Too hot to handle

Hi Everybody!

Hope all is well with you and yours. It's still very hot and humid here, the thermometer in my apartment is telling me that it's 34° inside and that's not a temperature conducive to working or even sleeping. It looks like we will have a storm later, so hope it cools off a bit. If I had wings, I would fly off somewhere else just now....

I have a second tag for Sandie's challenge at Tag Tuesday  -  wings. I made a hybrid tag combining various photos of sunrise and birds, taken from my balcony or on my walks and superimposed with some text and music notes:

And I am sharing another Van Gogh knock off, made in my A3 journal and painted with acrylics. I find his style of panting inspiring and relaxing:

This is van Gogh's 'boots' painting:

 This is my version, showing my fave boots:

I am linking to Paint Party Friday

Some photos taken this past week:

Blue skies and fluffy clouds:

And a flea market along the market in our little town:

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

T sTands for Tuesday This,That and The oTher

Hi Everybody!

Hope you had a good weekend. We had mixed weather again, hot and humid but also some clouds and grumbles of thunder. Today seems to be similar. I was out most of the time walking, and had fun.

On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday and this time our talented Sandie is hosting, and her theme is wings, so hope to see people joining in. I chose to show the lovely Frida Kahlo again and her quote, 'Feet, why do I need you, when I have wings to fly?'

Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the ladies of the T Gang. I drank several cups of my fave beverage while out and about:

On Saturday and Sunday I was out and about with my friend Nelya, having a girl-power weekend, and we enjoyed ice at 2 different places, but the first one somehow got eaten before the camera got to work. And I did do the requisite 19000 steps each time and a few more. Nelya chose bitter choc and lemon-basil for hers, I stuck to bitter choc:

Here we are having fun down by the lake in the woods:

And some miscellaneous photos from walks this past week. A lot were taken in the evening, a good time to walk, especially when the days are so hot:

Sign seen in a shop window - if you don't like bad language, look away quickly....

It was fun seeing the moon and the setting sun at the same time:

On this walk it was raining on one side of the road and dry on mine:

These 2 were taken by Harry:

Back to the Rhine:

That's all for today!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
