Independence Day

First and foremost I must say I hope everyone is having a very safe and happy Independence day!

I've got a little bit of everything going on today.

First I bring you le cardigan pour le* Tour de France KAL. This is the status as of now. This has been the status for a long time now. I started it in maybe February or March? I had full intentions of finishing it before it got too warm to wear a sweater. I failed.

I am competing under the maillot a pois rouges**. The Mountain Climber. I aim to finish the body of le cardigan by the end of le Tour on July 29th. However, if I don't, that's OK as long as substantial progress has been made.

Next, I bring you just why I love living in the Roanoke Valley. It's a bit hazy in the pictures but I think you'll get the idea.

That's my city in the first one and why the bear went over the moutain in the second one. What? You don't remember why the bear went over the mountain? Why to see what he could see, of course.

I took those pictures coming home from The Explore Park. My camera was on the verge of battery death so I took very few pictures. But I did get this one:

A Great Wheel.

Next, you get Judy's finished socks. Already mailed off to her:

Lastly, I bring your the country girl's version of "Where's Waldo?"

I did leave it full sized in case you need a little help.

Be safe everyone!

*the cardigan for the (cardigan in French is sadly the same therefore not very exciting to write in French but I thought I would anyways)
