Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Beauty Therapy

Nope, no spa treatments here. Just a day spent in the unbelievably gorgeous Capay Valley at a harvest festival. An organic farm located there has a big thank you day for their CSA subscribers, and it's open to everyone. I think it's possibly a fundraiser for them, too.

What it was for me was a chance to be surrounded by beauty, and I feel as though I've been breathing more oxygenated air or something.


The bigger kids got to run through the very well-appointed kids area without supervision for an hour or so, which had to be a kick for them. We kept running into old friends -- our midwife! My sister's midwife! Yet another one of the homeschoolers! Someone who looks familiar, but we can't place them! Thing 4 was all about the animals.


I would have preferred, in the main, a quiet day to just wander around the farm, but then I would have missed the contra dancing.


What incredible, delightful fun.

It looks like a fantastic day! I love the area we live in--just a short drive and it's a whole new world.

Hey, what happened to the dishwasher post? It disappeared in the time I tried to comment on it! I was going to say that you don't want to pout about running--if you didn't run, you wouldn't look so good in your jeans when you contra dance with mysterious men at hoe-downs.

I love that picture of you! That looks like a beautiful day - I need a day with more oxygen or something. I've been looking for a farm that we could visit and, other than a living history one, I can't find one. You guys live in a beautiful place all right.
