Wow, it’s been a long time! Summer has been trucking along nicely, the Lowell Folk Festival was, as always, amazing. My favorite act was the Beat Ya Feet Kings with Black Alley. The Beat Ya Feat Kings were finalists on America’s Best Dance Crew and they did not disappoint!
Henrietta and I are still in love.
I decided to dip my feet into the analog/film pool, with mixed results (more on that later.)
I headed up to New Hampshire…
…And down to the Cape for a lovely and relaxing vacation.
While I was on vacation, I shot two rolls of film. I brought them home, sent them out to be developed and discovered that due to a combination of user error and camera malfunction, not a single print was exposed. Boo. The problem seems to be fixed, I am working on shooting roll three and my fingers are crossed that everything will come out they way it should.
Lyle Lovett puts on an amazing show! He sang ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ (I do love winter!) with Kat Edmonson and it was the highlight of the show for me. The Lowell Summer Music Series lineup this year has been excellent. We’re seeing the B-52s this Friday at Boardinghouse, I’m really looking forward to it!
I went to the New England Knits book signing at Hub Mills. It was so nice to see Cecily and Melissa again, and the book is out-of-this-world gorgeous. I have already ordered yarn for the Whale Watch Hat and there are a million other things I want to make.
And now comes the point where I bury the lead completely – Gist and I adopted Simon, the most adorable pooch ever.
Simon is a four-year-old that we adopted from Northeast Animal Shelter. We are totally and completely in love with him and so happy he is a part of our family!
