Just Normal "Hot"

We are back from DC with great memories. Congratulations to John and Sharon. There won't be pictures for a couple of reasons. One, I was always a bit late to get the camera in focus, and Two, no one at the Apple Store has a solution yet to my photo uploading problem. We'll keep working on it. The cool kids at the Apple store don't sync well with old, out-of-date PC's and an older out-of-date PC user. I expect that as all the gadgets die here at Chez Simpson - they will be replaced with Apple products that will talk and sync with my iPhone like magic. Until then, it's uncharted territory.

This was waiting for us when we got back. The wovens and tickings from American Banner Rose. These are really nice, people. Woven lovers will, well.... love them.

Wovens go well with Fall and Winter. I anticipate lots of homey, soft quilts made with them. We must use our imagination to think of cool Fall days right now. Thankfully, it is just normally hot right now here in Michigan. Not obscenely hot like it was last weekend. I hope you folks down in Texas and Arizona get some relief soon also. We all swapped "keeping cool" tips at the wedding. We were quite comfortable at our indoor noon reception, but we had sympathy for the folks setting up their afternoon ceremony OUTSIDE at the same country club. I hope that bride and groom were toasted with Gatorade.

What do you do to stay cool? What is your favorite hot weather treat? Just make a comment here about that before midnight, Wednesday the 27th and the American Banner Rose Woven Fat Quarter Bundle™ could be yours.

Speaking of HOT, hope you like this. Poor Tiger Don Kelly is HOT, but not because of weather, because of his teammates.

Kind of boring, but my favorite way to beat the heat is drinking lots of ice cold water - no lemon or flavorings of any kind! Mmmmmm - so refreshing!

DebrafromMD said...

We just installed a geothermal system to provide our heating and cooling. It's keeping us wonderfully comfortable and our $52.00 utility bill is the envy of the neighborhood.

SueB said...

A nice glass of good ole Ice Tea. You cant beat it.

Amy R said...

Cantaloupe soup is a great solution for hot. . . but then again, a Tangueray and tonic can sometimes do the trick!

Lisa said...

I stay inside, with the AC cranked!! I get heat-induced migraines, so being without AC is impossible. If it goes out, I'll have to go to a hotel.

badlandsquilts said...

Sangria wine slush...normally a sweeter drink than I prefer but I love the icy slush on a hot day!

Juliann said...

I do hope you all get some relief from the heat soon. I grew up in Arizona so I have had enough hot to last me a long time.
I have this wonderful neck wrap that keeps me cool. It has some sort of gel inside and you soak it in water and the gel expands and made a cool necklace. I use it on those nights when I know the heat will keep me awake. And a nice bucket of cold water for my feet helps too.

Jacque. said...

Laurie...my fave way of staying cool is lounging poolside while cabana boy fans me. {you know, like back in Cleopatra's day}

Cabana boy looks like - take your pick - Alex O'Loughlin or Mark Wahlberg.

Course, it's difficult to get any sewing done that way...

Monica said...

I haven't found a good way to be 106 degree temperature yet except staying directly in front of the fan. I feel like that guy in the Maxell cassette commercial...or maybe a doggie with its head out the window. Take your pick...LOL.

maggiesfarm said...

I keep cool by living in Oregon. This is the summer of clouds, rain and layers of clothing. Maybe in August the heat will get turned on, but I'm not counting on it.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Last week we stayed cool by hanging in the lake! But we are no longer on vacation so it AC for us on those nasty hot days! I love making a homemade Orange Julius (recipe can be found online by googling Orange Julius recipe) and the kids love it too! Way cheaper than buying one at an OJ stand!

Love that fabric, especially the ticking...just something about ticking that is so appealing!

Linda K said...

Cold, cold watermelon does it for me. But a vodka tonic with lime would be welcomed, too, when you can't sit in a beach chair with your toes in the water ( then it doesn't matter how hot it is!). Thanks so much for the chance to win those awesome homespuns. I'm always on the hunt for them, so I'm happy to see your beautiful stack.

Thelma said...

I've taken to drinking iced coffee in the morning instead of my regular hot coffee, it's a nice cool way to start the day!

Elizabeth Ann said...

I love to sit in front of a small fan and sew away. A nice cold drink of water and maybe a few bites of chocolate.

Sharon said...

Close up the house in the a.m. and open up everything on the shady side with fans in the windows. Also breezy cotton/linen shirts!

