GOOD MORNING, SISTAHS!


Weather is really heating up here in the AZ desert. Today is the last "cool" day before it really gets hot. Only suppose to hit 108 degrees today. Tomorrow we're looking at 112, 113 for Saturday and 111 for Sunday. I've committed to making cookies for church for this Sunday so I'm planning on doing those this a.m. while it's still relatively cool. Didn't quite get all the bedroom/bathroom cleaning done yesterday 'cause I was interupted by a call from my sister in WA and we had a long conversation. Did get some cards made and in the mail yesterday (INCLUDING THE JUNE SOTC CARDS, MARYANN!) but still a lot more to make including cards for Jeanette's swap. Yikes! Better go get busy. Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!!!

I made about 9 dozen Cranberry and Oatmeal Spice Cookies yesterday. I'm dropping off about 7 dozen at the church today for Sunday after church fellowship time.

Good Morning Sistahs!

I have a super busy day today - taking Brock to his last baseball game of the year this morning. He's enjoyed "playing". This afternoon I'm going to a SU Open House. I have to make a card that needs to be on my blog tomorrow, plus do some commenting for the DT's I'm on. And I still need to finish the notes to teach tomorrow's Bible study. Yikes! I sure wish there were more hours in a day!

Good Morning--raining again here this morning, so we are still hanging inside. We have some outside projects to do and it is supposed to clear up later. Hopefully a bike ride too!

That is HOT. I assume you stay inside in the a/c? Is it even safe to go outside when it is that hot?

GOOD MORNING, SISTAHS!
HAPPY "SON"DAY!!


Linda, we do stay inside. Lots of warnings on tv and advice on staying cool and hydrated. It is safe to go outside but usually we go from our airconditioned house to airconditioned car to airconditioned store. As someone said you know it's hot when you call 106 degrees cooling off.

Yikes. 106 would be about the hottest we've ever seen here and thank god not often. I know they say its so dry in AZ so the heat isn't as bad as here where its so humid, but it has just got to be HOTTer than one would ever feel comfortable.

My husband is powerwashing our camper so I have been trying to catch the cool mist to cool off (rather than the full on spray)

Yes, Linda, it is too hot! Plus the clouds are moving in from the monsoon flow so humidity is starting to go up. Hopefully we'll get some rain out of those clouds soon and when that happens the temps should drop about 20 degrees! We've got some great big cumulous clouds moving from the east across the Catalina Mt's as I'm looking out my window right now.

Happy SUNDAY everyone!!
HOT HOT HOT here too....(certainly not like in Arizona!!);o)

I just received a cute joke from a dear friend of mine
and thought I could share it here for a good chuckle....
It came all in upper cases and I am not about to rewrite it...lol
Here it is...hope U enjoy it as much as I did....lol


Catholic Shampoo
TWO NUNS WERE SHOPPING AT A 7-11 STORE. AS THEY PASSED BY THE BEER COOLER, ONE NUN SAID TO THE OTHER, "WOULDN'T A NICE COOL BEER OR TWO TASTE WONDERFUL ON A HOT SUMMER EVENING?"
THE SECOND NUN ANSWERED,
"INDEED IT WOULD, SISTER, BUT I WOULD NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE BUYING BEER, SINCE I AM CERTAIN IT WOULD CAUSE A SCENE AT THE CHECKOUT STAND."
"I CAN HANDLE THAT WITHOUT A PROBLEM," THE OTHER NUN REPLIED, AND SHE PICKED UP A SIX-PACK AND HEADED FOR THE CHECK-OUT.
THE CASHIER HAD A SURPRISED LOOK ON HIS FACE WHEN THE TWO NUNS ARRIVED WITH A SIX-PACK OF BEER.
"WE USE BEER FOR WASHING OUR HAIR"
THE NUN SAID, "BACK AT OUR NUNNERY,
WE CALL IT CATHOLIC SHAMPOO. "
WITHOUT BLINKING AN EYE, THE CASHIER REACHED UNDER THE COUNTER. PULLED OUT A PACKAGE OF PRETZEL STICKS, AND PLACED THEM IN THE BAG WITH THE BEER.
HE THEN LOOKED THE NUN STRAIGHT IN THE EYE, SMILED, AND SAID:
"THE CURLERS ARE ON THE HOUSE."

Mail call - Received cards from April, I love how you highlighted the flower. Was that a white pen or a brush stroke of paint. I can't find a pen to do that. Barbs cards are soft blue and yellow. It is one of my favorite color combos. Love the dainty bluebell buds. Also received cards from Judy. Judy's cards are blue with yellow accent flowers. Did you use an embossing folder for the background paper. Those little flowers are so cute.

Thanks everyone for the extra goodies. Totally not necessary but a fun surprise.

Better post this before I loose connection.

Have a good evening, that is what is left of it.

Maryann! Glad the cards arrived! That is a white gel pen. It is the signo uni-ball gel pen - white.

Hi Ladies,

Well, I thought every 2 months would be great, but I'm going to have to step back from the swapping. I know we *all* have full plates, but mine's just a little too full for my mental well-being right now.

Maryann, I'm sorry this has happened during your hostess month. I have my "prototype" about done, so I'll send it off to you when complete.

Our June has literally been one thing after another after another after another, the latest being my FIL had another TIA last Thursday, has been in hospital since, and had carotid endarterectomy yesterday to remove 75% blockage. Also found blot clot in left leg, but meds are dissolving that. All seems to be going well; he does have some weakness in his right arm and tingling on right side, but surgeon said he's not too worried. It's already improved since surgery and may eventually go away. He called the blockage "really ugly" so some minor lingering issues that don't affect quality of life is a small price to pay, considering the alternative w/o the surgery would have been a major stroke - next week, next month, it was ticking time bomb. Prognosis is really good, though, and a few prayers would be appreciated.

I'm sorry to be a swapping flip-flopper and hope you all understand.

Hope everyone has a great day. Hoping to be back to catch up in a few days.

GOOD MORNING, SISTAHS!

We had a lovely monsoon storm come through yesterday afternoon and in the wee hours this a.m. Love the rain! We did lose power for a few seconds about 1 a.m. It woke my DH up but I slept right through it. More storms predicted for today and almost every day this week. Love the monsoon! Temps should be cooling off a bit.

Susan, so sorry your family is experiencing such difficult times. I'll be praying for your FIL for full recovery. HUGS!

Well, I thought every 2 months would be great, but I'm going to have to step back from the swapping. I know we *all* have full plates, but mine's just a little too full for my mental well-being right now.

Maryann, I'm sorry this has happened during your hostess month. I have my "prototype" about done, so I'll send it off to you when complete.

Our June has literally been one thing after another after another after another, the latest being my FIL had another TIA last Thursday, has been in hospital since, and had carotid endarterectomy yesterday to remove 75% blockage. Also found blot clot in left leg, but meds are dissolving that. All seems to be going well; he does have some weakness in his right arm and tingling on right side, but surgeon said he's not too worried. It's already improved since surgery and may eventually go away. He called the blockage "really ugly" so some minor lingering issues that don't affect quality of life is a small price to pay, considering the alternative w/o the surgery would have been a major stroke - next week, next month, it was ticking time bomb. Prognosis is really good, though, and a few prayers would be appreciated.

I'm sorry to be a swapping flip-flopper and hope you all understand.

Hope everyone has a great day. Hoping to be back to catch up in a few days.

I am airing my suitcases too as I have to pack for our cruise as well before we leave for camping....
...yikessss...feeling a tad overwhelmed at the moment-to say the least! (Lots of 'forced' spending at the tune of thousands of $$$$$ some totally unexpected,and all in one week, which added to my worries too
