It is 8 o'clock in the evening and we are still at 90 degrees. Today has been absolutely horrible with the heat. We are suppose to have some rain move in later this evening.
It makes you think when you see cars along the side of the road. I wouldn't want to break down in this heat. I know I had to go outside some at work today and I was anxious to get back inside that is for sure.
Our youngest grandson made it to the zoo and he wanted to bring home the baby giraffe. He thought that should be no problem. He has zoo animals on his farm instead of the cows, horses, and pigs.
It won't be long until school starts again. I really don't know where the summer has gone. This month just got started and it is gone. It is almost like time is flying with every blink of the eye. I
was so glad it was Friday and I have a couple of days a way. I am shopping tomorrow for some shelving that I need for my booth that I am opening. It will be work in progress for a while until I get it the way I want. It is painted and ready for me to start getting it ready for the opening. Well I must close for this evening. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hee Hee...Margaret B. has it comfy up there in Canada! ;-)

We benefited from the incoming tropical storm. High heat preceded the rain, but it's actually much more reasonable now. (It's only 80º instead of the 90+!!) A great day to stay inside and sew. (You can see what I did Friday when my Saturday post goes up at midnight Eastern time). More rain and sewing tomorrow.

Take it easy, and have fun setting up your space. Take lots of pictures!!!

Hugs from Florida.

Hi Shirley! I think everyone is experiencing the heat! It has been hot down here too...Florida, but today a little cooler as we had the tropical depression go thru. Rain most of the day.
I'm interested in your shop...I guess I missed that somewhere! Let us know how it goes and put up some pics!
Have a great week end and stay cool.

Smiles and Blessings,

Hi Shirley,
Always enjoy my visits and I can see you are still braving very hot temps like us.
Tonight we had some rain, but it only got muggy.
Many good wishes with the set up of your new booth. I hope you have much success.

Have a nice restful weekend and stay cool sweetie.

Hi Shirley! We have been suffering terribly with the heat here also. Heat index has been over 100 all week. We've had a few pop up showers, but it just seems to make it steamy. Hope you cool down this weekend! Twyla

Hey honey sorry this heat is getting to you..
Yes where has this summer gone...mine in bed for
I am upset though that I have not got to see my grandbabies yet since they have been out of school.
Oh well maybe soon I can drive that far again.
Thank you so much for all the prayers and concern for me. Honestly Shirley I can not tell you how much this means to me.
It is so sweet of you to take the time to encourage me and to pray for me.
Also I want to hear more about your new adventure. I have been trying to decide what I should do because I am not sure they are going to ever release me for law enforcement work again..
You need to write me and tell me about it

Hi, Shirley,
It seems the whole nation has been having a very warm summer!! We have had a few showers around Central Texas, and I am praying some will blow my way. Good luck as you open your booth, dear friend, and may you have a beautiful upcoming week. Love and hugs~ Vicki

Ok...I think blogger is being good today. I left a comment on your last post 3 times and it went all wonky!
I can't believe how hot it has been. But as you said, it will be Fall before we know it and then Winter and we'll be freezing our batooties off!
Hope you are doing good sweetness.
Hugs to you!

I'm just now catching up with you! I agree with you that time is flying by! But like I told my mom, it must be because we're having a good time!

Stay cool!
