Weekend Projects

Since it was so hot this weekend, I stayed indoors and finished up a couple painting projects. I tried to take a few pictures but they kept coming out blurry. I don't know what's wrong with the camera except I need a better one someday.

My first piece was a jam jar I had sitting around. Of course I had to decorate it with sunflowers.

My next project is a little metal pot. I really wished the camera would of cooperated because it looks much better than the pictures let on.

I have a larger jar that I plan on using for tea started. Hopefully this week I will get it finished. We'll have to see...


This morning I woke up and had a pleasant surprise when I opened the front door to let Sasha out to potty. It was only 64 degrees! I actually turned off the air conditioner and opened a few windows. According to the weatherman we have a cool front coming through. Its actually suppose to get down into the 50's tonight. What a blessing it will be to keep the air off for a while. I have high hopes of getting into the garden. The weeds have taken over!

Other plans today include figuring out what to make for supper and deciding on a special dessert and covered dish for a family get-together on the 4th. We rarily have the chance for family gatherings it seems so this one will be a lot of fun. I haven't seen my Aunt and cousins for almost a year.

Well I am off! If I don't get started now, things won't get done. I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Take Care,
