Summer Crush

Right now we are:


*Enjoying the cooler weather while it lasts. By cooler, I mean anything slightly below triple digits. What a blisteringly hot summer this has been!

*Surviving on hot dogs, chips and ice cream. With my (health nut) hubby away on a cross country motorcycle trip, the little guy and I are indulging in all of our favorite junk food meals. Cheesesteaks, cheeseburgers, chili dogs, french fries.... :)


*Taking evening trips to the beach. Love the quietness of this time of day.


*Loving the easy rhythm of knitting on my current summer crush. The pattern is a little gem that lets the vibrant tropical colors of Zauberball shine. Totally crushing on chevron stripes this summer!

*Looking forward to reconnecting with all of my favorite blogs and participating in WIP Wednesday once again. After a few years of not having cable, we made the decision to restart it. My concern about having to set t.v. limits for the little guy has been pushed aside. So far, he remains more interested in outdoor activities. I, on the other hand, have been totally binging on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, House Hunters, Bizarre Foods, Entertainment Tonight, etc etc. I draw the line at Jersey Shore, though.

  2. You just gave me a good reason to rip out the Zauberball socks I made and hate because they are too too big!

  4. I'm so jealous - my summer is being all grey and rainy :(

    I love the knitting - that's such a fab colourway and it looks great with the chevrons

  5. WOW that scarf is gorgeous! I've been itching to try Zauberball, and that's totally not helping. :)

    It's been hot where I live, too (we average triple digits, but for the most part it's dry so it's not as bad as it sounds). Hope you're managing to stay cool!

  6. Wow that scarf just screams about the heat of summer, doesn't it. I love the vibrant colours!
    I'm glad you have been enjoying some one to one time with your little man. I think the best part of summer is the little indulgences (she says while eating her second serving of berry crumble and ice cream ; )

  7. Love your photos, they're all so summer-perfect! And that scarf---what a great pattern, and I'm going to have to get a Zauberball someday. Their colours are amaaazing. (And hi, I'm looking forward to reconnecting, too. I've missed your blog while I've been MIA, you make such beautiful things and write so thoughtfully.)
