Saturday Sunrise & Vacation Fond Farewell

***
Welp, I'm back. Reluctantly.

Had a lovely, relaxing week at the beach, and have lots of pictures to share, which I think will require multiple-day postings, so as not to overwhelm the reader (or Blogger) with too much visual information all at once.

Tonight I'll leave you with just a few Saturday Sky pictures taken this morning at sunrise. That's right. I was up early enough on a Saturday morning, (for the love of all that is holy!), to see the sunrise. Pull your chin up off the floor and congratulate me, will ya?

That's right - I finished not one, but two, (slow knitter here - be gentle), Mason-Dixon dishcloths while down there this week. Such a fun knit! I wasn't happy with the unfinished look of the sides, though, so decided to crochet the edges with the contrasting yarn. Which required learning how to crochet and acquiring the correct-sized crochet hook. Which required a visit to a yarn shop. (Aw, shucks - twist my arm!) But that's a story for another day.

The dishcloths, by the way, have already found a new home - I gave them to my sister at lunch today. She seemed to like them, which is all I can ask for.

But back to the sky pictures. Here's that same view from the deck when the sun is much, much higher in the sky:

Darn you, little yellow house - blocking our ocean view!

Anyway, I'd like to say it's good to be back home, but really, I could have stayed another week. All good things must come to an end, unfortunately. But thank God for photography! So, stay tuned for Vacation 2006 - Part 1, tomorrow!

Me too me too! I'm glad you're back.

I AM coming to Midlothian on Tuesday - I can't make it down to Cary Town but I will drop by Barnes&Nobel. 7 o'clock? Right?

Very tied up with family on this visit, but I am definitely going to carve out an hour or so to knit with any TNK's who might be there.

I love that dishcloth pattern, but I don't think I could bring myself to wash anything with something I'd knit. I think I'm going to have to jump on the bandwagon and knit one anyway.
