Hazy Lazy Summer Days

Do-Something-Everyday, July 24, 2016.

The temperatures have been hitting the 90s for several days now and this hot weather is expected to continue unabated this week. While humans have been wilting and the competition between the birds at the bird bath has been fierce, the summer flowers have been blooming brightly and cheerfully. It is the season for day lilies and Rose of Sharon in my backyard. Surprisingly, there was this one lonely magnolia blooming in the middle of summer!

 











On Friday, I made this cut paper art to celebrate the full moon that occurred the previous Tuesday. The July moon is a special event in some of the Eastern religious traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. Known as Guru Poornima, it is a day for honoring gurus (teachers).


On Saturday, we took a car trip to the Amish country, a 2 1/2 hour drive from where I live. We went to a furniture shop and saw some very lovely handmade furniture though we did not get what we were looking for. Then we went to indoors farmer's market at Bird-in-Hand (yes, that is the name of the town) which was rather meager on fresh produce but had booths filled with packaged food and handmade crafts.


On Sunday, as I finished cooking dinner I noticed that the two dishes that I made to accompany the rotis were matched in color (red and green)!


Thanks for visiting.
