HI everyone. Happy Thursday to you.
This week Rain's Thursday challenge theme is Flowers Blooming.
First let me share this art journal page for Matilde's bird challenge at Art Journal Journey. You can see it has both birds and flowers blooming.
I think flowers in a garden without any birds singing nearby just wouldn't seem complete.

Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday (or Monday night) to you. It's time for T over at Bleubeard's and Elizabeth's blog where we share our drink related posts and often chat a bit.
This week is definitely not one of my exciting posts, but I do have 3 drinks to share.
Last weekend I attended a wedding on Saturday night and then my niece's bridal shower Sunday morning at 11. I wish I had taken photos from the wedding as it was held at an ocean side resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. It was quite pretty. The bride is a friend of my daughter's whom we've known since they were both 2 years old. The couple had their ceremony on a pretty knoll overlooking the harbor.

Hi everyone. I hope everyone's having a nice weekend.
It's very hot and humid here again this weekend, before we get another cool down this upcoming week.
I'm up early today as I need to head off to Massachusetts for my niece's bridal shower. The shower is at 11, and I have a 2+ hour drive, as long as there's no traffic to slow me down. And last night we had a wedding in Maine. I responded to both of the RSVP's when both covid numbers and gas prices were much lower than they are now. I guess next week I will be testing to be sure I didn't catch covid, even though I did/will mask up for much of these events, but you can't eat nor drink with a mask on, can you?
The wedding was fun though. Much of the wedding was actually outside, and it luckily was much cooler at the coast than it was at home. The bride at the wedding has known my daughter since they were 2 years old, and I know both her and her mom and step dad quite well. And my niece is my only niece not through marriage. Since her mom died of breast cancer a few years ago, I feel like I needed to go and be there for her. Plus, she is my niece, and I want to enjoy this part of her life with her. I'm sad that I can't stop on my way home from the shower and visit my mom though, as I go right through the area where she lives. Her assisted living is in the midst of a covid outbreak, and they are requesting no visitors until it settles down. It is probably best since I'll have been to the 2 events, but it's time for a visit.
