Summer is Here

Hi! Sunset on the first Friday of the Summer! There's a big breeze, almost a wind, tossing the new leaves on the ugly locust tree, as the sky now---at 8.30 PM begins to turn pink.

Not a spring day today at all, we are totally into summer now. And it is Memorial Day weekend!

 The Blue Angels roared overhead this morning as the fighter jets practiced for the big weekend airshow. We so love our private showing!

The past few nights have been too hot to sleep! Dare I take off the flannel sheets? Should the parkas and big sweaters go to the box storage place or will this be a hoax?
The cottage is looking summery now.

Mo knows something is changing!

Picnic and pineapple sewing tomorrow on the beach! Hooray!

BBQ on Sunday...

Summer is here. [I love this umbrella! My kids say it's awful...?]

Happy Memorial Day! Remembering all the brave men and women who gave their lives for our Freedom.



gone to the beach....

At the church flea f\today--I couldn't talk my friend into this darling antique yellow Wedgwood teapot! Only TWO dollars. Exceptional. She bought two pieces of the classic blue Wedgwood Jasperware instead, ho hum. I passed up beautifully embroidered pillow cases, dainty pale yellow and lavender baskets with handmade lace. Out of my budget at 10.oo. And there was an interesting collection of about ten glass flower frogs, each different. The kind with holes not pins. I liked them a lot.
