My plan, starting January 1, 2012, is to take a picture or two each and every day of Lake Nokomis, in Minneapolis. I grew up by this lake. I still live near it. I walk around it or drive by it almost daily, and I always see something interesting or beautiful, funny or strange, and wish I had taken pictures. So, that is my plan for the New Year. The self discovery part? You'll just have to read my posts.

It's A Hot One
It's hot and windy today, but that didn't keep the walkers away. Not too many bikers or boaters though - that wind is wicked. Lots of people cooling off in the water. Looked like a kayak class was supposed to happen near the big beach. I only saw a couple of boats actually on the water today, a canoe, and I saw a guy row across the entire lake, against the wind, in a small dingy. What a workout! There were white caps out there. His row back was a breeze! (see what I did there)
I walked the long way around to the little beach and then decided to sit and knit a bit near the wall. A dragonfly stopped on my project bag for awhile, checking out my progress.
Showed him my cast-on and the first couple of rows before I headed up the hill to Nokomis Beach Coffee for something cold to drink. Grabbed a strawberry smoothie then headed back for the rest of my walk. However, when I got to the top of the point it was nice and shady on the bench, and the breeze helped, so I sat and worked a few more rows.....
A lady rode by on her bike while I was knitting and said "You look like a picture sitting there". Pretty ironic. If only she knew what I've been up to here!
