5 days till sister & i meet up in seattle, then climb aboard our chariot, and drive about 90 miles north bound for our nest on lummi island, which. i just found out rhymes, not with roomy as i thought, but with yummy.
finishing up with last minute STITCH*BOOKERY tasks. i’m editing my very last video, and tying up loose ends. class launches 2 days after i return from puget sound and i will be ready to roll! what a joy it’s been to sew the summer away making books and wading in scraps.
we’ve had a sweltering week, but today it was a cool 89 degrees. i’m giving the garden a deep soak before i go.
it will get watered by the pet sitters while i’m gone, but i’ll feel better knowing it got one last long drink. i remember the days when i worked at a year-round school and did my traveling in the spring & fall. i do miss that off-season travel. less to worry about when the weather isn’t scorching hot.
my little oak out back had her skirts raised and now i have a beautiful view of the hills again.
i’ve been giving my binoculars a work out scanning the houses that dot the hillsides. how i wish i had a good travel pair of binocs. if you have some you’ll have to let me know.
i enjoy early mornings and evenings out back.
i started the netflix series “anne with an e”. a new adaptation of anne of green gables. the scenery on prince edward island, where the series takes place, is stunning. the series is just fantastic. haven’t enjoyed a series this much since the durrells in corfu. crossing my fingers that anne has a 2nd season. naturally i’m curious about prince edward island. if you’ve been, i’ll need to know!
as usual a hodge podge post with all the news that’s fit to print! just felt like taking a break from “work” to send a dispatch out into the world.
hope you’re doing something good. see you soon!
