Summer Solstice Arrives

A Busy Month

Been working at going to on-call status at the hospital...given the change of managers and the settling in of the new unit, it's been rather frustrating. But hope within a couple of days to have it in place. Starting my last rotation of 7 nocs tonight, then will be done.
The Rydecki harp had 2 strings break, finally got them back in place, but now another tuning peg seems to be rather loose. Time for the "fairy dust" to tighten it up!
And from the Farmer's Almanac newsletter that I received today:

Hail, old October, bright and chill, 
First freedman from the summer sun! 
Spice high the bowl, and drink your fill! 
Thank heaven, at last the summer’s done!
–Thomas Constable (181281)

Love this time of scents and lovely colours along with the nice coolness to help the sleep.
