I am dreaming of a white........

Remember when we had alot of snow.....I didn't complain.  I actually love snow.  I do not like heat.  I do not like heat.  I really don't.  Way too hot today.  I went to have lunch with my cousin and a couple of her friends for her birthday.  I live an hour and a half away.  My Mom was to go as well.  When I got to her house she wasn't there.  I knew she had an eye appointment so I tracked her down.  She has to have surgery.  Every fall when school starts she has surgery.  She doesn't plan it and it isn't her fault but it happens.  Last year she had her kidney removed. (cancer) She has had so many surgeries in the past 5 years.  Seriously I think 8.  This one is in October.  Hopefully I will be able to miss a day of work by then.  I haven't even started yet.  My Mom is 83.  She doesn't look like it and doesn't act like it.  She wants to get a new car as the one she drives makes her look old.  That's my Mom.  She wore her make-up when they removed her kidney.  She worries about every calorie she eats.  I could go on and on.  We are nothing alike. 
After our lunch we walked to a resale store.....pityful compared to the ones you all go to.  Then she and I walked to my car.....in the 90 plus degree weather.  She got in and was having a hard time getting her breathe.  Scary.  I know it was the heat.  I felt bad because I took off for home after she was okay.  I have had migraines the last couple days where my vision goes wavy for an hour or so.  I didn't want to head through Columbus (Ohio) at rush hour and not be able to see.  Okay this post has no significance.  Sorry.

BUT a giveaway is coming soon .........don't forget to come back.  It's a good one.

Also, it seems I haven't picked a great time for my swap.  I will work on some samples and repost again in a couple of weeks.  Maybe everyone will be settled into a fall routine by then and we can get some interest.  I am talking very simple, easy, swap.  That's me.......very simple.

Okay, please be careful in this heat.  Those of you in California and
Alaska that are having cooler weather.........I envy you.  Yes, you can remind me this winter when we are snowed in and I will still say that I love snow.

P.S. My fridge isn't working.  The freezer is but not the fridge. 
Not fun.  I feel like a pioneer.  Sure can't afford a new one so keeping my fingers crossed that the repairman will be able to fix it tomorrow.

Oh, I don't like the hot weather either, especially all the triple digits we are having. I am way ready for cooler weather and wouldn't even mind a good snow. I love snow but not ice, here we get more ice than snow.

Sorry about your fridge and I hope you can get that fixed and it not cost a lot.

Hope you have no more of those awful headaches, they are way too painful.

Stay cool and safe and I will hope with you that we get a break from the heat very soon. Hugs

Oh Debby, I giggled to see the photo of snow! I thought to myself, "There's snow in Ohio where Debby lives!" The storms have just passed through delaying yard work that has to get done before leaving for FR. Definite prayers that your repairman will free you from prison! Have a great weekend ahead! E

I'll take your heat Debby! I hate snow. I think it's pretty to look at but I am not a cold weather girl at all. I am a baby when it comes to cold and I own it!

Did the repairman ever fix your fridge?
