Happy June!

 Welcome to June everyone! Doesn't feel like it, does it? At least not in my little part of the world. The weather around here has been WEIRD for so long. Cold during the week, warm/hot on the weekends. Although we are supposed to hit triple digits next week. Not looking forward to that.

We had a WONDERFUL long weekend these last couple days. Ben and I left Friday night for the beach and spent our time there filled with fish & chips, sun, water, relaxing, sleeping, and Food Network (the only thing I miss about cable). It was so nice and so needed. We got back into town Sunday, then had to attend a wedding, which was sweet but way too hot and right in direct sunlight. Ugh. I'm so glad we don't keep a lot of friends, and the ones we do have are now all married. No more weddings for awhile please.

And yesterday we had a nice relaxing day where Ben fiddled around the house, then we BBQ'd for just us. It was so nice. The weather was beautiful and it was so good to be home. It was nice to be by ourselves, but we both missed our babies.

I didn't get much knitting done over the last few days, which was totally OK. I showed Ben the finished sweater and he agreed with me that it was a little too short. So I ripped back the cast off edge and have added a few more inches of ribbing. I did most of it in the car on the way home. 2x2 rib makes for excellent car knitting since I don't have to look at it. I will cast off today and then it should be completely done.

Mimi gave me a ton of peaches that she wants me to make into jam. Hopefully I will get that done sometime this week. If I don't get that far then they will become cobbler. Although I think the point was to give her back some jam. I still have the baking itch also, just not today. Too many things to do.

Now, back to the grind. What did you all do for your Memorial day weekend?

I am so glad you had a nice weekend. Hey have fun making jam. Do it before it really gets hot, today is beautiful. We just had tons of company and I feel like today is catchup day. I am taking blankets off beds and changing my comforters to lighter ones. I can't wait to hear all about your trip...gee, tomorrow. :)

I've been sorting winter clothes from summer ones, but I have to do it in stages, when babies are otherwise occupied. :-)

We had fun on Saturday. Wait until you hear all about it. ;-)
