Hey, we went to the beach today. Boy, that was hot! No shade. At all. Neither of us is actually that into going to the beach. It’s kinda boring. I’d brought both a small crochet project, embroidery, sketchbook and a book to keep me entertained. Excessive? Perhaps.
I like this photo. I didn’t take it on purpose. But I like it. All that blue sky and then a little splash of colour.
See? Crochet. And sand. And a quilt I made. Which made its first outing into the wild. Couldn’t keep the sand off it. That’s what happens at the beach, I guess!
You know, I am always nagging on Tony to put on sunscreen. When he goes out on his bike and it’s sunny, I’m there at the door saying “did ya put on sunscreen?!” “remember the sunscreen, dude!” Ok, I don’t actually call him dude, but you get the idea…
Ohhh, I think you can appreciate the irony, then, that despite my best effort to smother myself in sunscreen, it didn’t quite go to plan. To wit:
Scary stuff, people!! I don’t often put my face on the blog, because I’m kinda private and stuff. So why the heck show you this nightmare? Well, I hope that 1) y’all are smarter than me and always put on enough sunscreen, 2) if you’re as dumb as me, hopefully you’ll learn from my mistake and put on that friggin’ sunscreen. And the photo doesn’t even look as red as I am in reality!
My poor, poor face, so hot and itchy. Ouch.
Please, please, please: wear sunscreen!
