I've been watching some really good tennis this week, especially the Kerber/Lisicki and Radwanska/Kirilenko matches. And while I was watching, I was either working crossword puzzles or drawing with ink in a sketchbook. I am not sure any of my sketches are great, but I do think it is helpful to keep on trying.
At one point in the day, I was directed by the hubster to go out into the yard and check out this lovely flower that was growing from inside a tree stump. This is in a part of the back yard where there are no flowers at all. A bird must have dropped this seed and it just had to grow.
I think my daughter and her little girls are coming out for a cookout this afternoon, but I don't have anything else planned for the day except to try to stay cool and maybe do a bit of art. I went to Meijer last evening and bought some hot dogs and a can of chili without beans. I have been craving a chili dog for a long time and have finally decided to give in to it. I wonder if it will taste as good as I've been anticipating.
Do you have a big celebration planned for the day? Are you keeping cool? Are you making time for yourself and your art today? I surely hope you have power and that you either have cooler temps or some rain. My heart goes out to all those with either fires in their immediate area or have no power in these really hot, miserable days. Stay safe!
