A very grainy capture in the dark...
July 1st Canada's 150th celebration
the fireworks display watched from atop Moss Rocks.
Here's the view from on top of Moss Rocks
a couple of blocks north of The Humble Bungalow.
The white condo building in the middle at the top was Mom's building.
I still have difficulty thinking that Mom has gone...
I see her in my daily round
and can still hear her voice...
My current book stack...
I picked up The Perfume Garden by Kate Lord Brown and sat for a few leisurely hours and have read the first 22 chapters... I do not want to stop reading!
Have you heard of the Cut Loose line of clothes?
I have tried on quite a few of their clothes over the years as I like their designs.
Many of their garments swamp my short stature...
I suppose they are designed for a taller woman.
Persistence over the years paid off and I have found a couple of Cut Loose things that I love and wear in the summer.
A simple dress with a texture that minimizes bumps and wobbly bits.
The dress dips in the front and there is a pocket on one side.
The pocket is large enough for a wallet or a cellphone.
The back detail also dips
I wear this with a pair of black footless capri tights and sandals.
I purchased this top in the US at Roche Harbour several summers ago.
It is long enough to wear with yoga pants or leggings.
Another favourite that gets a lot of wear.
I tend to wear looser clothing in hotter weather.
These two items get worn a lot and they wash up easily and hang to dry.
(Happy 4th of July to our neighbours to the south!)
My newest knitting project is a chunky weight white and grey mix yarn blanket.
It is a standard "dishcloth" pattern using two strands of yarn and a size 10mm circular needle with a 60 inch wire.
a fragrant pink rose that continues to delight.
She is a repeat bloomer and a reliable and hardy climber.
Hope your week is off to a great start.
