It is grey and wet here in eastern PA and difficult to get motivated and back to work. It was such a nice, long weekend break. I hope everyone had a great holiday.
We celebrated the 4th with a cookout at Colin & Mailing's on the 4th. It was a pretty muggy day, and Fletch and I bugged out by 8 p.m. Friday was more of the same muggy weather. We were going out to pick up Colin & Mailing's share at the CSA farm and got there by 10:30. We didn't know that shares typically aren't ready until Noon. But, we went out to the fields to pick some of our stuff - peas, strawberries and beans (green, yellow and purple). And flowers!!
A messy kitchen table, but gorgeous flowers!!
But holy cow it was hot in the fields! Luckily everything else was picked for us. Let me just say there was SO MUCH! Really, a share is too much for 2 or even 4 people. We kept some of the veggies and took a lot of them over to Colin & Mailing's since they were only away for the weekend.
Saturday morning I went back over to Colin & Mailing's to feed to cats, ran a few errands and then hung out at home. My friend Leslie, her daughter Jaimie and her granddaughter Emory arrived a little after 4 p.m. We had a quick, easy dinner with Fletch and then we girls headed over to Colin & Mailing's to feed the cats and spend the night. We ended up all going to bed early - between the heat and humidity (and their all day driving), we were beat. Plus they wanted to hit the road early Sunday morning to drive to Rhode Island. And they were on the road before 6:30 a.m.! A very short visit, but so good to see them all. I fed the cats and headed home. Later in the morning, Dee and I met up for coffee and knitting.
The Rabbit Hole socks are now finished!!
So pretty! Love the yarn and the colors. And, yes, a new pair of socks (or rather one sock) was cast on last night. The cuff was completed while watching the season finale of Endeavour.
And that's a wrap on the weekend! Hope you all had fun too.
