Week 34 - Rainy Weather

Mom and I went to the yarn shop today, our usual Tuesday morning jaunt.  I meet with a student there and Mom gets to talk to people other than me!  And she's being exposed to yarn and knitting like she's never been exposed before.  Mom started a sweater for the first time in over 70 years this past weekend.  She's so excited to finish it...I will post a picture once it's done.  Back to my original thought:  When we got to the shop, we were early.  Lisa hadn't arrived yet so we sat in the car (actually, I napped) and waited.  I glanced around and saw this:
It's a beautiful spider web.  We'd had some incredible fog this morning and the sun hadn't quite burned it all off yet.  This was just magical.  

Our rain totals for July was an incredible 13 inches...since July is usually a dry month, this is quite amazing to us.  The Farmer's Almanac is telling us that this winter is going to be quite wet and snowy.  But that's what they said we would have last year.  We had a total of 2 snow days last winter.  One of the dryest on record.  So we will see what this winter brings us.

Thanks for stopping by.
