I have decided that I have a great sense of figuring out when the hottest week of the summer is going to be and planning my vacation on that very week. Last year 105 degrees in Missouri this year 95 degrees Lake Erie. You know it’s hot when Lake Erie looks like a giacantic pond…
As always my family and I wait to the last minute to find somewhere to stay. We had decided that the best and most convenient place to go was up Lake Erie because it is only about an hour drive from home and we could take the dogs. So of course yours truly gets to be the travel agent and find somewhere to stay. I have to say I did an amazing job finding a little cottage with an amazing lake view but I didn’t realize that there was no air conditioning! So just a note about the Turner family we would all rather be cold than hot. The only Turner who had a really hard time was Libby Lou our English bulldog. Thank goodness for frozen towels and oscillating fans! We always knew where Libby was because of her breathing. The poor thing panted so hard she was horse one night. I told mom and dad that I think that we all felt like breathing like her but knew that it wasn’t appropriate to drool and hang your tongue out of our mouths. She made it through like the rest of us and enjoyed the couple of evenings that it cooled off.
I can’t believe that is was a week ago already I am finally getting out of vacation mode. This week I have spent rearranging the shop hopefully next week I can start concentrating on Country Living Fair projects. Got new fabric in too along with some new patterns… more blogs to come I will keep you updated!
P.S. Hope you enjoy some pictures I took along the way I am super excited how the turned out so artsy... its the camera not the user!
