There are also other unexpected things popping up in my yard these days:
Mushrooms. Because the sprinkler system is running everyday, parts of the yard are nicely watered and other parts are over watered and soggy and then mushrooms pop up. It is quite a science figuring the ins and outs of the sprinkler system.
Some unexpected home repairs today 🙁 I always hate to call the plumber — but apparently all of the pipes underneath my kitchen sink need to be replaced because they were not installed correctly to begin with — which is how it has been with everything in this house. SInce I have to pay for an hour's labor anyway, I may as well get the work done, and have piece of mind.
I am still working on copying my iphoto library to my external hard drive. I don't need the entire library copied, only the files since April 2009. A slow and tedious process. I really need to find an easier way.
Taking a couple of classes over at Jessica Sprague's website on Pen Tablet Basics for Scrapbookers and Illustrator 2. I thoroughly enjoyed Jessica's free card making class at the end of June. Big Picture Scrapbooking is also offering a free class Big Ideas Festival running from August 12th – 24th.
It's been so hot, humid and miserable with no relief and very little rain. I am ready for a day of steady soaking rain and much cooler temperatures.
