Hot! Hot! Hot!
Just when you think it can’t get any hotter outside, it does! Whew! I can hardly stand this heat. This morning we went out to play before 9 and it was already 90+ degrees. I have been on a little “kick” lately to freshen up my house a bit and my first project was to spray paint a couple of candle holders. I forgot to take a “before” picture but they were black.
This is my “halfway done” picture. I spray painted them white and next I am going to distress some of the edges. Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve used spray paint! I was ridiculously nervous but I think they turned out pretty good.
While I was spray painting (and carefully avoiding breathing in too many fumes) Will was playing with his basketball and golf club. And I could NOT get him to even glance at the camera, silly boy. And yes, he didn’t have any clothes on. We’re classy that way – and I mentioned how hot it was.
I then thought it would be a good idea to go to a few thrift stores. Ha, ha, ha! It was not a good idea! It got so unbearably hot that Will and I were both sweating, I got a headache and Will was generally cranky. We made it to 1 store. But we went to a Goodwill Outlet. What? You’ve never heard of a Goodwill outlet? I hadn’t either until Bill told me about it this weekend. I didn’t know what to expect but I think I liked it. For most of their stuff – you pay by the pound. Yes, by the pound! It is not organized like a regular goodwill store so you have to dig but I found a couple of picture frames and a little rocking chair. The chair needs some TLC but I think with a good cleaning and some new paint it will be perfect!
We were close to Bill’s work so we called him and went and ate lunch together. Will was acting like a crazy fool (as usual) and fell on the pavement. It was a big milestone – his first really skint knee! He cried and cried. And when he got done crying he continuously relived the event by having the following conversation.
Will: Mommy (or Daddy)
Us: Yes, Will?
Will: Down! (while emphatically pointing towards the grown)
Us: You fell down?
Will: Boo! Boo! (while pointing at his knee and generally looking ready to burst into tears)
Us: You got a boo boo? I’m sorry!
This is the best picture I could get of the boo boo. It doesn’t look that bad now but it was pretty impressive when it was all dirty and bleeding!
