I snapped this photo in May at a local greenhouse and waited for the Fourth of July to share it. How was your holiday? We had a quiet celebration with friends. Yesterday morning found me in the kitchen slicing up vegetables, preparing a rice salad and peeling corn on the cob. By lunchtime, the bulk of my work was done. Even though dark clouds threatened a rain shower, the sun made its appearance and we had fun sitting outside at the patio catching up, sharing stories. We've known each other for ten years. Our gatherings are sporadic but each time we gather the distance, time dissolves and we laugh, joke, reconnect.
Yesterday felt like Saturday and today feels like Sunday, because of a holiday in the middle of the week. I find myself giddy from thinking "oh, I have the weekend yet to come!". Almost like discovering paper money forgotten in a pant's pocket. Don't you love when that happens?
My studio room is complete for now. Using what I had already in this house makes the space homey and special. Once you are on a path of thriftiness, it never truly leaves your way of life, plus I have many memories invested in my belongings. Rummaging through closets and shelves to collect items for the room to decorate was fun.
Since I have a few ears of corn left over and a partial vegetable tray, I think a quickly whipped up chicken salad would make a meal. (you can read that as Karen is not cooking today). I'll pull out my knitting and listen to a few podcasts to pass the time this afternoon.
Have a great weekend!!!
