Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was so (and still is) so hot here!
Here are a couple of southern sayings about the heat that will give you a chuckle:
It's so hot, chickens have been laying hard boiled eggs!
It's so hot, I saw two trees fighting over a dog!
However, I still managed to do a little bit this weekend other than nap.
Y'all know how much I love framing pieces of dearly loved fabric. Well, I
decided to add the card that David included nestled into the beautiful flowers
he sent me for our anniversary last month. This is now hanging on the wall
in my dressing room.
I went to Hobby Lobby for a bit on Saturday and found these three flannel
fabrics. I don't know what I will do with them yet, but I thought they were
too cute to pass up.
I found some cute pink and white striped buttons and added some more
embroidery floss to my growing collection.
Stopped at the library. Going to the library on a hot summer day really
takes me back to my childhood. My friend Carolyn and I used to ride our
bikes to the library and fill our bicycle baskets with as many books as
they would hold. Then we would ride home and either go to Carolyn's house
or mine and read all afternoon. Of course, that happened only on the days
we were not at the beach :-)
I am currently reading this book. The House on First Street is a great
non-fiction account of a woman who buys a fixer-upper in the
Garden District of New Orleans and begins renovations right before
Hurricane Katrina. Julia Reed is a fine author and a contributor to
both Vogue and Newsweek.
Renovations are hard enough without a major hurricane and levee
breach! Read it, you will enjoy.
This is my nice cozy crewel covered chair in the family room. It's wide
enough for both Bentley and I to curl up in (Bentley is a bit of a chair hog)
and stay cool inside with a good book.
What did you do over the weekend?
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
