I have been in a bit of a downer for the last several weeks. But am now slowly snapping out of it. The last couple of months were hard. But I am plodding along.
Summer has arrived in Las Vegas. Yesterday was 111 - at 10:30 last night it was still 104! Bill went out to walk a little this morning at 4:30 and said he didn't go far as it was even too hot for him. Today in the area we live in the very lowest part of the valley on the far east side the high will be 115 or more. The strip will be around 112/113. If it would cool down at night it wouldn't be so bad. The AC runs day and night. The humidity is in the low teens and there has been a breeze. But in a couple of days we might get some tiny chance of rain, so it will get cooler, humidity will rise and the winds will pick up some again. I hope we will be under one of the rain clouds. Just for a change.We are still getting visits from the bunnies and the road runner. I like to watch him running. Bill said he saw a coyote walking down the street in front of him this morning. It took off when it saw him.
I have started sewing, making Christmas Tree wall hangings [yes hangings, plural or more.] They are challenging and fun to make. And I sure have enough Christmas material.
|this is only part of what I have|
Then they all have to be cut at angles and then sewn together. I managed to sew about five of them together wrong...grrr...won't make that mistake again. This photo is actually the second one I am making.
So had to buy a new box. Wish there were a few more of the bigger ones. Tho I did the small 150 piece one I have marked in red and took me a couple of days just for the part on the top that is boxed in red. The pieces were all the same color and most of them fitted into several other pieces, until I went to add a new piece and it wouldn't fit. It ended up I had one piece left and one hole for a piece but the one I had didn't fit there. I looked and looked for where I had a wrong piece in - no where. Studies the hole and the piece for a while. Then turned the piece over with picture side down and it fit the hole perfectly...go figure. Did I mention this boxed set was very cheap - only 11 dollars, guess you get what you pay for.
Now I'm working on the 300 piece one of the muffins. I really miss being able to get out in the mornings and walk. Don't want to go to a mall, too many people there and have to use too much gas - which is still around $5.50 here.
