We went on a grueling hike with great views (that's Mt. Baker in the background for those of you who are curious... my parents have a view of it from their living room, but it isn't nearly as glorious as this view).
We saw babies:
Our friends' adorable baby (for which the adorable baby sweater was knit). He's 3 months old and makes hubbie and I anxious to have our own soon (except for the constant crying and breast feeding).
Baby seal by the dock. It was apparently held, poked, and beaten with a bowl of chips ("accidentally" claims the 7 year old perpetrator), so I doubt it will live much longer, but at least we got to see it before it passes away.
And, I finally got inspired to start knitting a new project (Green Gables). I searched all over Bellingham for the right yarn, but couldn't find it. Then I realized that I have cotton yarn at home (Mission Falls 1824). I bought it two summers ago for the Honeymoon cami, but once I finished it and tried it on, it looked HORRIBLE. It was just the wrong yarn for the cami and was not at all flattering. I started another sweater instead, but it was in no way feminine. When I realized that this yarn might work, I frogged the second sweater right away. So far, so good. I'm hoping that I'll finish it during my week of vacation. Wish me luck!
