At 9:30 a.m. and my thermometer is reading 33.*C, fore casted temps today 34*C but by the looks of it, it will be higher. When the humidity is factored in it feels like a sauna at 44*C. The rain we had earlier this week during thunderstorms did not do much good, it almost evaporated as fast as it fell. It's summer what can we expect.
Birds and squirrels are regular visitors to my pond to get a cool drink of water. Robins are even getting into the waterfall for a shower, they are such fun to watch.
So what am I doing to keep cool?, staying in the house with the A/C on, (which I absolutely hate) reading and sewing.
Reading--Just finished two of Nicholas Sparks' books, The Wedding and The Notebook, which was recently made into a movie, which I have yet to see. Thoroughly enjoyed them both. Earlier this week pick up another of his books Dear John, plus one from Gilda O'Neill.
Sewing--Using up some of my selvages by making a backpack. So far I am liking the way it looks. Today the lining and the flap will be finished so on the home stretch now. Just have to purchase a large coordinating button, haven't been able to find one that is "just right". Also, working on putting together my one block wonder and making "cubes" to go in it. The fabric, I am using would be classed into the ugly category, but after being cut up into small triangles for the hexagon blocks it looks a lot better.
Photo's of both to follow in a later blog.
Have a great Friday everyone.
