Sox on the Beach

Read it again, before your mind starts wandering off into the wrong direction. After all, I'm, what we call in Germany, a grass widow. I don't even know if that is a valid term here in the states, but pretty much it means married, but temporarily separated. So keep your mind on track, after all this is a knitting blog, even though this is going to be a family trip entry. As proof however, that there was some knitting going on, here is a picture of my monkeys out of the bag on the beach.



The other pictures are my boys playing in the water and the sand, which we had fun getting out of the hair afterwards. I guess that means laundry and a cleaning session with the Jeep tomorrow. Fun!





My neighbor also took a picture of me, but since I didn't want to alert green peace and the coast guard about a beached animal, I deleted those snap shots and spare you. Sorry, I just don't happen to look like Tyra Banks, even though my scale has been very positive with me. I love my scale lately (when it gives me the right numbers, that is!). Unfortunately self consciousness is something that I'm having trouble overcoming. That's why there are not very many pictures of me out in public.

I think we're all worried about how we look although in the scheme of things, it doesn't really matter. I'm sure you look great!

The kids look like they're having a BLAST!!

Ich war auch letzte Woche eine Strohwitwe!
And no worries about the photos, I posted a picture of myself last week, so Greenpeace is already busy trying to figure out how a whale got to the top of the Walberla :)

I seriously doubt you look anywhere near as bad as you think you do in the photograph. But I completely understand, because I hate having pictures taken of me, too.

I envy your time at the beach. It looks like so much fun!

Oh sun, I think I remember what that looks like. What fun you are having at the beach - lucky you! And I've heard the term "grass widow" before but I think it is more Continental and really not used much in the US, unless it was in the latter part of the 19th Century. And you know even Tyra Banks doesn't look like Tyra Banks, so don't sweat it.
