Can't believe my eyes..

Or should I say, why didn't I stay home? The weather is hot, not unlike most every where in the States, and people are rude or cranky. Is it really necessary to slap a small child in the middle of a retail store...or any where for that matter? Does anyone need to be loud and unruly (children and parents alike) while reeking havoc at the local convenience store...havoc as in pulling items from the shelves and walking away? Granted these actions did distract me from the new and lovely Country Homes Magazine (that's right it's back and it can be yours for a mere $12.99) and the uncertainty of the color choice for the outside of our home...after all it's been the same color for 30 years, why change now? And yet, it was all a little unbelievable for my eyes today.

On a lighter note...I can't believe this recent garden visitor allowed me to take several photos. Do you suppose he looked at me and said "I can't believe my eyes"?

My eyes are ready for reading or stitching...how about yours?

Or never put off till tomorrow what you can do today...isn't that what the saying is? Thinking the summer was work free, I've been strolling thru the days as though I have all the time in the world and can "get to it tomorrow". After all, school doesn't resume until mid August, right? And besides, with a multitude of outdoor home repairs that are quite noisy, how better to spend time off than shopping (no, not retail), lunch or coffee with family and friends. Way too much noise around here to stitch or read, too wet or hot to garden...so why not just have fun and leave everything till tomorrow!? Sad to say, I've been asked to sub the rest of the month and possibly summer. Oh how I wished there had been a little more stitching, reading and gardening...

Not to worry, I've managed to add to my book collection and picked up another wonderful Statue of Liberty, which I was assured "not made in China...possibly France". LOL

A few stitches after work each day should finish this newly started project.
