That top picture there shows a stone bench where we sat long enough to let the cold rock chill the sweat that dripped down our spines as we climbed up the ravine to that point. This was how I spent my birthday, scrambling up the sides of mountains chasing views of waterfalls and wondering how I became so out of shape and prone to aching. "More of this and more often," we kept promising to each other.
I bought a sweater's worth of Knit Pick Galileo in "gem" almost a year ago now with the idea of casting on a short row sweater only I never actually got around to it.

It is 61F here today and we have anxiously watched about this hurricane. I think it now will miss us even though just 24 hours ago it was supposed to go right over us! I was on the schedule for the chimney sweep today but he has just called to say that he was incorrectly booked and is currently over two hours away across the state. I'd have told him what I thought a little more plainly but they are hard to come by in this neck of the woods - seems it is a dying art - so I was as polite as I could sand to be, knowing that we will have no glowing fires now for 20 more days at least.
