Rain overnight and into this morning has put an end to the sweltering heat and humidity we have had for the past few days. My water butt is full and I should be able to pull the weeds out of the flower beds on Sunday, the ground was too dry to even try during this past week.
I needed a "pick me up" so yesterday I bought myself a new pair on sandles, they were on sale, but still cost a fair bit of money. They are good quality, so should last a few Summers. This a.m. I went had had my hair cut, I always feel so much better if my hair, in my opion, looks good. Then stopped at a local veg and fruit market for some fresh salad stuff for lunch.
Tomorrow we are visiting our son and family in Aurora, Ontario, we haven't seen them since Easter. He is a computer programmer, and just recently was able to pick up a used laptop for me. He has loaded all the programs I want, its sure is nice to have someone that knows what they are doing, to do all that for me.
Hand sewing has kept me busy during the evening hours. One of my nephews was married July 2nd. It was the second time around for him and his partner, just a quiet ceremony with the Justice of the Priest. She is such a nice girl, its a pity they didn't find each other the first time.
Their "reception" is going to be a garden party and BBQ mid August. As they have been living together for quite awhile, they really didn't need anything in the way of gifts, but I wanted to give them something, so I am making a cross stitch sampler with their names and wedding date on it. Will show photos when its done. Also started on the English paper piecing flowers for the Grandmothers Garden and finishing the quilt for my great grandson.
Hope everyone is having a great day.
