Is it a UFO?

Something very strange and foreign appeared in the sky yesterday.  It was very confusing for a little while. 

You could see people everywhere going outside and looking up at the sky.

What could it be???     Holy crap ------it's the SUN

We haven't seen that around here for at least 2 weeks, which would coincidentally be the exact time period that I have been on vacation.   Two solid weeks of rain or drizzle.  Bahhhhh.

But yesterday the sun appeared and believe it or not - its here again today.   Yesterday I grabbed the opportunity to sit out on a friends deck, eat Sugar Shack cinnamon buns and drink a little Bailey's infused coffee for several hours.   Mmmm, now this is what vacation is supposed to feel like. 

Tomorrow is an annual party at a friends house.  The forecast is great and I expect to be lounging pool side and eating way to much with a bunch of great people. 

It's a little ironic that since the weather has turned more summer-like, that I started hooking a new pattern - very un-summer like  --  a snowman

I just noticed looking at the picture that he has one huge eye.  Guess I'll have to fix that later.

Update on the Kitties:   I have not seen them or the Momma since that one day.   I haven't even seen them anywhere in the neighborhood.  So I think that they must have escaped from their home that day for a little adventure.  I don't think there was any foul play - just an open door and a brief opportunity for freedom.

Well, I have to go outside now and enjoy that large yellow ball in the sky. 


  1. Glad the sun is shining for you. I love the snowman's big eye. I think it makes him appear like a real outdoor snowman. Enjoy you day with your friends.

  2. That snowman looks very refreshing after weeks of 90° and above heat. Love the scarf and I like the big eye!!!

  3. Wow, Kim isn't it funny how you can get tired of rain or sun or snow when it's the same thing every day. I would love some rain!
    The snowman is really cute. There is nothing like a snowman to make you smile. Cheri

  4. I missed the kitty posts..they are very cute and look nothing like Momma. She's really a cool color too. I hope they all have found their real home. They look almost ready to be weaned anyway. I also hope they have a responsible owner who will "fix" them and help that over populated problem. Love the snowman too. I'm ready for fall, but I can wait on the snow for a bit. Your summer rain reminds me of the very wet spring we had. This summer has been hot and humid except this week it's been very lovely. I know it won't last, but I'll enjoy every night that I can open all the windows and let in the fresh air! Have a good weekend!

  5. Don't be afraid of that glowing disk in the's here to help you!
    Love the wonky-eyed snowman!

  6. We finally got some much needed rain!, & somewhat cooler temps.

  7. I had to laugh about your wondering if it was a UFO or the sun, because it's been like that here the last week. Glad you're relaxing a bit on your vacation. I love the wonky eye on your snowman! Not that you asked, but I vote you leave it. It gives him character! :0)

  8. How is it that you can say the simplest things and make me laugh? I was wondering what was up with the time tell me you're taking vacation and I'll plan on staying indoors!! Brrrr...! Or perhaps it's your kittywampus snowman that is bringing the cold front through??? Whatever, KNOCK IT OFF!! I have summer to enjoy yet!! (And your snow buddy is all kinds of cute...he just smiles happy!!!) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  9. Isn't that just the way of life that you have vacation and it rains for two weeks. Glad you got to see the unusual heavenly event today.
    Your snowman looks great. Enjoy the rest of your time off!

  10. Kim ~
    Hope your vacation ended up sunny and your party was a blast. I wouldn't know how to act if I was off for two!
    Hugs :)

  11. I actually like his big eye! It makes him look like some kid really made him :)

  12. It's 5:04 and I'm awake and thought that I'd check a few blogs and love how you described the sun. You are so creative, I'm glad that you got to enjoy the rare ray of sunshine on the tail end of your vacations at least and that the kittens have returned home hopefully. Hugs, JB
