Are you familiar with the folk group, The Seekers, from the 1960s? We love their music, and have been listening to them again, since the news of Judith Dunham's passing this week. She was their female lead singer. I especially love this song "The Water is Wide."
I hope this video works.
This is my first time trying to add a video to a post,
and I *think* I did it successfully, lol!
We spent Friday going up to Scottsbluff, Nebraska, for Mike's brother's service. As all those times are, it was a bittersweet day, full of stories and memories. My BIL, Ron, was a truck driver all his life, and his grandson arranged to drive his casket to the cemetery on a semi truck. Some might think this strange, but for the family it was very touching.
Grandpa's last ride.
You can learn a lot about a state's geography by the local produce it's known for. In Colorado we have Palisade peaches and Olathe sweet corn, both from the Western Slope. (the western side of the Rockies.)
I have eaten both this week, but no recent pictures. From the southeastern corner of the state comes Rocky Ford melons. We have some cantaloupe and, yum, is it good!
Closer to home, I'm always attempting to grow some favorite vegetables, and have harvested a few green beans and tomatoes. Cucumbers are also growing, but for some reason this year, they look somewhat like alien life forms!
In the flower garden, little mini sunflowers are blooming! I planted the seeds in the spring, but wasn't sure what to expect. These are really small!
Since this photo was taken, they've opened even farther.
And in the sewing room... I've been making plus blocks with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month, with black prints on white for the background fabric. Unfortunately, my supply of those backgrounds has really shrunk with all the blocks I've made. Earlier this week. I found a few new ones to add to the pile.
Hot air balloons, bicycles, paper airplanes - these are fun!
Hope you're having a great week!
I'm joining in with I Like Thursday, hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color.
