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.

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!
