After an unseasonably cool (but delightful) start to our summer, the summer-like weather has returned … with a vengeance. Still I was hopeful that we’d be spared the 100+ degree weather … but yesterday we broke that barrier … in fact, our little village recorded the highest temperature in the St. Louis Metro area yesterday. Here’s a screen print I captured yesterday:
I didn’t get in any time in the sewing room yesterday, and I have to say that I’m not the least bit sorry … after DD got off work, we ended up going to the pool … a perfect day for some pool time (see above). By the time I got home, it was too late and I was too tired (albeit a good tired ).
I’m not sure that I’m going to get much sewing time today. My neighbor told me about a quilt shop in a small town about 35 minutes north, so we’re going to go check it out. DH and I will be going out for dinner with her and her husband this evening, so there might be a very brief window of time for working on that storm at sea top this afternoon.
We don’t have anything special planned this weekend … and I have to say that I’m looking forward to that! Now that I’m “working” again – ha! – I could use a bit of a break. DH and I talked briefly about getting away – anywhere – this weekend, but since we’re now just 2 weeks from our trip to Hilton Head (woo hoo!), we decided to make this weekend a staycation instead.
Hope you all have a fabulous Friday … and a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
