It finally warmed up, to 97 yesterday and I don't have a/c, or I didn't have a decent one until yesterday. My DS was here so I asked him to put in my tiny window unit. It only cools down this room about 5 degrees so it's not really all that great unless you sit right in front of it. So he said no he wouldn't put it in unless I went and got a new one that acutally was the right size for this room, then he would put it in. so off we went to WalMart and got a new 9,900 BTU a/c unit. He installed it and it does cool this place better than the old one. so now I don't have to suffer with this menopause hot flashes during the miserable heat here in the boonie mountains. We don't get much breeze up here when it's hot either.

I was browsing the What's New pages on a few ONS today and what a hoot these are, I love them.

I finished up a needleroll that I need to mail and started another cute summer design.

I recieved a needleroll for an exchange: I LOVE it!

The hornets & wasps are back again and building nests all over the eaves of the house. The nests are way out of reach of me trying to spray them though. They are even building nests in the little porch lights we have.
I haven't cooked much at all now that I am home but the other day I made my Spinach Lasagna roll ups Friday night and I fixed some burritos last night. My "DIL" loves the way I fix my burritos & southwestern lasagna. I made some jello too, I love to eat jello in the summer.

Uh oh

I went to town on Wednesday, there is a new Christmas Tree Shoppe here, I could be in trouble in that shop. What neat stuff! There is also a new Starbucks.

I probably won't be on the boards & groups much for awhile. Too much stuff to do here and I'm just not interested right now.

Thursday was one of those days here that doesn't happen often. I know I am lucky to be able to do it but I did absoultely nothing. I laid/sat on the couch all day with the remote flipping around the 57+ ENGLISH channels. That's all I did.

It has rained and been grey & dark since Monday and will continue until the middle of next week. ICK! It hasn't been above 65 either, chilly to me.

Anyway, if you don't see me for while, I'm fine, just doing other things.

June 3

I got most of my bags unpacked and put away but there are still a few things to get done yet. I even went though 5 months of mail.
I went through my stash briefly just to check to see wht is there but I want to really fondle it all again and get it entered into my stash database.
I have been diligently stitching on a couple of exchange projects and need to mail them.

I found out the backporch is broke! One of the railings must have broken from the weight of the snow and the gutter over the back porch broke off too. Gotta figure out how to fix that.

Now that I'm home, I can watch the Yankees loose games on MLB TV. They are doing crappy this year.

I can't post any pictures right now because the memory card in my new camera doesn't fit in any of the computer card readers I have. I put it in too far on one of the card readers and had a hard time getting it back out.
