Salt Life…

Greetings from Cape Cod!  Oh how I miss this place.  The summer traffic, not so much.  I am having a chill out day and thought a quick blog post might be fun.

Last weekend my family and I went to Lauray Caverns in Virginia and honestly it was magnificent.  If you are in that neck of the woods I highly recommend it.


This is a totally mind-blowing picture.  There is a natural spring on the bottom which acts as a reflecting pool for the ceilings.  Who needs photoshop when mother nature does this for you.


This was really fascinating too.  Here you were allowed to throw in money and make a which.  They have raised more that a million dollars that they have donated.

In knitting news, my sweater is in the process of being sewn up and I left it home.  Too bulky to schlep around.  I am working on my Olympic knitting, one is a wrap, Nash by Alicia Plummer and the other is a shawl with beads by Romi Hill called Latticework.  I won’t finish either before the end of the summer games.

Are you knitting along with the games?  I’ve enjoyed the girls gymnastics and all the swimming and was lucky to catch some equestrian events this am.

I hope you are staying cool as the humidity has been brutal.

Knitting picture progress next blog post.

Until then, be well!



Just a few more…

So close to being done with one big dyeing project and then on to the next. It was nice to have a week off and give my hands a little rest from all the wringing out of yarn. Really it’s a good thing I am almost done because I got the flu shot yesterday and my arm is sore right up to the shoulder.

It is a mild day here in MD with slightly cloudy skies. Hope it stays this way so it does not heat up too much. I would hate to turn on the AC in October.

My favorite colors today are teal, navy, orange, gold and brown. I could play with teal, navy and brown all day….they are what is speaking to me today.

Tomorrow I will spend the day with my hubby of 15 years in Old Town Alexander, lunching and shopping without our son. Since we don’t have a sitter, time alone is a challenge and a rarity. I am looking forward to window shopping. The bead store is up there and so is Olio, an Olive Oil bar and the cheese shop along with many others I have yet to discover. We will have fun and the weather is expected to be picture perfect which it wasn’t on our wedding day…we had rain.

Tomorrow is also my mom’s birthday! Yes, we got married on her birthday. She is getting harder and harder to buy for. Maybe something with catch my eye in Old Town tomorrow.

Well, I must run. Dinner won’t make itself and I have to light a fire under Bryce to get his homework done.

I wish you all a wonderful evening!
