It's been rainy, it's been hot, my back yard is like a jungle, and my entire city was steaming this morning.
This was the the view from the end of the driveway... I wish I could have taken more photos along the way, it was even thicker in some areas, and the air was so still and HEAVY... I could barely breathe.

Joining Kat & the Unravelers today!
I discovered last night, as I reached the point where I'd start the heel flap, that the sock I'm knitting for an adult... is not going to fit an adult. Somehow I screwed up my numbers. So I'm going to start over... literal unraveling will be happening this evening.
And, as long as I'm starting over, I'm going to take my inspiration from the latest MDK Field Guide No. 11 - Wanderlust! I'm not sure exactly how or what, but I'll have plenty of time to think about that as I'm... unraveling and rewinding. Heh.
There has been little progress except for adding to the TBR pile. Joining Lincoln in the Bardo, two books have been added to my Audible queue in the past week:
- Our Harlem: Seven Days of Cooking, Music and Soul at the Red Rooster by Marcus Samuelsson (includes a PDF with the recipes!)
- My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem
I loved listening to Marcus Samuelsson's memoir, Yes, Chef, so I thought "Our Harlem" would be a good one (plus food & drink recipes!).
"My Grandmother's Hands," is... timely right now.
Thankfully, there's been a change in the photo shoot schedule, so I don't have to rush with the kids' outfits.
I stopped at Joann's yesterday, anyway, and will have some time to test my theory... or come up with another plan!
Meanwhile, I'd recently picked up a few things for the kids at rummage sales, including this top for Malina:
AWESOME, isn't it? When I was folding the laundry load, I had an A-HA moment and realized exactly WHY this top was so awesome:
Very Alabama Chanin-esque, wouldn't you say?? I guess my subconscious is in tune. Haha!
As of 4:00 there are 4 days ahead and who knows what will happen... well, if you're in the USA, you know that fireworks will happen! I may or may not pop in, so...
Have a great weekend!
