I dreamed last night that I was selecting beautiful art supplies for a class that I was taking: a brass pencil sharpener, fancy pens and pencils, metal rulers, and thick paper. I kind of love that my Pintrest boards are showing up in my subconscious. It makes for a very pleasant night's sleep.
A massive thunderstorm just blew in and it was such a relief to sit on the porch swing and feel the wind and a little bit of the rain cooling down the scorching air. It was so hot yesterday and today (109 degrees F according to our van). I was able to test the suitability of one of my linen skirts in this heat, and I am so pleased at how breathable it was. I always wear skirts (this is the first year in over twelve years I have owned a pair of shorts) in hot weather, but they are normally made of stretchy knit fabric and I just didn't realize how bad they were for high temperatures.
The field of wheat across from our house is nearly ready to be harvested. I took a few minutes to take pictures before that happens... it is a sight to behold.
