Gardening, grilling, and knitting…

Posted by on June 11, 2012 at 10:32 pm.

Today has flown by so quickly, this morning I was up early picking sweet peas in our garden…

Naturally, I nibbled on a few while I picked them. And why not, our garden produce  is organic, so I don’t have to worry about fresh chemicals sprayed on the plants. Which means I don’t have to wait X amount of days before I start eating them, and since the almost one acre of garden is completely enclosed with fenced. I don’t have to worry about deer wandering in for a snack, or a neighbor dog marking our plants Ughh…

Today marked my daughter’s first day of summer vacation, well if you don’t count the weekend, and so in honor of this occasion I grilled outside. Hotdogs and hamburgers for her; tons of fresh veggies for me. I didn’t feel like making anything more elaborate for myself.

When my daughter and I weren’t acting silly, you could find me knitting a hat. I love hats, the sillier the better. This knitted hat was made with ridges. at the bottom. Of course it’s  colorful! I’ll be sure to post a picture later this week. It’s too big for my daughter, but it fits me! It wasn’t intentional, honest! Tomorrow, I’ll cast one on for her; she’s excited that we’ll have matching knitted hats. 

Of course, I didn’t take pictures at all today. But, my daughter did use her video camera a lot, and she even performed a play with her Monster High dolls. I was one of the voice actors.

    I’ll be sure to post pictures @DragonLady, I’m still undecided with how I want the finished item to look. Which is great, I like thinking as I go… Reminds me of my sewing/designing days, some of my best work came when I made it up as I went along. 😉

    Glad you got some well deserved rest and got to spend some quality time with your daughter! Hooray that school is done! Yum, eating things right from the garden – there is nothing better than that. I am looking forward to seeing your mother and daughter matching hats. They sound like fun. I hope the two of you will pose in them together. 🙂 I would love to see that.

    Well @teeni, these hats won’t be matching. She came up with a few ideas, and I went with it… on this hat. But I will be making one to be similar to this one… or perhaps another one I create for myself.

    You know I love unique hats, too! Can’t wait to see ’em! Can’t wait to hear more about your garden and see what wonderful things you come up with in the veggie dish dept, too!

    Of course I thought of you @Jennifer, I know you love unique hats. I’d like to do my spin on a Cat in the Hat hat… have sketched a few ideas but I’m not sure if I want to crochet or knit it… 😉
