“Monday Monday”

“It was all I hoped it would be!”

Millstream looking beautiful!

There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile. He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house.

Because of the Retreat, I had Monday off.  I spent it knitting, walking and lazing around.  I argued with the computer and my Mad About Ewe Blog Posting – after I wrote it, I saved the draft – the computer lost it – it disappeared!  The Computer ate my homework!!   LOL!

Covered in glowing green moss!

It was sunny in the morning and we walked around Bowen Park.  It had rained the night before and everything was gleaming in the morning sun.  Millstream was quite high.  Everything was green; green with moss; green with buds; just green.  When the sun was just right – the green glowed.  It was a beautiful morning.

IMG_9739I really wanted some good pictures.  As I was trying to focus – every time – they would “duck” under water in search of their next bite.  It was uncanny.  According to my book they were Barrows Goldeneye Ducks.  It must have been a mating pair.  They stayed together as they bobbed around ducking under the water in unison and always bobbing back up still close together.

On Monday Sophie reverted to a puppy.  She ate my yarn.  Not the yarn that I had lots of but the yarn that I did not have lots of – the Lush.  I think that I rescued it in time.  I hope that I rescued it in time.  I saved every little bit, just in case I need to piece together the last little bit of edging.  I did get past the midway point with my second ball, but I think that fate has decreed that this must be the project that I worry about all the time.

Happy Knitting and Walking
