a fruit and lead-filled fourth

we started out this weekend with a visit to sop's parents, where the shade was plentiful, the conversation was relaxed and the black raspberries were ripe and yummy. then it was off to my parents, where the conversation was lively, the cards fierce and the cherries were ripe and yummy. the weekend continued with much lead-paint removal from sop's soffit and fascia (wow, i use those words like i know what they mean) interspresed with fruit eating. and that is as detailed as i can get without pictures:

lmmh caulking it up for good measure:


sop decides to run to the store for more grinding disks:



by this time, the cherry bowl is almost empty (click to see HOW empty):


but that's okay, we have MORE:


in the afternoons, after inhaling minimal amounts of lead, there is nothing like a bowl of ice cream with black raspberries:


followed in the evening hours by a wee bit of knitting:

that's a lot of cherries. there is something similar about the raspberries and the beaded knitting. what are you making?

Very nice. I love beads/knitting - what a great small project for beads. I like your color combinations as well.
