I know! Hard to believe I'm back again already--LOL! We had a really creepy sky yesterday that reminded me of tornadoes, but it blew past us before we even saw any rain.
Today--back to the usual...
...hanging around 90 degrees, sticky, with the possibility of scattered thunderstorms. That's the prediction for the next three days.
I don't have any new bookmarks to show for the Artist's Playroom challenge. I hardly have any of my own bookmarks left because I have given almost all of them away--LOL! But here are a few so that I can participate this week--if I'm not too late already. :)
Karma is snoozing by her toy box.
Too muggy, even for her, this morning.
Well, the long awaited party platter arrived...
Obviously not strong enough for what I wanted to use it for, so I am going to have to go through all the red tape to get a refund. Oh well. Such is life. I guess I'll order another sturdy red food tray. Like Leah said, it doesn't have to fit the exact size of those palettes. I just need a strong buffer.
Holly came by with my library books!! Eight new books to read as many as I can in four weeks. The top one is an inter-library loan and due in four weeks, so that's when somebody will be back. What fun, eh?
And I forgot to show you the cool double-walled cup Leah gave me! It has a screw on cover and a hard straw that come with it. Cool! Perfect for my raspberry tea!
And I also forgot to show you another one of the weird purchases. I love the huge metal scoop (I almost said shovel) that I got for my cat slave duties, but the slots are quite wide and little bits are always falling through. So, former pet shop assistant manager me--I ordered a corner litter scoop...
...that is actually made for reptile sand--LOL!
It has smaller holes and they're usually fairly sturdy--so I thought I'd give this a go once in a while to get the smaller pieces out...as an attentive to detail cat slave would do, of course. ;)
Just a quick pop-in. I am obviously feeling better than I was. Things are on the upswing!
Oh, and BIG FAT DUH!! I can test the yeast in some warm sugar water! I truly am completely out of the swing of baking from scratch. I should have thought of that! Leave it to Leah to remind me of what I already know--LOL! So, think of me smiling as l test the yeast today...and make a smoothie...and read... :):)
