It seemed like a good idea at the time...

Famous last words aren't they? Why, oh why does the city of Jacksonville schedule the majority of their fun events when it is hotter than Hades? Today I visited the World of Nations (lovely festival btw) and seriously thought I was gonna pass out. The heat and the people and the sun beating down on me... oy with the poodles already. I mean it was ridiculous. And of course the water racket - your only option was Dasani at $3 a bottle so it was $12 everytime we needed to hydrate the family. Ridiculous I tell you. It was a busy weekend. Lots of fun, but lots of running. We started Friday with a concert for the big dude at the Landing. Again with the outdoor events in the no-shade, back-breaking heat. But he had a good time - here he is taking a bow after the concert (he's the trumpet player with the white polo and long pants):

And then on Saturday I spent the day with Sugarbee and the boys hit up the local comic book stores for free comic book day!

The ghostbuster chickie loved little dude's Chuck Norris shirt.

And I finished up the weekend by listing a few yarns on etsy. One of these days I will be able to take better photographs. These colors turned out lovely and true but I still have that fragging turquoise that I cannot for the life of me capture in photo. Anyone want a skein of Turquoise Semi-Precious sight unseen? I'll cut you a great deal!
