sunny Sunday

It was a pretty day today! Not too hot and just a little breeze to keep the mosquitoes from being pesky. I drove out to Craven to take a look at a couple of Golden Retriever puppies at Jean Juno's place. I had the forethought to throw my camera in my purse before I left but totally forgot to take pictures of the puppies because I was entranced and distracted by them. They are so cute I am apologizing now for forgetting to get a picture to share with you. I did remember to take this picture before I left though. It was taken in front of Jean's house overlooking the valley. Imagine the smell of sun-warmed grass with faint but distinct whiffs of sage in the mix. Summer.

I finished the skein of sheltie and Targhee plied with pin-drafted Cormo.

And finally, this picture has been lurking in my camera since last Sunday. I took it just before I picked the cucumber and shared it with Dan. It's definitely the earliest that we've eaten a home-grown cucumber. The cucumber plants in the garden are still babies. I bought this plant at Costco and it sits on the deck where it's sheltered and sunny. Unfortunately the plant's leaves are getting moldy-looking and I think that this one cuke might be its only harvest.

HOLY COW--I don't have a single cucumber yet. I don't expect any for at least two more weeks. I'm jealous.

PS: After Sydney died, my husband was in a pet store and there was a litter of Golden Retriever puppies and my husband, he of the completely unflappable demeanor, just started CRYING. I do so love him.
