The Crickets Are Singing







It is not summer until the crickets sing.
~ Proverb


Summer Solstice is today.

It is the day when the light shines the longest.
The Crickets are singing so it must be summer!

It's also time for iced tea.


Mango Tea



This was in the June Texas Market subscription box.
Mango Black is from a company I wasn't familiar with.
A little research and I found out that Hello!
 is from a subscription tea box company
called My Story Tea.
(Just what I need -- another subscription box!)
I'm really enjoying the Mango Black tea iced.
There are four 1 quart pouches in the pack.
It arrived just in time for June - the official iced tea month.

It's raining and will probably rain for several days.
While it isn't a tropical storm, after Hurricane Harvey last year,
everyone is a bit nervous to have it rain and rain and rain.

Mina is keeping me company.
She is making biscuits and chewing on her favorite blanket. 

I think she is completely bored with the rain!

Wishing YOU well and much joy.

It's Not UGHust yet!



Boy, it is HOT.
It's not UGHust yet!
Yes, I hibernate because of the heat.
I get up very early, feed the kitties, take my walk.
Errands must be done early in the morning.


Avalon Diner



Fun breakfast with one my soul sisters at the Avalon Diner.
Now in a strip shopping area, but once a stand alone.

This and That





I hope you had a lovely Holiday weekend.
I always think about my Daddy.
He is buried in the National Cemetery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
When I lived in New Mexico, I would visit around Memorial Day.



Memorial Day



I have my patriotic decorations out.
They'll stay up until after the 4th of July.



Memorial Day



I do love Quirky!
The cat and owl vases are from the West Elm Fairy Tale collection.
Perfect for a cat and owl lover!


Quirky Vases


I finished knitting a shawl.
It is light weight from Lion Brand Shawl in a Ball.

And, I'm all set for my summer hibernation.
(I hibernate because of the heat.)
I have plenty of yarn! 
I found the pattern for the shawl in Knit Simple Holiday 2017 magazine.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!
