It's been a bit chilly here in the Adirondacks. Ice still on the lake type of chilly.
OK, I'm exaggerating--but we've had temperatures in the 40s and 50s at night. Daytime temperatures have been in the upper 60s to low 70s.
A few years ago at Rhinebeck, I bought a shawl. A Russian hand-knit. Never wore it. I thought it was too pretty to wear.
As we were leaving for the mountains last week, for some reason, I threw the shawl into my bag.
It's been a lifesaver! OK, I'm exaggerating again. But it sure has come in handy.
It's a blanket when sitting in the chilly cabin. In the mornings, I've tossed it over my nightgown. When we go to town, it's around my shoulders. I've worn it on the dock. I've eaten ice cream in it. The shawl and I have enjoyed a few wine spritzers on the porch.
One evening, I even used it as mosquito netting!
