called Taiga by tweedysheep. gotta get the spinning done so i can work on the sweater while on the Alaska cruise in a few weeks. Kate and i were going to take spinning wheels with us, then the travel arrangements for getting to Vancouver, BC got a little more complicated than just driving up there. Jim and i will take amtrak to seattle the day before, stay overnight with the kids, then take amtrak from Everett to Vanc. and bus or taxi to everwhere the ship sails. so will take knitting and my audio books and camera. we'll be taking the inside passage, which should give us lots of beautiful sights of glaciers, whales and who knows what! stopping in 3 ports and have a couple of excursions planned and museums and shopping. i think it will be a fabulous week!
it's hot! dog days of august! tomatoes might ripen!! bountiful baskets full of zucchini and cucumbers and yellow squash! roses are blooming their little hearts out and sunflowers getting big, with promises of flowers soon! i'm not complaining.
