Bit of a wet weekend

But not as much as forecasted, at least not here. I can't speak for the rest of coastal southern California. It's not uncommon for us to have completely different weather from the mainland, sometimes due to being just far enough offshore that the edge of a  storm system will either just graze us or miss us completely. 

'Course the opposite is also true and that slightly brisk and breezy morning they barely noticed from the inside of climate-controlled buildings and standard automobiles lined up on the 405 parking lot was a great big whompin' gale that stopped cross-channel carriers and put our Harbor Patrol officers into overtime battling the churning seas and boats tossed about like toys. So I suppose it's all relative.

I captured of a worthwhile bit of Saturday Sky:



And a few basic chores were completed:



Don't you just love the smell of fresh roasting socks?

Man, I'da never thought of drying handknits that way! You are a smart one.

We've had a bit of "weather" here, but mostly just dark clouds parading across the skies.

Oh yeah....thanks for reminding me about drying handknits in the oven! I have this birthday vest for a co-worker that just won't dry inside...it's raining here too! I'll just crank up the oven to low and see what I bake up!
