Ramblings from a tired mind...

It's Monday and I'm tired. Not sure why I'm so tired, just am. So please excuse any strange ramblings today. I'll try to stay focused, I just can't promise it!

So, on Friday night I had to drive G up to the Interlake to her dance camp. It was a beautiful night for a drive. The sun shining, the temperatures warm, spring definately in the air. I got her up there in good time and was promptly dismissed - "Ok - see ya Sunday afternoon, Mom." - and she was off!

So I got back in the van about five minutes after getting out of it and began the just over an hour trek back to the city. Since it was such a lovely evening I decided to take a detour and head back towards the lake for a few minutes.

After taking some pictures and frightening a flock of birds off the water I got back in the van and headed back out to the highway. Along my way I came across something that caused me to pull off the road and take another picture. There was just something so odd about the sight.

For Sale? For Sail?

Boat in farmer's field near Gimli, MB.

It had a for sale sign, so I guess that explains the reason for the boat in the farmer's field. As I said, it just struck me as a strange place for a boat to be!

When I got home I decided it would be a good time to start knitting Clue 1 of the Mystery Lace KAL that I signed up for. Here's the result. I think it's quite pretty!

Knit in Malabrigo Lace


  1. I love the boat in a field! Too cool!

    And I love that purple you picked for the mystery lace.

  2. I just thought it was such an interesting place for a boat to be perched like that as if it was waiting to go somewhere.

    I'm really, really liking the purple malabrigo, although heaven knows where or when I'll ever find an occasion to use a fancy purple lace stole. Do people actually wear their lace? I wonder...
