Nothing but blue skies ahead

Summer doesn't officially start until next week, but it is definitely in full swing here in the mountains.  The wildflowers are blooming, the days are warm, the humidity is very low and the evenings remain in the mid-forties...good sleeping weather, as it has been said.

You may have seen news of the two largest fires in NM.  They're down in the southern part of the state; so far, we have stayed safe up here.  The afternoon thunderheads are starting to build and we hope our summer monsoons will start in a few weeks, both because we need the moisture and because we don't want dry lightning to start more fires.

Things have been busy here.  The former shop space will be empty in another week and as some of it leaves in a rental truck for California, I will fly ahead to meet it at the other end.  I'm looking forward to a summer with my family, my quilting, and my friends.

I've decided to give myself a break and not worry about posting here this summer.  I'll still be following your blogs, and I'm not saying I won't come back...I just want to focus on lots of other things for a while.

So, my friends...have a wonderful summer, and if you wish to be in touch privately, please feel free to e-mail me...I'd love to hear from you!

I guess winter is the best time for blogging anyway! I do miss you already!
Have a good summer and I hope you continue to make progress with the changes you are making with the shop. It feels better here already and now it's just getting my health squared away! One day at a time!
Prayers too for your safety from the fires in your region.
Hugs and blessings dear friend!

Have a wonderful time out in California. Soon as I have a date as to when we will be going out - I'll let you know. David days it will be late Aug to early September, now. Work is very busy.
I hope we are in the same area at the same time.

Be safe. Vaya con Dios mi amiga!

Enjoy your time away from blogging....I thought about doing that too, but just gave up Facebook instead....enjoying all the extra time that NOT being on there has given me. Enjoy your family and your summer!

Enjoy your summer! I completely understand about needing to take time to focus on yourself and your family. :)Everyone needs a good break.

Oh the sky is so blue!
Have a joyful summer with family and friends! Breaks form blogging is always a good thing in my book.
