I started my morning by reaching through our living room window and picking a plum. They are not quite ripe – but I sort of enjoy that. A slight crunchiness and tart, tart skin. Delicious.
So far my long weekend has consisted of a ludicrous amount of websurfing, movie watching and knitting. Oh. And lounging in my PJ’s.
I was going to spend a few days at the beach but there has been a disaster. I cannot even believe it. Residents aren’t allowed near right now. We take our kids to both beaches all of the time – in fact we were just there on Monday. My sister works down at the waterfront and we have been watching the baby Canadian Geese all season. It is very, very depressing. The crazy thing is, the chemical spill they mention from last year – our kids were there at the river that day. I was camping at Twin Harbors State Park at the time, but I write the itinerary so I knew where they were. They were totally shocked to arrive for their picnic to see dead fish all over the shore and floating downstream. Thankfully no one was hurt since the company that caused the spill did not contact residents/officials for over 12 hrs – long enough for a group of children to head to the river for the day.
I try to teach the children to care for our earth, to make responsible decisions, and to consider the impact we all have and here in the last 2 years they are getting the worst kind of education about our fragile environment.
I could go on and on like this – but this is a knitting blog, right?
Speaking of knitting – I listened to my first ever podcast last night. CutieKnittahFairy! Talking about the Sea Socks Cruise, Magic Loop etc. Oh and some pretty cool tunes too. It was a lot of fun. I hope she keeps it up.
