Today is much cooler–I’m in my pajamas and even my toes are cold (thats not really saying much: my toes are always cold, but I’m actually considering putting on socks and a sweater). There’s a cool breeze coming in through the window and I can hear the most lovely bird sounds outside echoing in the trees. It’s nice to have a lazy morning before heading to work….
I’m moving slowly on projects because of the heat of the last couple of days–thankfully we should have a break for awhile and the crafting/knitting can begin again. My two daughters are making good use of my cottage even though I cannot, and are beading and sewing and creating lovely little things. You can always tell when they’re in there because they bring in one of their iPods and turn the music up loud….
We’re also getting ready for a trip from my sister and her family from California so much cleaning must be done (again!) and we’re trying to think of some fun trips to make and things to do. I think a picnic on Marys Peak is in order and a trip to the coast for some tidepooling and fossil finding. I’m also going to borrow the LCD projector from work and we’re going to hang a sheet on the barn to have a movie night under the stars one night. And, to top it all off, we saved our 4th of July fireworks so we’ll have a firework show one night with our s’mores. And of course there will be the annual Pride and Prejudice/Knitting 5 hour marathon for my mother, sisters and me. Sounds action packed, doesn’t it? Rest assured, there will be time for napping!
Off to dishes–must have the kitchen clean when Doug comes back with groceries….
