1. The garden is almost completely in! There are a few tomato plants that got a late start which I will still plant. Thanks to global warming, we're getting EXTREME temperatures around here in the summer (having already reached 90 once in May, which is unheard of), so if the heat strikes tomatoes at the wrong time, they cease fruit production. So I've been staggering my tomatoes in ago, so when we get 110+ degree temperatures this summer, some of them will hopefully keep going.

Tuesday even involved full medication--which did wonders for my appreciation of the striped scarflette's color scheme. Yesterday was a bit better, so I started some new socks for myself:
6. Remember that other goal of trying a "braided" quilting project?