Libby said...

Current favorite hot weather treat is orangeade. Our new home has an orange tree, making this a home-grown summer delight!

Kimberly said...

I have hubby put the air conditioners in and put them on 64 degrees and stay inside. It's Maine though, so it doesn't last long!

Pip said...

Sitting in front of a fan always helps, but my favourite hot weather treat is an ice-cream, eaten in an air conditioned shopping mall so it doesn't melt too quickly :)

Jacqueline said...

My favorite way to beat the heat is to spend the day at Narragansett Town Beach in southern Rhode Island. Nothing beats a day at the beach here in Little Rhody!

pdudgeon said...

how to beat the heat? stay inside, stock the fridge with very cold bottled water, and pass out some bottles to those working outside.

Quilting by the Lake said...

Staying cool with no air conditioner here in PA means spending time in the basement and turning the ceiling fans full speed! Favorite treat - love ice cream! Oh.. .and I love, love, love Wovens!!!! Thanks for the chance to win this lovely bundle!

SheilaS said...

We don't have air conditioning and so when it is as hot as it was last week-we just didn't move much! Thankfully, our house is on a very wooded lot and so we close it up and it stays fairly cool. Oh-and I eat A LOT of ice cream!

Nancy E said...

I keep cool by staying inside and drinking ice water or ice tea. I try not to venture outside in the heat.

Linda said...

My new favorite obsession is making fruit smoothies in the blender.
Sometimes I add in some yogurt.
So good and you can call it lunch!
Linda

Taryn said...

I am not sure if this qualifies as a way to stay cool but I complain a lot and get really grumpy. Okay, I know it doesn't count but I can't help it.

Lizzie said...

Gosh, keeping cool is just a dream at the moment here, but when summer finally comes I'll be looking to find a beach with a cool southerly breeze and some little waves of water to dip my toes in....bliss!

Sandy said...

I work in pulp and paper manufacturing where it it hot, hot,hot. I try to pick up my samples early in the morning and then stay in the lab in AC the rest of the day! Chuckle, Chuckle! Anyway I love American Rose Wovens. They are on my wish list!

Mary said...

My favorite way to stay cool is inside at the sewing machine with the AC running. My favorite cool-down treat is vanilla ice cream covered with orange juice.

Janet said...

I do my best to sleep through it! And I'll take a nap as my treat!

Love the new fabrics!

Terry said...

My favorite way of cooling down is a big old bowl of watermelon!
Terry

Laurie in Iowa said...

My solution to the excessive heat is to stay indoors with the central air making me comfortable.
I still have to go outdoors to walk the pups though... haven't found a solution for that yet.

Michele said...

There is just NO way to beat the heat.

However, I do the following things to avoid the heat:
Stay in side
Work on sewing projects in the basement
Lift nothing heavier than fabric
and...
drink, drink, drink and then have another drink.

I loooooooooooooove the wovens!

Susie said...

No a/c at home, boo hoo, so we take car rides. Been making my own icy drinks like you can buy at the place that starts like Star*****. Experimenting is good with those flavored coffee creamers, like the Almond Joy or the amaretto, mmmmm. I don't care for the coffee so my frappucino's at home are coffee-less and a lot cheaper.

Laurie said...

I love my big front porch and gazebo in the back yard so I don't mind the heat so much -- but the humidity kills me!!! so thank goodness for A/C. When the humidity is up I hide in my sewing studio. Thanks for a chance to win - laurie

dortha said...

Watermelon is how I beat the heat. Good cold watermelon. The wovens look beautful.dorthac@aol.com

Simply Lemonaid--it's delicious and pure summertime

Robin said...

I love to sit out on my patio once the sun has moved to produce shade on it.

Mimi said...

I am not even thinking of when it might be cooler.....8 weeks at least....so I have made treats for the dogs. Kongs with chicken broth frozen inside.... Lasted all of 13 minutes, but have to hope they were happy minutes for the pups. My drink of choice: 44 diet coke with lime and extra lime, please.

Cecilia said...

I live in south Georgia, so I'm somewhat used to the heat. My favorite way to keep cool is to stay inside and quilt! :) My favorite cool treat would be ice cold watermelon. Thanks for the giveaway, the fabric looks lovely.

Mary Lou Casada said...

