Thank you for all your kind words for Melba. I am still terribly sad, but there are many things to keep me busy and distracted.

As I come up on one year of living in Kansas, I have been very aware of my environment. Querido and I went on a long walk this weekend, and it feels like summer may be having its last hurrah. This seems early: in Arizona everyone is hunkering down for the long drag to summer’s bitter end. But in Kansas, the mornings are cool and so are the breezes. Our lawn, which was shooting up almost as fast as we could mow, has slowed down enough for us to skip a week of mowing.
I finished up the last of my summer tops, and they are only waiting for photos. I want to knit socks and hats and sweaters, but there is another large project in the queue…
