Lathes, Sunflowers, Heat, Movies, and Summer

There's a lot on my mind.
And not much at all.
Deep thoughts, and other musings, come and go.

A neighbor asked about movie nights, what's up with those? he asked. We haven't had one in a while. Geoff and the boys are on to a new project, I say. Not new, just gaining steam in recent months. It began years ago, an idea for working in Hawaii. Seems we are staying Mainland, but the idea is still a good one.

So, movie night. Yeah, I think we should have a double feature Friday night. A potluck, so we can share the best of our summer fare. Then a family feature on the big screen, and something after for the big(ger) kids. Yes, the best of summer.

And now we are off for a factory tour, to see where metal shop mills are manufactured. Lathes, routers, computer numerical control milling... this will be interesting.

This, I believe, may be the randomness that comes from heat, and the winding down of summer freedom... muddled, thoughts, like slow creeks, going no where in particular.

Lovely photos. I don't know if it is, but the "Purity" photo almost looks like a store entrance...

Ah, factory tour of metal shop things... My ears perk up, Husband uses them extensively, and so going to a factory would be like 'old home week'. I can even sometimes carry on a competent conversation about them, having tried to listen and pay attention to Husband's explanations.

Random blogs are very interesting, I think you get a peek into how said bloggers mind works!

It doesn't feel like we've had a summer yet. I haven't had time for any tinkering or any fun playing around. The kids have been suffering the same thoughts are muddled indeed. Maybe it's in the air!