Iced tea...but truth be known, I'm a total house cat (no offense to the pooch! LOL) -- and stay in the air conditioning and quilt! :-D I'm a total wimp!
Blessings,
Mary Lou

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

Ice water, ice tea, a fan to move the air and I'm usually happy. :-) Thanks for the chance on the wonderful bundle!

sandra said...

Stay in the AC, eat lots of ice cream and drink water and ice tea.

WoolenSails said...

My favorite way to stay cool is to kayak on the bay when the waves are up, lol. Bad thing is, you feel cool, but the sun can still burn the heck out of you;) When I can afford it, my favorite is to head to Maine.

Debbie

Kathryn said...

I love a big slice of watermelon to cool off. Kathie L in Allentown

Linda said...

The only way I can beat the heat is to stay inside with AC. Some days I only go outside to get the mail! My favorite treat is an icy margarita!

Fiesta said...

I take a nice dip in the pool. It is so unbearibly hot here that I basically do not have a choice.

Christine said...

Sewing with a fan nearby!

Pat / Silver Thimble Quilt Co. said...

I wait till no one is in the house..stand in front of the side by side freezer naked while I polish off all the ice cream and any other frozen treats.

Repeat process next day.
Just kidding!

Love from Hotlanta!

Nyla said...

Just stay inside with the air conditioning and sew under a fan. Favorite treat is homemade frozen fruit cream, yum! Having some right now! Love the woven fabrics, lovely colors!!!

Kristy said...

Oh my gosh, I am loving those wovens...the tickings are fabulous. Now to stay cool....a blizzard from Dairy Queen hits the spot. As if this heat wave here isn't enough...I startd having hot flashes. I need that fabric to take my mind off of those. :)

Hotquilts said...

The wovens are so pretty! They would cool me down as I'd stay inside and eat Popsicles! Made of fruit juices. Or homemade of lemonade, some made with cherry limeade. Some with fruit chunks in 'em. Just lots & lots of Popsicles. I can eat 'em, just can't spell 'em.

Hotquilts said...

Meaning: I'd stay inside and sew on wovens and eat popsicles!

chrissy said...

Central air conditioning and ice cream make a hot summer evening enjoyable.

Dee said...

I eat lots and lots of Italian Ices. Buy the time I'm done with one, it feels a good 10 degrees cooler. Beautiful fabric! I've been keeping my eye on it at FQS.

debgins said...

I get an orange slushy from the Dairy Bar down the street! Also those Edy's fruit bars are delicious and cool!

Thanks for the giveaway - those fabrics are gorgeous!

vivianjane said...

If I have to be outside I freeze wet wash cloths to put around my neck. It's so refreshing it takes my breath away.
Jane

Cindi P. said...

Going for a swim in the lake (or let's be honest-just floating on the air mattress) is my favorite way to stay cool in the summer.

Lori said...

My favorite summertime treat is cold watermelon!! It cools me off just thinking about it!

Vicki said...

My favorite way to stay cool? Jump in the shower and then barely dry myself, so the water droplets dry on my skin. Then a tall glass of ice water (no fruit) and my small personal fan aimed at my head! Ahhh! Then I try to keep the kitties off my lap while I sew...yeah, right, good luck! (LOL!)

I loooove your wovens! Thanks for the chance to win them!

Vicky F said...

When hot weather hits, I automatically switch to cold foods for meals, such as cut fruit plate with cottage cheese, chicken salad (with nuts and fruit) on a bed of romaine, and a large glass of real lemonade (on the tart side).

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My husband and I go jump in the lake every afternoon when it is hot! We got some tractor inner tubes from the farm store and float around 'til we're both cooled down.

Becky S. said...

To keep cool, I stay in the A/C as much as possible and drink lots of peach iced tea and water. Thanks for the chance to win. The American Banner Rose wovens are beautiful!

Meredith said...

Air conditiong and my favorite treat is bubbly water mixes with real only cranberry juice. I freeze it and it is a great treat

Janet said...

I have a water fight with my kids and husband. Love your fabrics!

Farm Quilts said...

Stay inside and quilt!! I stick my head outside once in a while just to see how hot it is and then back to "cool" stuff!

Ned's Place said...

to keep cool I place ice cream container sized blocks of frozen ice around in my sewing room in front of fans to keep me cool while I sew.

Dixie said...

I know this sounds wierd - but hot tea! It really works to cool you off in an upside down sorta way. It hasn't been too bad in No. Cali this year - lucky to only have a couple 100+ days! Love your new wovens!

