I enjoy the morning sunrise....it's still a surprise that it comes so late and I find that the day is getting on before I realize it. I am highly synced to sunrise and sunset. The leaves are gone, there is fresh snow on the mountains and we are thoroughly enjoying the fall weather. This is the latest we have ever been here and I'm liking the wearing of the jeans and sweaters. It's still quite warm in the afternoons.
Speaking of sweaters......this has been a project for about 10 months. But it mostly sat in its basket as I pondered some of the harder aspects. But, I'm wanting to look at new projects so trying to finish up those floundering along the way. This is made of Lopi wool which is what Icelandic sweaters are made out of. It is quite coarse and I"m hoping it will soften after a nice soak and take on a finished look. I made this in the round and then actually cut it down the middle. This is a very intimidating thing for knitters but so far, it is behaving as the youtube knitters said it would.
The other day, a friend and I went" shopping in Delta"......that sounds like an oxymoron I realize. Delta is about 30 min north and is reminiscent of towns from the '50's. We pass thru regularly coming and going to Grand Junction. Many stores are empty but those that are open seem prosperous. There is a nice shop that many go to for good brands of clothing and accessories. We also had a great lunch at one of two Mexican restaurants on Main. Note that Colorado blue sky !
Montrose has some very nice shopping on Main as well. And surprisingly, a very high end boutique.....cashmere and beautiful boots and leather wearables. Altho it looks like just a stoplight on the way to somewhere else (Telluride), there are some impressive homes and ranches out there in the hills.
And I've been remiss in tooting my horn !! While we were away in CT, the last luncheon of the Ladie's Golf League was held. And guess who won Most Improved Golfer for 9 Holes ???? I was stunned. On League days I usually play 9 holes but not always so guess they thought that's where I fit in for this award. I didn't get a big check or $$$ to spend in the Pro Shop but I'll take my name on a plaque anytime. Now I just have to prove that I deserve it.
And on a happier note......... This book seems to be the rage of late on the many blogs that I read.
I think we've been doing this for awhile now.....
