|My yellow irises opened this week!|
Well, I still sort of feel that way come early June. Sure, there are things to be done, but they can wait a bit. This is the time we longed for back in January, February, and March. No more heavy coats, no navigating snowstorms. We move about the world more freely and less encumbered. And now it's here!
Not much sewing has been happening this week, except for piecing together a quilt backing. But when I'm not working part-time Job #1...
|(Working from home, pants are optional.)|
I haven't been able to get the audio version for this book from the library, so I am just reading, reading, reading. It's is a thick novel, and I am not a speed reader, just enjoying the journey page by page. After that, only five more books to go! :P
In a way, I miss being able to multitask, i.e., sewing while listening to the audiobook, but then again not. There is surely nothing wrong with sitting on the deck with a really good book in the glorious month of June.
Of course, it's not all sitting on my duff. I walk a few miles every day around the neighborhood. It seems the least I can do for exercise, but I enjoy it especially this time of year, with the birds and blooms, fresh smells on the breeze, the ever changing sky.
I've never been much of a gamer. I've never won a game of Scramble with Friends with my daughter yet, either. (That's the sum total of all the games I play: Two.) I'm getting better, though, and I believe that day will come.
We had a family get together on Memorial Day, also to celebrate my dad's 82nd birthday. Here are the siblings and I and Dad.
|L-R: Darrell, Me, Dad, Nita, Russ|
Darrell and Russ entertained a request by Dad to play Galveston by Glen Campbell. They did mighty fine.
What about you? How are you enjoying the first bit of summer when you're not sewing?
