Happy Father's Day
Russ hasn't managed to relax much today even though it's Father's Day since he's in the middle of remodeling our kids' bathroom and is anxious to get finished, but I guess you could say we celebrated yesterday.
We left around 7:30 for Shell Beach to eat breakfast at Zorro's. Mmmm.. Ranchero Suissas and Chilachiles! The only thing better than Mexican food for dinner is Mexican food for breakfast! Then, time for a hike. My friend Janet introduced me to a new hike last weekend while we were on our annual "Oceano Beach House" weekend. The hike is to a beach that is just a little south of Avila. Actually, I have been to the beach before. It's called Pirate's Cove, and when I was a teenager we used to go there because it was rumored to be a nude beach. We never saw anything exciting though, ha, ha, but it felt so daring to go there. The hike we went on is definitely new. There are amazing views of the ocean on one side of the trail and incredible views of some ginormous mansions on the other. Except for one, which looked like an enormous dentist's office, all of the houses were pretty much unbelievable. I think you'd call much of it Mediterranean architecture. I've decided that I need a light pink bougainvillea, so my yard can look just like Arnold Schwartzenegger's, which is one of at least twelve mansions we saw along the way....all we need to do will be to add another 12,000 square feet to our 1500 square foot house and we should be set!
House of Bread in San Luis Obispo and browsing through a few book stores, so my knitting for limited to the ride over and back.
For someone who bragged that she had her knitting mojo back, I've haven't gotten too far on any knitting projects.
I 'm moving pretty fast with this little project though. It's a little jacket for a friend, who's having a baby the end of this summer. It's a Drops Design pattern. I'm using some Jaeger Extra Fine Merino that I bought at a sale at Wildfiber's in Santa Monica a couple of summers ago. It's so luscious feeling, perfect for a little baby. Now if it gets cold before December this year, so she doesn't outgrow it before it gets cold !
