The weatherman said on TV this morning that we're under a heat advisory, today. Hmmmp, I guess that means the lawn ISN'T going to get mowed, again! Drat's, cuz I was so looking forward to getting outside and mowing it. NOT! Hah Hah Honestly, it really does need it, and I've my Privets and Forsythia bushes that definitely need a desperate trim job, too. But, I refuse to go out in this heat, to do anything more than keep Bailey company when he needs to go outside. To think, a few weeks ago I was wondering WHERE oh WHERE this type of weather was...now it's here...and I don't much care for it. I am not a fan of heat and humidity. Blah Blah Blah!!! Waiting for Fall to arrive. Tee Hee
My stitching has been poorly neglected the past couple of days. Boo Hoo I am hoping to make up for that this evening though, when I can sit down and make some headway again. My WIP got a fresh "pressing" this morning, so that I could share my progress to date. And this is where I am at...
East and West are about ready to come together...just one little section to fill in now. Then I'll need to go back and fill in those "a stitch here and a stitch there" area's that I missed or had just decided to put off stitching until "later". And then finally will come all of the outline detail. I am looking forward to that part, and watching this piece really come together. What a difference the outline/backstitch detail will make. As I've said before, this is such a beautiful design to stitch.
I do hope all of the dad's out there had a most wonderful Father's Day. Mr. Birdman did receive call's from his darling daughter's, and I took him out for supper at his favorite sit down restaurant and then headed to the Lake, another favorite place of his to visit. He was happy, and since this was HIS day, I was happy that he was happy. Tee Hee Here he is, enjoy a cuppa-cuppa before his dinner...
Sad as it is, it looks as if my peonies and roses are just about done blooming for the year. Just like those gorgeously fragrant lilacs, they just never ever last long enough. Boo Hoo Hoo Here are what they looked like, in their prime...
Those peonies are always so fragrant...I can't help myself but to whiff away till my hearts content. I'll need to be sure to get a few more whiff's in before their completely wasted. I just bet the neighbor's think I'm a little bit looney! Nah, they probably bend over and whiff their pretties too.
Since the weather's turned as nice as it has, we've gone off to the Lake several times now. As a matter of fact, we spent a good deal of time there on Monday. It was beautiful. We found a shaded spot and plunked ourselves down, and stayed there. There was a nice cool breeze coming off the Lake...couldn't of been more perfect. I could of stayed even longer than we did. It was amazing just how many other's spent the day their sailing and fishing or just taking in the site's.
Sweet little Baby Geese
A couple of guy's literally "hanging" out. Hah Hah Never in a million year's, would you get me up there doing that!!!

(notice the sailboats to the left)
Trying to get the best catch of the day
Overlooking the Lake~what a fantastic view they have
I do hope everyone is enjoying some beautiful weather, whether it be too hot or even a little nippy, make the best of it that you can, each and every single day.Sharon
