Whew! If you have never been to Arizona in July, you haven't cooked! I'm talking HOT!! Of course we have it good here compared to places like Yuma and Gila Bend, or even Phoenix - which is usually a good 8-10 degrees hotter than here. The kids and I ventured out this morning to participate in our Bible teaching work, and lasted a couple of hours with help from a water and doughnut break at Bashas'!
After lunch we went to hunt for our friends the Looneys (names have been changed to protect the insane...err, innocent!). They have been waiting for their house to be done for almost a year, and finally got to move yesterday, yay! They admirably survived 3 previous moves in the last year, including having to live with us for 5 months...I don't know how they put up with us for that long, lol! Anyway they finally got their place, and it's sooooo nice! :) While they were finishing up at their old house, I took their boys and my boys to the bowling alley. We met up with another friend of ours who had her grandson with her so a good time was had by all (except perhaps the staff at the bowling alley who had to listen to their shrieks and fix the machine a few times - they did a wonderful job of pretending they didn't mind!).
Fortunately, July in Arizona also means "Monsoon Season"! So, on the way home we were pelted with high winds and buckets of rain. We didn't mind since the temperature cooled off dramatically and we came home to race inside and watch the plants as they doubtless were saying "Yeeeeeesssss!"
Needless to say, my Etsying went by the wayside today. But tomorrow I will be photographing some wonderful unique sachets which Megzy, who is the better seamstress, helped me out with. They are made from upcycled fabrics, with buttons and beads added for flair! I'm very excited and I hope they will get some good attention in my store. If you haven't voted in my poll yet, please let me know your Potpourri Preferences so I will have even more of an idea what people use and would like to see. Leave me a comment too!
