Japanese Sea Nettle
I think the girl was impressed, I know I was!
And of course afterwards, we had to make a slight detour on our way home to Three Bags Full, a yarn shop in Vancouver. They were having their 1-year celebration and I got more lace yarn – this time JaggerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk in Copper. It’s so soft! But now I really need to get a lace shawl going……I’m getting too much in my stash!
It was a fun day, but ended with an emergency call from my daughter to come and help get things set up for the annual Deep Cove Daze. She was the organizer for the event this year — pretty impressive for a 19-year old university student! She was tired, it was dark and there was still much to do, so we all got there in the nick of time to set up and get things ready for the next morning when the vendors, sponsors and entertainment would be arriving. Poor girl slept there with her friends/co-workers in a tent and sleeping bag….until the rain just thundered down and just about swept them away. Lucky they had a u-haul truck to take refuge in and that kept them dry.
It turned out to be a beautiful day, a well-run day and still going on (at least the beer-garden was!) when we limped out of there this evening.
I think we all deserve a good night’s sleep, especially Robin. Very proud of you babe!
