Happy mid-week everyone. Its suppose to be another hot day in New Hampshire today. I think it's been warmer and more humid the last couple of days than it was almost all summer.
I am ready for a little more fall weather for sure.
So did I mention I've been having some chronic hives lately? Anyhow, I got to work yesterday I was pretty swollen and itchy, so I called the doctors. Surprise, they were actually able to get me in that morning, so I left work and ended up taking the day off. Hopefully their suggestions will work or at least tie me over until I get to go see the specialist in mid-October. It was however not what I expected my day to be like at all. On my way home from the doctors I went the back roads up along the Merrymeeting River on the other side of my town, which was quite pretty. Here's a few photos.
I also have a tag to share with you. The theme at Tag Tuesday right now is Steampunk.
I made my tag with a lot of stamping, some fussy cutting, a bit of die cutting and a little coloring.
So yesterday the heat and the itchies didn't exactly motivate me to do much, so I spent quite awhile on the hammock reading. It felt like August again.My latest book club book is this story of one girl's life during the days of Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. Wow. It is a really sad story but the author is an excellent writer. I can't image a child going through not only the starvation and losing both parents as well as some siblings, but to also be trained as a child soldier. It goes to show you how scary the world can be, but how strong the human spirit of endurance is.
This is also the book that inspired the latest Angelina Jolie film, which I have not seen.
Truthfully I am not sure I want to see it either.
But I highly recommend this book, as tough as some of the reading is.
That's all for me today.
Thanks for visiting.
