kim likes the socks i gave her. these are the first pair she’s had for herself. something tells me she might end up on my sock list.
i landed yesterday around lunchtime and snuck up on kim at the airport
you remember her, right? i just love kim, and it’s so good to be here with her family. they have the coolest house and yard, that they have been building over the last number of years. we are eating citrus fruit and juices right off the trees out back
i feel so spoiled, and david is so jealous (he’s home right now, planting our front hill with ground cover to try to stem the erosion we’re seeing there. sounds like WAY more fun than hiking near the ocean all afternoon).
and of course there are pets
this is pal and chica (guess which one is which . . .just guess. i’ll give you a hint: chica was rescued at a taco stand in mexico). there are more (and more odd) pets but i haven’t gotten their photos yet.
not to change the subject too abruptly or anything, but this is a knitting blog and i though you might like to hear a little about that too. last night while we watched pheonix get spanked by san antonio, kim and i worked on our knitting.
i was pretty exhausted and disoriented from the flight, so i cast on for my new scarf in woolen rabbit whisper lace yarn, and settled in with the easy-to-learn pattern.
on the plane i finished up the first spectator sock,
while my seat mate simmered about having to sit next to me with my “weapons” (he was a little disgruntled that i got to have weapons, but he had to leave his liquids behind. sigh)
since he was so nice and friendly, i couldn’t help but tease him by proceeding to knit for the whole 5.5-hour flight. i put a bunch of work onto the star shawl too.
ok, we are heading out to cole’s volleyball game, so i’ll be back later with more. i got some awesome pictures today at the ocean.
