River Picnic and Drive on the Back Roads
Back roads, the winding ones with less traffic, is where we find sights to awwwwww about, and last evening was no different.
Today our weather has cooled down quite a bit, there's a healthy breeze, and I'm weary from yesterday's jaunt. Our calendar is open for the next 24 hours, and I'm declaring it a hobby day. If I find enough gumption to get out of my jammies, I'll get dressed and cozy in with a new kumihimo (koo-me-he-mo) project. Kumihimo is an ancient Japanese braiding art, and I'm teaching myself how to do it. So far I've made three ankle bracelets weaving 17 strings, and I'm to the point where I'm thinking about adding beads. Can't say for sure that I'm ready for that yet. Maybe I'll stick with the basics yet for a while.
Ta-ta for today.
