I can't believe it's past the middle of September. The predicted highs for the next week are in the mid90s - way too hot!

Tina and I went down to the Ringgold quilt/yarn shop this morning. She got some fabric to line the bag she is going to make for Kate out of some of Kate’s woven fabric. I got a book for Jean about making art and functional pieces out of clothesline covered with fabric scraps. Looks like fun.

Allan and Tina have gotten season tickets to the symphony (seats next to ours). We picked them up and went to dinner at a branch of our favorite Mexican restaurant, and then on to the concert. This is the last season for our long-time maestro, so last year and this, many concerts are showcasing guest conductors. That was the case tonight. He was good, but sort of flamboyant. The program was the 5th Symphonies of Schubert and Shostakovich. Both were good, but I preferred the Schubert.
These sweeping empty vistas are, to us, reminiscent of Scotland.
