seems i am gathering a collection of garden “sun” hats. oh, how i wish hats were still in vogue like days of old! i would be all over that statement fashion, not only the hats but the hat boxes...oh yes, how fun to get dress to go out. a hat, hand bag and shoes to match!
decided to bring in a few flowers today before they are gone with the fleeting summer season.
the first rose i picked by holding the rose bud had a big bee inside enjoying it’s morning sweetness. before i knew it the bee was in my cupped hand and as mad as hornet. i shook my hand and the bee flew out only to fly into my face and then get caught in my “white” hair. oh their was a dance being done in the garden by this white haired women, but i managed to escape from being stung. note to self, look before cupping rose buds with hand...ahem!
i have had few days this summer to hang quilts on the line and have missed this summer ritual. today i have gotten one quilt on the line and plan to spend some time on the swing knitting and gazing at the quilt drying on the line.
i plan to move this labor day slowly, doing a few “homey” things, get ready slowly for the work week, knit a lot, and prepare a dinner that it straight out of the 50’s.
pot roast, mash potatoes, carrots, peas and homemade gravy!
