All of a sudden summer seems possible. A sail sloop, the first for the season tacked its way into the harbour while we sat on the back deck and admired the view. They gave us a show by taking down the mainsail right in front of the house, it flapped in the wind and the sound was music to our ears, a true song of summer!
The rhubarb has already gone to seed and that might be normal for this time of year but I just seem to be behind in my thinking. Maybe we had so much rain this spring that I’m finding it difficult to catch up.
I had two classy guys sticking the labels on the bags. Hubby in the back with my bro-in-law Terry. Cheap labour...works for wine and chocolate.
She has inspired me to begin mental preparation for the project I have in mind. I bought a canvas at Michael's this past week and previously bought all new brushes. The oil paints I had moons ago are still fresh and soft in their tubes. I plan to paint something for the shop along the hooking theme to hang over the mantel in the new addition. Probably two friends hooking. I used to paint and remember the smell of the oils, it will be like a trip down memory lane to a childhood home. I have no expectations so I shouldn't be disappointed so that only leaves room for surprise.
It was fun having company and they cooked and washed dishes. Those are the kind of house guests to have so I asked when they planned on coming back!
