Giving Thanks

Hello, I hope you all had a great weekend.  I went back to work on Tuesday and this year I am at the high school instead of the elementary school.  It has been under major construction for several years now and is in its final stage.  We don't have plumbing on our side of the school and the air conditioning is having a hard time keeping up with the high 90 degree temps we have been having, plus all the openings from construction and workers going in and out is leaving the school super HOT.  I have been wearing shorts or capri pants every day, not sure it looks professional but at this point I am not worried about that.  I have to take a nice walk each time I need to use the restroom too!  The high school is the largest in the state of Iowa with 2,000 or more kids enrolled, I still have not found my way around the building yet. 



I used the sketch over at Sweet Stop for my inspiration.  


SUPPLIES USED:




Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

Pretty flowers and border! Absolutely lovely fall colors, too. I don't envy your sweltering weather. It's been warm with high humidity here. We're pretty wimpy on the coast and not used to it. Hang in there!
