Summer Days

We are having a delightful summer! Larry and I went back to Saugituck, Michigan for three days, and had an even better time than last year. If only we hadn't forgotten our camera. LOL! My sister, Sara, came for a few days, and we made her grandson a pair of little man socks. It was such fun to knit alongside my sister.


Loving the beautiful colors of summer.



These are Sara's birthday socks. It's been an incredibly hot summer, but she'll enjoy them in a few months.






Our brother, Peter, joined us for dinner one evening. Sara and I were knitting like crazy that evening, because she was leaving the next day and we wanted to finish the socks. Luckily Peter is used to conversing with females who can knit and talk at the same time. We were sorry our sister Janet couldn't be there to knit and chat, but she lives a long way away, and travel is expensive.


I hope you, too, are enjoying the season. Of course for some of you it's winter, but winter in Australia looks a lot like summer here!


Our pool reached it's all time 15 year high temperature of 85 degrees! Pretty sweet.

Thanks, Daisy! I am enjoying summer so very much - we look forward to this all year.

Thanks, Lori! I visited your garden - gotta love watching things grow.

Miss Ginny, we had a delightful time knitting together, and you're right, we have to enjoy summer, but I am trying really hard not to think about snow. :>}

Diana your time with your sister and brother sounds so wonderful what a lovely photo of you all outside. I only wish I could have joined you also.
Enjoy summer.

Suzanne, wouldn't that have been a great party? I wish you could have been there, too! (And Daisy, and Lori, and Ginny, and Lucy, and Tine, and Lisa, and Jodie, and Heather!)

You really are busy! I think its ace that you and your sister knitted the pair of socks between you! I love it in summer with the long bright evenings which make it possible for people to visit and spend the evenings together, without worrying about getting home in the dark!

The long hours of daylight are my favorite part of summer, too, Heather. The sock project was a lot of fun. Sara was such a good sport about it, as she hadn't knit anything in about 45 years, and then it was a doll blanket. She bravely learned to knit in the round and turn a heel and graft a toe all in two days.
