Just realized I hadn’t blogged! D’uh!

Busy day yesterday, although I didn’t get as much done as I hoped. Dashed out in the middle of the day to go over the bridge (Cape Codders understand the impact of that, while others are, like, ‘huh,so what?’) and get shoes for Saturday’s Mermaid Ball. Found a pair (on sale) that I like, are comfortable, and will go with lots of stuff. Taupe wedges with a silver buckle. Also got a pair of jeans on sale at LL Bean.

The tomatoes from the garden are exquisite. Just fantastic. I look forward to growing them again — the Principa Borghese are the ones that have been ready the past few days — yummy! And we had a hummingbird on the deck yesterday — I’ve never been that close to a real one without being separated by glass. Fascinating.

Got half of the shawl for Saturday’s dress stitched; will do the other half today, I hope. I like to sew it in natural light, and I hem by hand, so it takes awhile. Tessa helped. She’s fascinated by the whole process. Iris and Violet are used to the days when I sewed a lot, so it’s no big deal to them. The shawl looks like undulating water, in shades of blue and teal, with silver threads shot through.

Got some reading and research in, and some freelance work. This morning, overslept, then took a walk instead of driving to errands (since my hip hurt from yesterday’s drive), got some more work done, got nail polish that matches the shawl. I worked with students, am getting ready to touch up my hair, and then will work on the ghostwriting project into tonight — I’d like to finish it up. I’d also like to get another work out in this afternoon or evening — I’ve been slack on those this summer, and it’s taken a toll.

If you haven’t visited the Mermaid Ball site, hop on over here. It’s pretty darned cool!
