The Bluest Skies...

There is a very old television program (this really dates me now) I believe was in the late 60's, called "Here Come the Brides" (based on a true story) and the theme song was "The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle....." Well, today was one of those days. Since we are only 55 short miles from Seattle, I think I can appropriate the song lyrics for Lacey too.....here's proof:
This is an actual unretouched photo taken just moments ago in my front yard, isn't this an incredible blue???. It has been an absolutely gorgeous late summer day...warm, with just a hint of fall crispness in the air. It was wonderful!!

Life is a little less hectic this weekend compared to last weekend, and we are all settling into sort of a routine around here.

I'm a little closer to finishing Perennial Garden by The Drawn Thread, and have finished the flower border. I discovered when I went to finish up the inside white vine that I had messed up by one thread on one whole side, so it needs to be frogged and restitched, or it will look lopsided. I am guessing it is another couple hours of stitching that I hadn't planned on. Oh well. Thank goodness I am not on any deadlines just now!!!

That is an incredible blue! When I see a blue like that, I hate to say it, but it reminds me of winter. We don't get too many cloudless blue skies in summer, but in the winter, we get plenty. A sky like that means it's bitter cold outside, but they are beautiful to look at. :)

The sky here has been gloriously clear and blue the last few days. I find myself going outside just to glory in the absolutely perfect temperature, gorgeous colors, and earthy smells of my yard. :D Wish we could bottle days like this!
