Stretch out those Dog Days… 2

How has August raced half-way through?! This is the good part of summer for me and I hope you’re enjoying it too.

It is 93 right now, cooler in this old house. Days are flipping off the calendar, too Fast:

  • Zucchini every day, blueberries , sugar pod peas and cherry tomatoes to pick
  • Evenings knitting with John Merriman European History lectures (free!)
  • Daily Arsenic Hour*- well, ~4pm, time to cool off with smoothies. *Named from when toddlers got cranky. 🙂
  • Juggling laundry, quilting, web sites, data bases, cooking, deadheading, prepping for family visit…
  • Auditioning wedding flowers, “sunset colors” for next summer- good friends. 🙂

NYT’s- Are You Too Busy?

Am I too busy? Are you too busy? Feeling a bit like a hamster, maybe too hot? 🙂  Take care, slow down, keep cool, try to savor the warmth, pumpkins will be here before we know it.



  1. Had a wonderful tomato bread salad tonight – the essence of high summer. I am not ready for pumpkins – the lingering days of summer are too wonderful to let go.
