Escape. Sometimes we need it. After the news of the past week, I definitely do.
Does it look like Mike is trying to escape here? This is a place we visited on our trip, in Provincetown, Mass. I've seen it called by two names: the Provincetown Causeway and the Long Point Dike. Maybe my Massachusetts friends can tell me the right one. It's very scenic and fun to walk on!
Back here at home, I like to escape the news of the world in many ways. Birdwatching is one for me. You can't see them here, but we're pretty sure there's a chickadee family hatching in the lower birdhouse in our backyard. We've been watching the parent birds go back and forth to our suet feeder and then into the birdhouse. I'm hoping to see the baby birds sometime soon.
We escaped the other day for a picnic and walk at a favorite spot where we can usually find the yellow-headed blackbirds this time of year, and they were there. The males are really beautiful, and make some very distinctive and noisy calls.
It's been great to get things planted this week. I've shared before that I'm a very small scale gardener, but enjoy the attempt at a few veggies and flowers.
We've also had some lovely rain here the last few days -
so good for a very parched Colorado.
And how about escaping into the Star Wars universe for a few hours every Friday the next few weeks? We enjoyed the first episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+ last weekend. Looking forward to the rest of the show!
And, finally, one of my favorite places to escape is into my sewing room. Here's what I've been working on the last few days. PopStar is basted and ready to quilt, plus I've been playing with a gingham tablerunner design in reds. The squares are ready to sew together - this is surprisingly simple and soooo fun!
Thanks for visiting today! Hope you're having a good week.
