Can you say Hot?

Goodness it's hot here!  103F yesterday with more of the same forecast for a few more days.  I came home from the lake Monday but we drove out to water the grass and plants last night after a dinner meeting Hubby and I went to.  

I think I may have neglected to show you the beautiful hats Barbara sent for the babies at the local hospital.  Doesn't she do beautiful work? I love the rainbow of colors.
Sunday afternoon we played in thelake to try and beat the heat. Here's a picture of Hubby getting ready to catch the frisbee. He and Larry start playing frisbee and before you know it they have a half dozen or more kids joining in. Great fun!
See that dot in the middle of the lake?  That's Hubby and Paul canoeing across the lake. They are FAST!  It only took them about 10 minutes to go across and   back.  It's not a tiny lake. This photo is zoomed in to give you an idea of how far it is.
Pipers sweater is coming along.  Most of the parts are done now.

The sleeves.
The back.
Left and Right fronts.  You can see by the needles that I'm working on the button band.  Hopefully it will be finished today.
I've been out and about running errands this morning.  We had a bucketful of pennies, dimes and quarters. We just empty our pockets and throw it in-when it's full I take it to the bank where they put it in the machine counter.  Then I deposit it in savings.  It was almost $50.00 this morning! Not bad for spare change.  They don't take a cut like those coin  machines you see at the stores either. We get to keep it all.  Yeah!

Then it was off to the car dealership to get the key fob battery replaced for Hubby's truck.  They were very nice and less than 5 minutes later I was on my way.  Next up is an appointment in an hour to get a canopy/topper, (whatever you call it in your part of the country), put on the truck.  We're looking forward to a few weekend camping trips in it yet this year.  I'm ahead of schedule so I found a McDonald's close to the installer.  I have a diet coke, my knitting and a book so I'm all set!
Please pray we get a break from the heat and some gentle rain here in the Northwest.  There are fires burning everywhere with new ones popping upevery day from the heat.  I don't remember having such high temperatures here for so long a time in the 20 years we've been here.

I hope you're all having a wonderful day wherever you may be.  Remember to be a blessing to someone today.  It will make your day a precious one too.

Blessings,
Betsy
