What's New: 6.25.14

It is so awesome that summer has finally arrived, even if the rain continues to dampen our days.  The rain has, of course, contributed to the growth of very large mosquitos. Went to a wedding this weekend "up north", as they say, and returned with more than 15 new bug bites.  I am a mosquito's perfect lunch.  They bite, I swell, itch, and get big bite marks that take a week to heal.  This is all much to my husbands dismay..He wants a cabin "up north" and I cannot even fathom the thought of more mosquito bites.  YUK.  Thank goodness I have my knitting to escape our state bird, the Mosquito!
