Like everybody else, I wish every day was a weekend.
Saturday, it was 108* out. I watered outside in the corners of the flowerbeds that the sprinklers don’t get early in the morning and then I tried to do a few things around the yard, but I was soon driven into the shade, and then into the house.
We went out for dinner, but it was miserable and all I wanted was to eat something quick and cold and go back home. I even offered to have ice cream for supper and they wouldn’t go for it.
But, Sunday morning, I woke to thunder about 3:30 and took the dog out. It was sprinkling and it rained on and off for a while and then it quieted down. About 5:30, it started and it rained good and steady for a good while. If only we’d been more sure, we wouldn’t have watered on Saturday at all. But, you can never tell in Texas.
Anyway, that made for a much more pleasant day and it was only 75 when we went out around noon. We did some shopping and then we were back home again because the humidity rose as the day warmed up to about 95* and it was very sticky. Chores and a pineapple upside down cake and overall, I think it was a pretty good weekend.
Our shopping was for vacation clothes, underwear mostly. There was this whole long thing where they tried to get us a sale price on some underwear and people were talking about women’s panties over the intercoms back and forth and it was long and miserable and I don’t know who wanted to crawl under the counter more, me or Sydney (yes, it was her underwear) and there were lines at all the counters and a family behind us patiently waiting. But, we smiled and persevered and I told the lady I really just wanted to pay and go, but they insisted that they make it right. We ended up saving $5, but I don’t know if it was worth it. Rob said it was like watching something in a sitcom where they ask the price of underwear over the loud speaker.
And, I cut hexagons. Hundreds and hundreds of hexagons. I was cutting them 6 and 8 at a time in stacks. The next border needs between eight and nine hundred of them. Holy hole punch, Batman!
That should keep me busy for a while, huh?
Everybody have a great Monday. It’s quilt guild tonight. The speaker is Liz Porter of Fons and Porter. I plan to get there early enough for a good seat.
