Good-bye May-Hello June

I hope you had a very nice Memorial Weekend. Wasn't it nice to have a three day weekend? June is here. Today we will be 102 and by Friday, if the weather man is right, 109. As much as I complain about it. I do feel better when it is hot. I seem to get more rugs hooked when it is hot because I am not running in and outside as much.

I wanted to hook this rug this weekend. I really enjoyed these colors. I really like red and white and blue.

My own pattern
I dyed the wool's for this rug. I really liked these colors. I have so many rugs going through my mind. I was even dreaming of rug hooking last night.

One good thing about the heat, is I think the pool will be warm enough for me. I am such a baby when it comes to cold water. I will tell you, when I had the kids here swimming, they never seemed to notice how cold I thought it was. One of my grandsons dropped a toy that he had been playing with and it was going really fast towards the deep in. He was too afraid to dive for it. What does grandma do? What every good grandma would do, I dove in that cold weather and swam down and got that toy. I thought as I gave it too him, I don't know if I would have done that for my own kids. :) Grandma's are a different breed I think.

I hope you have a wonderful week. Another thing that is great about hot weather, my sheets dry in about thirty minutes and then has that wonderful line dried smell. Aw summer is nice. Seeds really come up fast and my tomatoes and peppers are so happy.

  3. Yes, grandma's are a different breed and that's a good thing.
    When I had my pool (in a different lifetime...lol!) if the water was below 80* I turned on the heater :)
    Your hydrangea header photo is beautiful and so is your sweet rug.
    Happy June :)

  7. I know, it's like WHAM, summer! I'll put the heavy curtains over the windows and we'll retreat to our dark lair for six months. I love your flag! It's so bright.
