Country Life & Results of July Friday Night Sew In
A few detail pictures:
So....since it's impossible to sleep while being repeatedly buzzed by a plane, I got up. About 20 minutes later, no plane. By that time I'd decided to bake fresh muffins. Guess the plane had gone to re-supply, because it was soon back. When it was done, I made fresh New Mexico coffee, sliced a fresh fig (from Costco, not from any local tree), and took my muffin outside for breakfast. One of the things I most treasure about summer is breakfast outdoors. My makeshift table consists of an upside down galvanized tub with an ancient metal milk basket on top, with tiles on top of that. I've been looking for a discarded or used cafe table for a couple of years, but haven't found one. A table definitely falls into the "want, not a need" category, so I'll keep looking.
That bushy plant next to the table is the sweet basil I picked up at Trader Joe's for $1.99 yesterday. The basil we had from before our trip east barely survived the summer heat, despite receiving the neighbor's care.--Actually, I had told her to use it, but she didn't. I'll repot the new basil after we make our post office run.
Blessed summer days........
