It was raining earlier and more showers may fall. I expect that this weather will have messed with quite a few folks' plans for the three-day weekend.
Over in Paris, today's French Open matches were called off. I'd hoped to see some of them today on television, while it was too wet for another walk in the Park. Perhaps tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I thought I would show you all some photos of parts of my recently completed knitting commission. It is unusual for me to combine green and yellow hues and it was fun to give it a go.
I hope that the ducks seem to be on water.
I've now moved on to a simpler project that will combine various greens with softer tones.
Some of the colors are very close in value (light-to-dark ratio) which can give an additional softness to the knitted results.
Yesterday, I took my trusty Vornado electric fan down from the closet top shelf where it spends its winter. If I am to continue this wooly knitting, I will need the fan close by my side.
Along with the rain, the temperature topped 90 F over the weekend. Seeking a bit of chill, I went to see a movie, A Bigger Splash, at a neighborhood cinema. Perhaps some of you all have seen it? Ralph Fiennes plays one of the characters, and he kept reminding me of Robin Williams. I never would have anticipated my response.
In case anyone who has not seen the film and would like to do so, I will say no more.
As I have been typing, I realize that the sky has cleared and the temperature seems more comfortable. I think I will go out for a walk and find some ice cream.
Thank you all for your visits and comments. I hope those of you who also have a three-day weekend have found much joy in the open hours.
