Hot Summer Days

Kate pieced all weekend on her Sprocket project. It is going to be a big quilt.

Brooke put John on the plane for Alaska early Saturday morning and then headed for Red Lodge since the weather forecast was for the mid 90s. It is usually 10 degrees cooler at Red Lodge than in Billings, at least that's what we tell ourselves. Brooke got out her eternal applique project and put it on the design wall. And admired it but did not work on it. There was a little housework to do as we are having company a couple of times in July.

John called from Juneau to say he missed the small airplane out to his fishing rendezvous but was going out on "Air Chuck". Brooke asked when he was leaving on "Air Chuck" and John said as soon as Chuck finishes his sandwich.

Every spring John digs holes in the rocky, rocky ground at Red Lodge for hostas or daffodils or water iris. This spring it was perennial sunflowers, more hostas and some salvia. After all the digging is over, Brooke always promises that she won't ask John to dig anymore holes but she forgets in January when the seed catalogs come. These Oriental Poppies were planted a long time ago and bloom the last part of June at our altitude.

Stay cool!
