Now that the sun has gone down and it's cooler outside (heat index is down to 81, SOOO much better!) I can actually think! Considering how poorly I handle the heat, it's amazing I live in Florida. Living in Miami was actually easier because while it gets hot down there, too, the heat indexes are NO where near as bad as it gets here.
Is anybody else amazed that it's the last day of July? I'm actually happy abt it. School starts in 3 weeks and I'm looking forward to getting back into a schedule. The kids are ready to get back to school as well. I'm thankful that they both enjoy school so getting them to go back isn't really that hard. The hardest part is getting up in the AM. Considering we all stay up until the wee hours of the AM and sleep the morning hours away, it's going to be an adjustment for us all. Right now it's 11pm, and the house isn't even CLOSE to shutting down. In fact I hear sno-cones being made as I blog.
One of the best parts of going back to school is school shopping, which we did yesterday. What's great abt this is not only do the rugrats get some great new stuff, its great incentive to get rid of the old. Starting a new school year means you need to start fresh, right?? Special things are saved and stored, but it helps them get rid of a lot of junk.
So what have I accomplished this July?? Not a heck of a lot!!! The only knitted thing I finished was a pair of adult charity socks. I did read two books; A Black Tie Affair (your typical sizzling summer read) I won in a contest thru Chris, and Skein of the Crime by Maggie Sefton. Most of you know this is the latest in the series, but it wasn't my favorite. I don't want to give anything away, but there was a lot more of a storyline between the main characters with the mystery being sort of an afterthought.
Wow, a pair of socks and two books. I'm on fire!
I have started another book that's in a series, this one is Thai Die. THIS one I'm really enjoying. I should have this one done soon with Blackwork waiting on the dresser.
Perfect books to read while on vacation........
Virtually speaking of course.
