Milo's haircut

Yeah - things are really hopping around here. The most exciting then lately has been Milo's summer buzz cut.

Memories of Edgewood

We had a wonderful time at this idyllic resort on the NW shore of Long Lake in Park Rapids, Minn. The town itself was quaint and fairly unchanged through the decades. Case in point - the soda fountain in town!

My favorite shop was the LYS - Monika's. If you're ever in the area make sure to go - fabulous yarns and notions of all kinds.

Summers with Sarah

She's started slowing down a bit - which for me is a good thing in some ways because she's always outlasted me on our outings and shopping trips. Nevertheless, she's great company and I look forward to her visits. Someday these trips will be a memory.

A Hot Thursday

It's just past eight am and the sky already has that white haze to it - indicating another sweltering Canada summer  day! At least we know there's some respite at the end of this heatwave, not a daily thing like it is for FLoridians!
Mom and I have been having some fun - spending time together is always nice. We do a little outing at some point in the day, then it's back to the air conditioning!

Mom has been here a week already and we're having a great time. At least I am! Sad news last week about fred Pannier. We lost him too early. He was a good friend.
I just finished a top from the July 2008 issue of knitsimple. I'll start putting my stuff out in the cyberworld asap.
