1344 more pages to go.  I made the mistake of watching “Severus Snape: Friend or Foe?” videos on the Borders website.  I evidently missed a lot of things or didn’t attach the same significance to certain events as other readers.  So now I have set myself the task of rereading Harry Potter books 5 and 6 before number 7 arrives on my doorstep, July 21st.  Sometimes when I’m reading, I get so involved in the story, that I miss little “red herrings?” that the author threw in.  So this time around I’m paying special attention to Snape’s worst memory and the unbreakable vow that he makes with Narcissa Malfoy.  There are other parts I’ll be concentrating on, but those are the 2 main ones.  Since I will have my nose in a book for the next week, there may not be many posts to the blog.   Nothing new.  Right? 

We had several days of sunshine which brought extremely high humidity due to the waterlogged soil.  But now the rains are back.  We have already received the equivalent of our yearly average.  The garden is struggling but it’s pretty much a write off.  One struggling eggplant got a bloom, but then it fell off a day later.  The only herbs that are doing well are the globe basil and the salad burnet.  Of course the rosemary and sage that I have in pots on the patio, are doing fine.

While the sun was out, we did get the big flower bed in the front weeded and mulched.  Looks good.  I’ll post pictures when I can.

A little knitting has been done here and there, but not enough to talk about.

I’ve found fabrics and patterns for my first blocks in the Progressive Blocks Round Robin.  Now I just need to get busy.

The other day, I drove across town to Oklahoma Quiltworks.  Didn’t find the fabric I was looking for, but that didn’t stop some other fabrics from following me home.  When I left Quiltworks, I walked down the sidewalk to “get the point…”.  It’s a needlework shop that Ann had told me about.  Chatted with the friendly ladies that worked there about Ann’s crazy quilting, and promised to bring some of my work when I go back.  Then I found some Needlepoint Silk and a skein of Silk ‘N Colors in the color “Monster Mash”, that I thought might work for my CQ seascape.

The rain has stopped and the radar isn’t showing any more coming for a while.  So I’m going to try and get to the grocery store and back without getting wet.
