We've had a rash of afternoon thunderstorms in this neck of the woods, and even had an unexpected hail shower! I was trying to nab a quick photoshoot on the back porch when the rain began to blow in sideways and little icy pellets started landing on the floorboards. Let's just say I decided to postpone the photos.
Izze is a new favorite of mine (grapefruit, especially!). Yes, fruit juice is still sugary and carbonated beverages are still not ideal. But for a little treat now and then, it's just the ticket. Especially when paired with a toasted baguette spread with Kerrygold butter. I don't know what those Irish cows are eating, but once you try Kerrygold you will never want another butter again!
At least all of the rain has led to new growth. It's far too hot to spend much time outside these days, so the brief chill of a summer hailstorm was the perfect opportunity to see some green and growing things.
Little Man calls all frogs Jeremy Fisher now that I've introduced him to Beatrix Potter's tale. He likes to have conversations with them, which means that I am called upon to supply the frog's part of the dialogue. A little chat after dinner the other night (for "Jeremy Fisher" likes to take advantage of the bug-attracting light from our dining room window) resulted in Jeremy asking if he could sleep in Little Man's bed. "No," said Little Man, "because you are an animal frog."
In other news, the Drawstring Tee pattern is now complete, so all I have to do is take a few pictures for a tutorial and get everything posted!
