Blistering Hot Weekend!



Blistering hot weekend! The temperature coupled with the humidity made it feel like a 104F yesterday, and almost that hot Saturday. We opted to leave the bikes parked for the weekend. Instead we drove to Port Stanley to see another play on Saturday and yesterday we headed up for a quiet day along the St. Clair River. Joe loves the lake freighters and I take pictures of them for him. Yesterday we saw three that he had never seen before so he was very happy. In case you live inland, here’s a photo of a lake freighter. They are HUGE!



Lots of pleasure boats on the river as well and I have this photo I took as my wall-paper photo on my computer.



Today’s weather is back to the normal temperature so that’s good. It’s catching up on the laundry (Joe does the washing, I hang them on the line) and generally taking it easy day.

Today’s card is one that really makes a statement. 


Love this Memory Box die! The red background paper had lots of texture in it – it reminded me of red leather so I thought perfect for a masculine card....but could be for anyone really. The black is the die cut piece and it’s just glued onto the red. The little bird was die cut and sponged with brown ink. It needed a wing which didn’t come with the die so I just hand-cut one, inked it the same way and glued it on. A quick card but very dramatic.

That’s all for a beautiful Monday,

Cheers
Violet

HOt here too..uuughh... 50-60% chance of rain this evening... hope we get some .. its been about 2 weeks of high temps without rain... we are due...

Today has not been a 'take it easy' day for us... we pulled the sheetrock from the outer walls in two rooms and i scrapped the popcorn from the ceiling in one room....now we're pooped! Tomorrow we will take it little easier to recover... I'll scrape another ceiling and Hubs will work on electrical... Its about time to dump the trailer again ...maybe do that Wednesday then its back to pulling more sheetrock...
