Summer weekends
Topic: August, 2008

I love summer!  I'm taking another 3 day weekend.....  probably the last one of summer.  Katelyn, Denise and I are heading up 395 tonight to go  through Mojave, Owens Valley, Bishop, Mono Lake, and Bodie then back through the Tioga Pass to Yosemite Valley on friday.  Bodie's an an old silver mining town, ghost town that is at the end of a narrow dirt road about 12 miles off 395; Mono Lake is an oasis is the great dry basin for millions of migratory birds; Tioga Pass is beautiful and the "back way" into Yosemite past Tenaya Lake, Tuolumne Meadows, and Lembert Dome.   Saturday, we will hike up to Glacier Point and then come down the Panorama trail past 3 waterfalls.  Sunday we head home.  

This morning on my way to work I spotted my sister jogging with her dog.  I didn't realize it was her and thought I wish that was me.... enjoying the morning, running with my dog (that I don't have) and free the rest of the day (so, ok, she's not "free" she's got 3 kids), but I hate being couped up in an office when the suns shinning outside!  Tomorrow I'll be outside, exploring!

I ended up taking friday off, again!  Woo-hoo, I love long weekends. However, my sister was gone this weekend along with her kids and I got BORED!  I didn't realize how much those kids annoying me actually entertained me!   She's got a great beach house and is there for 2 weeks!  Yikes!

I did sew, however.  I finished a sheath dress and jacket ... this pattern


i just need to add buttons.  I had some Guatamalen fabric and some raw silk in my stash that I thought would work well.  The dress has a nice drop waist and the jacket, well, I'm not sure about the jacket.  But it is summer and this is more of a Fall look, so I'm going to put the outfit into my closet and let it age a bit.  

I'll post a review over at PatternReview here  http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/readreview.pl?readreview=1&reviewnum=31180
