Saturday Sky for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is called "the unofficial start of summer." And by the traffic today, people are gearing up for a good one. The weather forecast is pretty decent for this year, there have been some gloomy cold ones, and unbearably humid ones as well. Today, it was partly sunny and a little cool, with temps around 70. This is the sky from this afternoon.

It looks like my trip to Tucson is going to happen on Monday after all, and I am really looking forward to seeing the landscape out there again. I spoke with Tamar this afternoon, she's home and ready to go back already. It's her escape from reality, and I am more than happy to escape with her. And perhaps at Canyon Ranch, I can talk to someone about my feelings towards my old life vs. this new one. Get a different perspective, maybe. Ah, but I have lots to do before Monday! It is funny...since I started knitting, when I am planning a trip the first thing I think of right away is not what clothes I will take, but what knitting projects will come along. I am still working on the tank top, it's not even in the home stretch, but I still am going to persevere. My neighbors are having a party tomorrow, and I accepted the invite even before I knew I was going away. I really have a lot to do, besides knit, (like pack!) I think they'd think I was nuts if I said I can't come over, I have to finish knitting this tank top...and then pack ;-) But, they are busily readying their place right now for the party (our back yards face each other) and I can see them being worker-bees through the fence. So, I will do the neighborly thing and go over for a little while and be sociable. Then scoot home and get ready for Arizona. This might be the last post until after I get back. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, and have a great next week. XOXO

I looked at the Canyon Ranch website. It looks like you have an exciting week ahead of you. I hope you find it relaxing and energizing at the same time.

I hope you have a wonderful trip, dear - and don't spend too much time pondering so that you cannot enjoy, but do whatever it takes to come back refreshed!

Oh, it sounds wonderful! Enjoy enjoy enjoy.

I always plan what knitting I'm taking before anything else, too. I'm already figuring out what knitting I'm taking to CA this summer. Who care what I'll wear!
