Greetings from hot and steamy Connecticut! We have had 4 small tornadoes here since July 1. Nobody hurt (thank goodness) but lots of damage and ancient trees falling over.
We were traveling around Massachusetts the other day and stopped into a fabric store that I like very much. It has a wonderful ambiance and feels like fabric stores of yore. I purchased a some fat quarters and a long quarter. How delightful to see how it was bagged. Look at this: a charming fabric bag! When I exclaimed delight, the salesperson said, "to let the fabric breathe."
What remains of the Quoketaug Hill house built by Elias Brown in Old Mystic Village, CT, is a ghost of times gone by and always makes me stop and look. Once a palatial summer home it was ravaged by fire in 1924 and has basically stayed like this ever since. It is so beautiful just as it stands...
Bike racks are appearing everywhere these days and that's so great to see. Even downtown Mystic has provided bikers with stands...near one of my favorite bookstores in the world.
Meanwhile I have to say that I am rather perturbed. My phone is no longer a phone! I caved in and upgraded my flip phone to a smartphone. It is fantastic except it is not exactly a phone...it is a computer... that is now attached to the end of my arm. Welcome to the world of texting. What was I thinking? And to make my life just a tad more complicated, I chose an android phone when I have been using an iPad for years and have to learn new navigation. Technology is great but it is not necessarily universal in how it works.
Making LOTS of art and art projects. Thankfully, staying cool and creative with the help of air conditioning. How is your summer going? Are you having extreme weather? Ah, to be young again and enjoy the summer with abandon!
enjoy the day!
