Rock Painting and a Movie

May 23, 2019 1:55pm CST
Today is Thursday, at least here in the US. Which means it's rock painting day. No, there isn't a picture, yet. Next week. I'm not enthused with today's projects. They didn't turn out how I hoped they would, which only proves I'm not an artist. Oh well. On arriving home, I went to my friend down the hall to see about watching a movie she put on her DVR a month ago for us to watch and watched the ever delightful Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It's a cloudy breezy day today. It's supposed to get to 68 which is a far cry from what they predicted last week at 80 for today's high. At least it's not raining. That's tomorrow. However, the weekend looks good, warm temps and a light breeze, so it will be a good holiday weekend here. Time to start interacting and seeing what you've been up to. How's your Thursday or are you on Friday already? Thanks for reading.

Summer isn't here yet. It can wait as long as possible to show up. However, if summer is like today, the 60s, I won't mind. I don't do well in the heat.

@just4him I was wondering about that since your over the moon when it snows.

@sharon6345 I'm not a summer person. If I could, I would do what the snowbirds do and go to the southern hemisphere in summer. Winter, Spring, and Fall are good.

no frettin' o'er the rock paintin'. yer'n artist, jest perhaps not practiced 'nough fer this particular skill?? love that movie! such 'twas'n metv last month i believe? prolly watched't 't least 4 times, lol. 'twas heavy with moisture here thursday morn, cloudy 'n breezy. reminded me 'f back'n the hills when i went out to tend the critters. jest muggy 's the dickens. not a fun thursday 'n i'm so lookin' ferward to peace 'n quiet friday. hopin' we can get some rain this weekend (crunchy pasture syndrome) 'n fingers crossed that if'n such occurs, there'll be no bad weather with 't.

Your description has me right in your muggy fields with the dry grass crunching underfoot. I can feel the breeze and the humidity in the air. I was never an artist. However, my latent abilities are coming to light. I just wasn't pleased with yesterday's attempts. I hope you get the rain this weekend to perk up the ground.

@just4him aw, most kind 'f ya to say, ms. valerie. i used to be better's such. 'twas a beaut 'f a morn 'n now jest really warm 'n breezy. dang these rains that continue to elude, but thankful no hail storms here (knockin' wood). ne'er an artist myself, my brother seemed to've gotten all those traits. that bein' said, i've been teachin' myself to do fancy quiltin' 'n with tons'f practice'n many disappointments, folks're likin' what i've done. i'll most likely ne'er be happy with 'em coz i notice e'en the slightest wobble/variation'n stitches. the perfectionist'n me comes out complete with broom, lol. that bein' said, keep doin' what'cher heart tells ya to 'n such'll come. i'm jest thrilled yer tryin'! 'n most likely yer bein' too hard'n yerself. thanks fer hopin', i've feared e'en pullin' 'p the radar 'r watchin' forecasts. 've gotten my hopes high 'n then been a tad disappointed later 'nough this spring. big hugs!

@crazyhorseladycx Thanks for the hugs. Yes, most likely too hard on myself, but like you, I see every flaw. Your pictures of your quilts are beautiful. I wish I could quilt. I've never learned.

I do like the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. It was very warm here today and I had to get out of the sun for a while. Please, may Mr Toad visit you so he can have a coat of paint?

It's still in the low 60s. I think it's the clouds keeping the temp low. You can have the 80s. I'll keep the 60s. I took out hamburger, but I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet.

@just4him , our sun here always shines in extreme impact to people here. No one dares to stay for some minutes under the heat of the sun from 9 in the morning up to 4 in the afternoon afraid of heat stroke. People here always have with them bottled water.
