We are having gorgeous summer weather in the islands. The water at the beach is finally bearable for swimming, even pleasant (if refreshing) on a hot afternoon. So our thoughts and plans move ahead of us, season by season. Today was the annual cleaning of chimneys, readying woodstoves for winter.


I loved hearing about everyone’s summer adventures, wild and tame. I hope Amy J. enjoys summer knitting for a cozy winter. So many thanks to everyone for reading and taking time to comment. Perhaps, like chimney cleaning, this will be a regular occurrence.
