Still hot . . . drawing done . . .


It’s still hot out.  Can seem to get some relief from this heat.  This has got to be a record summer for temps.  And rain . . . . heck we’ve hardly had any of that.  ■  Finished a drawing tonight.  I’ll get note cards printed tomorrow and send it out either tomorrow, or Thursday.  Then it’s on to the next drawing.  ■  Aaron called from Kuwait yesterday.  He’s doing fine.  He says the duty is easy.  We talked for about 10 minutes and then got disconnected.  It was good to hear his voice.  ■  Lots going on this summer.  I didn’t think it would be too busy, but I’m wrong.  ■  I planning on insulating and drywalling my garage.  I only have 2 walls to do since one is already done.  I’ve got my Lighthouse Networking Group meeting tomorrow morning.  That means I have to get up early. ■

Dang, but it’s hot!

Will this heat ever let up?  And will we get a decent amount of rain?  Stepping outside it feels like a blast furnace.  Funny, but the dogs don’t seem to mind the heat.  It’s midnight and it’s 84º out.  Too dang hot.

Blues, booze & BBQ . . .


It was hot yesterday.  The temps were up and the music was hot.  Had a few guys over for some jammin’ in the garage.  Some good, fun, music.  A few cold beers and brats on the grill went down well.  Hope to do it again soon.  ■  The hot, dry weather continues here.  It’s 94º out today.  Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 100º.  And do we ever need rain.  Everyone’s grass is brown.  I’m sure there are watering restrictions.  The Fox River is down and I think Fox Lake is down a good couple of feet.  Very strange for this time of year.  ■  Now we’ll have to see if the air conditioner can keep up with it.  ■  Off to work in a bit.

Cary Farmer’s Market . . .


Three digital paintings of our farmer’s market in Cary.  And, yes, I did them.  I’m working on getting them printed in a suitable size.  They do look great framed.

Busy . . . yes and no . . . . .


Busy – yes at home, but no at store.  I’ve only worked a couple of hours this week so far.  That really hurts on the income.  ■  The picture is of the Cary Farmer’s Market held on Sunday mornings during the summer.  Lots of good produce, etc.  ■  Working tomorrow (Saturday).  Sunday maybe some blues, booze, and bbq.  We’ll see.  ■  And I should mention that it’s been HOT!  Driving home from work Holly’s car thermometer showed 111º.  Our new air conditioner for the upstairs isn’t keeping up with the heat.  It’s way too hot.  ■  TFB.
