Well, we have been roasting down here in Alabama and dry as a bone, but it seems we may have some relief now during 'dog days'. The old saying is ~ whatever weather you have on the first day of 'dog days' is the kind of weather you will have for the next 40 days. Well we had a cooling thunder storm, and so far that will continue. A 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms the rest of this weekend and 40% on into next week with temps in the high 80's to low 90's. After a 107 temp that is fine with me.
I am working on some mini journals and altered art tags for my ETSY shop and will have something to show you later today (maybe) and definitely Sunday and Monday. With the temps so high I don't use my computer so much since I don't have airconditioning where my computer is located (my whole house AC died a couple of years ago and I couldn't afford to fix it). Air conditioning this area (kitchen, breakfast room [where my computer is] and the den is hard since that area has large 9ft open doorways to the front of the house. Bad luck is how expensive it would be to install a door frame and double door (necessary) in that entry way. Money is just too tight and neither Don or I have the skill to do it ourselves. We just hibernate in the master suite (that has a window aircondioner) during the worst of the heat ~ I mean just what's wrong with staying in bed reading etc all day ?? After nearly 50 years of working at 1 to 2 jobs and doing craft shows, I can be lazy with the best of folks.
Well it is thundering in the distance and just started raining so I will say goodbye til later.
My prayers are with all the folks that have endured the fires and storms this last couple of weeks. Keep Calm and Pray. It really does help.
