I am so thrilled that some cool weather has rolled on in….I seriously was at the point where I thought I might do something irrational! The heat we were experiencing was more than intolerable-it was altering not only my personality, but most everyone I’ve met recently! Seems like basically everyone was crying out, “Uncle”! I am just happy that the cooler temps will be around for at least a few days!
I am finally ending the all-consuming porch project! Painting the floor was a piece of cake, although it took two days because it needed two coats. I am now left with the task of painting the finials on the posts and although I enjoy doing it, it is a slow process-a steady hand and good eyes are required. I get a little shaky after painting an hour or so and find the eyestrain causes me not to see correctly. So, I quit and start again later. I do enjoy this type of painting, though.
The other day, while I was working on painting, I caught sight of a butterfly in the periphery. Since my camera was only inside the door, I went in and grabbed it. I took over 200 photos of the beautiful Black Swallowtail Butterfly and was able to capture some good shots.
This weekend is a long one, with many people having off Monday for Labor Day. If you are celebrating, please have a safe and happy weekend!
