Sunday Sevens is a blog series created by Natalie at Threads and Bobbins. It’s a weekly series featuring seven photos from the past week. Here’s mine for this week:
Our midterm break in Marbella started with a cracker of a storm. Oblivious to what was approaching across the skies, we ventured out for an early evening drink in the nearby poolside bar, it looked a little grey overhead. As the minutes ticked by it got more and more sultry. The first few big spots of rain came down so we moved indoors to shelter. Then it really lashed down. After about an hour, as the iPad was running low on battery and we knew our time with the boys was limited, the decision was taken to pull up our hoods and make a run for it. We ran uphill against the current of the river running downhill towards us and made it to our apartment where we stood under the cover of our balcony roof and admired the lightning show overhead. It was exhilarating and just a little bit scary.
The following day was equally sultry and damp but not quite as theatrical.
So if it’s wet, there’s nothing better to do than stay indoors and crochet, right? (My Attic 24 Cosy Stripe Blanket WIP has long needed some attention, so it got plenty!)
Then the sun came out again, so crochet on the balcony (while smaller members of the family were entertained at the kids’ club) was just the ticket.
If you’ve had a midterm break recently I hope it’s been a good one for you. Thanks for stopping by, and thank you to everyone who’s taken the time to like or comment on my posts, it’s really lovely to hear from you. 🙂
