LIFE: Photo An Hour - July 2015

My head is forgetful enough on a Saturday morning to have missed out on June's photo an hour link up's with Jane and Louisa. Surprisingly enough I remembered to tag along with the challenge on Saturday. We actually had a lot more planned for the day, but SE Michigan went under a heat advisory and it was nastily hot outside. So here is what we got up to instead;

Photo an hour

9 am // checking over the first lot of stitches of that old printed counted cross stitch sampler in the daylight. My embroidery skills are still a work in progress but so far, so good.

10 am // Saturday morning always means fitting some estate sales so 10 am caught us driving around. With a heat advisory over the weekend, it was far too warm to drive around to too many, but the three we hit we did pretty well out of.

11 am // at the last sale we scored a huge cabinet of old Lego pieces for $15. After giving our nephews Joe's old Lego last year, we saw this and thought of them. But it the cabinet was incredibly dusty... 

12 pm // still cleaning the Lego, the story of today. Lego orgy was occurring.

1 pm // Taco Bell lunch fix - trying out the new bacon club ranch chalupa which was pretty tasty indeed 

2 & 3 pm // yet back on the Lego cleaning, well more refilling the drawers ...

Photo an hour

4 pm // finally time to poke through some of my other estate sale goodies - including this huge box filled with some more thread & accessories for cross stitching. Estate sales feed my stitching addiction for sure

5 pm // messing around with some of the old Transformers Joe found at the same estate sale that the Lego came from. We're both big kids around ours. 

Photo an hour
6 pm // pizza and wings time! 

7 pm // 33 degrees and blue skies and far too much humidity outside. I can deal with Michigan heat a lot lot better, but that humidity, urgh.

The rest of the night was themed around lots of Netflix, beer and hiding inside with the AC blasting.

How was your Saturday?
