This cropped top reminds me of the homemade tops my mother made for me as a girl and of the cropped circle tops I wore in young 20s. They were a very simple design and very cool. This one is a pale yellow seersucker. I was mid-way through a lengthy photo session when I stopped to count the number of seersucker items in my wardrobe--both pair of shorts, one pair of slacks, a skirt, a dress, and this top. Guess I must like the crisp look of this light fabric.
This past Tuesday, I rode to Columbia, Missouri, in our beater pickup truck with DH to pick up the 8th antique organ he has acquired since the first of the year. This pickup is very basic--it has no air conditioning and no radio and you can see the highway through the floor board in spots. Somehow road trips like this make us feel like we're in our 20s again. This is what I wore. The blouse is by Tommy Hilfiger, the bowling shoes by AMF, and the flowered sunhat is unknown,but all items were thrifted. The flowered hat proved to be a godsend before the end of the 8 hour trip as I was facing into the sunset on the return trip.
On Thursday, we thought we might soon have a swarm on our hands as we found ALL of our bees on the outside of the hive. I don't think I've ever suited up in my super-hero beekeeper's suit for the blog. If they are going to swarm it is often this time of year and often at the time of day we took this photo. We've since decided that they may simply be ready for an additional honey super up top.
Another day, we took my step-son C.'s canoe for a trial run in our local city lake. He's planning to float the length of the Mississippi this summer.
And finally, we've taken our tandem bike for spin or two.
It's nice to be a little more active for a change. Hope your summer has kicked off well.
