Summerific

 
Since our last transmission:

*All I want to do is paint green things, as evidenced by the random sketchbook page.

*July 4th visitors were delightful (and were adept at unearthing birds' nests).

*I saw the Shaker exhibit at the Farnsworth for my birthday and it was beyond words. The Farnsworth is a terrific museum (and the Wyeth Center is my favorite space). Speaking of favorite places/spaces, if you find yourself in Rockland, Maine anytime in the near future, in the name of all that is good, please go to hello hello Books/Rock City Cafe. You can thank me later.

 

Other summer things?

*I made dandelion wine and lived to tell the tale. I used a recipe from this local cookbook, but these directions are pretty close. And if you're wondering what it tastes like, to quote Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine, "I'm a fire-eater! Whoosh!"

*A baby blanket finished for a brand spankin' new niece.

*Fireworks. Because, the 4th. And summer.

That blanket you made is awesome, but OH! That newest model niece of yours takes the cake. What a cutie! You are a blessed Auntie indeed. And I "toured" hello hello Books/Rock City Cafe and was hooked as soon as I saw issues of Uppercase and Taproot magazines! However, you won't be running into me there, more's the pity. Entrenched here on the other side of the country, I am. A word of caution: don't go near the reading material after imbibing your fine wine - fire hazard, you know!
