Sometimes ya just gotta give up and have fun…

I was supposed to get quite a bit done on my Harry Potter this morning… I got it out, figured out where I was on a pretty detailed pattern I haven’t touched since before Christmas, and knit part of a row. Then? Ya, I pretty much remembered why I put it down… Because, DANG!, it takes soooooo long to go around this tiny intarsia bag. And takes total concentration. So, when Maddy called from her Geegee’s to ask when we were leaving for the hike, I was all “Um… NOW!”.

Then I called my Mama, and begged and pleaded until she said she would come and enjoy the family hike. We all got in the van and took off up the Kancamagus in Lincoln, NH. We stopped at this great place that a friend suggested called The Wilderness Trail. It is a great, almost level, hike of different lengths and difficulties. We opted for a 3 mile round trip along the Pemi.

The hike started at this fantastic suspension bridge that spanned the river below.

There were wonderful mini-waterfalls along the way, and the girls just couldn’t resist climbing out and posing on the rocks…

My family? Is silly…

Sometimes I feel amazingly blessed!

I got home, had dinner, took a bath, put on jammies, picked up the Harry Potter bag, and my hands said “Um… not a chance hiker lady!”. So, lesson learned… Don’t drive 3 hours and hike for another 2 and then expect to go home and knit intarsia on size 5 needles.
