Raining & Complaining
It may be raining nearly every day here but at least it's not cold and dark.
One of my very favorite activities of sub-arctic winter ~ Snowshoeing!
Something I don't get to do much anymore since we started escaping to Arizona for the winters.
Summer blueberry picking.
I don't think we've had more than two days of blue sky since May here. The temps have been hovering between 50F and 60 F (10C-15C) with clouds, rain or wind for most of June and July now. I have managed to get in a few good spells of blueberry picking in between clouds and at least it's light out all night albeit rainy.
It does make for some good studio time though and I've been attacking the 100 or so archaeology artifact boxes that I was given that were going to be thrown away by the university museum and I'm doing some decoupage of ephemera and images on them.
I also have a couple of metal tables that I'd picked up at a garage sale that are ripe for decoupage as well. The philatelic magazines that my husband gets are full of stamp and antique mail images that I'm finding to be fun to decoupage.
