Fetching, Part One

One of my Fetching fingerless gloves is done, as you can see. I think this photo really shows the gradations of color, even though they are subtle. I thought it was really cool the way the fushia tones seemed to come up over the cabled portions and the redder tone dominated the straight ribbing part of the glove. I don't know if this is how the second one will work out or not. I'm really pleased with this pattern so far.

I've made quite a bit of progress on the Prosperous Plum Tank. In fact, I cast of the stitches for the back, so now I'm just working on the front. I figure I should have that done fairly soon, so I didn't take any pictures for today. Maybe by Friday I'll have a completed top to show you.

So far, I'm keeping up with my exercise goals. I went to the gym on Monday and yoga last night. Today's an off day and then tomorrow, it's back to the gym. I bought a really cute dress at Nordstrom to wear during the wedding festivities in the Hampton's, but it sure would look a little better if I lost 5 pounds. So, that's what I'm trying to do with the exercise. That might mean I have to forego a scone at Rebecca's on Saturday - well, one little scone won't hurt, right?I've heard it's going to be hot as hell this weekend, so actually, Rebecca's might be a bad choice. Does anybody have any other suggestions? I will try to see if we can use my parents' place, but my mom had a bad oyster a couple of days ago and is still on the mend. Since my place is air conditioned, it's a possibility as well. Let me know!

What about somewhere outside with shade? It's usually cooler outside with the breeze. There's always Balboa Park. My place is always open. There are some beautiful spots at Torrey Pines too (besides just the beach itself). There's that bistro on Coronado(food ordering not required and they have wine). Just some ideas.

I like the idea of picking an outside place for this week, but I also don't mind meeting at Rebecca's again either. I know. Really helpful.

Yeah, Rebecca's gets too hot for me after awhile, and I know they've got outdoor seating, but there's often someone smoking out there and with my asthma...

I like the idea of meeting somewhere outside (and shaded), but I don't really have any ideas or preferences.
