I received my summer seasonal exchange today from Sarah. It is a LK design using over dyed floss with the addition of the little yellow sun glasses. Aren't they cute? I have it with my other summer stitchery in our entry way. It sets on the cabinet of my grandmother's treadle sewing machine. I love it. That cheered me up. It is still hot in Okmulgee, Oklahoma. Sunday is supposed to be 99 and that is cool for us. We have had 40 days with unseasonably hot weather. At least 20 degrees over the norm. My poor old lawn is so sad and now we have mandatory water rationing, only water with a container, no sprinklers. :(

I mailed my BBD Christmas ornament this morning. The post office was open, and I didn't have to change one thing on my package. That is a miracle!!!! The post office makes me mad just like shopping at Wal-Mart. It should take the exchange 5-10 days. We'll see. :)
My stitching partner and good friend are walking at Wal-Mart in the mornings at 6:30. When school starts that will have to change to 5:00. I may lose her. I go to water aerobics 4 times a week and try to walk in the mornings. With our 114 degree weather we have stayed inside. It is really miserable now. I don't have a lawn anymore, it is burned up. A good friend and I went to Wisconsin last week to visit the Dominican Sisters that were the principal and religious education director at our small school and our church here in Okmulgee. They are our family. The corn is burned up and there are no ears. I had better get a bicycle to ride to work now. I know gas will go sky high. It's just 50 miles to work. So I had better get a scooter. That makes me laugh just thinking about it.
May your days be filled with joy and happiness. Stay cool.
