Long Weekend in Vermont
I had a lovely, lovely long weekend the past few days. I drove up to Vermont with a group of friends and stayed in one friend’s family cabin. It has been a relaxing weekend of swimming, reading, relaxing, and bonfires. The cabin was cozy, the weather was excellent, and the lake was refreshing to swim in.
We found this cat puzzle in one of the rooms and our host, Brian, told us that the puzzle was awful and impossible to complete, and that every year he would take it out thinking, “It wasn’t THAT bad!” and try it again. He always managed to finish it but not without great difficulty. So we took it out and tried it and it was, in fact, very difficult. All the pieces are either seafoam green, or cat hair!
We were also visited by an actual cat, a neighbor’s pet named Oliver:
Having a bit of a vacation was so refreshing! Now…back to working and classes. Boo!
What I Wore: July 4, 2012
I had a nice, laid-back Independence Day. Just went over to my boyfriend’s, played some pool, grilled some yummy food, and challenged his brother and brother’s girlfriend to a badminton match. It was relaxing. And I got all red-white-and-blue for the occasion. I enjoy being festive.
That’s also a new pair of shorts! I made them from Colette pattern’s shorts pattern, Iris. This is my second time using Iris. I am pretty thrilled with them, they’re very cute and comfy.
