For Project Spectrum (September), I went to one of the beaches by the bay, and looked for natural yellow elements. The sand and yellow reflections on the water here, made for a fun picture. Alas, no knitting for the color yellow was done. I’ll post other images, once I’ve sorted through them. But this one sums up the end of summer and beginning of autumn for me — bittersweet and filled with rain.

My sleepy self wonders

… After scrubbing the kitchen floors with a mix of vinegar and hot water….

What possessed the previous owners to choose an off-pink, slightly white linoleum for their kitchen? Even when it’s clean, it’s depressing. I think the answer would be “inexpensive” and “matches the absolutely mad patriotic red-white-and-blue wallpaper”.

I suspect the floors will be clean for a total of 2 days, at the most. Yep, labor day was kind of filled with cleaning (very overdue), but the rest of the weekend was devoted to fun and visiting friends. Hope your Labor Day was fun. Department of Labor has a history for you. I’m sure there’s a great deal more to the story.
