mid August

I noticed as soon as we step out of the car, back from vacation but I hated to mention it. Yes, those are red maple leaves that have begun to fall. And I wanted a wool sweater under my raincoat when I went out for a walk today. Tomatoes are plentiful; at least it is the right weather for canning.

Quiet day here with one girl away on a summer field trip. Got my work done in plenty of time for a walk, which turned into gardening, which turned into boiling a potato for supper.

I think tonight will be a good night for some gesso.
