It's HOT!

It's been brutally hot, humid and all around miserable, yuck! Just a few months ago I remember everyone around here complaining "oh I want to cold to go away, it's too cold, it's been too much this winter". PHEWY, to that crap, I'll take cold winter weather any day of the week instead of this sweating your butt off just to put on a t-shirt climate we're having. I guess the only good thing is that I haven't heard the dreaded words "HUNKER DOWN" from the new media, so no hurricanes yet.

I'm still counting and cleaning this I wish could go faster but with the heat I can only work in the garage for two hours a nite before I need to drink a gallon of water and shower off, so progress has been slow.

I have my list of item to order and am getting ready to do that before the end of the week, YES! Once I get the order place, I'm putting the loom inside the house YES! Then I plan on warping the board and getting some practice on the loom. I've downloaded some drafts from an am getting itchy to start weaving something, it's been too long without any weaving in the house and it just ain't right LOL.., plus there is a posting that shall go un-named (Benita) about some holiday that is coming up really fast, so I guess if I'm going to get some gifts done it's got to be soon.

Bring on the heat......I love it! After all, we do have a/c so it isn't as bad as all that! Okay, the pool helps...
Sorry the work is going slow, it would be too humid to work outside for long on it. Just think of all the weaving you will be doing very soon!

I'm just loving the heat because I know winter is just around the corner!

I'm with you on disliking the heat!! I would much rather be cold any day of the week. Plus, I like to ski so that goes along with the love of the snow.

I know what you mean about weaving. I haven't thrown the shuttle in a while now, and I'm missing it.

What are you thinking about weaving for Christmas or does that need to remain a secret?

This is the first summer in all the years I've been in NH that I've had my fill of heat. Winter often seems like something to dread....but I look forward to cooler temperatures!

I just placed a yarn order too! Must be something about September approaching that makes us want to get back to the looms!

Sounds like you've made excellent progress on your loom!

There used to be a weatherman in Charlotte NC, who would tell us that the good thing about hurricanes is that they would stir up the atmosphere and break our annual heat waves. At least I think that's a good thing.
