Every day this week was over 100 degrees. This is late afternoon, starting to cool down.
I've been working on a Christmas stocking. Seems kind of crazy in this heat wave! This one is for a young man soon to be married. Years ago I made the young bride-to-be and her family each a stocking. She was just a girl then. It's hard to believe she is so grown! I used to make these stockings a lot back then, but that is a story for another day.
The sun sure catches this sap on the apricot tree. It glistens amber in the mid-day heat.
Today, over at Jude's she had a little game looking for rainbows, space or order...looking.
Today, upon walking into a friend's home, I spied this coaster made by a grandchild. It made me think how in all my years with young children, their use of rainbows in their art has been universal. What is it about these colors, in specific order and shape that pulls children in time after time? What is that pulls adults towards this symbol? What do you think?
