June Blooms

I'm behind in reporting on my goals.
In May, I planned to:
  1. See a movie--on June 1st we saw Dark Shadows. Rentworthy, which is perhaps more praise than it deserves. 
  2.  Read two books--read Possession by AS Byatt and Last Seen Wearing by Colin Dexter
  3. Work on Star Light Star Bright--I did. I even got the library one Friday for some stitching.
  4. 10 hours on another project--perhaps you will not be surprised to hear I did not. But I did show you my garden, right?
June found me unable to make particular plans, but I:
  1. See a movie--we're going today, Bernie or Best Exotic Marigold Hotel or Moonrise Kingdom or...
  2. Read two books--I think I found where much of my time went this month; I read over 1300 pages: Too Many Clients (Nero Wolfe), Pride and Prescience (A Mr. and Mrs. Darcy mystery, which sucked balls), The Janus Stone (Ruth Galloway mystery), and The Alienist, which was awesome.
  3. Worked on Star Light Star Bright
  4. Worked at least 10 hours on A Mind Independent and Free
Lately, though, my fingernails have been too full of dirt for stitching.

For July:
  1. See a movie 
  2. Read two books
  3. Yikes, anniversary present!!
  4. 10 hours on Star Light Star Bright
  5. 10 hours on Independent Mind
  6. Start a punch needle design
  7. Enjoy the garden!

If you do nothing else Anna, make sure you do take time to enjoy the garden!

I like that last one! Make the most of it while it's sunny.

Your garden looks fabulous. I remember when you were showing before and after photos - what a transformation!

Wow, the garden is great. We are trying to salvage a bit of ours in the 100 degree heat.

I particularly like the willow sampler. I never thought of using two frames.

The only book I recognize is The Alienist and it is one of my all time favorite books. His subsequent one not as great.
