We celebrated my youngest son's 24th birthday today as he came home for a visit from Saint John where he works. It's about four hours form here. I'm not kidding myself though, mostly why he came was that his girlfriend is also here for the summer and he hadn't seen her for a few weeks. The weather was perfect though, so we spent a good part of yesterday outside and had a barbecue for supper. Jeremy always does the barbecueing and is much better at it than me or his father. This morning we went out for breakfast with him and his girlfriend , her parents and grandmother. Later he left to visit his grandparents who have a place at the beach near here.
I also took some time to do this little drawing of a June bug found on the deck. I wonder how long their lifespan is and why we always find them dead in the morning. I don't particularly like them when they're beating on my screen here in my sewing room after dark--to be honest they give me the creeps. When they're dead--I know it's mean--they are interesting.
