Beach and crochet
The first few weeks of Spring here have been cold, blustery and windy.
So we were delighted when last weekend dawned clear and warm.
Daughter#2 and I decided to celebrate with a trip to a local island for the day.
It is quite possible that we made a million sandcastles.
And decorated them with a million shells.
The sun reflecting off the water was beautiful
We packed a picnic, and had blueberries and yoghurt for lunch in the shade of a tree.
I then suggested that I read some of the paper whilst the small one continued with making more of the aforementioned infinity of sandcastles that needed to be made that day. Daughter#2 responded by deciding that was not an option, and filling her bucket with ice cold water from the sea and pouring it over my legs. Over and over again! She thought it was hilarious hearing me shriek! Over and over again!
It was a beautiful and relaxing day, and a great start to Spring.
On the yarning an dreading front, as always linking in with Ginny at Small Things for her http://www.gsheller.com/2011/09/yarn-along_21.html. I am reading Angel's Tip, by Alafair Burke. It's a police procedural, pretty formulaic, but a good read nevertheless. On the crochet front, I am working on a few blankets at the moment, as well as the ongoing Christmas bag project. I thought the best in progress work to show today was my Spring Sea and sand blanket. I chose the colours because they reminded me of the sun, sand and water.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!!
