Sedona summer

We've retreated to Sedona for this midsummer month ...


It's our own writing retreat.  We're in a little house that backs up to forest land.  Spend the days working on dissertation and grant proposals.  Take Isis for walks -- on this trail behind the house -- in the cooler hours of the morning and evening. 

And of course there's knitting in the evenings. Apropos of the red rock landscape, I've been swatching with my red yarn from Thirteen Mile.  It's hard to think of sweaters when it's 100 degrees outside, but that's my plan.

Lovely picture. Have a productive, relaxing and fun retreat.
Please continue to share your retreat adventures and respites (hoping to relax vicariously through you).

I'm slowly working on a sweater too. One has to work a season behind (ahead?) so that the FO is ready when the correct weather comes. My goal is to be done at the end of this month, but I'm getting off-task and may run behind.

Blessings for your time away! My husband and I will be taking a 3-month sabbatical late summer into fall. Time for travel, rest, peace, renewal, creating and writing. And of course, my knitting will travel with us.

Enjoy that beautiful landscape and all your stroll time with your pup. Hope the writing is fruitful, too!
