There is an old saying here that "If you don't like the weather in Missouri wait a day it'll change!" I think there are quite a few places that say that but I grew up here and heard it all the time. It has certainly changed-seemingly over night. We have gone from below normal temperatures to way above normal temperatures (like in the low to middle 90F with heat indices nearing 100F--HOT!) Some of you might remember that I am not a big fan of hot weather, also Quinn is not a fan! I spend a great deal of time opening a door for her to either go out or come in! When she comes in she paws at the one floor register if the air isn't on-guess she thinks that will make it work! We have also gone from day after day of rain-hoping it will stop long enough to mow the grass BEFORE you need to bale it as hay to I think I need to water the flowers. Unfortunately for those of us who don't love the hot weather this is only the beginning, sigh.
But, Quinn and I are leaving for Montana on the 20th! (I hope. Might be a couple of days later.) Where it is cooler, much cooler. At night you need a coat and three quilts-AH heaven!
Getting ready to load the trailer is messy. Ceili is parked in underground caves and I don't have access to her unless I take her out. I can't park her here at the house as city ordinances prevent parking her on the street unless she's hooked up and I really don't want to drag her around behind me for a week or so! I decided that I would get everything sorted out that I am taking with me and put it into the garage. That way I could clean the house so it will be ready to show. I've taken nearly a week and it looks like a whole lot of stuff but Ceili holds a lot and some of it is stuff that once it's entered to the computer it will be tossed out. I plan to be gone a long time so I have to think about things I want to do, especially in the evenings.
Yesterday, Brayden held his first "Drink and Think" Lemonade stand to raise money for brain cancer research. The last I heard he had over $125 US! At 10, he came up with this idea completely on his own. None of us have any idea why he picked brain cancer but it's a good one! Beth had to work so I helped him run it, in the heat. About 3pm he stood up said "That's it, it's too hot out here we're closing up!" So we did. I am really proud of him!
Today, Kolby had a baseball game. Machine pitch-which as Lucas says lasts about 3/4 of an hour too long! He's 7. He made an amazing play at first base-the ball was thrown way right and he just reached his bare right hand out and caught it! No way he'd have gotten a glove on it. It was one of those things you forever wish you had on video (or at least a photo) and could never capture!
No sewing going on but maybe later today. Hot and humid takes it out of me and I don't like to sew when I'm tired.
New Suzie O'Connell coming for me to Beta read maybe tonight or tomorrow-Can Not Wait!
