We’re havin’ a heat wave so today I have one of my “a little bit of this and a little bit of that” kind of posts! Some of it silly, some of it helpful, and hopefully none of it boring!!! You’d let me know, wouldn’t you?
Would you believe I just put a snowflake cloth on the table? Yes, snowflakes!!! It is so darn HOT here that I’m hoping it will have us imagining that we’re cool! 😉
Oh and I’m so excited about something I’ve just figured out! You may have read about my saga at the hair salon, (see it here). Recently though, I tried a new tactic! Next time you want a haircut, bring a photo of YOU – one that was taken on a day when your hair looks just the way you like it. No explaining for you to do and no guesswork for the stylist. I just tried it and it worked!!!
Have you noticed that fortune cookies don’t really tell your fortune anymore? I miss that! Lately they all seem to have pithy little sayings but no predictions for the future!
I‘d also like to weigh in on this week’s questions . . .
Pampering at a hotel or camping under the stars?
I’d have go with the hotel stay as opposed to camping. I love the “idea” of sleeping under the stars – but I’d rather do it from the balcony of a penthouse suite in a fancy hotel. Hey! I can dream can’t I? Since I married for love and not money – I fear the penthouse suite will forever be a pipe dream, though! You see, I didn’t listen to my grandmother. She used to jokingly say, “It’s just as easy to fall in love with a rich man!” You would have loved my grandmother – she was a riot!
What would I find hard to live without besides family, friends, and pets??
Definitely indoor plumbing. I know this because we have a well for our water, and of course the pump is run by electricity. Whenever there’s a surprise storm and we lose our power; it’s not just a matter of worrying that food will spoil or that we don’t have enough candles. No, no. Our problem when a power line is down is that we can’t . . . flush! Having had that experience several times over the years has convinced me that I could never live without indoor plumbing.
So, if it’s hot where you are, put out that fabric snowman!
It couldn’t hurt. 😀
