Lake Blue Ridge

OK - I'm back on track! Nathan and his girlfriend Tiana came to visit us over the weekend. We took them kayaking/canoeing on Lake Blue Ridge. It was a beautiful day so it was perfect for getting out and paddling around a little bit. We waited until Sunday afternoon as it had rained all Sunday morning so it was nice and quiet since all the weekenders were already on the road.

What else? I did A LOT of canning over the weekend. I'm pretty sick of squash and I know we have a lot more coming! I canned zuchinni, scallop squash, yellow squash and lots of green beans. That took half the day. I have a new pressure canner though and I love it! I can put a bunch of stuff into it at one time so that is really nice.

I'll be starting on all of the sock summit pre-orders today so that I can hopefully get those out next week for everyone who has already placed an order.

Seriously, I need to get back to work on the February Lady sweater!

I finally finished the endless garter stitch on my February Lady and am starting the gull stitch pattern finally. You mean Mr. Man didn't canoe in a g-string? BTW, your ass looks really tiny in the canoe.

I spent July 4th weekend up at a cabin in Blue Ridge and loved the lake so much - I could so live there!!
