Summer, or what feels like "Summer" emotionally, may finally be upon us. My nails have been painted thanks to Becca, Sandals bought while in Md, and now the sun is out. Not that I am a sunshine girl myself, it's all I can do to be out to get my vitamin D requirements (I don't.) Herbs have been bought and await planting (hold on dears I haven't forgotten you!) and the annual watching of the fireworks from our upstairs window is near. And yet, I still had a fire on a few mins ago thanks to our freezing air conditioning. We can never seem to get it just right, it's either too hot upstairs or freezing in our bedroom downstairs. It seems to have to do with the big ducts in the garage that control how much of the air goes downstairs and how much upstairs, so I can still think about doing something as "hot" as knitting with wool.

I've got nothing to say of any significance, just a early July hello.

Izzybelle's JOY

Is it just me, or do children "do joy" facially better than adults? Of course, based on my recent experiences living with a toddler, (not to impune Izzy as I expect she might be sweet all the time) they also "do not-joy" pretty well too! I have absolutely nothing to say and this is a cheap excuse for me to post this adorable little munchkin's picture. She is my "step" grandaughter though I'll gladly pretend she's a full one (-: I just don't want to take any credit where none is due. My favorite recent tale from Izzy's mama Shelley, is that Iz who's real name is not IzzyBELLE...has taken to calling her mama "MamaBELLE."

I'm still sick (got a flu or virus of some type, seemingly on the trip back from M.D)I've moved on to the secondary stuff that follows a flu/cold. There is nothing like being sick to make you want to get a TON more things accomplished each day than you would ever really attempt in a normal day. In lieu of any actual accomplishment, I've have brought you this brief ramble.
