Saturday in the Park .... and the Pool.

Summer is here. This past Saturday the 14th was World Wide Knit in Public Day so several of us from my local yarn shop, Yarns Ewenique, met across the street from the shop in the Veteran's Memorial Park from 9am-12pm to knit in public. Mostly to raise awareness of the craft.

Since it was also Flag Day there was more traffic than I'd originally thought. There must have been some sort of race going on near by because about the time we showed up to start, groups of people were walking by with those numbers pinned to their shirts. I assume they were on their way home after running.

We had about a dozen ladies, most I knew, a couple I didn't, and we sat and knit and chatted. People waved and said hello. One lady pulled up in her car and asked if we were celebrating Flag Day. That was kinda funny. We told her why we were there and she started clapping. Little old ladies are cute that way.

We didn't actually make it all the way until noon. Around 11:30am the breeze turned hot and it just got too icky to sit outside. So, we called it a day and all packed it in. Several of us went back over to the shop to sit in the nice cool air for a while. There was another group we heard about who were supposed to be knitting from 9am to 6pm on the lawn of a local museum near by the yarn shop. The particular lawn they said they would be on has zero shade at all. I wondered if they were going to have those tent type things so they didn't all die of heat stroke. When I drove past on my way home, I saw they were all up next to the museum building under the shade. I was glad to see that.

Later that afternoon I had some friends over to swim at my house. We had a blast! There were about 10 of us and we just laughed and talked and floated all afternoon. We munched on chips and had various and sundry adult beverages. After we were sufficiently pruned up and sun burned, we went inside and ordered pizza for dinner. I had a great time with the girls I already knew pretty well and got to know a few others a lot better. We will definitely do that again soon, such a good time :)

Even though at the end of the day I was dead beat, that was the most fun I've had in a long long while. Thanks to all my good friends who spent the day with me. I love y'all!
