Family was in town Saturday, so in the morning I set off to visit the fabric store and then acquire groceries and beverages to feed everyone.

One of the things I'll miss when I move away from here is the local fabric store, Stonemountain & Daughter. Most fabric stores make me want to spit in disgust, or they're specialized for quilting and don't carry any other, practical, workaday fabrics. Not so with Stonemountain. I was able to choose among multiple different kinds of pillow ticking, and they have an extensive selection of twills and denims.

Saturday afternoon was devoted to cooking and a brief introduction to sailing for my Mom, [personal profile] slydevil, and [personal profile] sytharin. I fed everyone pizza, salad, and daffodil cake, taking advantage of all the wonderful things getting ripe in RAC's garden these days.

Sunday morning, [personal profile] scrottie and I went over to the BAP to assess the state of the algae. It was thick enough that I proposed to S that we devote our time and energy to weed-clearing instead of paddling the plastic sit-on-top kayaks. Let me tell you, that was an adventure. I wasn't sure about how much we'd be able to accomplish, but I was somewhat optimistic. Altogether, we managed to clear a narrow launching/landing channel right next to the dock, and started to open up a narrow channel out to the open space created by the waterskiing boats. Very, very few people are visiting the boathouse and trying to get out on the water these days. I have no idea how things are going to progress or when there will be a chance of being able to row again.

In the afternoon, we came home, had a late lunch, and I tackled my next sewing project, combining two old down pillows into one new, fatter down pillow. The first night of sleeping on it was HEAVENLY.

I have today and tomorrow to gear up for fieldwork. It's going to be a crazy week. There's a wildfire close to the field station, so who knows what will happen.
