Like a Blister in the Sun

Burned Knees


How is it that a hot day in the bleachers watching my former charge A__ graduate and listening to this lady resulted in no visible effect on my legs' Seattle tan, with the exception of two burned knees?

It's been a loooong couple of weeks. Fun, but loooong. Must recuperate through knitting (and/or napping)!

p.s. Note that the skirt above is one of the two cotton skirts that I made earlier this spring, and I wore the second one to the graduation. I love the pattern--it's Amy Butler's Barcelona Skirt, the plain A-line version. It does cover the knees while sitting, which is the other baffling part of having two burned knees.

Those burns are so bizarre--even for a paste-y white chick!

The husband burned his shins once. It's hard to buy into all that mushy lovey crap at a couples' only resort when your husband is walking like Frankenstein! Get some arnica gel . . . it works wonders!
