surviving the heat












how i survived the heat this weekend:

slept in on saturday morning

cleaned house in my pjs with the air turned way down

went to the movies saturday night to see ramona & beezus with my daughter, dil and 2 grandaughters
ate extra-large servings of chocolate yogurt (not the low-fat kind either)

took bella & zoe to the river to swim

spent hours in the art room creating in photoshop

all in all, a pretty cool weekend!!

Congratulations on your book, Julie. I know how exciting that can be. My poetry book has been out since mid-May. Of course, I'm not going to make the NY Times Best Seller List - I'm just glad to have sold 29 thus far.

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, doing some fun things and even some constructive ones. Not bad at all.

Sounds like you had quite the lovely and relaxing (for the most part, minus the cleaning!) weekend. Hope your week is just as wonderful. :)

PS added you to my sidebar as your blog/art are an inspiration and always have been to me.

Nite nite!

I've been closed up in the house most of the week. It's the only way to beat the heat here. Our temps were right around 100 all week. Hope this coming week brings us both some refreshing breezes.

These photos are lovely. The way you layered them is very clever. Sounds like a pretty good weekend.

Sounds like you had a busy weekend??
Did you like the movie Ramona and Beezus?
A friend of mine took her daughter to see it and she said they cried halfway through the movie.

thanks everyone!!

cindy, yes we did go see the ramona movie. i cried a bit at the end. i thought the dad in the movie was just adorable and it made me miss my dad so much. the movie is really worth seeing, particularly for anyone who read the books as a child or read it to their daughters.

Julie, these photo creations are cool and lovely! I particularly love the sheet music behind the flowers. I am a sheet-music-o-holic. :-)
