Sunday's farmers' market theme was Blues and Brews. The weather was stellar, the blues band excellent, the free beer samples from local breweries and a homebrew club oh so tasty.
The beer garden field was like a party within a party. I ran into someone I haven't seen since I was about 20 and enjoyed much of the day with knitter friends and other friendly folks. By the end, Scott was nearly sold out of baked goods, so he swapped a bit for some of those homebrews to take home and then sold the remaining items to one of his bakery accounts who didn't order enough for the weekend and left a message on our answering machine saying she'd take anything he could make to help her restock NOW. Sold out day = Yay!

We had Saturday fireworks and Sunday rocket launching, so much looking skyward this weekend. Outdoor cooking, outdoor eating, and plenty of soaking up the sunshine that has been absent for weeks.

My secret project is moving along nicely. I expect a couple more days with a mail delivery like this as part of the process.

I'd show some knitting pics, but nothing is pictureworthy right now. Oh, speaking of pictures, I can haz them! New camera purchased when I braved mall hell zone on Fri. I am so not a shopper. Anyway, back to the knitting, there's been progress on Scott's gansey, the green leafy wrap, a pair of socks (with a big boo-boo that may or may not end in a restart of one), and Leah's swallowtail shawl.

Rec'd word that Glastonbury Glassworks has been accepted as a vendor at Spa Knit and Spin in Maine this Feb. Looking forward to that.

Otherwise, there's another big project in the works, the research and discussion of which is taking up the remainder of our spare time. We're thiiis close to taking the plunge on it and then it'll get fun. Will talk about it here when we make the leap.

We've also been enjoying a house guest for the past few days. He's a spunky little imp whose morning energy results in an entertaining game between him and our big ol' Kodi girl.



Me in flannel jams. Shexay!

Oh my that was HILARIOUS, the ending was spectacular.

Your Kodi is so gentle and big and tolerant of the little spicy imp. Love it.

Maine in Feb.? Do you know how cold it is here in Feb.?

I just might make my way down to Freeport to attend.

But If you'd like a day or two of either down-hill or nordic skiing, I have a big house in the mountains; within six miles of two down-hill and three cross-country ski resorts.

A neighbor used to have a tiny dog (some sort of Korean terrior); it slept in a crate the size of a show box. But his attitude was bigger than the bull mastiff that lives next door, by a mile. She had lined the driveway/street with riverstones, probably about 30 of them. And that dog, with a bladder the size of a walnut at best, would mark every single stone during his morning/evening ritual. I'd sit and watch and laugh. Good things can come in very small packages.

What kind of camera? I just bought Consumer Reports which reviews them this month; I'm looking too.

Get yourself on Facebook so you can see pictures of our new puppy :p
