Sweltering

There won't be any pretty pictures to go with this post.  There is anything pretty here today.  The temps are in the 90's the humidity is high and during the afternoon-at the time of the most intense heat of the day-the central air just stops working.  No notice-no sputtering-no clue that this was coming.  It is so dreadfully warm here.  One bright hope is that I had dinner in the crock pot and didn't need to use the stove and heat us up anymore.  I was out with my daughter, enjoying a leisurely afternoon at Michaels craft store and Barnes and Noble.   We were enjoying an iced latte, cool and relaxed, peering through all the books we would like to own and my phone rings.  It's hubby to let me know that the central air has died and no one can come take a look at it until tomorrow morning.  The best part is that just for them to look at it they would like a small fee of, hold your breath now~ $125.  Of course, they did mention that any work done will be an additional fee.  Boy, things seem to choose the worst time to happen.  Thankfully, hubby is home to deal with all this craziness.  Not wonderful for him while he is on vacation but it does take the load off me. 

At least, I have a new short haircut to help keep me cool and a freezer full of popsicles.  We'll eat those until our lips turn blue and try to think it's really cool in here. LOL

I am working on a great new bag.  I can't wait until it is finished and I will share pics.  It is so cute and I think I will be making more of these.  They are so much fun to make.  Maybe it's time to open an Etsy shop.  Been thinking about it a lot.  Will have to see.  I may need some extra dollars by the time the ac guy comes tomorrow.  Oh, who am I kidding, I already need quite a few extra dollars.~LOL!

The poor dog looks like she's ready to melt.  I have been giving her ice cubes to try to keep her cool.  

I will share pics of my most wonderful swap package I received when I have a chance to post again.
