More Camping, and a Smidge of KnittingToday is the 2nd Anniversary of Abby-Come-Home-Day... 2 years ago today, a fuzzy little doggy left the animal shelter for the last time. So in celebration, we took her to the funnest place ever... CAMPING!!!
On the first day, we took a nice 4 mile hike (with a stop in the middle for lunch)...
... and she only needed a few carries. Poor doggy - it was nice and cool (high temps in the 70s with no humidity), but she hasn't been getting a lot of exercise lately because it's been so hot.
I think she was happy, though...
Plus, her frequent rests gave me a chance to play with the camera's macro function. I really need to learn how to use all of my camera's fancy features!
Later that night, I practiced my "reading while knitting" skills - I'm almost done with the Tilted Duster from the latest Interweave, and I can't stop knitting it! I'm not sure when I think it'll be cool enough to wear it (given that I have a whole stack of finished objects waiting for a photo-shoot!) But right now, it's way too hot to wear anything knitted, even in the air conditioning. Is it fall yet?
The next day we took it easy and only hiked 2 miles. Abby showed us that even though she only has 3 legs, she can too climb the huge rocks...
and S found this little guy - super cute! But he was a little unsure about the dog, so we left him alone.
Before we got in the car to head home, we had to take a little nap (even though she wasn't tired AT ALL)...
I'm loving my extended vacation - I feel like I should be doing something productive today, but i just don't seem to care. I'm making a bunch of calls trying to finalize everything for the wedding, and there are a few other loose ends that need tidying.
But then there's the knitting and the netflix... Maybe I'll just take a little break and knit a few rows. :)
