Stitchin' Under the Heat Dome

There is no possible way for a person in our part of the world to be comfortable and cool these days. At 8:54 pm this evening it was still 95 degrees outside, the only person loving it was Murphy the Dog! She had a grand time on her evening walk around the neighborhood, me not so much! So, to beat the heat I have been cleaning a little here and there with the fans and AC going. I have been doing some stitching too.....

I finished these two kits while watching the "trial". Now I am busily stitching away on Bent Creek's Countryside Row or something to that effect. I am slowly coming down the homestretch of my summer vacation. I don't know about everyone else, but daytime television is awful nowadays. I think that is why I have been semi bored this summer vacation, that and the fact that I don't go outside unless there is a national emergency or we are out of diet Pepsi, because I have an extreme aversion to sweating buckets, and wearing a bra in this weather. Hope this didn't offend anyone or was TMI, but it is the truth, no matter how ugly!

A couple weeks ago Jonathon went to the country club pool with a friend to swim. Then he came home thinking it would be nice if we would join the country club-- I told him to run it by his dad. Like he has a chance of that happening, but anyway on with the story--He had a little cut on each of his big toes from the bottom of the pool, so says he, but the next morning he had two huge blisters on his toes from standing on the cement around the pool. Most people would have moved to a towel or got back in the pool, but not him. See they were playing a game and throwing balls at each other as they dove off the diving board and it was his turn to stand on the cement and nail his buddies with the balls. The sacrifices of youth!

So, I am getting ready to head back upstairs and start on my stitching while I catch the latest episode of Toddler and Tiaras. I thank God every Wednesday night that my mother didn't try to make a pageant queen out of me. My other new show that I love to watch is My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, I don't think I would have made a good gypsy either, those three hundred pound dresses would make me sweat,and I believe we have already covered that topic.

Have a wonderful week, stay cool, and may many happy, carefree, stitching hours come your way.

Your handwork is beautiful as always. Our forecast is predicting temps in the 100's for the rest of the week and again next week except for 1 day. That day's temp is only supposed to get to 99! Every morning I wake up thinking we're one day closer to Fall.

OK, I've been reading your blog for-eva, but it was just this morning that I secretly wondered "Are we actually twins that were separated at birth"...the "trial", letting the girls out to play, not liking hot weather and/or sweating, Toddlers & Tiaras..OMG!

You GO sista!

haha! We may be Coni! We do sound an awful lot alike! Thanks for the flag compliment--I love looking at it hanging on my wall.
Oklahoma Granny--I know what you mean about the forecast! They say this is moving to the East Coast next week and I say good riddance!
