Christmas in July!!!
Ok, maybe not quite, but I have thought Christmas twice this week, while we have endured some extreme heat, as has most of the USA..We hit 99 yesterday afternoon. I think that was the high for a long time! We just had a storm roll thru & we went from about 95 at noon, to 70 right now. (2:40 pm) Gee, maybe I should go pick my green beans, even if the garden is a muddy mess right now.....70 sounds much more inviting than 95.
My TWO Christmas' this week. First of all, on Wed., a dear friend & I went to get our Christmas Candy Making supplies. The prices are going up at the end of the month, so we decided to save ourselves some money. I have purchased my supplies in July before. They keep well & this way, I have them on hand as soon as I am ready to begin my candy making adventure.
I also bought a FUN MOLD to make zoo animals out of chocolate...anyone have ANY IDEA who might like zoo animals made by me???
My second Christmas is my July ornament. I started it last night & I finished it a little while ago. It is a Snow Season Freebie #4 by Count Your Blessings. I saw this a while ago & loved it, so as soon as I finished the SAL piece I was working on, this got stitched.
My SAL piece was the summer segment of the Novalee2 blog freebie. She is sending out each season during that season.
I got a new game for my Wii for my birthday. It is called Walk it Out. Oh my!!!!! Do I love this game. It is not a sit still kind of game....you better be ready to move. You walk to build an island....I am loving it & if you watch my ticker at the top of my blog, you can see I am getting very close to my destination.....lots of miles recorded thanks to my new game.
Thank you so much for stopping by & especially for your kind comments. I know summer is a busy time of year, but it means so much to me to see that people truly are reading my blog.
Have a wonderful weekend!
