An office mate and I walk around the building at least once a day (unless the heat is unbearable) and we walk fast and talk faster. It's a nice break and a release from our computer screens.
If only you could hear the hum, the loud drone, of the bees drinking for the nectar of this tree.I stop here every morning whilst on my walk.
My morning walks are less frenzied than the walk I take for a break. I walk at a good pace, but take the time I enjoy more of the nature around me. While morning light is quickly disappearing, the birds are in full song, with the goldfinches and house finches singing in the day, and the mourning doves cooing in closer to sunrise.
The cloudy weather has brought stunning sunrises, along with an increase in humidity. By mid-day the humidity has waned, the clouds scattered, only to increase with the heat of the day. We are graced with a quick rain shower, just enough to give us hope of more. The lightning and thunder entertain.
Sometimes I knit, sometimes I read, sometimes I'm out of the house to enjoy time with Smith or with friends. Therefore, what I don't do is write on the blog or spend much time on the computer. My works days are spent there, in front of the monster. While I miss you, my friends, I find spending time in the light of summer, more to my liking, even if it is to read or to knit. At times I think how wonderful it would be to have a smart phone, but then...
My TTL Mystery Shawl is complete, all but the blocking. In addtion, buttons will soon be attached to Chicane (remember it?) and a photo shoot for each will happen (soon). Another project may be be raised from the dead, and since I have very few WIPs, you can probably guess which. This quiet time of contemplation may have lead to its resurgence.
