~SWEET PINK ADIRONDACK CHAIRS~
One of the things I promised myself I would do during the spring and summer months was to repaint my suffering Adirondack Chairs. I blogged about this earlier in the year and had every intention of giving all three a fresh new coat of my favorite sugary pink paint! Not sure just what it was that kept me from finishing this project...probably just unfocused. Secretly I do believe I
might have have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).
Either that or I've got too many irons in the fire.
~VIEW FROM OUR NEW FRENCH DOORS~
Anyway, even with the incredible heat I managed to get up early enough over several days to get my repaint job done. I love morning hours and would just love to go outside and sit for a spell and just read. But...at 9AM today the temps here in Oklahoma were already 98 degrees. It's suppose to be 112 today...
~THE PALEST OF PINKS~
I hate it! I ran up to LOWE'S yesterday around 5PM and just breathing the HOT AIR made me feel sick. While I was there I noticed all the plants and shrubs offered for sale were dying and marked to nearly nothing for quick sale.
~POORLY SURVIVING PLANTS~
Early each morning I take my Ferns and other flowering plants outside for a bit of real sun. By noon each day I return them to our garage in hopes they will survive...
Around 7:30AM I was outside hand-watering (we're on water-ration here in Oklahoma!) when I felt something tickle my hip. At first I thought it was just an itch or something until I felt it again a little higher up...
Totally trying NOT to FREAK OUT, I grabbed at my jean shorts for a little peek at just what was BOTHERING ME...
I peeled back my waistband just a tiny little bit and all of a sudden a big fat HUMONGOUS GRASS HOPPER flew right into my face.
Now...for all you earthy-peeps this was no doubt not a big deal. But, I'm not one of you and I don't claim to be. I'm a self-confessed wimp! And, just for the record I'm not embarrassed to tell you I don't like:
or anything else that might threaten my life...
Hot or not, tomorrow I'm wearing long pants!
Hope your Tuesday is awesome!
Love to you...
