Kitty time!

Fluffy puffy kitty and wool

This morning...

It is cool enough to enjoy tea with homemade pie.  Today will be one of errands, yarn dying, friends and music.  A good day.

A few weeks, well, maybe a month or so ago, I was wandering the vast expance that is a large hardware depot... And suddenly, I became overwhelmed with the idea to BUILD the workbench I was searching high and low for!  On the phone with my father, trying to convince myself that it could happen with my slim tool inventory, he offered to build it for me.  Woodworking is what he's always done- be it signs with our names on them, ornaments, shelves... This was a perfect plan. And so, I present his work, my new place of work. I love it. Tall, sturdy, oak topped and perfectly sized for my window. 

I am in love with this beast.

In other news, I also have new glasses! Hooray!!!!

They are green, and therefore match everything I care to wear!

We took a surprise (to me) quickie trip to the beach last weekend. The water was warm, the sky overcast, the waves lovely. Perfection.

Then there were fireworks, drinks, and music. We ended with a pool party. It was a wonderful weekend, I'm ready for another!
