I have a Confession to Make...

This is my "Swear Jar".. (ya'll thought I was kidding on that 'Ravelry Question' didn't ya?)...
It was a pretty rough start to the year.. and as you can see, it's got quite a few ... swear penalties inside.
(It's a quarter a swear word - and in my house, just about anything derogatory is a 'swear' including "stupid" and "jerk".. not to mention the real hum-dingers...)
So this is what my swear jar looked like from roughly Dec 2011 until June 2012...


Then... we had the past few days.. and here's what it looked like this morning... after 3 full days of blood-boiling heat...



The heat and I are truly not friends...
I'm not 20 anymore and find no interest in trying to take pleasure in slowly baking my skin to a golden brown.


I am getting fully back to work - we had severe thunderstorms this morning which kept playing with the power.  (So badly, that the Hub had to stay late at work tonight.) and there may be more thunderstorms tomorrow... BUT....
at least it has finally cooled down!! Hopefully for a while!  (Well they said that Saturday also - with funnel clouds looming right down the road and a 'twister' supposedly lightly touch the Mall where I get most of my doodle supplies - but the heat just crept right back in...)

The 2nd part of the Tutorial is coming soon along with an "exercise" to show off those techniques.





FYI (for those interested) - The Swear Jar Money (which is usually only change and gets cashed in once the secondary catch is full - been 2 yrs now ) will treat the People to ice cream and a movie next weekend.
