sunday in spring

yesterday I was trapped inside all day at a coding (work) conference. It was gorgeous outside. The view from the top of the Edmond's library didn't help. It's a sweeping view of the Puget Sound, the Kitsap Peninsula and further out the Olympic Mountain Range.

By the time it was over it was 76 degrees and pushing 5:00 p.m.

I hit the store on the way home picked up a couple T-Bones, some iceberg, blue cheese, bacon and some more tonic water...
By 6:00 that meat was on the grill, The iceberg wedge salad was ready and I had a full V&T out in the sun.

It was perfect.

D had done some work in the bedroom yesterday while I was gone and I took advantage of the furniture being shifted to vacuum where the sun don't shine in there... That's where the allergies really kicked up...

So I took two Benadryl and settled in to watch a movie...

when I woke up this morning (man that Benadryl knocks you out fast)

still a bit stuffy
sun shining brightly
I took a bunch of my knits outside to air
I washed a bunch of my hats that I wear all winter
I am blocking a cowl and beret on the dining room table as I type and then I found my Cream and Sugar cowl knit in Plucky Emerald City and then I glanced toward part of the stash that is stored on my coffee table and saw the Blue Moon Oopsie Daisies that Marcy picked up for me at Madrona...

well I think it's pretty clear what's about to happen.
I better pop a second pot of coffee on and drag out my winder! It's a perfect day to sit outside and knit while my head clears of the Benadryl fog and de-stuff's from the dust :)
