Back to the Grind
Vacation was lovely. The weather was lovely about 90% of our trip and we had a great time and ate lots of good food. No yarn store visits to speak of (sorry!) since I didn't know exactly where we were going are how long we would be gone. We did a lot of laying around and playing in the water. My ideal. And apparently all of the people in these coastal towns live off of ice cream, saltwater taffy, and candy. I swear, every other shop had barrels of candy and was chock full of kids. My idea of a candy store was the Tillamook Cheese Factory where we ate our way through some delicious free cheese (fresh cheese curds anyone?) and indulged in a scoop of ice cream. Delish. Everything is back to normal this week and Fall is definitely here. I've been knitting like crazy and getting ready for some family visits, the baby, and cooler weather. There's nothing like a pile of sweater in your lap to say Fall. It makes my knitterly heart sigh with happiness.
