The humidity has been almost nonstop, with only one day of cool and comfortable temperatures. So I've been hiding in the house for the most part.
Oh I thought this was kind of an amusing anecdote. One of the craft-themed FB pages I follow asked a question over the weekend, 'Who would play you in the movie of your life?'. I read it out loud and pondered it for a second before deciding to type 'Tatum O'Neal' into the comments. Without missing a beat, Russell says, 'Cyndi Lauper.' OK, first of all, he gets major props for being aware of who Cyndi Lauper is, because he is not a music fan at all. Second, I took it as a huge compliment because I admire Cyndi's colourful individuality and wackiness.
We had some real steamy, rainy afternoons. It's not uncommon for a late afternoon/early evening thunderstorm to crop up in this kind of weather.
I hope I can get to these before the birds do.
That's a teensy snail on a branch, inside a water droplet that's reflecting my house. We have a lot of snails in our yard of varying sizes. I know they are a pest but I do like them. I always think of the lyrics to the Donovan song, 'There is a mountain': "The lock upon my garden gate's a snail, that's what it is".
And another droplet pic showing that leaf in the background.
Droplets on the CD windspinner.
Driftwood & foreign coin hanging.
Found inside one of the many fortune cookies we got over 4th of July. Hmmmmm
I started a new colouring book called 'Out of This World Designs', using my new set of gel pens. Also used were Prismacolour pencils and rhinestones.
Liz had to go and mention that she made blueberry crisp, and I marched into the kitchen to make one too. It was yummy. Soooo very yummy.
We haven't had many decent sunsets so far but one night revealed a lovely half moon and sunset.
