Yay! The weather has finally broken and today was about as beautiful a day as you could ask for. The sun was out and the humidity was about gone. So how did we spend this paragon of a day? Cleaning the house and doing various chores that it has been just too hot to do. Tomorrow we are planning a picnic at the park on the Delaware River. Red Bank Battlefield is part of the National Park system and is really nice. There is not much but open spaces, some pavilions and the river. It is across the river from the Phila airport and you can watch the planes come in.
Friday night we went to an outdoor concert at a park. A band of local Irishmen called Blackthorn played in a lovely park pavilion. I had never really listened to them before and must say I was not enjoying the music because there seemed to be too much distortion from the speakers. I thought I must be getting too old until my brother whispered "their sound man sucks". Whew. It was not me. They actually sounded good as we walked away toward our car. The amazing thing was that I needed a hoodie and a woolen sweater! It was cool, damp and breezy. I did get a few inches done on my second sock. This is how sock number one looks on my foot. Pretty, huh?
