My heart was in the challenge, but my Original Creative Thought was low on batteries, so when that happens, I create literally. Here is the design sketch:
When Dan was little he used to say, "I did it on accident." Not "by accident," the way adults say it. He knew that things were done "on purpose," so it only made sense to him that the reverse of that would be "on accident." I didn't have the heart to correct him because, frankly, it made sense to me, too, and I've said "on accident" ever since.
You remember how Mister built me clever collapsible structures out of PFC pipe so I could hang sheets over my hydrangea bushes on hot days? Then a nice follower said she just puts small garden umbrellas over hers. Oh, snap! So that's what I do now.
It's a lot easier and a lot more colorful than my old beige sheets, but we have a lot of hot days and I'm starting to ask myself if they're worth it, considering they have to spend almost the entire summer covered up, so they don't shrivel up and burn. And they're located in the shadiest part of the yard, so moving them is not an option. Sigh.
It looks like I'm hiding tiny naked sunbathers from the neighbor's prying eyes! Which, okay, I find rather amusing.
Enjoy your day! As always, thank you for stopping by to visit. Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave a comment!
