Waiting out the heat


Hot enough for ya? I feel like I've barely left the house except to get in the car and go someplace else that has air conditioning. I'm sooo done with summer right now and ready for my favorite season - FALL.  I wish my deck plants still looked like this, but they just fried in the nasty heat we've had all summer and are barely hanging on with twice daily watering.


I have been working on a big project but have been both busy and lazy, so there is not much to show just yet. I'm painting this:

 
I'm nearly done with it but my youngest is home from college for a week, so I have everything on hold so we can actually eat dinner at the table while she's here. With this cabinet emptied out, my kitchen was a tad cluttered. :)   Forgive me if I don't share photos of that, I took pics of some pretties instead.  Cookie?



 

Have a great week, and stay cool!

Oh my goodness, I can't believe your painting that beautiful hutch. But I can't wait to see the after pics. Mmm. Those cookies look so good. Have a nice day!

I know what you mean, we have had 18 days in a row of triple digit temps. It was the hottest, driest July on record for us, and it looks like August is not going to be any better. Everything is dead and ugly, and the heat is just exhausting. I have soooo many projects "on hold" waiting for cooler weather.
Just enjoy your time with your girls whenever you get a chance!
I am so in love with your chest and mirror, I think you should consider it a successful summer if you don't do another thing!

I feel your pain :)

Whenever I get in a slump like this, I panic and think that I've lost my mojo. Ha ha.

Fall is my favourite season too.

Hey Tracy! Haven't seen you around in a while.

I hope you are keeping well and your absence is not because of something awful :(
