This has been one. hot. summer.  Right now smoke from fires burning on the Washington State/Canada border is blowing up our way due to Southwest winds.  It’s an acrid, doused campfire smell and hazy even when just looking across the street.

Oh yeah.  I’m done.  Bring me a nice serving of September.

  1. I see a gremlin below the center, hunching in the trough of the curve of rocks.

    Yesterday a commenter mentioned smelling the smoke of those forest fires all the way over in central Colorado.

  5. So, Teresa, you paid your old alma mater a visit? I used to run a kitchen at Carey Hall at UBC for 7 years. And–to touch base with your midwest farm–I also was in summer stock theatre at Okoboji, Iowa for two summers (much younger then). So, fingers crossed for you, tornado-wise. And thank you for your visit(s)!


  6. …thank you Paula for coming by and boosting my day

  8. Your painting definitely evokes hot and forest fires! Hope you and those in your area are okay except for the smoke. When I was in Vancouver in July, we had a few horribly smokey days, too. So many of my friends in the Pacific Northwest have had scary days and skies.

  9. Oh yes, Andrew DO send it wending up this way. But you know, when the Southern USA is tasked with having to keep Canada cool, you know something is amiss with our climate. thank you for commenting today!

  10. You and I both love handmade quilts! There is such love in them, isn’t there–and what can be cozier on those (bring ’em on) nice frosty Autumnal nights. Thank you many times, Laura.

  12. I was feel like your painting last week – way too hot down here. There’s a cooling trend down here in the south, hopefully it starts making its way up to you.
