Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!

May turned into full summer on us! I don't know about all y'all but having day after day of 100+ degree temperatures is NOT my idea of comfort! I made use of the long-awaited holiday weekend to get outside early enough in the day that I could get things done before the temperatures climbed so high that being outside was decidedly unpleasant.

The weather has forced me to turn my attention to inside jobs, which is fine with me as there is no dearth of those! I pulled out the 10 slide carousels filled with slides my great-aunt took on her many travels in the mid-50s and have been going through them one by one. I am struck by several things: this is pre-interstate days and even though the "highways" are 2-lane roads, I never see a lot of traffic in her pictures. The roads are practically deserted! She visited the Grand Canyon in April, and there were only 3 other cars in the parking lot! The scenic views she visited on the Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway still have visible views, because the trees have not yet grown up to block the view, and the views ARE beautiful. These slides are a fascinating time capsule look into a time long gone.

I have dozens of t-shirts I love, but will no longer wear for one reason or another, and I can't bring myself to just toss them. So one of my indoor projects is making a t-shirt blanket. Depending on the image on the shirt, I am cutting out either 13" squares or 15" squares and the end result will be a blanket of happy memories - theater productions I did, places I visited, causes I supported, etc. - all sewn together into a blanket (not that I'll NEED a blanket for a while…..). I'm excited about it!

We have several fun events for this month, including a group-sponsored boat ride at Wakulla Springs, be sure to RSVP so we know you are coming. I'm also have a party at my house, a combination birthday and solstice party, if you are a new member and have been curious to check out the group, this might a be a good opportunity, it will be casual and fun. And of course Harry Potter returns this month and we have our usual monthly dinner gathering. You can find all the details in the calendar and on the web site. We would love to see you!

Hope to see you at an event soon.

Robin
