First we had this...
which turned into this...
The violent storm delivered rain and a lot of wind to to Connecticut yesterday. We lacked rain here for many weeks so it was a "good thing" ...though it looked like a wall of water.
Since it has been incessantly hot, staying indoors has been pretty much obligatory. There is always plenty to do so it is not unpleasant. (I am most grateful for air conditioning and worry about those who don't have it.)
My friend and I are making little chests...out of match boxes. We have made other things from match boxes in the past...ornaments and boxes with little illustrations in them. This is a little more complicated.
We were inspired by a chest
we saw here at Alpha Stamps.
I have since added little seashells
to the drawers and some charms.
There is stack of books I want to read and dolls to make and so many other things to do. (Still going to the gym five days a week, too.) So summer is passing by despite our many heatwaves and dry conditions. The rain was very welcome. We are "stay-cationing" and going on occasional day trips when we can.
How is your summer going? Are you staying busy? Traveling? They say "Christmas is for kids" but I think summers are, too. They are not as much fun as they once were...and they sure are hotter!
Hope the summer is treating you well!
enjoy the day!
