Summer Dance

Summer arrived in Portland today, a little late, but much appreciated. We had sun from all day. It actually reached 80° by this afternoon. The light and warmth gives me so much energy. I accomplished so much today. I did some more planting in my veggie garden. I took Scooter on two long walks. I got my fiber sketch done early today

This afternoon, we went to the farmer’s market.

Cherries and berries were in abundance.

I love the shapes of bread and pastries.

I bought two of those rhubarb/strawberry tarts in the upper right corner.

Tonight, I made a big dent in ironing my linen summer clothes. I love linen in the summer, but it is labor intensive. I also decided to do some beading on my twelve by twelve piece. It didn’t feel finished.

Tomorrow, I am getting my summer cut and color.

    What I wouldn’t give for an 80 degree day and some RAIN. Here in NC it’s been 95-100 degrees every day for the past week or two, and no rain except a brief 2 minute sprinkle yesterday. Not good weather for growing tomatoes, cucumbers, or really anything to speak of.
