Hello & Welcome to my 50th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is my latest crazy-hair-brained technique for beating the blogful summertime heat πŸ™‚

Well here we are, mid-way through August and the sounds of Canadian Geese are becomng more frequentβ€”signalling the beginning of the end to our favourite season :-/ All in all, it’s been a good summer. The snow melted extra-early πŸ™‚ Then it rained more often than not 😦 And now, I’ve finally discovered the secret to my future outdoor summer blogging success!Β 

The iPad makes it easy to bring blogging outdoors, of course. But gosh-yarn-it… that glass screen reflects EVERYthing!!! And that makes reading and/or snapping pics in the sunshine quite difficultβ€”especially for me, being visually impaired due to RP :-/

Hopefully someday, Apple will find a way to fix that glaring issue. Until then, I’ve taken drastic draping measures into my own hands and pulled the non-wool sheet over my head and iPad… LoL… ’cause y’know… 1-2 of our neighbours might not yet think I’m cuckoo πŸ˜‰ But hey… not so nuts, since I got to edit all these photos AND enjoy an afternoon of fresh air πŸ™‚ Plus now, I won’t need to choose between catching up with all my favourite blogs or enjoying the sunshine!Β  ❀

Do try this at home…
I highly recommend it!

So here in my photos… I’m all set for a blogfully constructive day in the sunshine with my iPad, charger/extension cord, earphones, fitted cotton sheet (elastic around the back of the head helps hold it in place if/when the wind blows) and water-filled hazelnut coffee creamer containerβ€”for a sprinkling sip o’ fun in the sun πŸ™‚

Special thanks to Ralph at Bluefish Way, for his clear how-to instruction post filled with ideas to create your own animated GIF-packs πŸ™‚ This first animated .gif of mine was really easy… I may need toΒ make more!Β
