In reverse order:
A yard invaded by tumbleweeds.
Replaced the wreath above the fireplace with some summery giants.
Sweet Teen is thrilled to have her academic letter.
Also managed to layer and baste the violet star quilt for my nephew.
I'm nearly overwhelmed with things that need to be done (and quickly), but know it's going to be hard to fit them in next week with 80 or more miles per day for Sweet Teen's music and drama "camp". The price of gas means I'm going to have to stay there while she participates because 160 miles per day will be unmanageable.--Maybe I can catch some morning "girl time" with friends who are out of school too--of course, I can also take along knitting or other handwork, and hope the smoke clears out so we can all breathe safely.
