Remember this old photo of my Chicken Scratch embroidery? I need to get back to this project! I love embroidery, and just never seem to do it. Maybe it is because I blog too much, and read too much, in a sitting down position...when I should be out walking and getting fresh air and sunshine. It is funny, down here in south Florida, it is the opposite of cold climates where you stay inside all winter. I suddenly realized it when I found myself making bread in the dead of this stinkin summer heat! You HAVE TO find things to do in the air conditioning!!!!! Ain't it the truth, all of you people who live in scalding hot climates??? Anyway, I hope to get busy on this embroidery again soon!
It is lightly raining outside, as I sit here on the couch on my 10 inch mini laptop looking out to the east, and along the back fence where I see a large croton, and a mixture of my "jungle" plants, including my huge numbers of Gloriosa lilies, which are still not blooming (bummer). I love to see the rain softly falling on all my plants and yard. It is so soothing to ones soul. I like the idea of it possibly (and I mean possibly) cooling down just a tad.
The first day of fall I will have a small party. When I was a teenager, I would open my bedroom windows, have candles burning in all the windowsills for the lovely smell, with music playing, and I would clean, and bring snacks and drink to my room, where I could dream and read. I remember that so well, a memory that returns each summer. So, I plan on candles, windows and doors wide open, music playing, and a clean house with the smells of Lysol wafting through the air.
I can hardly wait!! Only 3 more months to go.
