For some reason, I thought the flowers on this stamp were roses until I stamped it. I am not sure if it was a trick of my eyes or my mind or just a case of being a bit extra distracted right now. I like poppies a lot and was happy to realize that is what they were, it just took me a bit by surprise as I was coloring them in. In high school, I had a friend whose mom had a gorgeous garden of irises and poppies and let me take a bouquet home one day, I always think of her when I see poppies.
It has finally cooled down here! I am so happy. I have been able to actually get somethings done. June had 16 days of 90+ degree weather. That is just not normal or ok. I really hope that this month is better, but it doesn’t seem like it normally works that way. Fall better figure out how to get here soon is all I can say!
Have I told you that I bought a new set of colored pencils? I thought I really needed to expand the color selection that was open to me and so I made the plunge. I am now using Prismacolor watercolor colored pencils and I am liking them quite a bit. I am not exactly sure how to share what colors I am using on each project, but I am sure that with my husbands help we will come up with a good solution.
Doesn’t it though? It really is a weakness of mine. I realized when I was having problems eating sugar that it was the one thing that I was really having a hard time without. I would freeze bananas and make them into a passable treat, but it wasn’t quite the same. When I was little I really couldn’t eat ice cream, I don’t remember exactly why I just remember it not feeling fair.
This fox has the right idea! I think floating in the water with a drink in hand would be lovely. I made a really yummy sparkling lemonade last week that would go perfectly. My husband has been taking advantage of store sales and we ended up with a case of lemon-lime seltzer that I am trying to use up. My first thought was to use it in Jello but I am kind of hopeless at making Jello. So, instead of homemade lemonade has been the answer, except the store was out of lemons this week.
