Midsummer...






 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.

Oh, I would trade your wheat fields for my grass field! We are all terribly sneezey and wheezy, thank goodness harvest has started. Linen sounds lovely, mine are all knit and yes blah it is hot!
