As for me, I love this 50+ degree weather in the morning. I am hoping for highs in the 70s for awhile and would not be disappointed if we could have a hard frost one night and then have warmer temps for awhile without mosquitoes.
This weekend was a busy one. We celebrated a birthday and I got a few sketches done. I am pleased so far to be making progress in my new journal. I saw the whole family at the party and it was a lot of fun even though it was hotter than blazes. There was a breeze, but when it is 92º with high humidity, a breeze is just teasing. I sketched a picture of the birthday girl when I got home. The picture itself is not too bad, but I haven't caught her likeness at all.

The hubster is dealing with an Achilles problem and is scheduled for surgery in early October and we were talking about it and discussing the options that came up at the second opinion appointment so I was compelled to sketch about it.
And I've been looking through the old booklets that I acquired at an estate sale in August to find interesting things to sketch. I really love sketching buildings, especially barns so couldn't resist this one.
|I really enjoyed this one. It seems a little tipped toward the upper left, but not too bad overall.|
After much back and forth with the support people at Fat Cow, one of their techs was able to pinpoint my problem - I was using Firefox 6.0.1 and they were having issues with it. So I downloaded the older version, 3.6.21 and all is well. You can see the updated page here or you can click on the "Buy A Journal" business card icon on the right above.
What a weekend sports wise. The US Open tennis coverage has been wonderful and there have been many good matches to watch. I only wish I was there. And what about those Tigers - they swept the White Sox with three really big games, especially the Saturday game in which they came from an 8 - 1 deficit to win with a walk off homerun in the bottom of the ninth. Today they begin a 3-game series at Cleveland, the team who is chasing them for first place. Each game will probably be a nail biter.
Tomorrow I am going to visit my sister and am planning to stay until Saturday. I will try to get photos and sketches to share and this time I will remember to bring my card reader so I can actually get the photos onto the computer.
I hope you are having a lovely day/weekend and that the weather is getting cooler and the beauty of the Fall will soon show itself in all its glorious color.
