In the middle of summer:
::The Buddha garden has been in recovery mode all season long due to hail damage -- there are no vegetables or tomatoes ripening or even forming yet. However, because it's a cherished labor of love, I am willing to go the extra mile by 1) waiting longer and 2) planting more seeds. The waxing moon in watery Scorpio makes the next few days beneficial for seed sowing and I want to tap into those unseen forces.
::A ballband dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knitting in the works -- the Peaches & Creme pattern is a favorite, just enough stitch variation to keep you on your toes. The soft and lofty Bernat Gloucester cotton yarns were a gift and are a pleasure to work with.
::I didn't know an asparagus fern would bloom in our climate. But she did, and magnificently so. Hundreds of tiny blossoms, I feel like I should make a flower essence.
::The prompt for Journal52 Week21 was top 10 lists. Painting and wiping the page with layers of tan and brown resulted in a wood grain look. I love the way this journal is starting to feel with its pages all thick and wrinkled and warped.
::The girl with moon paintings above the little vase was my first full-moon art ritual -- painted itty canvasses, one for each of 13 moons.
::We decorated little jars with scrap papers and washi tape and then filled them with flowers. Our fourth grandchild was born just this week so these three bright spirits have a new baby-boy-cousin.
::There are and will be miracles.
