Suffocating heat & humidity and a 14 hour long power outage put a damper on my 3-day weekend thrills. The power went out around 8 p.m. and didn’t return until 10 a.m. this morning. It was kind of fun….for the first couple of hours. I wrote in my visual journal by the light of my camping lanterns and jumbo flashlights. Every door and window up here on my little hill was open wide. After awhile the cat posse retired to the tiled bathroom floor and I took a cold shower then collapsed on my warm bed to read.
Just before sundown I stepped outside to do a little bit of stenciling at my spraypaint station. Nice view, but I do wish these lovely clouds held some cold rain. Yesterday afternoon on my way home I saw an enormous wall of stiff white clouds surrounding the city. Then last night I spotted a few more clouds drift across the moon lit sky. Today more of the same. Plenty of dreamy clouds and hot air, but no rain in sight. Darn.
Enough of my pathetic weather woes, go here NOW and check out the sheer fabulousness that IS Ann Tracy.
Then maybe you’ll want to do a little armchair traveling and head south of the border with John from Mexico Woods. I like to keep track of the off-beat adventures he and his wife keep having. I also like to imagine myself becoming an ex-pat in my retirement years. I’m the only person I know who can’t wait to turn 60.
I very much enjoyed finding THIS artist via Etsy this week. She hasn’t updated since July, but since I dig her art so much I don’t care.
