Memorial Day Weekend
This is the holiday weekend when Larry and I lay in a supply of groceries and stay close to home. The roads are usually full of traffic, all of the entertainment spots around L.A. are jammed and most restaurants are busy too. It's the first weekend of summer but you wouldn't guess it from the crazy weather we've been having. Last weekend it was 100 degrees in parts of L.A. This weekend it's cloudy, windy, cold and raining. There are spots in the nearby mountains that had snow yesterday! There was a tornado in Riverside! It's the apocalypse, fer shure.
Due to our pending home construction project, we'll be cleaning out and clearing out this weekend. I have much yarn stash organization to accomplish. I want to tackle my closets too. Maybe I'll even get to clearing out old kitchen stuff.
Current Yarn Bargains to Organize
In preparation of Spring cleaning, I've been going through some old photo albums and came across many pix from my years as a camper and counselor at Idyllwild School of Music and Arts up in the San Jacinto mountains, above Palm Springs. I spent at least a few weeks every summer from the time I was about 14 until I was 20 in Idyllwild. For a few years, when I was a counselor, I spent the entire summer up there. I was a student in the art/painting/drawing/pottery program. Many of my friends were in the various music programs. I've recently re-connected with some old pals from those days. We're hoping to meet up sometime in the Fall. I have to say, the best summers of my life were spent up on The Hill.
