And while outside, there are lots of critters to watch too. But if you bring your camera outside to "shoot" some, they are all in hiding. Except the Hummingbirds, they know they are to quick for me to photograph.

They where done even before I could make the sandwiches, fully expecting them to wrestle with the tire for a longer time. Remembering the times we had to change tires and not to mention fixing a leak. It would take hours, soapy water, two of those tire things to lift the tire, get the inner tube out. Putting the tire back on, calling in help because we could not hold it by ourselves.
Ahhh, the memories. Pedaling to school rain or shine, always prepared for a big rainstorm with our rain gear strapped on the seat, underneath my schoolbag. Two plastic bags at hand for my feet so you would not end up sitting in the classroom with wet feet all day.
Meanwhile after the hoodie, of course I had to cast on something else, baby stuff is so much fun to knit. Here is another one, very quick and so teeny for a 0-3 month old. All I can say it is very CUTE!!

Of course a shiny new helmet had to accompany the bike, but you have to wear your beany at all cost even at summertime. What reminds me I have to knit him a bigger one, he grows to fast.
DH is on a fancy dinner tonight, of all things he had to go here.

My knee highs are also on hold, not that they were finished, long legs are a pain to knit for, plus I want the color to change, still waiting for the yellow and white and aqua, this is such an entertaining knit, can-not-put-it-down!! Hate that I can't knit (soooooooooooooo bored, can not do much and typing one handed is taking a long time too)
Yesterday afternoon DS and I decided to color some yarn again with Kool Aid. We soaked the yarn for about 15 minutes, squeezed the water out and dunked it in this, 4 packets of orange and a half cherry.

He is getting very good at writing adds, and really "gets" the whole advertising thing. He thinks about it, and makes comments that make you stop in your tracks and go "wow".

Boy these go fast, it is just a simple all knit pattern, no fancy stitches, no pattern reading, just simple stripes and very entertaining watching the colors change.

Making nice progress on the Necco Wafer Hoodie for my "yet to be born niece".
I also am determent to finish the Monkey socks tomorrow, one more pattern repeat and the toes to go and then DS has a new pair of socks. Yes, he has claimed these, they are blue! and anything blue is his he said. What is a mom to do??? I can't say no and not provide him with socks.

And the benefit of the market was the nice fresh pastry we enjoyed with our cup of coffee.
Of course some shopping for fresh veggies was done. Tomorrow we have fresh asparagus on the menu, while for today we ate the fresh focaccia bread with zucchini, bell pepper, tomato and mozzarella cheese. YUM (sorry no glass of wine, but instead milk)
Locally grown everything, from apricots to flowers, how tempted I was to buy bunches and bunches of flowers!!

She comes over and after petting her for a bit she settles in and just sits there watching me. When I go inside, she goes on home.
