It finally feels like Summer…

June 20th, 2012

… well, at least in the produce aisle.
Pacific Northwest summer - achieving through produce.
It has been a wet, dark, mucky and gloomy Winter Summer so far here in the Pacific Northwest.   The good side of that, is that little things like berries and the occasional sunny days are all the more magnificent. Reminding myself that our Summer is not ¾ empty, but it’s ¼ full.  And that ¾ is the perfect time to go quilt something.  Reminding myself.  Reminding myself.  Reminding my… SQUIRREL!!!

    Would gladly swap our 95+ for your cool and gloomy. The only upside I can see to our hot weather is that my fat tomatoes on the vine will finally start to turn red!

  2. The fabulous Jenelle allegedly said:

    The summer certainly comes in spurts here. Today it’s summer up in Seattle (yay!) but I hear that we will be returning to our regularly scheduled winter programing soon. ;) Some variety is good, right?

  3. The fabulous Terri in BC allegedly said:

    You should start counting summer the way we do in Canada - it started today, with the summer solstice, so there is 100% of summer left! Like you, I live on the Wet Coast and here in BC, we have had the same gloomy weather, but today dawned beautifully. Now we just have to worry about flooding.

    Jenelle and Terri - we’re all in the same glorious PNW boat today! Hugs and sunshine! I like both your ways of thinking!

  5. The fabulous kate allegedly said:

    enjoy every little bite of sunshine in that mouth-watering bowl of berries! yum! who needs sun in the PNW when they have YOU? xok

  6. The fabulous Chris allegedly said:

    99 degrees in NH today. 99 degrees and NH do not belong together.

  7. The fabulous jodi allegedly said:

    I’m in your neck of the neighborhood this week. :) this sunshine is glorious! I don’t want it to go away.

  8. The fabulous Rhonda allegedly said:

    Yummy berries!! Blueberries and ripe cantaloupe is a great combo too!! Happy Summer finally!

    As I was reading your blog, the Today Show was interruped for a “Severe Weather Update.” We’re having a heat wave and temperatures will be near 100 degrees today.

    It’s important to check on the older members of our families and friends too — make sure they’re okay and hydrated.

    Well…. 100 degrees? Isn’t that what summer is for? When it’s -10 degrees in February, maybe we can remember some of today’s heat?

    It was a glorious day yesterday and I think we’re having another today! I’ve got all my windows open and I don’t even have my robe on!

  11. The fabulous elsa allegedly said:

    or socks!

  12. The fabulous nicke allegedly said:

    lol! nice berries! ;)

  13. The fabulous AnnieO allegedly said:

    We are deep into June Gloom here in SoCalif and they are expecting it to last clear into August. Well, at least we don’t have to have air conditioning and can even wear pretty scarves and favorite jeans in the summer…

    Squirrel! Nice and brown and bearing gifts FOR YOU. What could be better.

  14. The fabulous Amber W. allegedly said:

    I get excited about my UPS guy too! Not only because he’s bringing me fabric ;)

  15. The fabulous Maryvonne allegedly said:

    here in the Netherlands also no summer in sight, it’s still cold and wet. But your blog always brings a little sunshine in my head, thank you for that!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
