Mid August

I had a busy week. The girls came out of the woodwork seeking to refresh their living spaces. Gathering accessories, left and right, to layer the homes with something fresh and new. 

Our tomatoes and Basil are coming in like lightning. Faster than we can make Caprese salads! The flavor of fresh Mozzarella, Balsamic vinegar served on a baguette.  We eat the whole plate full every time. The flavors of summer!

We took the time to lie on the beach and paint a painting, drink a G&T, eat a Cheese Shop sandwich and take a couple of swims! 

Did I tell you about our cucumbers? Steve has already put up one batch of pickles and it looks like he is ready to cook up some more! Me, I have been eating cucumber sandwiches for lunch everyday. 

And then we have our swimming hole. Took the time to do some rock hounding along the shore. We have been blessed this summer. 

Look at these rug swatches that just came in from Dash & Albert. Jackie, the decorator, helped picked out these samples. A nice body of work! 

As I write this blog I am listening to Will Hoge & Band playing the Loco Club in Valencia Span. Recorded by Carlos Bartual Fotografo. Miss the live music. Do I miss how it was pre- covid? No, not really, maybe the freedom to travel and enjoy concerts, but I am equally happy holed up in the Holler. 

That is all I have to say!
