When the heat turns way up in the summer, I always like to look at photos from the winter to remind myself that these temperatures won't last. My thermometer says it's 86 degrees, but the heat index is a full twenty degrees higher. I like to blame Al Gore for these things...you know, because of global warming. If only I had his phone number.
Of course if you know me at all, you know I'd never actually call him. I'm more of an email/facebook/twitter person. Texting is even a bit invasive, if you ask me. I can't help it.
In the midst of all this summer heat I was just wondering what you like to do during these long, hot summer days? Swim? Shop? Read? Go to the movies?
I've never been much of a pool person, but two years ago I finally broke down and bought a swimsuit after 9 years of not owning one. For the past 2 summers, I've looked great in my little tankini. This year...not so much. The bold diagonal stripes have now turned into squiggly lines and what was once a modest fit is now, well, not-- thanks to the growing little girl in my belly.
Speaking of my daughter, due to her impending arrival I have been on a major down-sizing kick. I've decided to have a yard sale when we return from our vacation. My husband better watch out because anything that isn't nailed down may just be headed out the door with a neon sticker on it. I think this is what they refer to as "nesting".
Organizing and cleaning may not sound like the best way to spend your summer, but I hope you are finding a constructive way to spend the time. Sewing, crafting, planning a BBQ for your friends..just a few suggestions for you.
As for me, I'll just be here on the couch in between thinking of things to sell.
