Sydney and I had a blast yesterday. We started with some sitting in the sun while it was still cool enough. She read, I knitted on a sock. Then, we went clothes shopping and found her several cute t-shirts for summer camp and some school clothes for next year.
I don't know if I've blogged about it, but the middle school she'll be in next year has a very strict dress code. Solid shirts (t or polo) in black, gray, maroon or gold and jeans or khakis. And, that's it. Of course, she didn't have any of those 4 colors in her closet, so we're picking them up whenever we can find them to get a jump on the school year.
Then, we had a nice sandwich and Which Wich. We enjoy their made to order sandwiches. And, then we went to a little shop called Cafe Monet for some pottery painting. She painted a dolphin and I did a retro teapot. We won't know how they came out until next wednesday, but I'll post a pic as soon as I can.
So, we're all relaxing. They're going to the pool this afternoon and I'm going to stay home and quilt. I can't justify going out on the predicted hottest July 4th on record to sit in the hot sun and eat bar b que. Give me air conditioning anytime.
So, if you're celebrating independence day, may you have cool breezes and cold watermelon and fireworks all around. Take care and enjoy the day, no matter what you choose to do. Lane
