After a very dry May, it has finally rained numerous times in June. In fact, the other afternoon we had not only liquid sunshine (rain) but we had some solid sunshine (hail).
It was marble sized hail and lucky it didn't last long nor harmed anything. (My hand looks so old...ugh!) Anyway, this is what happens when the earth's thirst is quenched...
My flowers in the yard have been beautiful.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time off this summer. I haven't blogged much on my blog, but I still take time just about every day reading all my favorite blogs. I am in the midst of trying to do some quilting (pictures later). I also have been combining some crocheting with beading.
The idea for these crocheted bowls came from Uncommon Threads on DIY. The blue bowl makes a nice container for the earrings I have made recently.
Tomorrow my husband and I are getting our shots for our trip to Honduras in August. I have a brother who lives in Honduras and I have never visited him. In fact, I have never been out of the country. We will be meeting another brother of mine and his daughter in Miami and together we will fiy down to visit for a week.
One trip that I will not be able to make this summer is a trip to Philadelphia to visit our son, the doctor. He is completing his 1st year of residency in emergency medicine the end of this month. His schedule does not make it feasible for my husband and I to visit. I hate not seeing him for so long.
