Except for an early morning walk, and watering my quickly fading flowers, I spent the day inside. It's blazing out there...., but my husband did spend the better part of his day mowing. It's a big job, but when he's done it looks just like a park! This is a view from the upstairs bedroom looking out towards our studio out back. Leaf reflection is kind of cool I think... Our upstairs bedroom is practically a green house! A few of the plants have gotten so big, I imagine that if we ever sell this place the plants will either have to be cut down, or remain with new owners (heaven forbid that ever happens!).
Another view from the same window of our pond and wacky fence.
I'm knitting....yet another pair....of socks. Absolutely loving this new sock wool! The colors are scrumptious.... My sock knitting has vastly improved since my last pair. This is the fifth pair I've done, but it's taken me all five to really get it right. I've also got another set of #1 needles that are quite a bit longer than my previous set... fewer dropped stitches.
Here's sweet Willow reclining and catching her late afternoon cat nap. This nap closely follows her midday nap, which comes just on the tail end of her late morning kitty snooze. These naps usually take place upstairs shortly following her early morning doze on the screened porch. I've also included another peek at my doorstep rug, which is still under construction.
