mostly afternoons and evenings

Time has passed both slow and fast in 2020, it’s late August already and I can hardly believe it. I don’t have adequate words for most of the emotions and feelings around any of it either, but I know for sure at least once a day I sigh wtf.

Just sharing some small things that have been appreciated and wonderful.

The night studio and an old magnifying light of my dads.

A bias binding foot for my sewing machine.

Sunsets.

Silhouettes.

An otherworldly accident shot of the porch rail during a rainstorm, when I almost slipped off the top step trying to capture the soft rumbles and drips.

Jam.

3 matching skeins.

Curbside pickup from our favorite bubble tea place and the 2x double boba option they offer when ordering online.

In bloom

It’s getting warmer and when the funny orange plant I wintered upstairs in my little sunlit studio blooms indoors, it’s time for it to move out. There’s a fussy porch collection starting ..I’m still not great at this..

A peek over the porch rail, 💜 kinda shy blooms, photo bombed by a cluster of casual oak leaves, step off the wandering path, past the dandilions, past the fairy ring, over to the rhubarb patch to find it’s gone to seed in the blink of an eye! Although, I must admit, I still prefer these self-sufficient types, doing whatever they want, whenever they want, with no me required.
