YIKES! It's a hot one here today in the burb's of Chicago! Everyone is hiding in their houses with the air conditioning going full force! Including me... except when I go out quickly to check on a few pumpkins baking in the heat!!! They are talking 100 here today! UGH! Then add we've had barely had 2" of rain since May, so guess what, DROUGHT! UGH!
So where I have I been???? Well, I did that turn thing several weeks ago, you know the one the back didn't like so it put me in bed for about 10 days... All I can say is crap on a cracker! My new saying! LOL!!! Guess where I got it from???? Anyway, when that happens, nothing happens! So since then lots of catch up, with the house, crafing and well life!
Finally last night Hubby and I went to see our nieces play their last softball games... Yikes were is the summer going????
So inbetween all of life's little twists.... Some pumpkins are getting created! YES PUMPKINS! Tis the season, well at least for the creator!
So BIG GOOFY JACK! is for sale, if anyone is interested in giving him a home for the fall season email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, kindly asking $40 and travel fare.... HE IS SOLD, THANK YOU!
Oh my poor flowers... lots and lots of watering is done each day... with not a rain drop in site... many, many sighs.... for me it's just flowers, but for the farms, their livihood, no words, only hope for lots of rain very soon!
So a few putina's holding up in the heat... Though trees showing stress... some leaves starting to drop.. that will make for a ugly fall....
Then lastly what does one do when they are laid up and bored??? Shop on line! LOL!... That needs to stop... creates a new mess.. more things that I need to part with to make room for the new..... But, I do so love my new treasures!
