"Wedding Wabbits"....

"Tis the wedding season around here, and needed to have something for a "topper" to the gift. This particular bride has a pet rabbit....so in honor of her bunny, I created this little wedding couple. Great fun to make, and loved decorating them for their "big day"...


The "bride to be" loved them so much that it is very likely that they will be the topper for the wedding cake! ....and they will live "hoppily" ever after.....

First Triathlon....

in which I have ever participated! No, not as this "dashing dude" who has been in a running race...
or this cyclist....but as someone who puts the numbers on the runners/riders/swimmers. My idea of a personal triathlon is quite different...stop, drop, and roll...? eat, drink, and be merry...?
This local triathlon today saw many participants ready to brave our still humid, hot weather to be in various parts, or all three of the activities. After "marking" these people (with permanent marker, no less! Apparently, sunscreen takes it off your skin! Good to know!), I did watch the swimming event. A great day for this...the water was perfect, and the temperature a lot warmer than in other years. They are still riding, and running out there now....but I am back home in the air-conditioning! My "event" is over for another year! :)

The Heat is On....

and how are you all coping with it? We wait all winter for this, but it has taken a while to get here and is quite a shock!! Sister Esther Jen here is suffering from her own personal "summers", but she is a good example of expressions on faces during this heat wave!
The "heat is on" for another reason....very slack about getting items ready for the upcoming shows, and September is just around the corner! Work best under pressure, so have set myself up for it once again this year!
In the meantime, find somewhere cool to sit, something cool to drink, good books to read, and a minimum of work to do....and we should all survive the rising thermometer readings, which we will wish for once again in a few short months!!

Clever, clever!

As a person who is obsessed with puns, had to share these photos taken earlier this year of some clever names given to these boats.
This one is particularly clever! I wonder if it is prone to sudden surges of heat....
Simon and Garfunkel would be proud of this one!
