I know I am hot here in Vermont with a long stretch of 90 plus days this week . Absolutely no air is moving. We have one room with an air conditioner in it but other than that we are braving the heat. And then I quit fussing when I see how hard the farmers are working in this heat to get their hay in. I love seeing all the bales of hay on the fields. And I see how hot my fair skinned 14 year old is after working for a few hours at the dairy barn...and I quit complaining. She has been getting up at 5:30 this week just to get her cows ready for her first 4H show this week. It's a little cooler then but not much. I am sweating just sitting here typing. Thank goodness it will turn this weekend.
Computer fixed and much better. I always second guess my ability to know when things aren't right with it and blame it on my lack of knowledge rather than feel for how it's working. Oh well. Maybe my brain is just fried this week....
One for my goals for this summer was to dye a lot of fabrics. I like to dye here in my barn and have myself supplied for the year as far as fabric is concerned. A secondary goal was to practice all of these techniques I have recently learned. And figure out if it is something I would like to use and how to integrate it into what I am doing. So I tried acrylic wash which I was introduced to from Velda Newman.
I would use this again. But wouldn't buy more paint at this time unless I have a 50 percent off coupon!
Had a bad day today. It happens. People just not acting nicely here and need to think of how to handle it tomorrow. I'll just think of my double rainbow from last week instead! Isn't it beautiful?
Happy thoughts, my friends!
