Kind of Perfect Day

For my Mother's Day gift, I got to do some things I love.   There was chocolate, flowers, a small tool kit, and the rest of the Mars Trilogy.  Then, we headed to one of my favorite places to go on a Sunday, after Church (minus my daughter, who was working)...



...where someone experienced the beach for the first time and didn't really love it.



I also relaxed and read The Great Gatsby for the first time while working on the startlingly vivid tanline on my legs,

had a long run with my most willing running partner,




witnessed crazy kite skillz,




and, you know what's coming, I knitted on a small beachy project- the Twin Cities Headband, which happens to be 50% off thru Saturday with a special coupon code, along with all of the designer's other patterns.  I also snagged the Traverse City Tube Top.



I used some Rowan denim from my stash and I think I'll really like how this turns out in denim.



Then, as if all of that weren't enough, everyone watched Star Wars with me because I couldn't see it on May the fourth.

  6. It was perfect, Monica! I love the beach and summer, but toward the end, when humidity is crazy here, I long for colder climates.
