Not much has been going on around here, still very, very hot out. In the last fifteen days we've had ONE day under 110 and it was 109. Been up to 115 a couple of days. By middle of next week though it is supposed to cool off, one day predicted to be ONLY 100. Sure hope so. When we get up around 6 a.m. it has been 90+ already, the coolest it's been at night for a long time. And next week we are supposed to get some rain. I met my girlfriend for lunch the other day and after when I got to the car it was so hot I couldn't open it with out using my blouse to hold the handle. The steering wheel was super hot too. UGH
Another picture of the big Sphere just a half block off The Strip. People are complaining about it interrupting the flow of traffic 'cause cars slow down (and some stop) to watch it. Also in the strip area a lot of the streets are getting repaved for the Formula One race in November, Guess pavement has to be super smooth. So that has been a mess, glad we can stay away from that area.I happened to be looking out the kitchen window when I saw a furry tail go under our shed?? To furry to be a rat. Stood there for a while and this little kitty peaked out. The minute I moved it went back under. That was a couple of days ago and haven't seen it since.
Been keeping busy with a puzzle. My neighbor got it from his daughter and he wants to fix it so he can frame it. They asked me if I would do it for them. So I'm working on it now. It is very different to put together.
I building it on a cutting mat so he can transfer it to something stable to take it to his house to glue and coat it. So the design on the cutting mat is distracting. I did the easy part first of course.
The is very little difference in the colors of the pieces left and they are the weirdest shapes I've ever run across. Makes it a challenge to do it. Hope to finish it in a couple of days.
Then I'm going to try something new. Went out and bought a Diamond Dotz kit. The cheapest one I could find. Not sure I'll be able to do because of the way my hands shake. But going to try. Just the butterfly gets the little "diamond dot" pieces put on it. There are 28 different colors of the dots.
Some of the colors. You get a pen type thing, add wax to the tip of it and then pick up the "diamond dot" and place it on the canvas. The canvas has a sticky surface that the dots hopefully stick to. It might be fun. It might be a challenge and it might just end up in the trash.
Did any of you see on Facebook the one Jenny Sheppard's mother did. It was huge and beautiful. That's what got me wondering if I could do it.
