These last few weeks of summer have us trying to squeeze every bit of summer fun and activities that we can. We’ve already started the school ramp up. Orientation yesterday…during the second half of the eclipse…nice timing people. At least it was raining like crazy at that time so no one cared.
Speaking of the eclipse…did anyone see it? I built a couple boxes in case the clouds cleared. We got peeks at it as it was eclipsing.
The clouds rolled in thick enough to obscure our view minutes before the greatest point of totality in our region. It was very strange though….the temperature suddenly dropped and the crickets started chirping. So awesome…just wish we could have seen as well as felt it.
The eclipse reminds me that I should show you my still work in progress of the acrylic pour project.
Somehow I seem to have lost the chipboard 3 overnight….I’m guessing Marvin had something to do with that. I think I’m going to paint the numbers either white or black…leaning towards white. Then seal the whole works before attaching the clock parts.
I have some ideas for projects. More button stacks. I just love how they look.
Over the weekend we had an evening that was just perfect for a fire. Hot dogs for dinner anyone?
As I waited for the fire to get going I checked out the garden. Late summer has done a number on some of the plants.
Such as the pumpkin plant..totally dead and gone.
The green beans have totally taken over. I’m surprised since they were really poor early in the season….which is completely opposite of the last few years. I’ll definitely have some spicy beans to can.
And diced tomatoes as well.
Since the thick humidity, as seen here over the weekend, has finally cleared out. I’ll likely tackle the canning today in between playing taxi driver of course.
What are you doing today?
