Anticipating… Rusty's return! He's been in California for most of the summer — art stuff, a residency, visiting family & friends, projects. I'm looking forward to having him back in residence here!
Celebrating… A nice stretch of warm & mostly dry weather ahead! It has been an awfully rainy (and humid) summer so far, so this is quite welcome.
Charmed by… this photo that Ann sent me last week with the caption: Casting off! Wedding dishcloth!!
Enjoying… The county fair! It opened on Tuesday, and Maddy & I went last night. I haven't been to that particular fair in many, many years… possibly since I was in junior high! I worked for my aunt during the summer between 7th & 8th grades. She was blowing glass back then and, in addition to sales, I painted/decorated the pieces that needed that sort of thing! We did the circuit all over WI & MN that summer… so much fun!
Anyway, we didn't go on a single ride, but we did tour every barn! The judge in the photo above — middle right, wearing jeans & plaid shirt, talking to young man with a sheep — was talking with that young man the entire time that we watched. He was so patient and you could tell that he was genuinely interested in sheep, but even more in demonstrating & explaining to every person there how to show their sheep in the best possible way.
I know the knitter of those 1st Place socks! I loved the whimsy of the little embroidery sampler pillow.
Some of it was pretty impressive! (FYI: You Can Do It Afghan is a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarns.)
I'm thinking that it might not be my last county fair of the year… there are three more within a :20-30 minute drive happening in the next month or so!
Knitting… Forest Mystery continues to grow!!
Looking forward to… A relatively uneventful weekend and a chance to get things cleaned up at home! Auntie Camp stuff sits atop a big pile o' other stuff that needs to be put away.
Planning… A trip!
Reading… The same stuff I've been reading.
Remembering… Hang time with the dude at Wednesday night's concert in the park. We spent a good part of that afternoon together, too.
Sewing… My craft/free time has been devoted to knitting the shawl, but there are some sewing projects on my mind and underway (in the pile)!
Watching… Game of Thrones… I've been knitting to it… currently on Season 5.
Wondering… What's up with you right now!?
