If all goes well, a shawl. Twilight is my very favorite color, it awes me in the summer evenings.
It was a lot of fun. Strange how we lived in the Portland area for twenty years, but had never heard of Mill Ends park before.

The rain on the way home yesterday was wonderful. As you know, I completely agree with you on the heat. I'm reading again this summer, yes, the falling deep in…I'd forgotten.

Your pants are a map of time & love the tick-tock-clock of a bud, and the big wide stretch of all the time in the world of Soulo-o. I have been sleeping hard and deep, full of exhausting dreams. Time and space have been very strange this summer.

We finished up our road trip with a visit to the Pittock Mansion, built in 1909. A 23 room estate on the west hills of Portland. Quite a change from the Frank Lloyd Wright house! And what does your staircase look like? The sewing room. Can you imagine? The grounds... Continue reading

You're right, a full life and a heroic death- what we should all wish for.
He says thank you! What is it about this summer? The heat? Weird.

Oh, what a tragic story, I'm so sorry.

We are on a sort of road trip for Moon's birthday. His choice, because turning thirteen means you can ride in the front seat! The cake survived the trip to Oregon. It tasted good, but my cake decorating abilities are another story. The blame is being placed on the lack... Continue reading

What a lovely thought, and thank you for the link. I enjoyed traveling through his work.
It might end up quite blurry, if I don't stop making x's all over it! I refrigerated this one, too & used toothpicks on the inside, which I forgot about until we were eating it!
Yes, more open, I am liking this version of the heart much better.

That lone heart has been bugging me. I took out the blanket stitched border, replaced it with a quieter running stitch, and am now covering it in criss-crosses. I don't know . . . I used to tell Janie, when she wasn't happy with how a quilt was going, "Just... Continue reading

I love that it's cooled off! Funny to think of you in the middle of Winter…what a weird wondrous world.

That's one HOT cat, it's ears are on fire! So sorry about your sweltering. Twinkle & I planted ourselves near the fan the last days, fortunately we've cooled for the moment. Moon is thrilled there's a blue moon in his birthday month.

Limes. They helped in the weathering of the latest heat wave. K having another birthday and pie (it was worth heating the house up for). A walk through the Japanese Garden. Turtles. What is it about turtles? They are such calm sweet creatures. Last night's evening sky, that led to... Continue reading
