81F





It's hot for the first time this summer here in CO, and is destined to me even warmer tomorrow.
However, we do enjoy a regular evening storm, which is a wonderful relief.
The weather is making me feel rather sulky and tired. I could lay on my bed all day and listen to Tommy Dorsey.

What music are you all enjoying? I would like some new tunes to try out.
What is the weather like where you live?
How are you feeling?

Ps.  I wish the photo quality were better, but alas, my mom has my camera battery.

  1. Where I live it will not warm up, so lying in bed listening to big band and enjoying a little angsty sulk sounds absolutely beautiful- in an odd way! Thanks to my sister I've been hearing a lot of Il Volo, specifically the album Grande Amore. But Francoise Hardy's been on my radar lately too!

    Beautiful picture <3 Those sheets are exquisite!

  2. Love these photos, Ava! <3
    Let's see . . . I have been listening to a lot of Andrew Belle and Of Monsters And Men.
    Our weather has been lovely! Yesterday it was a bit chilly and windy, but it warmed up later in the afternoon and was a perfect 70. :D
    I've missed your posts! <3

  5. Nooo, your photos are great!! They're very aesthetic and Tumblr-y!
    Right now I'm listening to Ariana Grande's new album and I occasionally listen to some k-pop :D
    The weather has certainly improved here in the UK but we occasionally get cloudy and cold days. Otherwise, it's starting to feel a lot more like summer :D

  6. Such a neat drawing, and great photos. PRISMACOLOR PENCILS YES :D I have been listening to a lot of Bastille lately, and the other day I was enjoying some alternative hits of 2013. The weather is slightly gloomy but still warm- we call it June gloom. Great post!

  7. Hey Ava, down in NM we too have been having strong heat waves with weird blasts of rain! We hit 97F the other day and last Sunday had a beautiful GLORIOUS thunderstorm. But rain is, alas, not a daily thing here. I admit to zoning out in my room a fair bit, with fans blasting!

  9. The colored pencils! Here in Oregon the weather is in the 60s and there is over cast and on and off rain. I feel like resting as well. Going through blogs is how I could spend my days

  10. Your art is amazing! Also, don't worry about the photographs, they look great :) the content makes up for the quality.
    In my country, is pretty hot at the moment. There's scattered rain every now and then and more often than not, there's no rain in my part of the city D: but were making do with fans and AC units.

    Welcome to Teenage Blogger Central by the way :) it's great to have you join the community!
