In my part of it, at least - it's HOT! But the good thing about that is that everything is growing and growing and growing.
And Mr. Cutie Pie has been busy again. I had been saying (sort of complaining a little bit, maybe) that the potting bench on the patio needed to be replaced. This weekend Mr. Cutie Pie got to work and made one for me.
The really good part of the whole thing (other than the most excellent job he did) is that it was a "free" project. We had all the parts here already left over from other jobs.
I've already started putting plants on it. One thing I really like about it is that I will have room underneath to store the buckets I use to catch rain water.
Here are some of them placed hopefully under the eaves just in case we get a shower. The plants just love rainwater, so I try to collect some for them. I have this folding shutter sort of leaning against my sewing room window. It has gotten so bright outside now that it hurts my eyes when I sit at my computer or sewing machine.
Here's the view from the inside. I do so enjoy looking out at our chickens and at everything outside my window and this allows me to continue to do that - even when the sun is bright. It's all about making do with what you have, isn't it?
I've almost finished the quilt top I've been working on - just have to put on borders. I wanted to take pictures to show you early this morning, but as you can see, the sun was already bright. I kind of like the patterns the blackberry vines make on it with their shadows, don't you?
I hope you're having a terrific (I had to use spell check for that word, it just didn't look right) day!
Hugs and kisses,
