giving a wave and saying "Hi." I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. Just a slow week.
Saturday Son went back to the Farmer's Market, looking for raspberries or blueberries. He said what he found was way over priced. So he brought me five nice bundles of fresh parsley. I snipped the leaves from the stems and dehydrated them, giving me three pint jars of dried parsley. The apartment smelled really good while they were drying. If the herb vendor still has some the next time Son goes to the Market, I think I'll have him get more. I use parsley a lot in cooking. And home dehydrated is so much more flavorful than store bought.
Son also visited our favorite honey vendor and brought back a two-quart jar of honey to add to the food storage.. The same vendor sells pure maple syrup, so he brought home two quarts of that lovely liquid.
The weather here has turned hot and humid, although not as bad as for those living in the south. But we here in the north are summer weather wimps, so 90 degrees is miserable for us. Son went out for a while today and said it was like walking into a sauna. There are storm warnings out this evening, but so far they seem to be mostly to the north of us. We are listening to the scanner for the area where the storms are going through. They have called out their weather spotters and so far the predicted tornadoes and hail have not materialized. Hope it stays that way.
Me...I'm just hanging out in the cool of the air conditioning, coward that I am. I've got a couple of quilt tops in the works and am doing some more digital scrapbooking on my computer, working on albums for my own pleasure. Storms are predicted for the coming week and there is nothing I need to go out for, so here I stay. Seems like the sensible thing to do. Old folks tend to drop like flies in the heat and I don't plan to be among them.
