I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Welcome to summer

"And today was a day just like any other." ~ Andrew McMahon

Nap, play, eat. CB and I kept it lazy today. (OK, so she had some not-so-fun moments with the teething. But we're doing our best to take it in stride.) After a wonderful wedding and weekend vacation, it felt good to stay home. I'm ready to welcome the dog days of summer.

My photo-of-the-day picks for the prompts ...

CB's "a duh" was snapped right before we hit the road for a lil' vacation. Just in case I didn't have time, I already had a couple other yellow backups ...

Then it was off to Minnesota! On Saturday, we checked out Sea Life Aquarium at the Mall of America.

He swam above us as we walked through a tunnel.

I thought I'd have lots to show for the next day's photo prompt. But it turns out that I didn't do much actual shopping at the MOA.

Now we're back home and our normal day was capped by a bath. I took the opportunity to play with our underwater camera.

June 18 ~ something we don't know about you ~ I didn't learn how to swim until my freshman year in grade school. To this day, I still use a swim mask because I haven't mastered "breathing" underwater.

In case those goggles aren't too clear in my chosen photo, here was my alternate from earlier in the day.

I'm gonna have to inflate our baby pool this week. Hopefully CB loves the water so she learns to swim at least a little earlier than I did. Happy summer days to all!
