Painting is almost done upstairs, carpets cleaned and everything put back. We just have the bathroom left. We are going to take a break though. We. Are. Sick. of. Painting!!!
This weekend I did manage to make Hobbs. I will take him to his new home today. I think he will be happy about it.
|A Kessie Rug.|
I now have all of my rugs bound too. Now I can start a new rug. I think I will need a day of dyeing wool. We are in the words of the weatherman "having a record breaking heat wave." I think this will be my next rug. I love the ants. That is why I haven't dyed any wool--- and the painting.
Only this time, we aren't as hot as everyone else. It hit 118 in Arizona yesterday and it will be 120 today. My daughter just pooh-poohs it. They really are set up for it. The play grounds have these nice covers to keep the sun out and the parking lots are are covered too. They are much better equipped to handle heat. Not to mention they build power plants. Unlike this state I currently live in who doesn't do any of those things or repair roads, because they want to spend billions on a train. Okay rant over.
Today is my grandson's 7th birthday. I am going to his birthday party. He wanted a helicopter, a good watergun and a lamp. I cracked up. I have to see what this grandma can do about it.
Enjoy this first day of summer. I have always judged my life by my summers. There is just something wonderful about the toasty air, the smell of the water in the swimming pool, the dew drenched grass and the velvet skies in the evening, filled with spangly stars. The only thing that would make it perfect would be the little lights blinking off and on of the lighting bugs. We don't have them here. But the sound of crickets make me just as happy.
Happy Summer Solstice to you,
P.S. That means Fall will be here before we know it. *wink-wink*
To the library.