Allie said...

Your new wovens are beautiful!! I spent the weekend in the a/c, drinking root beer floats - bet my shorts will be too tight now - but oh they were SO good. My son and I polished off 2 liters of A&W!

Love the video, I hadn't seen that one - hysterical!

Kathryn P. said...

No air conditioning here, so my favorite way is to plop right in front of the fan and doze off. (Heat makes you tired.) My favorite treat - my daughter's homemade lemonade.

Donna K from N.TX said...

I'm one of those sweltering Texans and the way I stay cool is to drink lots and lots of ice cold tea or Dr. Pepper. It helps if you stay inside a wonderfully cool air conditioned place all day and sew. LOL

Donna K. from N. TX

Liv said...

Hi Laurie
Best thing to cool you down in the heat is a nice cup of tea(hot of course) It really works! Love those wovens they really are my cup of tea!

hookinct said...

Tall glass of ice water and feet in kiddie pool! and on the beach in RI under the umbrella!

Kimmyj... said...

Growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan our favorite 'way to stay cool' was to hit the water. Now that my family lives in Virginia, I find my favorite 'way to stay cool' is to sit at my sewing machine in the air conditioning! Thanks for the chance to own that sweet bundle of woven goodness.

Connie said...

Sweet iced tea and staying inside after 10 or so - can't do much outside after that - I'm in NC and it's pretty doggone hot!

Becky said...

We love our Apple products even our old ones. Running the ceiling fan on high and staying indoors in the cool house is doing the trick for us. Iced drinks, watermelon and ice cream help, too:) Glad to see wovens in your new line.

Hildy said...

On a hot day (and we don't have so many in germany)I love ice cream, the real good italian stuff! My favorite is chocolate and yogurt, yummie!
Hildy

Audrey said...

My favorite hot weather treat is Crystal Light Ice tea and Crystal Light Lemonade mixed together in a tall glass of ice. Very refreshing!!! I will also be planning my fall projects with these wonderful woven fabrics!!

Caro said...

I like to sit with my feet dangling in the pool. My feet seem to be my temperature control unit.

Del said...

Here in Florida we work outdoors early, and then come inside to the AC. Then we have Popsicles or ice-cream after lunch or dinner.

Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Me and My Stitches said...

I stay in my sewing room in the a/c! I also found a great chicken salad recipe last week - light and refreshing - a great sandwich for this hot weather.

Sharon said...

My husband and I look forward to the heat every summer. Its when we get to sip our cocktails while floating in the pool.
It's what helps us get thru our Long winters.......

Lizzie said...

Love your new wovens! To stay cool, a nice glass of ice tea outside in the heat. Love the summer heat! Lizzie

Beth Paulson said...

Never have endured such hot and intense humin weather as we are having this summer but I like cold salads, cold watermelon and frozen grapes and lots of ice water!! Love your soft American Rose wovens!! Beth

sforme said...

Love the wovens! Diet coke with lots of fresh lime squeezed in.

Karen said...

Love the fabrics!

I try to stay inside with the AC running and all the ceiling fans on. Closing the blinds when the sun is bright also helps keep the house cooler.

Crystal light lemonade with lots of ice to sip on throughout the day. Occasional frozen treats or a trip to the Dairy Queen for a Blizzard!

When really over-heated, I hold my hands under a cold running faucet.

Mary said...

Stay inside and keep the fans on high. Lemonade and watermelon always make me feel a bit cooler.
Mary

sand said...

My husband and I go to the beach and enjoy the water and breeze. Then back home to the AC. Debbie from Delaware

Jill said...

It has been hard to stay cool the last week, swimming also works for a while. Glad we are finally having a mild day here. Anything cold will work to beat the heat, popsicles, ice cream, ice tea etc...
Thanks for the chance to win the bundle. Keep cool.

Brynne said...

My office is cool enough that I spend 8 hours a day in a sweater. California has been pretty good this year, but if it gets really hot I will just work a bit longer each day.

Smeek said...

Good old Lime Sherbert works for me besides being yummy!!!

Sherry said...

love to sit on the front porch with a huge frappuccino. And I give the dogs a frozen bone which must seem like a popsickle of sorts to them! Love the wovens...they are gorgeous.

Darlene B said...

