Adventuring

On a beautiful day in Nova Scotia, the Annapolis Valley as seen from the South Mountain.

There were cow sightings, and once we started driving on the fire roads, lots of pretty butterflies (feel free to help me out with the variety). There were so many in the couple places that we stopped that it really wasn't much of a challenge to catch them in our hands.

Of course the kids were significantly more excited about jumping in for a swim in one of the many lakes in this part of the province.

While they cooled off, I reverted to exemplary knitterly behaviour and cast on a mitten. After all, we may be blessed with glorious heat and sunshine for another couple months, but snow is sure to fly here, sooner than any of us will be prepared to welcome it.

Beautiful, baby. I want the mitten pattern plz. Whenever double knit a mitten, the decreases ruin EVERYTHING. Maybe I can finally decipher that Robin Hansen book......

You live in such a beautiful place. I can almost feel how refreshing that water would be to jump into...of course, I'd rather be on shore knitting the mittens:)
