Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day! Do you have any plans for the weekend? I took the day off work today and went to the beach.

I've been wanting to go for sooo long. The beach is less than an hour away, but on summer weekends I will only drive there early in the morning because traffic can be a nightmare later in the day. After getting up early to commute to work all week, I have a hard time moving early on the weekends.

It was sunny and warm today, which surprised me because it's often freezing at the coast during the summer.

I would love to stay in one of those colorful little beach rentals for a long weekend so I can wake up and be right there without having to drive.

I had to take a break from blogging this week. It has been so busy at work I've been coming home exhausted. I haven't been doing much knitting or any other crafts, just reading, watching television and shopping. Look at the cute kitty I picked up at Anthropologie.

I will visit your blogs this weekend and get caught up. Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend.

Love the red, white and blue yarn! I'm envious of you going to the beach. There isn't one around here in this land-locked province. It's also been too cold for that lately. Have a great holiday weekend!

Oh how I love the beach, going at the end of the week! Love your kitty in the bag:)

Have a blessed weekend! HUGS!

How awesome to be within driving distance of the beach! But I can completely understand about not wanting to drive much on the weekends when you have to comute all week.

And such a cute kitty...I must look for those the next time I'm at Anthropologie. LOL ;-)

Stacy, love your header and your r,w, and blue yarn!

I love the beach! Those colorful cottages look fantastic!

We went on a dinner cruise on Lake Erie last night. We saw a spectacular sunset. The weather was clear and crisp...fireworks in every direction.

Tomorrow we head up to my brother's beach house for fun in the sun.

Have a great weekend!

HAPPY 4TH to you too!

So glad you took the day off and went to the beach, the weather looks lovely. It was raining here yesterday but today the sun is shining! Wow, what a cute find at the store. Definitely...a 'keeper' :)


I agree with the yarns together like that! Good idea.
I would love to go to the beach and relax. Good for you!
Happy 4th and I'll be mailing the ATC on Mon/Tues!