I'm trying to stay cool by staying in A/C, which I actually don't like. I'd rather have the windows open in the house and hear the birds singing. As far as treats go, my "stay cool" beverage would be brandy slush - so refreshing! My favorite ice cream treat is a Snickers ice cream bar. They should really just write SINFUL on the box, because that is what they are!

Janice R said...

I love to have a nice tall glass of lemonade with lots of ice !

Warren said...

I live about 30 minutes away from you and I agree....its been miserably hot, plus our power was out for 3 days. I drank iced tea (ice from the store would keep sbout 3 hrs in the ice chest), used a battery operated small fan, and a spray bottle full of cold water. I hope DTE has the all the repairs done! Love the fabric colors!

Chris Willis said...

Poolside with an icy cold Margarita, sunscreen, and a favorite book! Perfect hot summer day, if I can't be inside quilting with the A/C on high!

mamabug said...

I can't say we NEVER get hot weather but our hot weather is nothing "I mean Nothing" like the rest of the country. I live in the pacific northwest near the Oregon border. We are on the coast and what we get is fog. It's drippy out there now at 9am. So when we get warm (80's) we just STOP and enjoy it :) Today is my birthday and I'm thinking I will win because positive thinking works for me :) Thank you , you girls are the best!!! Stay cool everyone....kathiebugb@gmail.com

Anonymous said...

Lots of plain iced tea! Plus in the south, we believe in AC! Becky in Georgia

sue said...

Love your new wovens! I can see making a quilt or some doll clothes with them! To stay cool tall glass of iced tea, a fan, and ac...wait in Oregon this summer only have used the ac twice!

Jana said...

This may sounds strange, but hot tea usually does the trick! But I personally love ice tea with lemon. Love your new wovens!
Jana

Judith said...

Juicy, cold watermelon sure beats the heat...especially when you come in from outside. It is refreshing!

We've had a real summer here in Michigan. Our garden loves it!

Thanks for the chance to win. I am excited for American Banner Rose!

Kay said...

I drink lots of iced tea with Sonic ice. There's nothing better than Sonic ice to keep a drink really cold. Love the new wovens & can't wait to get my hands on some.

Lee said...

A root beer float would be cool! thanks for the lovely giveaway!

Woolly Lott Rugs said...

I close up the house and crank up the AC. a big ice cold Diet Pepsi is the best....no lemon and lots of ice!! Love the wovens!! Thanks for the opportunity!

Cyndi
xxoo

quiltnmaryf said...

I drink lots of water, but my favorite treat is a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a half of a sweet ripe cantaloupe. Extra yummy and almost healthy..well, half healthy!

Oh, and use the AC when necessary.

Erin in MI said...

I've been chugging the ice water and having a homemade root beer float in the evenings. Although, I do have to admit - I ran through the sprinkler last week!! And we don't have any kids LOL

the girlfriend gap said...

favorite treat is ice cream from our little local ice cream shoppe the frosty udder :) love the wovens thank
you for a chance to win some
janita

TheLazyQuilter said...

...chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream in a room so air conditioned it feels like a meat locker! :)

Janelle J said...

Some may hate me, but I stay in my air conditioned house. When I do go out it calls for iced tea, lemonade, and ice cream!

Edna said...

Stay in the air conditioning as much as possible and once in a while a great big banana split. Thanks for the chance at your generous giveaway.

Meg said...

We're enjoying a brief break from the heat here in CT at the moment, though I believe we'll be right back in the hot of it over the coming weekend. Ah well. We don't have central air in our little raised ranch, so to stay cool I normally take my book and a big glass of iced flavored seltzer (mmm, pomegranate) down to the recliner in our downstairs den and read with the fan blowing on me. Makes the worst of the heat bearable!

pieceful blessings said...

Living in Texas with day after day of 100+ degree weather is like living in the north during the winter (which I've done). We hibernate inside our air-conditioned homes, cars and shopping centers. It may be hot but at least we don't have to freeze while we wait for the car to warm up or shovel snow off the car before we go anywhere. Plus, it's sunny more days than not and I find the sunshine more energizing than grey dreary winter days. So bring on the heat and sun!!

pamm5 said...

I stay cool by staying inside and sewing!
Iced tea is the best thirst quencher there is!

Beverly said...

Hello,
Best way I've found to beat the heat is to sit indoors in air conditioned coolness and eat ice cream regularly. : )
Your new fabric line is beautiful, as are all your lines!Presently preparing to make the Farmer's Wife Quilt with your lovely fabrics.
Beverly

Becky said...

