I have a confession to make..
Usually after the 4th of July I start to get a little sad because I feel like summer is half over.
Paul, on the other hand, feels that the 4th of July is just the beginning.
This year, I told you all that I am going to savor every moment of summer
and I am doing my best not to think about school supplies, schedules and those dreaded tuition payments.
It has been a great carefree summer so far!
I'm sure many of you can relate
~ it's been Hot Hot Hot in Baltimore.
Today it is supposed to be around 105'.
Needless to say, if it doesnt' involve an inner tube and a splash..
then you can find us inside with the AC full blast.
With much inspiration from my stitching friends,
I had the urge to pick up a cross stitch needle.
My color palette was lacking so I tweaked it a bit.
I forgot how much that I enjoyed doing these.
I lost track of the time and worked on it from start to finish.
and at some point, I lost track of the counting..
There was no cross stitching yesterday since Paul and I took the boat out and swam all day.
I have been known to drag my jewelry supply box and stitch kits to the beach ~ not yesterday,
The bay water is 84' ~ we hardly got out.
The girls did not come, one was working
and the other one said that it was toooooo hot.
The kids from the sailing school across the river sailed to the island.
It's always a little scary to watch them .. some of the kids are so young!!
There were 23 sailboats .. and two instructors on small motor boats.
Years ago, we were on the boat out in the deeper part of the river and we saw one of the sailboats tip over.
The little boy inside fell out and was crying hysterically.
Paul drove over to him to help
and we were yelled at by the sailing instructor for helping.
It got a little confrontational ~
It was no surprise that Paul would help another one.
This time one of the kids got his boat stuck near the rocks
( where all of the snakes live)
There he goes.. on his float
Paul to the rescue!
Poor little guy, not one person from the sailing school tried to help him.
I thought that sailing was team work.
Wouldn't it be cool to be able to go inside!!
There is an address above the door
Which I am assuming that might be the year that it was built.
I think that it needs a mail box
~ wouldn't that be funny.
We are not doing so well with our lighthouse hunt
~ once it cools down a bit we will definitely take some road trips to see some more.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
