I finished The Black Tulip by Alexandre Dumas (so good - very humorous in places) and started "Mysterious Island" by Jules Verne. We enjoyed "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" so much last year, we've decided to read another by Verne.
Hoping everyone had a great weekend (and better weather than we had/have).
