Too Much Cooking and No Hooking

We had four house guests over the weekend -- so lovely and fun to have them here, but Pete and I were exhausted by Sunday evening.  We cooked and cooked and cooked: lobsters, clams, salmon, pasta, corn, cole slaw, salads, birthday cake, cookies, waffle, eggs, bacon . . . .   The one good thing about all the cooking: we have leftovers for a few days now and I don't have to think about meals.

Yesterday I got back to work on my retro robot rug and made good progress on that.  Also worked on a proddy runner composed of selvedges of dyed wool, so I was productive after ignoring work for several days.  I plan to sit and hook this morning as well.

My sister Barb of thimblefolk is working on Halloween.  She has some charming stuff for sale here, if you are interested.

I wish I was one of those guests. I love, love seafood.
It's nice not having to cook for a few meals when you got some yummy left over food.

Cute well dressed cat.

Have a great weekend. We are almost through July, I can't believe how fast time goes.
