The summer weather is off to a really great start! This makes me wonder if I need to offer Mother Nature an apology since I was so hard on her about the Neverending Winter of 22-23. I said some pretty unkind things, and I'm sorry for it.
Ok, that is a lie. I'm not sorry; that winter sucked.
But! As I said, summer is going swimmingly! It hasn't been hot, but it hasn't been cold. There's been plenty of sunshine, yet some quick squalls have blown through regularly; quenching the thirst of my garden plants and flowers.
The flowers have attracted a plethora of butterflies and bees, which always make my heart happy. I especially love the yellow swallowtails that flit around the house at Not So New Job; they were a lifeline for me back in 2020, when I was adrift and drowning in anxiety and depression; seriously questioning my life's choices.
These butterflies bring me such peace.
And, that wraps up this edition of Friday Favorites. I'm sure I'll have plenty of new things to talk about next week, because I actually have plans this weekend, including the gender reveal for Kaley and Isaac! I've done what Hugh refers to as my Gypsy-Hoodoo Voodoo on her and I am looking forward to seeing if my streak remains unbroken (never been wrong and have been doing this for years!).
