How about a quick update?
- This photo was taken on Wednesday. Flair, Nancy and I went to the beach. I did a bit of knitting, got pummeled by some waves (actually knocked down and rolled around in the surf – how’s that for a visual?) and then they cleared the beach because of incoming electrical storms. But it was a fun day and I made my usual vow to come to the beach more often!
- I believe I have failed to mention that D#1 is going to bartending school this summer. A few weeks ago she said she had a great gift idea for her 21st birthday, that she hoped I would hear her out, that it is the kind of job where she could have another job. She had her defenses all lined up, clearly expecting some kind of argument from me. I said, “Make me a gin and tonic”. She didn’t know how and had to be shown. what?! I thought college was supposed to be a bartending head start program! what’s the matter with kids these days?
It starts next week and runs for two weeks. One thing I find tremendously funny – she keeps referring to it as the academy. I realize that they call themselves the academy, but really do we all need to follow along? I stay quiet and just give myself knowing looks in any available mirror.
- We are throwing a graduation party/bbq for D#2 tomorrow afternoon. The weather reports are looking ominous. fingers crossed! Today will be spent getting ready – chopping celery and onions for various mayonnaise laden salads!
- I have decided to not fight my lack of knitting mojo. I am waiting it out and knitting dishcloths. I get an inordinate amount of pleasure from the colors of kitchen cotton. For instance, this one makes me want a lemon water ice!
