July 20, 2009

Considering that as of Friday we had no plans, we had a pretty busy weekend.

After the usual errands on Saturday, we took a walk over to the Mystic River Music Festival.   It was … okay.  We were only there about a half-hour, it was a muggy, buggy scene.  But I did get a free shopping bag, and the Peep got a balloon out of the deal.

On the way back, minding my own business, I had the crap scared out of me.  The path runs along the river for a bit, and there are a few yards of underbrush between the path and the river.  All of a sudden something started thrashing around in the underbrush – I couldn’t tell if it was a coyote, or a raccoon, or what.

Larry had the camera (and clearly, a steadier constitution than I), and alertly snapped a few pictures.  A wild turkey, of all things.

Then on Sunday, we took a drive over to the zoo again.  Our membership has now more than paid for itself, and we still have at least one more visit in our future this summer.

It was another sunny, hot day (not complaining in any way, just reporting), and the animals were  sacked out in the shade:

Mexican Wolf

Well, almost all of them.

Chilean Flamingos

In other news, I finished the first pair of Christmas socks on Sunday!

I’ll cast on for the second pair tonight.  Since these took a total of two weeks, during which there were approximately four days in which they sat idle, I think I can easily finish them before we leave for vacation on the 1st.
