I Like #126

Well I'm super late to the party this week, but I suppose better late than never!  It's hot and muggy here but that's what summer's for I suppose.

1.  I like quilting!  The air conditioner in my studio (a metal building) went out and it's roasting hot out there, but I've still been making progress on my quilting.  I get pretty quickly drenched in sweat, but as long as I wear a bandanna, I don't typically drip on the quilt.  Hopefully the air conditioner situation will be resolved within the next couple of weeks.  Keep your fingers crossed!


2.  I love hiking!  My friend Linda and I went down to the Wichita Wildlife Refuge last weekend to go hiking.  We hiked a new-to-me trail in the Charon Gardens area that was just exquisite even though it was a fairly warm day.  Really fabulous rocks and scenery.  We saw several Oklahoma collared lizards-  they are so beautiful, an intense bright turquoise with gold heads.  I put my phone away for most of the day, but I did get a couple of pictures.  We had two bison encounters-  One with this big guy who was just wandering right down the road at us- I had to back up several hundred yards with the car until I could find a place to pull out far enough that I wouldn't be in his way  (I took the picture from inside the parked car).  Then there was a whole herd of bison right on the hiking trail-  we detoured off the trail quite a ways to make sure not to disturb them.  In spite of waking up the next day with a million itchy bug bites (I'm praying they were chiggers from the hike and not something living in my house) we had a really lovely day.




2.  Blue got a new collar!  All he'd had before was the blue one he had from the shelter, and it was a pretty color but very plain and getting very faded.  I got him this cool personalized southwestern one from etsy. 



And Benley is a napping doofus.


Just a short list this week- no new flowers (everything is looking a bit wilty and sad), but goodness all the same.  Hang in there through the heat of the summer and click over to LeeAnna's for more things to like!
