The good thing is that the weather in San Antonio seems to be stable and remains better than the past few weeks.

I did not want to search for the mannequin head so I asked my son, Johnny, to wear it so I could take pictures of it. He was not too happy and said, "it's a girls beanie." I said, "it is just so I can take a picture and put on the blog to show the cap itself, not you." Well, he trusted me and put it on. However, my older son, Martin, decided to chuckle and pick on him so I told him he needed to wear it, too! LOL Yes, he was upset, but hey, he needs to learn not to pick on people.
Next time I'll use the mannequin head to avoid issues. However, I am so glad both my sons are such good sports.

Lesson learned. Now he and Martin know to listen to Dad. Like we always say, "a father/mother knows best".

I might be able to do a bit of knitting before I sleep and take pictures of the final product tomorrow evening.
The good thing is that the weather is getting better and the rabbits continue doing good.

The color is a very light green color and I believe it is a "mint color", so it should come out great. I tried to make a small basket pattern and end it with a straight knit stitch, but I don't know if I came close to what I wanted. However, I love it! Tomorrow, it shall be all completed.

Jack is looking straight at me, kind of saying, "What? What do you want? Huh? Huh?"

Let's keep praying that temperatures get cooler soon for both humans and animals to enjoy the weather.

I guess it was meant to happen that the a/c would go out on us. Many people have been having problems with the air conditioner due to having it run all day non stop to escape the heat.
We hope the weather changes and cools down a bit soon. The good thing for us is that the rabbit shed has been cool and temperatures are appropriate for the rabbits. It helps to have it underneath the trees and the fact that we placed potted plants around it to keep it cool.
Well, keep your rabbits cool and your family, too! We will all survive the heat wave.

Everyone is still under water restriction and enforcing it fiercely. It is important to keep the rabbits out of the heat as much as possible. Giving them copious amounts of water is essential as well as using frozen bottles or other items to cool them down.

Regardless of the little bit of rain, it was nice to see there is some nice forecast this week.

Below you can see the un-stretched scarf pattern.
Below you can see the stretched pattern, which really looks like lace. It is an easy technique to knit, though I had a hard time at times finding the best needle size to use. I decided on size 6 and it looks great.
