Heat Wave

It's finally our turn to be miserably hot so I have spent the last two days holed up in the A/C for the most part. I'm heading to the Cape for the weekend so it should be a bit cooler there with an ocean breeze so I hope by the time I get back, this yucky heat will be gone. They've been promising thunderstorms for the last two days but we haven't had anything to cool things down. I know I shouldn't whine because it's nowhere near as bad as it's been out west but it makes me so sloggy and I feel like I've wasted some of my precious vacation time sitting indoors.

However I do have something to show for my time. I've started my SBEBB Redwork Exchange piece and kitted up the piece I am going to stitch for my fall Yahoo group exchange. And I've made some progress on HIH Halloween Medley. Sorry the photo is so lousy but we haven't really had bright sunshine over the last few days.

I am being good and only taking exchange projects to stitch on at the Cape plus the Halloween piece. I may bring Dainty Housewren as I would like to see more progress on her. And I am bringing two sock projects. I always bring way more than I'll ever hope to work on but you never know right? See you Monday!

And finally for Missy, a Cowboy photo from a few weeks ago. I'm taking him to a pet motel while I am away. I'm feeling traumatized already to be without him for so long!

Have fun at the Cape! Cowboy is such a cutie!

Yay! A picture of Cowboy! He is really cute. And he looks so happy. Hopefully he hadn't just finished destroying something (I know how that is).

Hope you stay cool and enjoy your time away!

It's really hot in Vancouver too. I never thought I'd see a day when I wanted to go into work on a weekend (for the air con), but I honestly contemplated it today! Your pup is a sweetheart!
