In brutal heat and humidity we potted plants and trimmed curtains. It was HOT.She has her own room this year and spent months gathering just the right decor and furniture for the first place she calls her own. I did what was expected of a parent visiting school....lunch and goodies for the fridge. She is very pleased with the results and yes, Claudia and I did give it our seal of approval. This is a shot of her Ikea rug and a trunk she painted and collaged.
We all had a great day, we will remember it for a very long time....a day that ended with a good hug and a dash to the car air conditioner.

It will take me weeks to sort through the catalogs and notes, but they will motivate me easily for the next six months. Then it will be time to do it all over again.

In 1995 Mr. HiHo was working at a TV station that was giving their new's set a makeover. He mentioned the amount of waste from the breakdown of the old set. At the time I was on the Gardiner Day Committee. I requested two of the stage floor panels, so I might paint them for photo panels. I thought they would be a nice addition to the once a year event. They took me about a week of painting...I did so when naps were happening and before the school bus arrived each day. I have always loved them, although they received a luke warm reception from the committee. They are stored in the garage at the park and if the weather is pleasant and someone thinks of it they are put on display for four hours once a year.
sorry, it's taking me a while to get to the point....
In May when we ( the Main Street Gang) planned the Cupcake Festival, I became an Indian Giver. I had every intention of using them for one day and then putting them back in the garage at the park. Then it seemed people were enjoying them ....hmmm, I will leave them up for a couple of weeks. Now it has been month's, and a lot of rain too. Well now I might as well wait until after the Tent Event weekend and then touch them up and put them back in the garage right???? Anyway they were a gift from our family to the town and HiHo has them in the parking lot on loan. They will be returned on the 15th of September...if it's a pleasant day and I think of it.(I'm so bad)
My name is Heidi and I'm an Indian Giver.
