Daily Color: “Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.” –Sam Keen

Change is in the air.

We took our son back to college earlier this week, so I had plenty of car-knitting time to work on this:

Today my husband, who works in a school district, went back to work after a lovely summer off.

And today is muggy and cloudy, hot when the sun breaks through, but storms and and cooler weather are coming later, so I'm wearing a summer scarf knit from hemp, cotton, and rayon.

But finally the tomatoes are coming in! Last night's summer supper: local corn, and gazpacho made from tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and parsley from my garden.
