It is very quiet at my house right now. Hubby had to go to the church for a meeting with one of the staff. The dogs are sound asleep and the garbage collection has already passed by our street. All I hear is the hum of the computer.
The past couple of days have been nice albeit a bit busy. I have been doing quite a bit of knitting/crocheting along with reading and journaling. Hubby had his specialist appointment yesterday and is going to be scheduled for a minor procedure to find out what is going on with him. All his Drs are baffled because he shows no signs or symptoms of anything. His blood work is wonderful and he has had this physical sign for over a year and no one was concerned back when I pointed it out to them in a hospital setting. Go figure. Keep the prayers coming please.
I did complete the puzzle I started a couple of weeks ago. It actually was finished last week and I have another one already set up and am working on it. The one I am working on now is a bit more complicated. It is 1000 pieces and they are TINY!
Everyday I try and work on each project I have going. It is so funny to look at my 'to do' list in my journal and each day there is listed, scarf, sock, shawl, puzzle, sweater. I have finished one project and started another and will update that on Sunday's YOP.
Reading at bedtime is my favorite way to fall asleep. I quite reading on my Kindle at night, as the light seemed to interfere with my REM sleep. Now I read a REAL book each night. Last night I finished:
It was really a nice book for bedtime. It gave me a break from my Maggie Sefton books that I have been reading. That series will be picked back up tonight. I only have 1.5 books left in that series to read and then I have another 3 book series to read. I like series books. I fall in love with the characters and they seem to come alive as I get deeper into each book. Kind of like watching a soap opera LOL.
Have any of you been experiencing some of the wonderful summer fruit this year? We have been having scrumptious watermelon, cantaloupe, red cherries, yellow mangoes, strawberries, nectarines and peaches. The nectarines and peaches need to ripen a bit once I get them home but they are so yummy. I noticed blueberries are on sale this week, so will be going to get some of those too. Blueberries are so yummy in salads as are strawberries and mangoes! The fruit keeps me away from eating junk sweets.
Our weather is really heating up this week. They are predicting 115 by Thursday! Hopefully, our monsoons will come to us pretty soon so we can get some much needed rain. We have been in drought conditions for almost 21 years now. Many of our fireworks for the 4th have been cancelled due to the dry conditions and our high risk of fires. Even many of our camping areas in the mountains have been closed do to fire risk.
Time for me to go and do a bit of my 'to do' list. I am thinking pool time may come early today. It is already almost 100 and only 9:30 in the morning.
Until next time....................happy crafting!
