Golfing, reading, knitting

Sorry for the couple days of radio silence. Just been trying to make the most of every last little bit of summer.

Friday was mini-putt with the girls (a last blast before they headed back home).
This little one plays mini-putt like she's playing hockey...
Saturday, I had plans with a friend from the big city, but she had to cancel last minute, so I was suddenly faced with a Saturday empty of any obligations... what to do with all that time???

Well, I slept in. Then I stayed in bed for the rest of the morning and read with the boys.
And with a lazy afternoon stretching out before me, I decided to finish up Sherlock. I'd been steadily adding inches to that last sleeve, and I only had five or six more to go. I figured a couple of hours and it would be done....

Famous last words.

But.... by bed-time...
Good ol' Sherl was on the blocking board!

Temps are on the rise again (after a very cool week) so it will be a bit before I can wear it on a regular basis, but I'm sure Mom and I will sneak in a photo shoot before then.

I hope it's several more weeks of summer before we get to sweater weather, but Sherlock looks great!

I just love that sweater. If it weren't for hot flashes I'd be casting one on right now!

I love the look of your Sherlock, gorgeous!

Sherlock looks great. You know that the sweater weather will be here before you know it.

Your niece looks like she would have a pretty good slap shot.

Great sweater! So what were you reading? Something that caught the cats' attention, it seems.

Love it! Can't wait to see it in action.

The extra down time gave you some good knitting time! Wow...she's finished. I'm anxious to see the next photos too.

Your Sherlock is just amazing. Wonderful. And reading in bed all day? I gotta try that!
