The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. – Robert Burns
Note to self, 95+ degree heat and humidity at a gajillion percent means that your camera lens will instantly fog up…
Add to all of that, this morning it is raining, and the humidity is still off the charts making big camera photography impossible. So, I am phoning in my “homework” this week… literally. These photos are from my iPhone Xs Max, and Steve has already weighed in on how pitiful they are. No, they are not actually macro photos. Yes, they are a bit blurry. But I hope they convey the obvious joy of the subject.
Bee Joy might just be the most wonderful thing ever! And, these bees are fearless – no flinching, or flying away from my phone all up in their business! You can see that these 99 cent sunflower plants are a HUGE hit! And can I just say – holy cow on the number of blooms? Each plant has easily 2 dozen flowers and buds!
As for my weekend, with a glimpse of “hell on earth” temps this weekend – I spent much of the weekend indoors with the perpetually running AC.
I discovered a new to me mystery series – Maigret. The mysteries are based on the novels written between 1919 and 1922 by Georges Simenon. I binged a bit on them and got “close” on my Early Bloomer. I am having a bit of a “do I have enough yarn” panic, so I put the body on waste yarn, and I will finish the neck and sleeves, and then finish the body and lower ribbing.
I also sewed up another Uniform Tunic Dress – it is almost done, and I just need to ease in the sleeves, which I plan on doing this morning. I have finally mastered sleeve placement with no puckers, but it means taking my time and methodically pinning – with LOTS of pins!
And, that was my weekend complete with my photos.
I hope you had a great weekend. Happy Monday, stay cool and dry!
The weekend was just plain nasty, wasn’t it? And our humidity is still high today. We had one storm last night (and more forecast for today/tonight/tomorrow), and I’m hoping our temps will drop by tomorrow. Impossible to do anything!!
I was disappointed in the humid “air you can wear” this morning, but photos of bees and pollen are always welcome! I do hope you have enough yarn for Early Bloomer! I love your black linen Uniform Tunic Dress and am looking forward to seeing this one in progress.
Love those sweet bees!
I spent the weekend much like you did, and I was hoping today would be better, but it’s a bit like swimming outside! At least we have some cooler air to look forward to.
Bees are always a welcome subject! You definitely get an A for effort, especially with the heat and humidity we’ve all had!
Saturday was beastly hot and humid. Sunday brought rain and a drop in temperature. Today the humidity and the temperature was down and it felt so refreshing. I hope that weather heads East and gives you a break. I ordered the tank/shift pattern from Grainline and looking forward to giving sewing an easy dress a try. It has been years since I sewed a garment for myself.
I love the bees! Such busy creatures! 🙂
While we completely missed the heat wave (our trip to Alaska ended up being perfectly timed), we are super happy with the cooler, less humid temps since we arrived back home. I hope they’ve moved into your area, too.
I’m glad you found plenty to keep you occupied INSIDE! I read Simenon … in high school French and do not remember liking it. I’ll bet I would in translation – or even better on TV! and yay you on the Uniform sleeves! the black shift I saw on Instagram was perfection … are you sewing another one? woohoo!
