Summer's here...

Summer at last, long days and nights.... great light for stitching (many projects underway), knitting (yet to get going on anything) and time outdoors on the patio.

Our weather continues mild and dry.  It rained Friday night and as heavy a downpour that it was, it was a drop in the bucket of what is needed to return brown lawns to green.   There is another mini heat wave predicted for later this week through the weekend.   Summer water restrictions are in place as well.

One recent visit to the thrift store finally yielded a doughnut cutter.  They used to be a common but locally no success in finding a new one.  Gone are the days of a real department store (Woodward's and Eaton's are long gone) and the remaining larger stores carry limited product selections.  Another visit resulted in a hard cover Readers Digest cross stitch book.  It's nice to find a few treats without spending much.

In recent weeks hummingbirds visits are still infrequent.  At least one little fellow does drop in.  I've managed a couple of photos, definitely camera shy so needless to say photo quality isn't very good.

Meanwhile,enjoy your week!

I've been looking for a donut cutter also. I have one but the centre went missing years a go.
It's lucky for you that you found one.

Enjoy your summer and hummingbirds. I have tons of them here and absolutely adore them.

Congrats on your donut cutter! I finally bought one at an antique mall because they're so handy to have. I usually use the donut hole punch for little cookies.
