Well, it's Saturday. We're having a heat wave. It made it all the way up to 96 today, breaking a record for the hottest day set back in 1986. When it's this hot, I shut the blinds and crank up the A/C. We've had it on maybe 5 or 6 times this summer. Usually we're fine with the blinds closed and the windows open. Today I went out to water the flowers in the front and nearly wilted. Eventually I'll have to water out back, but I'm too chicken. The last time I went out there I got freaked out by a snake. I threw an empty spray paint can at it after I sprayed it with the hose and it went and hid under my planter box. Yes, I took a picture. See his tail?
We've finally had some hummingbird action. This might seem a little crazy, but we were very stressed and frustrated with the whole house thing and one day Phil asked God for a sign. Specifically he said, "Lord, just send us a hummingbird." Well, we got our sign on a Sunday morning and shortly after we saw it, our offer on the house was accepted. Funny how we waited nearly as long for a hummingbird as we did on the Bank of America. And, in case you were wondering, we're supposed to close on Monday!
I had a pretty lazy week, quite honestly. I scrapped a little bit (working on my week in the life project) and I've read a lot (The Book Thief, a holocaust story by Marcus Zusak). I also decided to join pinterest. I figured if I was spending all that time looking at stuff I might as well have my own boards. And you know how I always say my best ideas are stolen off the internet, well, that's exactly what pinterest is for - stealing everybody else's ideas! There's lots of good school inspiration on there and I'm finding more craft tutorials than I'll ever have time for. If you wanna
