I'm on week 2 of a 2 week holiday and am in a wonderfully lazy mood. Last week it was me and the kids and no car (Craig's started a new job which involves a bit of a commute and no holiday time for a while) and we had a whole bunch of fun on a staycation: beach, inline skating, Ontario Place (waterslides!), hanging around loafing (not to be underrated), local pool swimming--all good.
Then we went to Tweed to visit the kids' Grandfather and we got to do some more swimming, fireworks, hanging out by the fire and just relaxing.
This morning I did the laundry, repacked our cottage bags and we headed up to Oro-Medonte to my SIL's parents cottage to do more lazing.
It's a fabulous place right on Lake Simcoe which we snagged in exchange for watching Ms Ruby Puppy for 10 days while their whole family went off to England.
I say puppy watching for lake front property is a fair trade.
Of course as a knitter, loafing time can be productive. The loom is warped with yummy BFL from Briar Rose Fibers:
And I've got some very easy and fun knitting with me.
The pattern is Bellevue and the yarn, Lorna's Laces Sock in Satsuma. I'm a few rows away from the armholes and hope that I can have this finished to wear to work.
That is, unless I win the lottery and can spend most of my time like this.
