In my last post, I pondered what June’s weather would be …Now, I know: H-O-T! I took an extra long walk this afternoon, primarily because for the past few days, it has been very h-o-t. The sky, as usual, was/is a study and my route, naturally took me to and through the park, which is just hilly enough that I can see the view from different heights…

I’ve spent most of the week attending zoom sessions with family, friends and strangers and a few hours, here and there, learning the fine art of foundation paper piecing, stitching my Confetti Quilt. The fun part of this project is selecting the fabric scraps for each block…

I started Great Circle – a title I chose for summer book bingo…I think it could fit many, many bingo squares on at least three different cards. I say that tongue-in-cheek though perhaps t’is truer than I think. I suspect I’ll know for sure once I’ve finished the 589 pages…

Great grand nephew Chris is 7 today! This photo was taken this morning and shared by his mom; his birthday breakfast wish: donuts. This evening – soon – family gathers via zoom to sing happy happy. I understand next weekend there will be a gathering to celebrate all three of my sister’s grands who have birthdays the 4th and the 10th of June.

… last week (as I took my late afternoon walk , alone and slowly, for my aching back pain was then and at times, still attention-gripping), Friday’s sky was indeed a study. I wished I had watercolors and brush to stop and play; instead, I gave thanks for my iPhone camera. I wished also to lay down on the grass and look up at the sky. Ha! Who am I kidding ? I’d probably still be there, unable to get up… still the thought appeals …

… today, the sky poured earlier.  As I pen this post, it appears that the rain is over – an invitation for a walk…

… the grass in the back yard, is overdue for a cut – I can see the blades waving, caressed (?) by a gentle breeze. Our lawn care guy had to postpone the scheduled “cut;” his dad tested positive for Covid-19 …

… leaving you with this link (from the Smithsonian ) to a very different window on the world during these times of Covid-19 … Enjoy!

…and now, I’m off for the walk before the next round of rain comes!
