Not much to talk about here, just the heat, but I do have a couple things to share.
Our little town is lucky enough to have an art school.
The Bay School has amazing classes for truly talented artists, and some
fun classes for beginners and the untalented. I signed up for the latter. :)
The class was "paint an abstract sea life". Perfect! Luckily we had enough time to complete
2 paintings. We used both watercolors and oil paint sticks. The 1st is jellyfish, though my
large jellyfish looks more like a giant crab. Hmm... but think abstract. The 2nd,
more obviously recognizable as a sea horse.
I got a shot of some of the masterpieces drying on the floor. I loved how
each person's turned out so differently.
So much fun on a hot summer day that I signed up for a fun "collage class" for next week.
Here is the instructor's sample.
I don't think I'm sure mine will turn out like this also. :)
I spied our new neighbor "Boss" in the field, so got a little closer to take a picture.
(Sorry, long skinny phone picture)
Then I spied Doyle creeping up behind me.
I didn't get any closer so as not to lead him into temptation, lol.
Check out the garden daily & noted that the Pablano peppers were doing well.
& then I spied the guy on the left (what looks like rice) Damn hornworms.
Bad enough they nearly devastated our tomatoes, now they've moved to the peppers.
A friend said the white things on them are wasp eggs and can be beneficial. Yeah well,
he's eating everything in the meantime, so he had to go.
Fresh basil in the middle.
We enjoy our veggies fresh, but also do some sauce making and dehydrating.
These are sprinkled with some Maui onion salt, & are outrageously delicious.
I'm planning on doing a "Hot August Giveaway"....so stay tuned.
Enjoy the rest of your week! What are you up to?
