Summer Weekends

I had company this weekend and the weather was perfect summer temps.  There was time spent at the beach working on tans.  The weather was in the 80s with amazing blue skies.  The water was its usual bone chilling cold and although I tried, I could only stand to mid-calf for a minute at most.  I just don't understand how people can swim in that stuff!  And little kids at that.  I miss my warm gulf coast water.
 We also went into Portland and toured the Old Port which was surprisingly uncrowded for the weekend before a big summer holiday.  I wonder if its because the holiday falls in the middle of the week but whatever the reason, it was nice.

Sunday morning meant a lazy breakfast with some yummy pecan buns in miniature from the Southern Living Almost Homemade cookbook.  And of course the NY Times Sunday crossword puzzle.  I can definitely recommend the pecan buns.  I sent the remainder home with company as they were way too tempting.

I made some additional progress on my baby project but I'm kind of stuck at the moment with the directions.  There may be some reverse knitting in my future.  Hope you had a great weekend as well!

We can stand it because we've been training since we were little! I used to come out of the water when my feet turned blue! :)
