Summersummersummersummer

My grades are in, and Summer is here! Of course it is 55 degrees and pouring down rain here at the coast but that is OK! 

The weekend was spent on house projects--Tim built a holder for our kayaks so they can move out of the garage, and we planted the plants we got in the new planters. I mowed and weed whacked. I also sat in a cozy chair and read a book and knit and I COULD CONCENTRATE--the book was Pretty Things by Janelle Brown. It's about con artists. I kind of love con artist stories, and I also love art theft stories. WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT ME?

I worked on several knitting and tiny needle projects. This is the moon one--it now has something like 425 stitches on the needle and yikes.


Mana is doing great! Ann sent this little video of her!

There's a very good shot of her face at the end.

To celebrate summer, I went to the Safeway in Lincoln City (about 30 minutes from here) and brought lots of protein. And veggies. And other stuff. Our little store is fine with dairy stuff and snacks, but not so much with everything else.  Everyone was wearing a mask, everyone was social distancing,and everyone was nice. I guess the 7:30 am timeslot if the winning one!

You work so hard at being an excellent instructor. Congratulations for SUMMER. The cria is so graceful already. I wondered if she was looking for milk? I'm sure she knows who her momma is. Is she eating from the ground already too? She is beautiful. I like how they all interact so quietly.

Quite the little explorer, Mana. It's almost like she's thinking, "Grass? That's it? Can a girl get a milkshake or something?"

Summer --- the academic in me celebrates, the hot-natured/sweating/heat headaches me wants to skip the whole thing and get to Fall.
