Yesterday morning, Dave woke me up with a smile and said... "Come to the cottage with me... you can sit on the back porch all day and knit."
How can I resist a proposition like that? It seemed his uncle needed some help digging holes and trenches for something or other (I didn't ask - didn't want to ask - when it comes to those two.)
For the trip (about an hour and a half one way) I packed a new project:
The Monarch Shawl in Stray Cat - colour is Emperor. It looks very blue here - but it's really a bluey-purple.
The drive there took a little longer than normal, because Dave had to stop at every garage sale on the way.... and there were a lot......you can see what he was interested in...
But eventually, we got to Long Point, and were greeted by Charlie - the Labradoodle.
A handsome canine specimen, but also a total pansy. It took him a little while to warm up to me, but after that he didn't leave my side. (It might have been because I was sharing french fries.... I know the secrets to a man's heart...)
While I knit the day away, Dave and the boys dug.
And took breaks from digging.
And we were all serenaded by a little dove (seriously - this particular dove hung out all afternoon)And after dark...
A good ole bonfire!
