end of august

now the end of august, it really feels like summer has
ended and fall is settling down around here.  

last several days, i have no time for myself, just working
every day and saving my time off for upcoming visit to
see my father in the hospital.   i will be away for a while
from here to spend sometime with him and searching 
the best way for his recovery.  
because of this, if i received any etsy sale, those item
will be ship to you as soon as things get settled.  
i am sorry for the long waiting time, but will try to ship
by middle of september.  

thanks for your understanding

first cup of coffee in green mug but didn't taste 
good enough.  made another fresh brew and poured
into my usual favorite cup.  two of favorite are 
fat and heavy one.  but feels good on hand while
holding, and coffee taste good.  it help me start the day
in good direction.  do you have favorite mugs?

i was student once.   it was very tight financially but
was craving for making and having handmade things
in my own home, bought the least expensive cotton fabric,
made stitches and sewed into kitchen towel.   it has been
washed and dried numerous times.  many years passed by,
of course the color and the quality faded though, still remains
one of most favorite towels in the kitchen today. 

whatever you spent time creating will be
your best friend for a long time..

blueberry in yogurt for breakfast this morning.
zucchini in soup for supper and take some
for lunch tomorrow.  day is getting shorter but 
the sun is still making her last effort to make
summery atmosphere.   in the garden, 
cinnamon basil are making lots of baby sprouts
and i also noticed other new sprout... 
at this time, i intentionally didn't put icecream scoop
for their name tag, i decided to enjoy the surprises
they bring.  that would be a good reason to get to
the garden in and out
