Day at the Lake

Today we went to the lake. Those that have lived here forever call it Clarks Hill although it was renamed Thurmond a few years back (back around the time we first moved here). It's a hoot because we live in Georgia, drive through South Carolina so we can get to the Georgia side of the lake...go figure.

The day was gorgeous, not too hot, clear blue sky and the water was not cold. It also wasn't crowded or noisy either.

Water level is down so the boys swam across to the beach on the other side where we were.

Doug cooked burgers and dogs for lunch. Food is always better outdoors (and cooked by someone else).

Katie swimming

Douglas, always obliging and letting me take his picture,

Rat at the Lake

I have never ever seen a rat in the wild until today.

I am not a big fan of rats, however, after my sister raising them for years and years I am not afraid of them either. Yes I know they can be germ and disease ridden...I wasn't playing with it but I wasn't running away either.....

Apparently Michael had thrown a piece of sausage at Katie and the rat came and took it away....

stopping briefly to take a bite.....

before running off into the bushes with his prize

Another sock done...this time a pink one (my very favorite color). It's called Diamond Lace and is done in Tofutsies sock yarn.

You Are the Index Finger

You are ambitious, driven, and capable.
You aren't afraid to take responsibility for your actions - or place the blame on whoever deserves it.
You are honest, free thinking, and objective. You see things in your own way - and you aren't afraid to let everyone know about it.

You get along well with: The Thumb

Stay away from: The Ring Finger

Finished Bamboozle Socks

I've finished the Bamboozle summer Dream Socks that I used the Tofutsies yarn #723. The first sock didn't stripe but the 2nd one did. Not sure what I did to make that happen.

'Hats off to a Cure' Charming Tales by Dean Griff for Breast Cancer...isn't she cute??

first coat of trim paint on the right window...the left is undone and looks quite icky next to the freshly painted one
