I live in the northern hemisphere where summer is in July and winter is January. And, like the vast majority of humans who also live above the equator, I have a tendency to forget about the reversal of seasons that happens as you travel south. (or, to be objective, the reversal that happens as you travel north if your home happens to be in Christchurch).
All of this is to explain why I was astonished, then pleased to find that there were cherries for sale in Costco the other day. Rainier Cherries to be exact. Looked and tasted pretty right allowing for the fact that they were not exactly picked this morning. My first thought was – HUH? and my second was to read the fine print on the label. Chile. Grown and picked in Chile – south of the equator where the end of spring is just rolling in. Duh.
This was otherwise a quiet day in which I stitched some, slept off a migraine and discovered after about two hours of stitching that using Pattern Keeper doesn’t prevent blatant stupidity. Uploading single pages is great. But the stitcher needs to pay attention to overlaps…. 200+ stitches to be frogged.
Photo updates on Friday.
