Dog Days of Summer.
"dog days. the sultry part of the summer, supposed to occur during the period that Sirius, the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun: now often reckoned from July 3 to August 11. a period marked by lethargy, inactivity, or indolence." With it being so hot right now, doesn't that just fit?
We have the living room, breakfast area and the kitchen all painted now. I have had the most fun of playing house. See this mirror? When we bought our first house before children. I bought this painting. More for the frame then than the painting inside. 1980 to be exact. The lady who I bought the painting from said that her husband made the frame for her paintings from the old barn wood they had on their property. (Even in 1980 I had a thing for old wood.) I have had it out in my shed. I saw a very expensive mirror online and I knew I could make it with a little help from Ron---okay lots of help.
Since we can't have anything delivered I was on pins and needles and then I ended up picking it up.
Its so fun to be doing house things this summer.
I think if someday she wants it back, I can give it to her. *wink*wink* You know for her babies.
I hope you have a wonderful day. I dreamed all night of moving bookcases, so I might be moving some books today. Painting our bedroom is going to be next and I have just been moving things to there. Ron is going to make a coffee table for me as soon as it isn't over 110. That will be fun. Lots of things to keep myself busy with. Not to mention making a new Hobbs. During the dog days of summer right.
Have a lovely day,
