Summer Finally Hit

Today was the first day where it got hot enough to do a little of this


and a whole lot of this


it’s been so cool that our apricots still aren’t ripening
This time last year they had a tinge of orange… not this year
On Tuesday I hurt my back
Not sure how but it hurts
That’s the down side
The up side… Well there is maybe one…
It doesn’t hurt to much when I sit or lay
So with my computer chair lowered I can sit without too much pain
Which means I can distract myself with some scrapping… good up side… right??!!
So today I scrapped this page, using Cosmo Cricket’s Circa 1934 papers


the journaling


a gorgeous Such Sweet Tierney button for an ‘o’


Some punch love


and some cut up dyed doily love Smile


It’s cooled off now
It’s poured with rain
It’s blown a gale
It’s now still and ALMOST quiet
It’s meant to be warm again tomorrow, before cooling off for the new week
It’s only 2 days till Dave goes back to work
It’s a shame about that!

Pin It Now!
