It is rain... lovely, cool, wet rain! A wonderful gift after the very hot and dry summer we've had. My hubby was even watering the grass this afternoon, and all of a sudden we realized it was raining!
Welcome to "I Like Thursday" hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color! Every Thursday we post about the positive things we've experienced in the last week.
I liked going to the Boulder County Farmer's Market in Longmont, Colorado, last Saturday. Of course I forgot to take any pictures of it, so had to borrow one from their website.
I enjoyed seeing all the fresh vegetables (and bought yummy tomatoes and green beans), tasting various things that people were offering (including wine!), and listening to the musicians who were performing. It is a 30 minute drive for us, but definitely worth it.
We went for an evening walk a couple of nights ago, and I liked seeing so many sunflowers blooming.
And the beautiful evening sky just before sunset.
I enjoyed bringing some of my orange marigolds and purple larkspur in for a little bouquet earlier this week. The marigolds last a long time in water, but the larkspur started dropping blossoms right away, so I had to enjoy them quickly! :)
I like participating in online Quilt Alongs, and there are so many to choose from! This week I joined in with Debbie from A Quilter's Table to work on Improv Stripes. Last year I participated in the Crosscut QAL with Debbie, so I knew I would have fun trying something new from her this year. You can see lots of examples of what people are working on at #improvstripesqal on Instagram.
I really liked this book that I just finished this week: The Secret Wisdom of the Earth by Christopher Scotton. I was so caught up in the story that I couldn't stop reading, even in the car when we were running errands Monday morning, until I finished it! It is a story about a boy (Kevin) whose family has experienced a terrible tragedy, so he and his mom go to spend the summer with his grandpa in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky. Kevin's experiences there really help him to get past his family's tragedy and to grow up.
Happy Thursday! Hope you are having a lovely week! Please be sure to check out all of the other I Like Thursday bloggers over at LeeAnna's place, every Thursday morning!
