Knitting in the rain

Blogging has been quite frustrating this summer as my hotspot device for the internet seems to eat the gigs I am allowed. It is expensive and slow and I suppose I am spoiled with unlimited internet in Florida. So I have been on sharing on Facebook which I can do from my phone. And I have been knitting as I have watched my little garden  NOT thrive. 

These zinnias should have been from my garden but the Japanese beetles live in that pot.

We stopped at our favorite farm stand for tomatoes and fresh corn and they had big bunches of flowers for sale and I bought a bouquet of zinnias. They cheered me right up!

Aren't the colors just glorious?

Rainy days are good for knitting. I finished two projects this past week.

Now I shall go and knit and watch the rain. Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Lazy Summer Days

It has been hot. And we are quite lazy. Whatever needs to get done is done early and we then sit on the porch of the cabin and wait for a breeze. Sometimes we wait all day!

Suppers have been simple - very often a cold plate. The other night we did grill chicken thighs and they were wonderful. You can find the recipe here

I love the counters in the cabin - red linoleum!

Very good dinner with leftovers for another meal. We served the chicken with farm fresh corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes.

I still have limited internet but please know that I appreciate my followers old and new and I love comments. I shall be a better follower when I get back to Florida.

Have a wonderful week!
