Family and just a little chatting
What else have I been doing. Just bouncing back from a tummy bug or a Celiac attack. Who knows. Just glad it is better now. I find that I can't cheat at all. By cheating I mean a couple of bites of bread.
It's hot out. Just saw a weather map that is predicting a cooler August than normal. Yeah, that's perfect for me. Last week the weather was cooler and amazing.
The neighbors have been cutting down trees since 8 a.m. and it is now 3 p.m. We are talking professional tree people. Down is the gigantic leaning tree. I can't see what else they have been doing. They haven't asked me to move my car. They are working where I can't see and have been awhile. I may have to switch from shade to sun plants. I have to take my son to the doctor and hoping I can get down our lane to get out. The chain saws are a bit annoying. Sometimes I forget and think that Izzy, the Yorkie, is snoring loudly. She can keep up with the best in that department for sure.
No showings since the open house. Sure hope we didn't jinx the market. That happened when we listed four years ago Hoping things pick up soon, real soon. I am staying positive and not going to throw the towel in. Too much work to do it again. Looking so forward to my new cozy space. I drove by yesterday and wished to myself for it to happen soon.
I started making mini banners for the mini swap that I signed up for. Luckily I could find my paper and punches.
I will soon have a giveaway I have been lucky to win a couple recently. I always feel that I should pay if forward. It will be stamping supplies. I also will be parting with many stamp sets as our new place (oh let it be) will not be big enough for all that I have.
It sure feels like school is starting with all the advertising and talk about "back to school." Being in a family of teachers I hear a lot of school talk. Miss Mabel will be going to K full time. I am sure I will be watching M and M before or after school. I will still have Miss O on Thursdays. It's funny that every year my jobs differ.
I came across a special on canvases. So I ordered this picture on one. It will only be a 11 x 14. My daughter liked this shot since everyone was doing their own thing. I had yelled for them to look at me and that's what I got. (It is a little different than the one that I posted before.) My DIL has a camera with a foot long lens. Wish she had offered to do pictures. She didn't so this was the best I got with a point and shoot. Can you see Mabel in the front with the net on her face, hah.
Well, friends. Hoping your are enjoying your summer days with sunshine, swimming pools and lightening bugs. I tell my littles they are fairies.
