At the river

Summertime and the livin' is easy...

Off to a good start. The Russian River is allowing us some fun and relaxation. 

The Kid got up at 6:52 to make his friends eggs. (Man friend helped out slicing the back bacon)

Everyday is a trip in the canoe, a wade through the water. There have been and will be day guests. There have been and will be treats cooked in a strange kitchen.

Marshmallow and raspberry brownies.

So far I am a monogamous knitter. Just working the double breasted Henry baby sweater.

I always pack too much knitting for vacations, but who knows, maybe I'll get a chance to cast on something new.


  1. Looks like a great place to spend vacation time. You can NEVER have too much vacation knitting!!!!!

    Enjoy the week!

  2. To die for brownies! Have a good time.....better too much knitting n the suitcase instead of running out!

  3. That's a gorgeous kitchen. I would be in it all day too.
    Have a great time!

  4. I always pack too much as well. Then I know I have knitting choices. Lovely vacation time :) Have fun!

  5. Wow, does that look like a nice vacation! Enjoy every second. :-)

  6. Do we get to see the river? I am afraid to take my camera too near water.....I've lost that battle before!
    That kitchen looks like I would love it.
    How are the bugs?
    Better to pack to much knitting than too little!
    can you hear the River babbling?

  7. It's good to be prepared for any situation: lost or broken needles, finishing a project early, knotty yarn, etc. Knit on, and on, and on!

    Oh my, those brownies look delicious!

  8. Packing too much is way better than not packing enough! You never want to be left without!

  9. Yes, I always pack far too much spare time stuff - books, notebooks, knitting. And I hardly get a moment for any of it. It sounds as though you're having a wonderful time. CJ xx

  10. I love how your son takes care of his buddies. What a great place to knit from. Your Russian River trips remind me of my Auntie J who'd visit her friend there and would always help her clean when the flooding happens.

  11. The knitting, super eating and canoe trips sound great, but you had me at the brownies!! Have a wonderful time at the river!

  12. We stayed at the Russian River years ago at Thanksgiving time and loved it. I'll bet it's even nicer in warm weather! Enjoy!
