Monday Monday

I love Mondays. They are a clean slate for a whole week of expectation. I have nothing planned for today but sewing and catching up on making the condo shine!
I plan to see the girly girls today...missing you guys!

I wish the weather had plans for rain. It is too hot and too dry for gardens and my pots on the porch. My potted rose of sharon attracted the cutest hummingbird while we were sitting at the table. It took nectar from both blooms, but nothing else on the porch looked yummy!

Have a great day and a great week.

Does this song paint a picture of summers' past?

Lazy Afternoon
It's a lazy afternoon,
And the beetle bugs are zoomin'
And the tulip trees are bloomin'
And there's not another human in view but us two.

It's a lazy afternoon,
And the farmer leaves his reapin'
In the meadow, cows are sleepin',
And the speckled trout stops leapin' up stream as we dream.

A fat, pink cloud hangs over the hill,
Unfolding like a rose;
If you hold my hand and sit real still,
You can hear the grass as it grows.

It's a hazy afternoon,
And I know a place that's quiet,
Cept for daisies runnin' riot,
And there's no one passin' by it to see;
Come spend this lazy afternoon with me.

Words and musisc by John Ltouche, and Jerome Moross

I want to know...where is the willow tree, a quilt on the ground and a glass of
sweet tea?

I am going to post more often!! Surely my life is not sooo boring?

I am in love with summer! Yes, it is hot here and suppose to get hotter later this week, but summer brings so many great veggies and things to do.

Living in North Carolina has brought veggies into my life that weren't there before even after living north, east, south and west in the USA! I fixed purple hull peas for Sunday dinner and even Bob loves them. With mashed potatoes they are the best! I went to the Carrboro Farmer's Mkt on Saturday and saw something I had never seen....plum tomatoes that looked "tiedyed"....yellow and red stripes. Next time I am getting some of those.

The Farmer's Market always has a variety of produce. This Saturday just happened to be tomato day at the market. They put together an area solely dedicated to tomato samples....needless to say we joined the line and tasted everyone!! I brought home a tiny cantelope about the size of a ball of is soo sweet you wish it was the size of a watermelon! But, the best thing I brought home was a loaf of artisan bread. It has a taste unlike any bread I have ever eaten.....sage, rosemary with small cut up potato chunks in different colors. Toasted it is amazing.

Catch you later....blessings
