I could have entitled this post 'HOT' but I'm choosing to think cool thoughts. Mind over matter and all that. Yesterday it was really *cool* and I didn't manage to do a darned thing but sit and enjoy the *cool*. Today just might be more of the same. So...because of all that *cool* there isn't a photo of any progress on anything to share with you today. I'm sorry. (Just to let you know how cool it is - current temperature is 84F with a humidity level of 30% and it's not quite 10 in the morning.
Sounds as though the wearing of masks is becoming mandatory here and that's a good thing, despite the fact that I hate them and have a hard time wearing them. Many of the beaches are closing down simply to stop the tourists and their insistence on over crowding and leaving their messes behind for locals to have to deal with. It's understandable but yet on the other hand it's making the few areas that are still open grossly overcrowded which only leads to more issues. There are two sides to everything and honestly I don't know what the answer is. I know if I lived in a hot city I would want to get out and enjoy nature and the beaches (although when it's this *cool* I can't possibly imagine why anyone in their right mind would think sitting on *cool* sand in the *cool* sun would be the least bit enticing). There was a report on the news last night that they were parking on side streets because they're not allowed to park near the beaches and to the degree that they were entirely filling the streets to emergency vehicles couldn't get through. That's endangering the lives of the local residents and flagrant disregard for the law. I don't know - it seems this pandemic is bringing out the worst in a lot of people.
Now, that's my two cents worth for today and on to some links....
- Have a peek at the work done by THIS artist. She is quite prolific and there are several pages of her work you can browse through.
- Those of you who make journals might find THIS of interest. While you're there you might like to read THIS about the making of junk journals.
- If you have a fabric panel and are wondering what you might do with it, perhaps THIS might spark an idea for you.
- If you like hexies perhaps you might find the article HERE fun to read.
