Come Sail Away

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Sunny day here but verry windy, we are on the windy side of the lake but that's ok - we never have to fire up the AC...maybe we did once last year, I forget. I posted this on Facebook, if it's windy enough the few people that own sailboats have a blast with them. This guy was just whipping around the lake...looks like too much work for me! 

My latest ATC was for a winner takes all and her theme was vintage sewing. I used a bit of everything on it, fabric, Prismacolor pencils (love 'em!), Micron pen, acrylics...yadda, yadda. I hope it is vintage enough for her - if it were a real pattern it'd be from the 50's or 60's y'think? 

I got my hot pepper plants planted and the flowers potted for the wishing well out front (it came with the house, so I figured why not make it pretty) and pressure washed my paddleboat. I had great plans to do more but I'm just not jumping too high today. Hopefully we'll drop it into the water tomorrow and Chance and I can peddle around the lake a bit - lord knows I need the exercise.

Gonna pedal my boat.................at the Shores

Peddling around the lake sounds wonderful, Andrea, and I hope you get to do that today!
Your ATC is perfect!

Andrea said...

Thank you, Susan. BTW - what in the world were you doing up so early this morning?!?!?

I didn't feel good, so couldn't sleep. Much better today though. :)
Hope you're having a great weekend!!!
