Sunday in Vermont.

I am really enjoying the 70's with no humidity in Vermont. Much better than feels like 100+. We are spending lots of time outside and in the fresh air. We do love the screened in porch overlooking the lake. My parents have owned this property since 1964 and I always spent my summers here growing up. We got done school and moved out here (45 minutes from our home) and then moved back right before school started in the fall. Lots of great memories have been made here and I'm so glad my kids can enjoy it as well.

I think I started this blue knitted dish cloth at an Encampment with girl scouts in October. Emily has added some stitches to it in various places. It was stuck in my backpack for a long time and then was in the back of the car. It finally got finished Friday. I also added a granny square that I was crocheting on the new swing with canopy out by the driveway looking down at the water. Very peaceful.

Aidan has a F1 race this morning and maybe I'll get some stitches in on the binding of this quilt. It seems people take it to cover their legs and snuggle up in whenever I want to work on it! Linking up with Kathy and the other slow stitchers.

I have our meals planned for the day and the kids and I might try to scale the mountain this afternoon.  I think Mom likes the break and having meals just planned and made and presented! Steak on the grill with baked potato and green beans. It was to get cooler tonight, so I planned potato leek soup. Tomorrow is lots of siblings and family coming over for dogs and burgers on the grill with lots of salads. Maybe 17? It will be good to see all my siblings and some of the nieces and nephews.

it sounds like the perfect place for a family get together. And so nice to have this summer cabin for so many year - so many memories I am sure, I wish I had something like that!

It's so great that you can still get up there for a vacation every year - sounds like a wonderful place! I bet your parents are enjoying having you, too. I'm so impressed with your granny squares. I haven't progressed past a chain stitch this week!

What a great place to get together every year, and a nice place for you to cool off for awhile! Have a great week!


Glad you are enjoying Vermont and the outdoors--I remember a couple cottage vacations when I was younger-in bits and pieces!!
I see the F1 got off to a really scary start--hope the rest of the race is better for Adian--
My race is in Wisconsin and is a road course race--not my favorite kind of race--but it is racing soooo---
take care enjoy--hugs, di
