How wonderful to share your joy of journaling. Hopefully, your nieces will continue the habit throughout their lives.
Thank you! We had morning chill, unusual this time of year, and it was a lovely day. Hope you enjoyed your day to the fullest!
Your quilt is beautiful! Maybe I don't understand the amount of work involved, but it does not look like an insurmountable problem. I would set aside the two purple pieces and remake (or reuse) them on the yellow ground. The project is very near completion, but then, I really don't know what is involved. Stitch on! It's all part of the process of the creation of handwork.

As soon as my work day is over my weekend starts! Yay! Years ago (1976) I spent nearly the full day in the Textile Museum. I still remember the red embroidered fabric that hug in the front hallway. I think it was Moroccan. Hope you enjoyed your day at the museum!

I enjoyed reading your list and your "h" attributes. I'm still practicing my handwriting and hope it will improve as yours did.
I love a collage of the month and the explanation of daily photos. You show a life well lived.
I'm all about summer, although we have little to no humidity. It's 102 today. I love it and I know how to stay cool.
There are days it is so hard to keep my heart from becoming heavy and hopeless, but it is seeing how many people respond in positive ways, trying to keep dialog open, hearts open, and full of love, that creates the hope we need to go on.

Thank you for sharing a link to the exhibit. I enjoyed looking through the photographs. Museum gives shops are the best places to find special treasures.
The hibiscus is so vibrate and lovely!
By seeing your method of list making I realize some of my tasks would be best remembered if I but wrote them down! Even the day to day things would be done and not piled up at the end of the week. Thanks for the inspiration!
I like the duel images of bright summer color and softer watercolors. The strawberry moon was a wonderful sight in our neck of the woods.
You have some things on your list I hadn't considered and #9 is a great idea as I often watch baseball without the sound on. Mostly, I listen to books, but I read at least one book a month as I love the act of reading, turning a page, feeling the heft of the book.
You've been busy and having a good time with family and friends, which is a wonderful part of summer. Thank you for checking in and telling us about the happenings in your life. It's great to hear your doing well and enjoying life!

Your moments create a nice memory of a months time. One more thing to envy about the iPhone is the way it captures an album of photos. I know of no comparable app for the Android.

Quiet, relaxing, productive weekends are the best. Glad you were able to fill the tire and have it fixed, without it causing problems for your day. The card is lovely!
You describe the sounds of summer and the a peaceful day so beautifully. My holiday weekend was extended by a day and it was the best day of all!
Beautiful watercolor! My favorite podcasts are the New Yorker Radio Hour and This American Life, but I listen to dozens of podcasts and I'm always looking for something new.
My very favorite is lemon meringue. My mother made the best I've ever had. Everything on your list sounds delicious!

I love flower gardens, but we only grow vegetables. I am the harvester, my husband the gardener. Clematis is one of my favorites as the color is so spectacular.

I enjoy hearing of your adventures in learning and the minutia of your day. Thank you!
I trust the workshop was worth every minute. Glad today's story had a happy ending!
I don't consider myself a procrastinator, I just get around to things when I can.
Stories are so important in our lives and you have some great stories of your mother. I enjoyed reading and thank you for sharing them!
