Today my day is filled with packing and organizing. I am heading off to Franklin, NC tomorrow with my youngest and a friend of his. We are going to visit our friends Lynda and Bruce. As you can see my knitting is ready to go. I do have my priorities you know.
The Cardi Shrug is on the needles, I am under the arm so I have about 6 more inches to go on this project.
The yummy apple green is for the second shrug, I hope to get it on the needles while I am away from home. My friends live on half of a mountain. I think two 15 year old boys might have a wonderful time exploring all by themselves. I will get to visit with my dear friends. Bruce is one of my friends battling cancer right now, stage 4 lung cancer with a horrible prognosis. So it is really important I can go and see him for myself.
When I get home I have this mess to deal with. 12 1/4 inches of rain leads to a lot of plant growth and may I add A LOT of weed growth. I feel like the plants have been on a super growth cycle this week. Plants on steroids!
Even the Mexican Petunia's have gone mad.
We are heading out tomorrow at 7am for the 12 hour drive. I am hoping to return Thursday or Friday. If you live in the US, hope your 4th of July is safe and lovely. And no matter what your political background is, with all the election craziness, I know you are all happy to live in such a wonderful country. I know I am.
See you soon.
