Hot and Humid

Hello! Things are coming along here in little Bridgetown, NS. I've been working out at Cottage Woodworkers building kitchens (ugh!) although he keeps promising we'll get on to some furniture pieces one of these days. It's not so bad, really, I'm learning a lot and he's happy to show me, which is great.
Jai drove some vets around the other day, and heard some great stories. He also saw the river beaver up close and personal, but he didn't have the camera with him. If you are ever in the same situation, according to Jai, of being on a bridge looking down on a beaver, and you happen to call out "Hey Beaver!" the beaver will stop, look left and look right, but he won't ever look up. Beavers are shifty creatures.
It has been really hot and humid here for the last two days. Luckily, most of the time there is a little breeze off the river, but it's still hard to be outside in the late afternoon.

Emma likes to lie right in the window until the sun hits it late in the day, and I have to close the curtains.

We have a blossom on our watermelon plant! Yay! And if you look really hard, you can find the odd little green tomato already on the bush.

We've both been getting some work done in the shop, and making lots of plans. One of these days we'll get started on those plans!

Here's a nice shot of a tree at the side of our house:

And that's all the news I have for you tonight!
