Man it's hot.... It's so hot - that even walking from my car to work - I broke out in a sweat. I'm not normally a sweaty person. I don't really sweat that easily. Sure - if I'm exercising or something I will - but just walking outside in the sun I'm normally able to maintain some form of unsweatiness. But not today and not this entire weekend.
Saturday was great - despite the heat. We went out with some friends on their boat and I had the best time! The heat does't really matter when you're cruising along at 50 miles per hour in a speed boat. I even got up the courage to try riding on this tube thingie while the boat sped along.
Here's a pic of what I mean - neither of these crazy people is Me!
It was both exhilarating and terrifying! I went with my friend's 14 year old daughter - she kept saying "faster! faster!" and giving the thumbs up (go faster sign). I was just screaming bloody murder too terrified to release the death grip I had on the handles to give the slow down (thumbs down) signal. In the end I survived and have a new found respect for the power of teenagers to hold on and never get tired. My arms are so sore today!!
Sunday - was too hot to do much of anything - so I started a sock. My second pair of socks to be exact. I loved this yarn - it's Knit Picks Memories in Redwood Forest.
I'm doing the Knitty pattern - Thuja.
So far - they are coming along well. I took a picture of them next to my amazing canna flower. I thought they complimented each other brillantly.
The flower stalk is almost as tall as me!! Here's another shot of this gorgeous flower:
I got an email from my flip flop exchange pal - I can't wait to get a cool package made up for her!
