Boy, since I got back from CHA, I really haven't worked in my studio at all. I've "worked" trust me..just not in here. lol I gave both dogs baths today ..and believe me..that IS work! Whew! Molly just has to fight it every inch of the way. It's like All star Wrestling! Aly is an angel pup..she just puts up with it. Anyway, glad it's over for a bit.
Wes was home for a bit today, with his new friend Hannah. They were going into Omaha tonight with friends and then coming back here to stay until tomorrow. It's nice to finally get to meet her. (I didn't push it with them.. with the camera,but maybe tomorrow, lol)
I worked in the yard some today. I thought I would go out in the morning before it got really hot. Well, it was really hot at the crack of dawn, so that plan didn't really work out. I was pulling weeds out of my flowers in the front (always on snake watch), and it was just miserable out. But I toughed it out ,and got it done. YAY! For the first time I didn't see any snakes .. only one big toad (probably the one I took a picture of a while back)lol It startled me, but there was no screaming involved, just some talking out loud to myself. "Geezzz, you stupid toad , You scared the crap out of me" Oh brother.. it's a good thing I live in the country and don't have neighbors. lol
Never take yourself too seriously! That's what I thought when I ran across the photo of this lady. I needed a little notebook for my purse , so this is what I made. lol
The hats, wings, papers and stamps are all Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.
I always wondered why the women in these old photos look so darn SERIOUS.. ummm... I think I would too if I had to carry water from the well, boil water to cook, and bathe, raise a huge garden, cann all the food , make EVERYTHING from scratch, sew my own clothes along with the trillion other things they had to do. Geezzz, and to think I was complaining about having to just go to the grocery store yesterday. lol
The heat has been hard on my plants ,but they are hanging in there. Hopefully there will be a reprieve soon.
