I Like Thursday is a day to appreciate the good things in the world.
The heat wave that has been plaguing us and most of the country has passed and we have had a few days of tolerable weather. The garden is full of weeds and some of the plants have literally burnt but hopefully the worst of summer is behind us.
It's nice to be able to sit outside and watch the butterflies visit the garden. We do miss our butterfly bushes this year. One had to be taken down because it had self-sowed too close to our rhododendrun and one had an ant nest living in it. My friend Linda and I are going to purchase some this fall to add to our gardens. I found an interesting one that is tri-color. If you have this one or know anything about it, could you let me know ?
The good news is that there are lots of fresh crops of tomatoes, watermelon, and corn in now. I've been loving watermelon the last few weeks. It's just so refreshing in the heat.
I finished one little sewing piece this past weekend and am busily binding another quilt and doing some small embroidery pieces. I've done a lot more writing for the Suffrage Centennial and even
cleaned straightened my sewing room.
What have you been occupying yourself with during the heat waves?
Have a great week and be sure to visit LeeAnna for more positive posts.
