Heat Wave

Please notice that I am NOT floating around in that chair in the pool!!!  I should be!!!!  It's hot!  ***How hot is it?***  The high for today is 98 degrees, and the humidity was 89% at 8 a.m. this morning!  

  I was in the pool last night!   My sister is in for a visit, and the moon was big and bright in the sky, and it was a magical time to be in the pool swimming.  

  I'm expecting company in a little bit....I'm making homemade pimento cheese and sweet tea.  That's about all I can manage in this heat.  I may make some lemon bars....that would be a great dessert.  I think we'll  be spending most of our time in the pool.

On the warp front, I ended up pulling the warp back to the front, chaining as I went.  My daughter and her fiance came over and helped me wind it tightly on the warp beam.  YES, it took all three of us!!!  And, it took a lot longer than I thought it would.  Just pulling the warp back through and chaining took most of the day.  There were so many loose threads that caused it to be uneven.  No wonder I was having such a problem with tension!  Oh well....lesson learned.

I continue to inkle weave at odd can be carried from one room to the next, after all!  I finished the belt I was working on last week, and I've started a Jedi belt for my niece's husband.  (Long story....I won't tell it now!)  I'm already half way through!!!

So....may the FORCE be with you....and just WEAVE!
Stay COOL.......

LouAnn, I don't know about the weaving force, but we'll be doing our level best to stay cool. No pool or A/C but the house stays pretty cool. I'll be freezing up wet knotted t-shirts strips for Miss Puppy since she has started teething. Those back molars look like they will erupt any time now. Sometimes I put in a damp kerchief myself and wear it around my neck when I go out to feed. The horses like a good cooling hose off mid afternoon too.
Have fun with your company.

You are really getting into that inkle loom. Stay in the pool and stay cool.

I love the shot of the pool. I am glad you got that warp straightened out.
I don't know if I have the Force,
I'm just glad I have Forced air cooling!
