Marcus Island

My Mama keeps asking for an air conditioner cover, and I keep hoping she will forget.  

She never forgets…must be part elephant.

So I finally chose a pretty pink rose print (to complement her sofa) and made a cover for her air conditioner.  

I don’t have a photo.  Mama doesn’t have the cover yet, either.  I was hoping to be able to bring it to her by her birthday, but…you know, COVID and all that.

Soon, Mom!  (Yes…she reads my posts!)

Since I don’t have sewing related photos (I have done some quilting), I am giving you a photo heavy post of a walk I took earlier this week.

I am super blessed to have Marcus Island across the street from me…I love to visit here!

“THERE is something in the autumn that is native to my blood—
Touch of manner, hint of mood;
And my heart is like a rhyme,
With the yellow and the purple and the crimson keeping time.”
― Bliss Carman

“Come, little leaves,” said the Wind one day, “Come to the meadows with me and play. Put on your dresses of red and gold; For Summer is past, and the days grow cold.”

“Let whoever wants to, relax in the south,
And bask in the garden of paradise.
Here is the essence of north and it’s autumn
I’ve chosen as this year’s friend.”
― Anna Akhmatova, The Complete Poems of Anna Akhmatova
