Today, the Tour de France went up to the mountains. We did the same, but then went to the river…

july 18 river

Outside my window… currently dark and a bit cooler

I am spinning for the Tour de Fleece… I did some spindling in the river with my sister today.  We used her camera so no photos yet but I hope to have some for tomorrow. It was a beautiful day in Vermont – I bet it must have been 10 degrees cooler than Connecticut.  The water in the river seemed almost hot.  It was so strange – I don’t think I ever remember thinking of any water in Vermont as warm.  Besides spindling, we picnicked,  shifted through stones looking for Jadeite, and just floated around.  It was lovely.

Spinning time for Stage 13, day 15… About 1 hour – maybe half an hour at the river and half an hour spinning Chaya while watching the Tour after we returned home.

Something I never thought I would do… post a photo of myself wearing a bathing suit on the internet!

I am thinking… If I hadn’t slept through Massachusetts both ways, I would probably not be wide awake right now at 11:20 p.m.

I am thankful for… my Sister and BIL

From the kitchen… quiet again though we did have an awesome pasta salad at my sister’s

I am wearing… denim mini (again, I know – it is very comfy) and blue striped top

I am going… I had to check my Outlook for this one as I haven’t printed our weekly schedule yet.  It doesn’t look like I’m going anywhere this week except to a field hockey tournament on Friday night.

I am reading… haven’t really started a new book yet.  I’m thinking of maybe picking up an Archer Mayor at the library tomorrow to see what he is all about.  Well, I know he is about crime, but I guess, more to see if it is something that I would like to read.

I am hoping… that the girls will be helpful around the house this week

I am hearing...  just the tail end of the primetime Tour de France on in the other room.  Yeah – I know!  Me, who is so unsportsy actually still watching after 14 stages!

Around the house… quiet – everyone is in bed and K at field hockey camp

One of my favorite things… hanging out in the West River

A few plans for the rest of the week… like I said above, this appears to be a quiet week here except for field hockey.  The is one week left with the Tour and then we have our summer vacation week.

Here is picture for thought I am sharing… (and if your thought is, “Are they doing the Charlie’s Angels pose with drop spindles?” then yes, you would be correct!)
