It’s TuSAL time à See the sidebar.
Yesterday on the way home from work I could tell there had been some heavy rain, but the downtown market was set up under tents so I stopped to see if they had some veggies. They have all kinds of things – baked goods, passed – jewelry, passed several – ah, there they were – veggies, stopped. Then it started to sprinkle…then rain…then downpour! The kind folks at the veggie stands let several of us park ourselves under their tents until it slacked off some. Do you know what this melon is? I’d never noticed it before, but the kind lady was giving samples and it is really good! I got these things and quickly made my way to the car. Think I’ll be sure to check the sky before I stop next time!
Recently I’ve been spending some stitching time with Mary Gibson. She’s been sitting in the WIP stack since January, so it’s time for her to have a little love since I enjoy her so much! If you want to see the progress, click above.
Have I told you that when DS (dear son) visits we have been watching Battlestar Galactica? Well, we finished the entire series the last time he was here. Next we’ve decided to watch Breaking Bad. It’s a series that is still on, but there are several seasons on NetFlix. On my own, I watched Mad Men up to this current season. The bad part is, I hate to stop once it’s started. I can refrain for a week, but if I watch one, it’s on!
Outside the window at the doctor’s office, there were a couple of bird feeders. I used to keep hummingbird feeders, but it seemed more and more the juice would sour in a day or two, so I stopped. In the winter, I would keep wild birdseed, but that declined as well. After seeing the seed sock covered with what I call Yellow Finches (actually they’re Goldfinch), I decided to get one. The very next day I saw what I presume to be a female enjoying her snack with the mister sitting on another stake keeping an eye out. Oh, and the hummingbirds – they’re enjoying the red hibiscus (not in this photo) that are still blooming – those that the weed eater didn’t get!
Thanks for stopping by, today and always. I appreciate your thoughts and comments! I hope everyone has a great, stitch weekend, and that you get some much needed rain.
I'm grateful for raindrops !
and Happy Stitching
