My son and DIL had both taken days off from work on the 5th of July and they took the children to Ohiopyle. A few pics from my DIL that I saved and compiled into a collage….

They also took Merle, their dog, and Tallica said that he was very anxious about the kids jumping off cliffs in to the water…like a worried Mama : )

While I love that place, I did not go with them. Awhile back I’d had some work done on my back porch, replacing wood, etc. and that day the guy came to start on the painting….he’s a family friend and he also did some bush trimming for me as a favor. I have done everything with hand tools and need to invest in an electric trimmer like he has in the near future.

I kept thinking of the girls under the waterfall as I was outside in the afternoon heat sweating as I raked branches and worked alongside him for awhile :)  Some were in the spare garbage cans and some piled up for him to haul away later.

The forecast was for rain the next day or two so we agreed that he’d return when all of the rain passed.

Of course they are usually wrong…and this was no exception.

The entire day ( Thursday ) had no rain until around 4: 30 but it was so humid and ‘muggy’ that you could cut the air with a knife. If you live in an area where it is hot and dry I don’t know any way to explain it other than we’d prefer 90 degrees and dry than 75 degrees and humid :)

I may take a little blogging break …lots of yard work coming up after these rains, nothing exciting going on in the way of sewing aside from finishing up hand quilting on Scrappy Granny and next weekend I am the photographer for a wedding.  I will finish this post by showing these coneflowers. I have the standard pink Echinacea / Coneflowers in the back of my house but I purchased and planted these in the front last year.  The transition that they go through upon opening to the finished product ( on the left ) is fascinating to me :)

  1. These photos look like the best of summer fun. Enjoy your time in the yard, Deb, it sounds like a very relaxing and rewarding way to spend a summer day.

    way too humid here too and today to be near 90, when it gets too humid and 82 I’m not even on the porch anymore! I’m not sure if you are a Bonnie Hunter fan but did you know she will be at Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, Pa this weekend – a showing of her scrap quilts will be with her. I’m not sure how far that is from you as I think you are on the Eastern side of the state? I would go if it was me but I’m way too far away :(

    Hello, the children look like they were having a great time. Your flowers are beautiful, coneflowers are a favorite of mine. Enjoy your blog break. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

    Enjoy your break and have fun photographing the wedding. We are having a stream of 100 degree days…ugh!! (ANd to think 6 months ago we were buried in snow!) Go figure.

  6. I too live in a place that is muggy, muggy, muggy! I hate it. Much rather have 100 degrees, which we have by the way, and dry.

    Humid here, too. Yuck.
    Enjoy your blog break. Sometimes my own just seems like one more pet who needs my attention and I’m already stretched thin!

    Well it has become so hot and humid in South Texas if I walk it has to be at 6:30 AM. I like it then because I have all things out of the way by 9:00 AM!

    Hang in there. Only 2 or 3 more months of this UNLESS we get a Hurricane in the Gulf.

  9. The temps have been well below the 90’s here, but we’ve had the same kind of humidity. After working outside and I’m ready to shower, I know it has been high when I have to peel my clothes off because they are soaked and stuck to me. The kids look like they were having a blast. Beautiful place. Enjoy your yard work but make it early in the day. :-)

  10. Kudos to you for taking on a wedding! I would be so nervous :/.

    Weather here has been fabulous…low humidity and sunny with a few rainy days for good measure.
