Tom had all the windows open today. Bringing the summer in. And when I was walking up the stairs in the dark tonight, I was surrounded in it. Warm and sweet, I was breathing it in. The scent of line dried sheets was spilling out of the bedrooms, into the hall as I climbed the stairs. And there was just the gentlest touch of humidity, just enough to announce a summery feeling. A breeze moving the bedroom curtain, an elixir of lake and grass, budding trees and magnolia & tulip blossoms.
I tried to regain a little order in the studio today. Folding mountains of fabric. Washing new fabric. Starting a couple of new quilts. Working with the doors open and light pouring in. The whole while, listening to moby dick. I took a break with ezra to sit in the sun this afternoon, eating goats milk ice cream (organic and delicious). I love when I have worked a long full day, and it feels like a luxury. Aaaah, summer!
