It’s time for Tuesday… again!
I know I say it pretty often but I can’t believe it’s Tuesday already. This week flew by. I know how busy we all are so I sure do appreciate when you take time out of your day and pop over to say hello. Thank you!
Oh and yet again I find myself saying… “It’s Hot!” I know, I know I live in Arizona most of the year and I should be use to the heat. However, this heat here in Pennsylvania with buckets of humidity thrown in… is simply dreadful.
We find ourselves indoors more then we wish to be! Come on now, it’s Summertime and the Living Should Be Easy, right? With all this time inside and thankful for the luxury of central air… I have journaled more. Do you Journal? I don’t do it every single day but I love to write down my thoughts and the happenings of our lives a few times a week. Plus, I’ve been adding my very own doodles and art to it. It’s quite enjoyable and relaxing for me. I still need to make a cover for it so when that is done I’ll share a picture of my Journal.
“Fill your paper with breathings of your heart.”
I want to add some of our garden flowers to my journal. So I asked sweet man to make a wooden Flower Press for me. I am a beginner at this but I did look up some ideas of how to begin by using what a I had at home.
Before adding the top piece of wood… I did another layer of flowers on a coffee filter. I covered it all with coffee filters and parchment paper then added the top board. I’ll wait a few weeks to show you how it all came out.
I may try Eco Printing with some of our botanicals as well. Eco Printing is a natural way to dye paper or fabric where the natural dyes come from the plants. It’s quite involved but I may try it. I’ll keep you posted.

We went searching for Sweet Man’s Church Camp that he went to in the summer as a kid.
We found it!
Long ago there was a Door Knob factory very close to the Church Camp. They closed the factory years before Sweet Man went to the church camp as a kid. However, the factory dumped the clay molds of the door knobs all over the hillsides near the Church Camp. So one of the activities for the campers was to go hunting for Door Knobs… I kid you not.
Guess what we did?
Yes, you guessed correctly. We looked for Door Knobs! It had rained the day before and believe it or not… the knobs were coming up out of the ground in the road!
After Door Knob Hunting we went for dinner…
Thanks So Much
As I always try to convey… we sure do appreciate all of you. Thank you for joining us for another Tuesday Tidbits.
Wishing all of you a wonderful week ahead. Whatever you have planned… make every summer day count.
