|2 of the 3 geese with their refelction|
Thanks to the geese, the lake is very noisy this morning. I know they are talking to each other, but what are they saying? I guess an animal behaviorist would know, but I can only make something up. “Should we summer here this year?” “Why can’t we all just get along?” or “What’s for breakfast – Look at that cute little dog. She might be yummy!” They better not come near my Bailey or we may be having pate for dinner! (Just kidding.)
We have had a summer house on Whitney Lake for 22 years. It has been a wonderful; place to spend the summers with my sons. They get to a certain age and then there are other things to do and we have not spent nearly enough time here for the past 10 years. I’m hoping this summer will be different.
Over the years, I often look at the reflections of the trees in the water with a quilter’s eye. It is amazing how clear they can be at times, like looking in a mirror. And when the wind gently blows the water, the reflection is distorted. So many times I have thought about how to interpret the reflection in fabric. It definitely would be so challenging. I admire Melinda Bula, who has done this with her quilt of Monterey Bay in a magnificent way. I think that is why this is one of my most favorite quilts.
It is time to stop blathering on. What a great way to procrastinate. Now, it’s time for me to strip the beds, wash all the bedding and get ready for summer.
