Got Pieces?

I do!

I've been lucky enough to have a few really golden days lately -- not perfect days -- the kids still do insane things, but nice enough in my head that these things aren't difficult to deal with. I even got them to help me mulch our front yard.

Some of them could lift an entire shovelful at once.

We made pizza,

and afterwards the kids and I biked to the beach. It was hot enough that the water felt great, and we slathered sunblock on our winter skin. While there, I finished the fiddly bind-off for this

and now I'm planning to block it tonight, and seam it up this weekend. Maybe in time to wear to the Ravelry get-together on Sunday. Wouldn't that be nice? Now I can launch into the Cobblestone for my sister.

But first, pie for dessert (clearing out the frozen Ollalieberries before we go and pick another 40 pounds in a month or so. Life is good.

I'm so so glad you are having wonderful days. It all sounds fantastic - biking to the beach? Well, now I'm a little green. We can bike to...prairie. And pie? Well.

Your Buck looks great. Woo hoo!

Yay! What an accomplishment - it must feel great to have all that knitting done! :0)

Sounds like a lovely day! And pie! Mmm. I'll trade you one cupcake for a slice of pie.

Lovely day. I love the finished Buck. And your pie! I'm far too lazy for lattice...I tend to do cobblers instead :)

Congrats on finishing the Buck (love the color btw) & hope you were enjoying the over the top gorgeous weather this weekend (it was a tad warm here, but I'm not complaining)
A Ravelry get-together? How fun! Who are you over there? You can find me (if you care to) as megsgarden.
