I'm calling this The Summer of Exhaustion. I am almost always tired what with Cairo's constant coughing. He is doing much better on his medication, and we are heading to the vet on Monday to re-evaluate what he is on. He sleeps about 5 hours straight now, but that isn't enough for me. Lack of sleep coupled with my daughter and her boyfriend being here for 10 days, friends for dinner, more overnight guests, plumbing problems, and cancelled flights, I'm pretty bleary-eyed.
The hot weather has been relentless. The central air is running constantly, and my garden is drying up. We are having our first real rain in weeks today, so that is good. The fireflies like the hot, dry weather -- there are hundreds of them overnight. I love them.
I should be looking toward my autumn shows -- the stores are sticked for back-to-school buying -- but I just can't seem to do it. Something to do with my time management skills, or my perception of time and how much I can get finished within a deadline. I think its hereditary, since my sister and my daughter suffer from the same thing. I'm hoping that turning the calendar page to August will jump start some creativity . . . One can always hope.
My rug hooking guild, the Peconic Ruggers, is hosting a hook in on Saturday, August 13, 2016, 10 am to 3 pm. It is open to all. Bring something to work on, something to show, and your lunch. We'll also be talking about our upcoming rug show to be held in the Naugles Barn during the Hallockville Fall Festival, September 10 & 11. We will transform the barn into a rug wonderland, and several vendors will be selling rug hooking supplies. It's a wonderful show and you should come see it!
