One of Those Days

     It's the 15th of August, middle of the month, and I just want to give you a reminder that our monthly "Anything Goes" challenge is still going at QKR Stampede.  This fun and funny Eureka Stamps image (sister company to QKR) is called "Rainy Day Duck" and while he's not really depicting those rainy days which return in the fall, I did use autumn colors.  The image reminds me of the poor soul in the comics who seems to wander around under a dark cloud. :-D

     Personally, out here in California, we'd love to have a rain cloud or two right now!  We'd call it the perfect kind of "summer fun!"  We had temperatures at 101F for the first four days of this week, then 105F yesterday, predicted for 107F today, and at least another 10 days with predicted temps as much as 10 degrees above normal, so well above 100F to come.  I'm staying indoors to craft happily in the air conditioning.  :-D

Wonderful card Connie, we have had lots of lovely hot sunny weather here in the UK for a change. I think it has forecast rain from tomorrow for a week at least. Will try and send some across to you.

Awe! That image is just too cute! But I have to say that those ducks can let it "roll off their backs"...right?! LOL, sorry, had to get that in! Hoping you get more rain over your way friend! Stay cool! HUGS

Love your duck card. Definitely could use the rain here in California. Not sure what part you're in but we've also got triple digits for the next 10 days. Thanks for joining us at Catch the Bug.

I do like this duck, he makes me laugh, also a great sentiment, but the temperatures you are having? we had a little taste last week, now to the high 60's now and rain, but it's more comfortable.
Keep safe

Now how cute is that!!! There have been a few days in my life that are just like what that cute duck is having.......LOL
Your weather sounds hot and dry. Here in the midwest we are having cooler weather for 7 days and nights. Looks like we may have an early fall.
Take care and stay cool.
Hugs, Carol
