The July Burlington was yesterday... Not bad weather-wise, although I was a bit hot at the end. I sold some of what I brought (and have another empty container to fill) and bought a few things as well... Two Japanese teapots, a Bybee mug in the color I like, another #7 cast iron skillet, a wooden box with slots for tools and suchlike, an American folklore book, and another book on knitted and crocheted lace.
Not that much, really. And it wasn't a bad day, merely tiring. I think I wrote two sentences before I crashed last night around 8pm.

The weather at the moment makes me pine for fall. It barely hit 80F today. And it's been raining for hours, which is even better.
My garden will be so happy because of this!

It hadn't rained in over two weeks, so everything was extra hot and dry and drooping a little (the squash, at least; the tomatoes are fine) but we are supposed to get more rain tonight and tomorrow, and it's also supposed to cool off (a lot!)
I still haven't turned on the air conditioner, however.
I made blueberry sorbet this weekend, along with blueberry cake and a lentil salad for lunches most of the week. All delicious!

This morning on my way to work, the ending for A Glint of Silver appeared in my mind. Curiously enough, it coincides with some of the early events in Fire & Water, namely Cecilia's escape.
This is why I write without an outline. :)

One of the things on my list for this weekend was to make more jam; I am running low. So today I made 99% Seedless Blackberry Jam and Blueberry Jam! Yum!
Blackberry. (I say almost seedless because I can't be absolutely certain there's not a seed or two in there. )
And Blueberry! The blueberry made 3 3/4 half pints, so the not-quite full one will have to be eaten first.
I know, they look alike. I will have to mark them before I put them away.
I am also making a small loaf of blueberry bread and a loaf of walnut bread for the week.
I feel like I got a lot done this weekend!

End result of the raspberries: 13 quarts in my freezer, probably close to 18 picked (or eaten) overall. A good year!
I picked a quart of red currants, and almost a quart of both black and white.
I think I will be picking cucumbers next:

One year later, and I can't really say I've missed my home Internet connection all that much. (If at all, truthfully.)
