SummerKidz at Rae’s Yarn Boutique

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Summer is in full swing. This means that potential students are on vacation and my classes are thinning out. I started summer with five kid knitters but for the last two weeks I have been down to two loyal and dedicated young ladies.

Last week, I was sitting on the couch between these lovely ladies and Carol (another instructor at Rae’s) noticed that it might be a nice photograph to get the three of us sitting like that. So thanks to Carol, here is a shot of us, the two girls with knitting in their hands.

This has been a wonderful summer thus far. Thanks to the kids and their families for making it so.

We still have August to go, and I am looking forward to it. These girls are not just good knitters, but they are good company as well.

Incredible Cloud

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I was on my way to the post office the other day (it is across from a farm owned by Michigan State University) and saw this incredible cloud. It was just huge, and almost at the top of the fluffy cotton-candy structure, there was this sort of swoosh that was smooth and totally horizontal. It looked a bit like a brim on a hat.

I have never seen anything like this cloud before. I pulled over into a parking lot to take photos before the cloud changed shape. The odd thing was that it stayed that shape for a long time (though the swoosh got more pronounced as time passed).

Beautiful, isn’t it?
