Memorial Day weekend marks my four-year blogiversary. I can't believe it!
In the time since the blog began, I have moved house, lost a job, started a business, lost our kitty Charlie to cancer, adopted Rainy & Rosie, began volunteering at the local cat shelter, and knit so many projects. But best of all, I have made many new friends, and you'll never know how important you are to me! I am looking forward to our next four years together.
One of my blog traditions is to make a summer wish list. I'll never accomplish everything on the list, but it's fun to try to do as many as possible.
1)I want to make the Vogue Knitting A-Line skirt, and hopefully finish it in time to wear it before Labor Day. I'm not sure if I'll participate in the Tour de France KAL with this project, though.
2)Two years ago, I did the twelve-week Artist's Way program. This summer, I'd like to do the sequel, Walking in this World.
3)More Sundays at the beach with books. A Rather Charming Invitation is at the top of the booklist, since it is such a summer adventure.
4)Long bicycle rides with Chris and friends, including a return visit to Block Island.
5)A visit to Cape Ann, to see the Seaside Knitting mysteries location in person. There is a 25-mile bike ride around the cape!
6)Grilling and eating outdoors, and at least one trip with the picnic basket. I bought it when I was first married, but we never seem to use it. Do you use yours if you have one? For what occasions? What food do you like to include? It seems like most everything needs to be refrigerated in a cooler instead.
7)Continue working on the garden.
8)Work on some sort of writing project.
9)Update my wardrobe. It looks so tired. There are ten things I wish I had knitted months ago, so I could wear them right now.
What's on your list? What do you dream of doing in July and August, when the sun is hot and the days are lazy and (seem) endless?
A Happy and Safe Memorial Day weekend to those in the U.S.!
