How I wish I could be more spontaneous and write a daily post to my blog! For me, it's not the writing that's difficult, it's sharing some random thought or idea with my readers. I'll give it a try. . .
We are really in the midst of a heatwave here in SoCal! Temps reached 102 degrees and that's too hot for me. My husband's brother and his family from Delaware visited last week with us and of course we took them to the beach. It was lovely to see the clouds in the sky as the weatherman was predicting rain. But, no rain appeared.
Lilly is taking the heat in stride. She can easily find a cool place for her to "rest". I can't believe that we've had this little cat for over ten years!
Usually as soon as the sun sets, it cools off. But, this week the heat has kept up with highs in the 70's even in the evening. Last night we sat out by the pool and I turned on my fairy lights. It was so nice sitting and feeling the little breeze.
Of course, I had my knitting/crochet basket next to me until it became so dark I couldn't see. I was inspired to make this little bag after seeing something similar on Etsy. I just made up the pattern as I went along. It's made with leftover cotton yarn and will be for a dear friend who loves owls.
My children have been busy exploring the world this summer. My daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren attended a swanky wedding in England (West Midlands).
Before reaching England, they toured Romania for a week on their own in a rented car. The photos she shared were amazing. I want to go to Romania!
And, my son has been busy working in Georgia (the country) and enjoying the sights of that beautiful area.
I feel as though I haven't really cooked in my kitchen for a week. When our guests were here last week, we were invited out for a couple of dinners and took them out a time or two. Today, my husband is insisting on taking me to the beach for dinner. I'm not going to complain! Our home has air conditioning but after awhile, it becomes unbearable to sit inside all the time! I'll be so happy when this heat wave is over.
That's whats been happening in my part of the world. I'd love to hear what you've been up to this summer.
With my best wishes,
