This week we were back in downtown Raleigh for another overnight.
No dodging the rain as we did two weeks back, still very hot but we
managed to walk about quite a bit without trouble. Good times and
opportunities to take more photos of our ever-growing cityscape.
More 'City of Oaks' decor. There are four of these interesting towers
on each corner of a plaza and they actually play music!
Back home the figs are almost over and the bees are feasting furiously.
Instead of figs I baked a plum galette - always a favorite and seeing them
in the stores makes me think that Autumn is getting closer. . . . . . . thankfully!
I've already stored the pink early summer flower art and
dug out from storage this more autumnal feeling oil painting.
Tea cups and saucers I purchased in Thailand.
We had torrential rain here again overnight and early this morning,
in fact that was what woke me up before 7 AM. Cloudy all day
and we only reached 79F - the coolest day we've had all
Tomorrow will be warmer again, with full sun all day. We've been invited
over for drinks on a neighbor's beautiful new screened-in porch (no
mosquitoes!) with overhead fans and comfortable furniture. . . . hope he
chills the rosé well then it will be a perfect evening!
Enjoy your weekend and take care, especially those of you in those
hot spots in the UK, Germany, France - 103F/39C today in my brother's
village in the south of France!!!
