It is mostly clear out there, but to me it looks more cloudy. I'm hoping the rain will hold off till tonight or tomorrow - I have plans for Fletch to grill wings tonight:)
How was your weekend? Mine was very nice. Dee and I met up at the Landsale Farmers' Market for a change from our usual venue. We walked around a bit, bought some corn (not great...) and I got tomatoes and peppers from Frank. Frank is a high school classmate of Colin & Mailing's and he runs the Kimberton CSA. It was nice to see him again and catch up a bit.
After the Market, we headed to a Manhattan Bagel for coffee (and I did have a bagel), knitting and chatting. Bonus for us - there was live bluegrass music and the band/group was really good. Fun times.
On my way home I stopped at Colin & Mailing's place to check mail and water houseplants. And, after that I went to the laundromat to wash a few clothes and some sheets. A thrilling afternoon. I will say it is wonderful to get two loads of wash done at the same time. Lugging back all the wet things is not so much fun! Hopefully I will hear today about when the repair guys can come back with the motherboard to (finally) fix my washer (hopefully for good!).
Sunday was a very nice day too. I had more laundry to do, but that went quickly and I had a lot of time for stitching! Fletch put a final handrail along the garden fence and picked more green beans (so prolific this year) and I spotted some tomatoes to pick!!
The Sungold Cherry Tomatoes (so sweet) are finally producing and I spotted the first of the bigger tomatoes. These are by no means huge, but I'll take them!
Fletch and I also came up with alternate dates for our vacation - these are before Colin & Mailing will be up. I've emailed my 4 bosses and so far have heard back from one (she is OK with the alternate dates). Hopefully this will work (and, Dee, I should be able to make BOTH fiber festivals!!).
Enjoy these last days of August. I'm excited that September will be here on Friday!!
