The above flowers, I think they are a form of daisy, stopped blooming a month or so ago. But now they’re blooming once again. I really love these flowers.
I know I’m having a senior moment that I can’t think of the name of them.
The other painting has not arrived. I guess it is being held up somewhere along the line. Hopefully today sometime it will get here.
Then tomorrow my SIL will be working on securing the fence for the pupsters. Thank goodness.
My word, but it is hot! I guess it seems so much hotter here due to the high humidity.
What I would give right now to live near an ocean and be able to walk there and dunk my feet in. Or a lake for that matter. I’ve always wanted to live near a lake.
I don’t do much inside because just moving about causes one to sweat, even with the air conditioning on.
Yesterday, from early morning on, Abi cried and whimpered because a fly had gotten inside. I try very hard to get doors closed quickly so they don’t get in. But sometimes they still get past me.
She is pitiful and jumps into the bath tub and feverishly scratches the surface. I don’t know what purpose that serves. But that’s what she does.
And if I even pick up the phone, she starts whimpering. She is a sight. I think some days this is like having a small child at home. A very picky spoiled child.
I love that pupster, but she does wear me out. And the older she gets, the worse she gets. I guess like all of us.
Charlie, also afraid of the fly, got as close to me as he could get and trembled. It wasn’t just a slight tremble. He was shaking like something was about to eat him.
No matter how I try to console them, they are certain the fly is still inside somewhere. Even if I’ve killed it or shooed it back outdoors.
Some of you brought up the idea that I could sew quilts on a sewing machine. But really, the part of making quilts I probably liked the most was sewing by hand.
I feel like I have enough quilts now, and I am just a retired quilter. Both my daughters got various quilts that I made, and will get the rest eventually.
I don’t want to start buying fabric again. I gave away all I had when I moved to this apartment.
I know I would not really enjoy sewing by machine. I never did enjoy doing that. So I doubt I’d change now.
I enjoyed sitting in my favorite chair and sewing or quilting. It was a tranquil time for me.
Many things I’d like to be doing, but the heat keeps me from starting. I mopped a bit yesterday. I cleaned my Keurig and did a little dusting.
I figure I’m the only person here, so if the place isn’t as clean as I’d like, it is good enough till the heat dissipates somewhat.
I climbed up on the first step of the step stool I don’t know how many times the other day trying to get the painting down lower.
I’d pound in a few nails and think I had it, only to find one side was crooked.
And that about wore me out. Can you imagine?
Don’t stay out in this heat too long!
