summer '08

I have been trying to get over here. For days.
To tell you about how much fun my mother and I had at the TNNA last weekend. I have wanted to show you the most beautiful way to display yarn. About a new tweed yarn (classic elite portland tweed) that I am dying to get my hands on. I want to tell you about how excited I was when I met Sarah, my first blogger crush. And how Cozy was there signing her fantastic book.
I wanted to tell you about my favorite new recipe for pizza.
And the most refreshing way to drink water.
And about how I want to make strawberry jam.
And about all the dates I have planned with my sewing machine.
But for now. I really just want to tell you about how we are jumping for joy!
School is out, and Summer of 2008 has begun!

Our last day is tomorrow - YAY!!! I saw the jam post this morning too, I'm going with rasberry though. (If produce in our neck of the woods EVER ripens!)

Denise said...

YAY!!!! Unlike Tami we are 8 days ahead of you and school got out last week here :) I've had a lovely week sleeping til whenever I want, but usually I've been trying to get up at 7-7.30am. Still better than the usual 6am school day.

It IS hard to adjust to the new schedule, isn't it? Eh - we'll figure it out soon enough, though, I'm sure. In the meantime, enough it!

Seanna Lea said...

Summer is so good! I blissfully had today off from work, so I got all of the errands that are too annoying to do (or time consuming) on a work day, met the husband for lunch and had a small accident at the yarn shop.

Good times had by all.

Mandi said...

Isn't it wonderful! Thanks for the links. There is nothing like homemade strawberry Jam!
