The last color this year will be light and bright green. Generally blues and greens build up faster and so I try to give them a bit of extra time. Despite making a nice dent in my darker greens earlier, I have a nice stack of lime to play with this month.
It was a difficult week at work as our beloved front desk clerk and receptionist who had been on medical leave since catching Covid during the earlier peak of the disease has passed away. It has left us all shaken and sad as well as worried for our own safety. There is another emergency board meeting on masks this week and the school board is under intense pressure from our state legislators, board of education and brand new anti-vax surgeon general. The numbers are down considerably from where we started the year, but there is still a lot of tension and fear. Students are no longer required to quarantine after a direct exposure and the parents are free to decide that they should return to all academic and extra-curricular activities instead.
Sorry for all the depressing news. The weather here has been beautiful! There is a taste of fall in the air and it has cooled down considerably. A tropical storm sitting far off the coast is causing some big waves, so I think it will be a big weekend for surfing . As for me, I need to catch up on some sewing!
