Hello, family!  I hope all's well!

We wait so long for summer and great weather to get here that I really-really hate to complain, but it's HOT!!!  LOL!!!

I think it reached 100 degrees here in Chicago today, and even with air-conditioning I'm feeling the affect of this oppressive heat!  I've been trying to do some crafting all day, but I'm feeling drained!!!  I think Buster likes it though because he keeps begging to go out every 30 minutes (or so it seems) -- and I don't mean he wants out in the yard, he takes me to his leash to go out for a walk!!!  LOL!!!  Each time I've went out there I believe I suffered heat exhaustion because I just haven't been able to come back in with enough anything to get me motivated to give attention to completing a project; although I have started several.    Honestly, I've felt like I spent the last month dragging 100 Budweiser horses for 5 miles!!!   It was in the 90's yesterday, but it didn't feel nearly as bad as the few more higher degrees today!  Guess I'm just getting old!!!  Speaking of which -- the "senior" moments I've had today!!!  OMG!!!

Anyway, I wanted to drop in to say hello and to remind you not to forget my post for "Pay It Forward".  I'm still trying to reach out to the first five (5) of you to begin making  gifts for.  Also, I'm still working on another little blog candy package, so keep on the lookout for that too!  I haven't forgotten and I don't want you to either.

Well, guess I'll try to finish at least one project this evening!

Love you all!  And, I'll be seeing you...

Oh I know how you feel! The heat has been unbearable the last few weeks. When our friends asked us to go to the cave, I was nervous about being exhausted (and becoming a party pooper) but I made it through! It would be nice to see some 80s don't you think?

You guys have fun and drink lots of water!

It has been so hot here too. I was trying to go swimming each day, but I only got in the pool twice and it already feels like bath water.

that is hilarious. I hope you drank plenty of water. It was HOT here as well. It was 96 in Ann Arbor Area with a heat index over 100 degrees.

OMG, Audrey --- I wouldn't be able to stand that kind of heat. We had it a couple summers ago and I thought I was going to collapse because of it.

Thanks for leaving all of your sweet comments on my blog!!! You're a doll!!!! :-)

WOW 100 degrees.. We finally saw the sun today.. I think it was in the high 70's - which is so unusual for us, we are usually running in the 100's by now. I hope you reach your five 'pay it forward', I really thought about doing it, but I am so far behind in everything I am afraid I wouldn't have time right now... they are going to condemn my house if I don't get up and start cleaning.. lol.. but I am feeling sooo much better today, almost feel human, I have started physical therapy and it is really helping... I actually worked on a card to day for Alex's dad for Fathers Day.. I thought it was this coming Sunday but Everett said no it was on the 19th.. well I almost have it done.. I think it is turning out really cute, can't wait to post it. hugs from Ukiah
