Hey everyone! Just about everything is withering around here, including me! Not quite as hot today as yesterday, but still......! Sometimes I would be just fine remaining in "ignorant oblivion" regarding how hot it is, like yesterday for instance. I simply prefer to stay inside when our weather is so hot, working on crafts or sewing projects and only going out when I absolutely have to do so. Now The Man, as I've said many times, is multi-talented and very interested in so many different things. He loves learning new things and reading stats. The Man rarely complains about the heat, but after running some errands yesterday, he came in all sweaty and red-faced and talking about how HOT it was. He does not like humidity, so he had to promptly look up what the humidity was and then proceeded to figure out the heat index. He could have kept it to himself, but after 44 years of marriage, we pretty much share everything....lol! This was no exception. With higher than normal humidity, our heat index was........126 degrees! Yikes! I was so much more comfy in my little craft room with the fan on before he shared this wonderful bit of info. I swear, I just melted on the spot and became a pathetic drama queen! I found myself "sighing" with every little task -- I told you, so dramatic! After all the sighing, watching me dab at my brow, and wondering if there would be any dinner prepared last night, I kind of doubt The Man will be sharing those tidbits of info with his little wifey from now on! But, then again, he is such a risk-taker!
Will something come of this?
Today isn't so hot.....well, you know that's a relative thing! It's only 95 degrees at 1:00pm with 26% humidity and that makes it feel like only 101-- yep, that's a walk-in-the-park! Anyway, with such "milder" conditions, we ran a few errands earlier today. I do try to limit the number of stops during the summer heat because that really zaps your energy, but we had several places to go -- probably two too many! But heck, most of the stops were my "happy places," so I powered through. Would you like to see what I bought? Of course you would, right?
I'm always up for a visit to World Market, especially when they have coffee and/or Torani Syrups on sale, and I have an additional coupon!
Do y'all remember Moon Pies? Well, maybe they are still around for some of my Southern bloggy friends, I don't know; but I certainly remember them from my childhood growing up in Louisiana! But I couldn't believe it when I got my email ad from WM, advertising Moon Pie Coffee!
And look what else.....S'Mores flavored Torani Syrup -- I've died and gone to heaven!
Michael's is only a couple of stores away from WM, so we zipped in there, too, but wasn't feelin' the love!
Next stop.....JoAnns! I doubt I've ever walked out of this store empty-handed.....lol!
Now this is just a little sneaky peak at some of the components I'm putting together for a b-day present for one of my granddaughters. I can't share too much right now, just in case their Mom or Dad might be reading my blog! I'm so psyched about this gift, so I promise to share at a later date!
Now this wasn't from shopping today. On our way back from our vacay last week, we drove through a small mountain town in AZ (Payson), and thanks to Ceekay @Thinking of Home, I knew there was a great little scrapbook store that I needed to visit. I was truly not prepared for just how awesome
Paper and Metal Scrappers was going to be or how much fun the owner, Barbara would be. I was immediately caught up in her selection of paper and the wonderful quality. I decided to do a collage of my purchases. Can you guess which is my favorite? Yep, that beauty on the lower left -- I'm seriously thinking about framing that one! All of the papers at the top of the collage will be perfect for my Project Life albums -- so, so cute! Anyway, Payson is only about 90 minutes away, and The Man has already agreed to a little day trip (or two), and I have Barbara's class schedule! Did I mention that Payson is a good thirty degrees cooler than here? Well, that just makes it all the more appealing!
Last stop was Costco. Is it possible to get out of that store without dropping a hundred bucks? I don't think so! Good thing we only go once a month and only buy specific things. Oh, in case you haven't been to your Costco or Sam's Club recently, Fall stuff is starting to appear!
Well, I'm enjoying an iced coffee flavored with "S'Mores" Torani syrup right now. Such a tasty little jolt of caffeine to get me through the rest of my day. Hope the weather where you are is nicer than here, and you are having a marvelous day. Thanks so much for visiting!
