I thought that was a cool title for a movie when I was a kid — If it’s Tuesday, this must be Belgium. My father and his wife are currently in Germany, I think. They have been traveling for about a month now. As I was watching Germany roll over Australia in the World Cup on Saturday, I wondered if they had watched the game somewhere in Germany.
I took the afternoon off on Friday, and went to the downtown library and then to the pottery studio. I didn’t make anything — just worked on centering, coning, and trying to make a decent cylinder. I have nearly gone through a bag of clay already and need to buy another bag this evening. I save what I destroy on the wheel and will rehab it soon.
The weekend was either hot and humid or rainy. I never did get the pug out to the park for a walk. I did get the front flower beds weeded and mulched. Other than that, I just kind of hung out in the house and did the usual humdrum household chores and read, knitted, watched the World Cup and the Cooking Channel.
But I do have knitting photos to share.
I need to add a button and a loop, but am waiting until I have someone to give it to.
I bought the yarn for this scarf several years ago on a weekend trip to Lawrence. I cannot recall the name of it. But it is lightweight and has an interesting texture.
This dishtowel is from a pattern I found at the Purl Bee site. I used eco recycled cotton paired with a sage Sugar n’ Cream for this towel. It is rather small, but I like the way it looks.
And I made an Italian White Bean and Tuna Salad over the weekend. A can of cannellini beans, a can of tuna in olive oil, thinly sliced celery, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Easy peasy!
