Feelin' HOT HOT HOT!
WOW! Is it ever HOT here!!! We are on day 4 of a heat wave here in Toronto. I am soooo grateful to have air conditioning. Just walking to the post office wipes me out. It's like an oven out there!
When I was a kid I would swim in the pool at our condo every single day. I swam like a fish. Now that I have to wear glasses 24/7 I can't go swimming. Plus, I don't like what the chlorine does to my skin and hair.
Back then I didn't care! My hair was knotted and bleached out from the sun. I remember I had a swim suit that had little Canadian maple leaves down the sides. I was SO TANNED that where those little white leaves were I got a tan. Little tanned maple leaves down my sides. I remember I also had a barbie doll that would tan in the sun. Do you remember that doll? I can't remember her name, but she was so cool! After about 10 minutes in the sun, the barbie would have tan lines.
HA! I just found the commercial on youtube:
My newest painting is a mermaid. The best thing to be this time of year!
Up for grabs on ebay.
