I have been participating in a color and style program for a while and finally landed on a personal style statement of Lively Minimalism. Then it occurred to me that is exactly what we did in purchasing furniture for our den. The couch is gray so we got a lively pattern for the pillows and a pop of color for the chair. Got to bring some color, interest and energy to everything perhaps.
The summer here is bringing a different kind of hot weather than I have experienced before. Not as hot as some places I have lived, but it is more humid in the morning than I expected as the marine layer moves inland overnight. The sun is quite intense when there is no cloud cover so hats were frequent at the farmer's market this morning even at 9:30am.
I made the mistake of wearing a metal necklace and it felt so hot against my skin so I took it off as soon as I got home. I can see my hot summer day outfits will indeed be minimalist.
I had never thought about there being different varieties of green grapes but there they were at the market. Distinctly different tastes and since I am the only one who like grapes I bought the one I preferred. Heirloom tomatoes for both taste and memories of my Grandma's love of growing different varieties of tomatoes in her garden. Here is my mini-haul as Hubby is out of town and there is a lot in the frig already.
Now to go off and read.
