Oh boy was it hot this weekend.
Saturday I was all 'yay, it feels so nice' and by Sunday afternoon I had to put the AC on due to my hands and wrists swelling and aching. (The arthritis symptoms I experience are terrible in hot weather). Isn't it crazy that it was so hot? Isn't it crazy that too much of a good thing could be wrong?
The dogwood trees in our backyard are about to bloom, for that I am truly grateful. I had many at our old house and am quite pleased we have them here as well. I also have a resident Mr and Mrs brown headed cowbird couple that are adorable. Sometimes they eat at the bird feeder and sometimes they are standing on the ground eating stray seeds that have fallen down from the bird feeder.
I did a bit of watercoloring and sketching over the weekend. It was good to be returning to art in some form or another. My husband did major gardening work on Saturday then was achy on Sunday! I did my weekly laundry chores and cleaning the house.
I'm really into salad eating (BIG salad) which goes along with hot weather. I have high hopes I can walk Frodo this morning before the hot weather continues for the last day today, he is like me and dislikes being hot. By Wednesday, I will be telling you how cold it is outside and wintry like bemoaning the cold spring season once more.
I have no knitting photos, but imagine me languishing on that never-ending afghan. Optimistically I want it done by the end of this week. Let's see if that happens. I have one whole skein left and the tail end of another skein that is nearly finished. The end is so close!!
How was your weekend? Was it hot for you? How are your spring flowers coming along?
