A Wonderful Summer thus Far!

The last month has been glorious with perfect summer moments! Like doing yoga outside under a large canopy of maple leaves on the Majestic Lawn Park in Corner Brook,in front of God and everyone, without feeling self-conscious even with my butt in the air more than half the time, and no bugs to be seen or felt, just blue skies and warm air and the feeling that all was right for the moment.
Like being grateful that yoga has come into my life at just the right time. Thanks Robyn!
Like being a part of the first Farmer's Market in Corner Brook. It has been really satisfying to see people come together and celebrate hand-made products and locally grown plants and produce. I can hardly believe how sweet it is that people appreciate what I make and are as enchanted with my aprons and felted soaps as I am. Some of my friends are at the market selling their work for the very first time. Joy Burt makes awesome driftwood wreaths and Heather Smith is making beautiful beaded necklaces. The West Coast Collective, of which I am a part, is well represented and will be throughout the season.
Perfect summer moments,
Seeing tan lines on my feet while I'm in the shower.
Drinking a very cold beer in the heat of the day.
Jumping in the ice cold water of the Gillam's river.
Eating the very first peas from plants I grew from seed.
Frozen strawberry yogurt.
Progress on my unfinished house and grounds.
Spending time with my cats, Annie and Hobbes, and my dog, Moses.
Hugs and Kisses from two very special people, Sage and Malach.
Getting two portrait commissions from a repeat customer.
Beautiful sunsets, good friends, new friends, knit night and so much more.
And just think, we have a whole month more of Summer! Sun kisses to you all!
