Monday, September 06, 2004 Adieu Summer 2004
Yup - it's officially over after today. And for all I'm looking forward to the fun of autumn, I am also a tad wistful at the flight of the imaginary leisurely summer days I would like to think I had. I didn't of course, though I had some wonderful days. But leisure didn't figure in to much of my summer. And it hasn't got even a supporting role for this fall. As I look into the future I don't have a weekend free till the week before Thanksgiving. What have I done to myself!?!
Yesterday the sky kept filling up with puffs of storm clouds - not the ordinary rain clouds, but hurricane clouds - 1000 miles away from the storm we were seeing the effects. I took a walk out to the road around noon and watched as the last of the blue sky disappeared. Later, BD and I drove up to F'burg for Texas chili and got caught in some fitful showers on the way home. We drove down Rt. 2 to Bowling Green - a slower route, but a pretty one, and then meandered home through the backroads. I was actually chilly and made him roll up the car windows. Ahh - how equinautical.
I've been struggling with the sleeve on the purple mohair lace sweater - the pattern is so much easier to knit in the round, but lawsee! I can't keep count of the stitches when increasing in the round. I finally ripped out the whole darn thing and started anew, knitting it flat. I am determined to finish this sleeve before tomorrow. I am also thinking of switching to wooden needles - but that's just a thought - not a decision.
LD&GF were over last night - and we heard all about the trip to Michigan. She was homesick and wanted a final dip in the river - and come to think of it - I do too. Just so's I can say I swim from May through September - something of a lie but not quite. They'll be with us for dinner tonight - roast chicken and new potatoes. It's been a long time since I let the oven get so hot for so long. Yup, yup - summer is over. posted by Bess | 7:41 AM
