This Collage


Seen on my walk on the street behind mine.  Douglas.

Maybe if I went out and walked more, I'd see more things.  I definitely should do it.

It's a lovely overcast day.  I've been a little envious as I read some blogs - looking at you, Joanne - and hear of cool rainy days.  Here it's been hot, little rain in sight.

Eleven straight wins for the Reds.  People are paying attention.  Conversations are happening everywhere.  No matter where they go from here, there was this shining June moment.

Happy Birthday to Me


There was a lovely little birthday cake yesterday and a tall grand guy to bring it.

Seventy-eight years old, how can I not be pleased about that?

And yes, Aaron really is that tall.  He had his sports physical yesterday and the doctor said he has more growth to come since he is still growing so quickly.  Six feet three inches now, age fifteen.

Today is the sumer solstice, and I always love that day.  It feels as if we've climbed a steep hill to get here.

Charm Pack Challenge Two


Charm Pack Challenge two.  One of these days I need to try to quilt less densely, but not today.

There is another similar pattern, Carpenter's Star, that I'd like to try.

That new Reds player - Elly De La Cruz - can run like the wind.  So many people came to the ball park last night to welcome him.  And saw a walk off win with a hit by another young player.  Last season was long, but this team is fun.

Yellow, Green, and Added Purple


Comforter knotted in black at our last church knotting.  Green backing, green binding now completed.  The patches came from a bag of fabrics gathered together by Mennonite Central Committee.  I added some of the purple because it just needed more purple.

And because I was in a binding mood, I did the binding on my latest wall hanging.  Maybe I'll show you tomorrow.  It's in the washer now.

Our skies are overcast because of the forest fires in Canada.  It is hot and dry with air quality alerts.  Tomorrow will be cooler, but no rain.  My eyes have been dry and itchy.

The Reds have a new young player called up from Triple A, tonight he will be in the starting lineup for his first big league game.  He is expected to do a lot of things well, including base running.  Fingers crossed.  A fast base runner is always exciting.
