Weekend in pictures

Ate cherries, lots and lots of cherries (using the berry bowl from Bridgman Pottery!)
Spent 80% of the weekend knitting in an attempt to finish up my Ophelia cardigan. Casting off today, seaming & blocking tonight and maybe, just maybe, I can wear it tomorrow night.
Drank grape soda in a glass bottle. Had forgotten how good grape soda in a glass bottle is.

Cooked some tasty things, including Shrimp and Grits (used Bobby Flay's recipe), Cherry-Almond Cake (from Martha) and threw together a mozzarella, tomato & basil pizza. And we are more purple pole beans from the garden. Yum.
It was bizarro world in Memphis the last few days. The humidity was practically non-existent and the weather was so gorgeous and the highs were in the 80's, almost unheard of in the middle of July. I tried to spent as much time as possible in my red wicker chair outside. Mosquitoes were unfazed though and still found time to munch on me.
