This is the view from my mother’s new bungalow by a small lake in FL. Isn’t this a peaceful way to wake up in the morning?
And looking in another direction. She has four large windows so can choose her view.
She even has a screened deck so she can sit outside without dealing with any bugs. I am so happy for her!!
We have been celebrating her 92nd birthday for the last three days. Today we stopped at a place called Fat Jacks and sampled their Rubens. These were her idea and they were great. Then we traveled a couple of miles to another place (forgot the name) for pie with ice cream. Not a bad way to celebrate, right?
And of course I am knitting while here. I am working on the foot part of my worsted socks (rib on top and SS on the foot bed). I still am not sure I will ever again do a provisional cast on I can see that it leaves the toe stronger than other cast on’s. I also have completed two dishcloths but did not take a picture yet.
I will be leaving tomorrow morning. Mother wants to have breakfast out but with a 9 hour drive I probably will just leave from here. There are a couple of places I would like to stop on the way and it looks like I could, again, hit some heavy rain (100 miles of solid blinding rain on the way down) so I need as much time as possible in order to get home before it gets dark. I am always afraid that once it gets dark I will get sleepy, especially after a long drive.
I hope everyone has had a productive week and I’ll be seeing you again Sunday night. Gari