I jump in the pool and stay there till I have to go to work!

Wendy said...

Lots of ice cold water with a ton of crushed ice will do nicely......and a dip in the ocean, its always refreshing and cools us right down. There is always a nice breeze blowing on shore this time of year.....Heavenly..
Wendy

Sharon S said...

Root beer float popsicles.Crazy, huh? They really hit the spot!

My favorite way to "beat the heat" is to hang out at the local quilt shop and sew! They keep it icy in there!

Sharon said...

Iced passion tea lemonade...yummm.
I am picturing myself sipping on a tall glass of it while sewing on the new woven fabrics :)

Buckeye Quilter said...

My favorite way of staying cool is eating ice cream at Graeter's Ice Cream Shops! Lynette Anderson posted on her blog that she is trying to stay warm because it is snowing all over Australia! Think snow!

Barbara said...

Squirt guns should not be overlooked as a surefire way to have some fun and stay cool. Don't think Apple has one (yet) but there are still some great ones to be had.

Michele said...

Put some Christmas music on and

let it sew * *

Jill S. said...

drinking lemonade under a big shade tree!!!!!

Gwen said...

Iced tea with lemon or lime and fresh mint! It keeps me going in south central Texas!

Anita said...

The only way to stay really cool for me is to go shopping in my air conditioned car to an air conditioned store...preferably a quilt shop :) My favorite cool treat are just plain popsicles, the real fruit ones are great..oh and for Fridays it's Freddos at Petes. They are cool, chocolately, and low cal if you get the "lite" version..yumm

findusfaithful said...

Getting all my outside garden work done early in the morning so that I can stay in the AC the rest of the day. Also eating lots of fruit and drinking fruit smoothies is refreshing! Thanks for the wonderful give away.
Mary

rebecca said...

Staying cool in my air conditioned sewing room works for me!!!

I saw the flaming shoe....naughty of those boys!

Carol Sc said...

This last week in Michigan has proved to me that I would not be happy living in any of the "hot" states! At least the Tigers are relatively hot! Ice tea and a good book are helpful to me in the hot, hot weather --- definitely not quilting a quilt!

Vicky said...

Slurpees!

Anne said...

My family and I keep cool at Lake Ouachita in Arkansas. Yes, it has been blazing hot in Arkansas, but bobbing in the lake and taking in cool breezes somehow seems to relieve the oppressiveness of mid-summer heat. Of course, there's nothing like juicy slices of iced-down watermelon to satiate our thirst and refresh our souls! Nature at its best!

Kyle said...

Something cold to drink, stay inside, and don't turn on the oven.
Thanks for the chance to win.

sndy1 said...

I stay inside with the fan on, all windows closed and eat an ice cream cone!

Mary said...

I love ice packs...on head, neck or feet to keep cool. Also, favorite hot weather treats are icy drinks, of all kinds and Popsicles! Never too old for a popsicle!

joeypack said...

lots of ice tea! sorry if this is double posting, but the first one didnt appear to go thru..

Janet said...

Water straight from the tap - my well is 400 feet down! That washes down fresh sweet strawberries straight from the box - no need to cook or fuss!

edie said...

I make sure my feet are cool! My fav hot weather treat, aside from iced tea, oh, hard decision, my fresh peach pie or Braum's swirl cone. New fabric looks yummy!

Sally A said...

So far here in Oregon it hasn't been hot. Sometimes it rains in the night so that waters the plants. We are at 70-80 these days.
Sally

Lindsi said...

Going to the movies..they always crank the AC!

Jeana said...

Root beer floats! And not diet soda with low fat frozen yogurt but the "fully leaded" version.

Rori said...

Fortunately for me, I live very near the coast in central California and we don't get too much heat. But, when it does get hot, i squirt myself with a mister bottle.

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

I'm eating ice cream and enjoying air conditioning as I read this blog. Both are my favorite ways to enjoy the summer.

Love the bundle of wovens. Your stuff is always great.

Heather said...

I love Raspberry Smoothies, I make them from the fresh ones I pick at the berry farm by my house. They are so simple and so good! I really like wovens, they are so soft. I have my fingers crossed, thank you!!

Kathy said...

I like to cool off with brewed ice tea mixed with fresh lemonade.

nngirl said...

Set my "sole" afire Lord...
