But, hold your breath...this is the temperature that greeted me in my truck yesterday:
Really? Really really? Please explain to me why it was 93 degrees and we are still in May. I am not looking forward to the summer. Between the drought and the heat, I hope I can keep my trees and plants alive.
Because of that, straight into the house, do not pass go, do not collect 100 dollars. Luckily, my dad's caregiver had kept the house closed up, so it was in the 70's inside. Yay! Checked on Dad and we both took a little nap. I know, I know, not a good idea, makes it hard to go to sleep at a normal time. Since I am off today, I was willing to take the chance.
Up and moving at 5 pm, but it was still in the 90's. Got some inside stuff done. Here is a couple of samplers that I hung in our guest room. I don't remember the name of the first. I did it many years ago. It was the first time I worked on a motif sampler. The second is a La D Da design. I changed the colors and did it in silks.
I have several blank (VERY WHITE!) walls, I need to get my behind in gear and get some stitching DONE! LOL
By 8 pm, it was finally cool enough to go outside. Decided to get a wood box sealed so I can paint it this weekend. I've got a few smalls that need to be mounted on boxes. I was outside for five minutes and noticed that the patio was really messy. Well, I'll just move a few things around and get the leaves picked up...Two hours later...Did someone say SQUIRREL?!? Yes, I did finish spraying the box and the patio looks pretty darn good. LOL So even though I did not go to bed before 11 pm, at least I got "stuff" done.
So, what are my plans for this weekend? I've got a few more leaves to pick up and then some inside chores. The weather man says the temps will be in the 90's again today, so I'll be outside in an hour or so. I would like to get a couple of hours of crafting in, but with my attention span, who knows? LOL
So, peeps, do some fun stuff, hug your loved ones, enjoy your day. Be kind to one another.
