Staying Inside This Weekend

So far this weekend, I've completed the 10 anti-ouch pouches I committed to make this month for the Quilt Club.  

Work on the cul-de-sac is complete, but traffic is blocked off while the concrete cures.

The noise of road construction equipment has been replaced by the roar of power boats drag racing.  This is the weekend of the annual Lake Fest in our community.  Even though we are several blocks from the water, our windows are closed, and the ac is running, the roar of the biggest boats can be clearly heard inside.  The inn keepers, restaurant owners and other merchants are ecstatic.  The rest of us, at least those of us not into boat racing, have learned to cope with noise, street closures and inaccessible parks. 

Truth be known, here’s the real reason I’m pretty much staying inside these days.  If the yard chores and doggy walks don’t happen early, they usually won’t happen at all.  This is altogether a great time to be indoors sewing and fall can't be that far away.

My sister lives in Austin and has been complaining about how hot it is there. Get in a few stitches for me this weekend ... no stitching here as I've had the grands for the weekend. No complaints here.

So you have got the heat bottled up out there! We have had much lower temps this summer....high humidity and lots of rain and flooding here. It has been a strange season for us.
