Today I finished the polka dot curly scarf I have been knitting. This little friend was the only one I could find to model my project. It has been so hot the past few weeks, that wearing a scarf is the last thing anyone wants to do.
Today was different though, and we woke to a cool, cloudy morning. It was a wonderful change and I went out to the yard to transplant marigolds. It felt so good to be outside in the cool air.
After breakfast we went for a scooter ride to Newport Beach. I think the cloudy morning had discouraged beach goers and traffic was very light as we traveled along Pacific Coast Highway. We stopped for lunch at the Crystal Cove shopping center and it too was amazingly quiet. The sudden change of weather is very welcome, and long overdue. Once home, I got to work and finished the scarf.
Right now I am looking forward to fall, but I have a feeling, in just a few weeks I will be looking for summer weather again.
