We had a couple of unusually hot summer days the last couple of weeks here in Portland. It was lovely outside, and we spent most of our days outside. Drinking ‘Radler’ at Hedge House on SE Division (Leona’s Skirt is a free pattern by Oliver +S – very simple and quick to make), visiting the Ducks at their Pond on Laurelhurst Park, splish-splash enjoying the little Kiddy Pool at Steven, Soren and Mike’s house where L. was ‘pouring’ her heart out. Isn’t it funny? I am 100% sure almost everybody has a photo that looks just like this one. At least i have one of myself taken more then 35 years ago but with the same mood. We cycled all over town and went with L. down to the waterfront to check out the Jazz Festival on the Willamette. Beautiful Summer so far – even if it takes a little break right now for us all to get ready for the heat again.
