 We went to a florist last week and I was really impressed, but I have flowers to pick from my garden.
 Finished my Malabrigo yarn with a lovely Milo vest. It is about an 18 month size which should suit an August gift for a first birthday. The mom is a knitter so working with this fabulous yarn is not a concern.
 Monday (and the one before that) found me so knocked down. First it was a cold and then a stomach bug that wanted revenge. I'm not used to that. Slept part of each hour last Monday. Hope tomorrow is better because my Monday and Tuesday are packed with appointments.
 Tonight I will work on my Shetland Pi shawl. It has been too hot to handle sticky yarn. I doubled the stitches to 576 and added the second colour, Blue Lovat.
 What's in your notions pouch? I love these threads. This is one of my bags I carry in a larger project bag. 
 Started the sleeves on my featherweight. I am afraid of ruining this sweater. Switched to double points because the cable on the magic loop was upsetting the fragile Merino Silk. I'm happy knitting the first 9 inches straight, but then I have to pay attention and make notes as I decrease so I can have two sleeves the same. I may just knit them at the same time. I have enough dpns, but the thought of all those needles clacking bothers me.
I told myself, the next time I see the giant pom pom maker, I'm buying it. Fun will ensue.
Read the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report. I challenge all Canadians to be part of the circle. Our church is finally doing some conversations with the Sto:lo Nation across the street, but it is on Pipe Band evenings. Want to catch up.

Found this willow tree growing next to our Luckakuck River. Nothing is going to stop it!

The grass is already so tall! This will be second cut. It loved the hot weather and the rain, too.

Had a lovely lunch with friends up in Cultus Lake. What a blessing to be surrounded by good friends, good food and such a rich, green space.
