Happy Independence Day!

It's HOT! Day 6 of 100 degree temps officially. My car says we've had a lot more of them than 6! It's pretty unusual for us to have a lot of days this hot, especially in a row. We finally got our first vine ripened tomato and we are fighting over it. There's plenty more to come but that first one is a gem. I've got watermelon chillin', steaks and chicken ready to be b-b-q'ed today. We've got a big ole' birthday cake for Austin who just turned 18 last week.

I'm going to sit back and read today. I finished the Hunger Games Trilogy and enjoyed it. My 13 year old granddaughter Madi just read Divergent and Insurgent and loved them so I thought I might tackle those soon. I also got Ice Within the Soul by my high school classmate Shawn McKelvie. I think it will be next.

I have been selling off fabric on eBay, just right and left. It's a good feeling to let go. I don't plan to do retail shows anymore with my bad shoulder so I decided it's time to remove all retail sale items from the premises.

Here's a link if you wanna see..... Craftrgrl eBay

I still have books and notions to list also. My fabrics are almost all gone.

I guess it's the lazy dog days of summer now. Other than Accounting class, I am slowing down too with the heat. Reading in the A/C seems to sound better all of the time.

I hope you all have a great holiday today with family and friends.


  1. Sounds like you had a great 4th Cheryl.
