~Thursday brought a deluge of rain, but Friday afternoon the sky took on a more painterly aspect.
~Distractions abound in this season of beautiful weather.
~My extra time is spent in the garden, or reading on the patio.
~I'm charmed by the sound of birds and their lilting songs.
~The breeze tickles the wind chimes into playing a tune as accompaniment.
~The books I escape into enthrall me.
~Not to worry, knit happens, too. My trusty iPod speaks into my ear.
~One shawl is finished, another is inching closer, and yet another has been cast on.
~It is the season of shawls (right, Carole?), the perfect cover for cool evenings, or protection from too cold a/c.
Did you have a good weekend?
I'm Weekending with Amanda because I thought I should at least stop in and say hello!
I love this time of year! The bird songs. The garden. Shawls. Pretty much perfection.

It's my favorite time of year and I am loving every minute of it!

Oh, I love how layered the clouds and landscape look in that photo! Sounds like your making the best and the most of this wonderful time of year.

Gorgeous photo! Hope I'm heading toward some weather like that, but it sounds like I should pack some down vests and wool socks! Or go shopping....

This is such a gorgeous time of year! :)

It's good to hear from you! It is gorgeous here today. 70 and a nice cool breeze. The hail storm of 3 weeks ago is a memory (all except for the new roof and stuff part;-P). Perfect time to be outside. Now. How do we deal with this working thing?

I always wonder what color you choose for the scarf with a sky like that.

I did. And I'm on a book-reading roll right now too!

A good weekend indeed! I worked in the yard and followed the sun, or should I say I followed the shade!

Here's to more weekends like that! xo

I've been reading too, but I often curl up on the couch with a book and get lost for hours. 23 books since my birthday could explain my lack of knitting and blogging. Maybe

I'm fond of this time of year, too. If only we could do it without the pollen and the blackflies...
