We've spent almost every weekend doing something fun... going to the market, the beach, a wedding (at a winery), a birthday party, hosting impromptu barbecues, eating outside whenever we think of it, and enjoying the out of doors as much as we can. All too soon we'll be cuddled up under blankets, staring out at snowy scenery.
Last weekend we went to "The Incredible Picnic" at the Dartmouth waterfront. There were booths with local food producers, entertainment, and fun. A local adventure farm had a few animals there for the kids to see. The Mogrunt got very excited about a baby goat.
He wasn't quite sure what sign he should use for it. It wasn't quite a dog or a cat, but he didn't know the sign for goat. The goat, for her part, didn't quite know what sign to use for the Mogrunt, so she wandered away for a drink.
I still have moments when the sight of him chokes me up simultaneously with love for him and sorrow for the fact that my mother is not here to enjoy him. I guess that will never go away.
Since coming back to work I've managed to knit most of a sweater for me, a wee pair of socks for the Mogrunt and I've just started another pair of socks for the Mogrunt. Like I said, soon enough the snow will fly and we'll want those warm socks.
I hope your summer has been sunny both in the literal and figurative sense.
