It's Friday and that means time for Random Things.
Thank you, Nancy for hosting.
I made a quick stop at Michael's early this week.
I was looking for a couple of sheets of 22 x 30 water color paper.
As I was dashing through the store on my way to the cashier, I stopped dead in my tracks.
I could not believe what I was seeing.
The FALL decorations were out.
Pumpkins and all.
It is too hot to cook.
So, I've been having a slice of wonderful rosemary/thyme bread
with black peppercorn chevre and tomatoes all from the Farmer's Market.
My Farmer's Market Meal.
Oh, my -- sinfully delicious.
I think I'm going to add some wine!
Hard to believe that the 4th of July is just around the corner.
My fingers have been itching to do a quick crochet project.
Last year I made red, white and blue placemats.
While I was cleaning out a closet,
I found a Leisure Art leaflet with holiday hot pads.
I thought the watermelon and star patterns were perfect for the summer festivities.
The watermelon was easy,
but the star has a few glitches I need to work out.
My basil was ready for picking so I made pesto yesterday.
I don't think my Japanese Maple is going to survive.
I've babied it through the long hot summers and our drought,
but it looks pretty sad this year.
I had to trim some dead branches.
I'll keep trying.
I talk to it every day.
Telling it how pretty it is and how much I'd like it to stay around.
I guess I could start playing music outside.
I wonder what it would like to hear??
The sound of rain, I bet!
Wishing YOU well and much joy.
Enjoy the weekend.
Happy Summer Solstice
