Burn the land and boil the sea.

Will someone turn the heat down?  My hands are sweaty and it's hard to write my blog.

I haven't figured out a way to get the cool air from the air conditioned room into my spare room where my computer is.  I was going to take a photo of the current system, but my bedroom looks like a bomb exploded in there.  IT'S TOO HOT TO CLEAN!

Great!  Now the backs of my knees are getting sweaty.  We better make this quick.

It's July.  My favorite picture is on the calender.  It's shows a piglet diving into a lake while a duck wrapped in a towel watches from the shore.

I started a new craft project.  I wanted to start making some more things for mom's shop so they would be ready for Christmas shoppers.  They are potholders.  I know!  Potholders?  Sheesh.  Haven't I made enough of those yet?  But these are different and cool and I'm hoping they sell.

Oh and I want to say one thing about this Mel Gibson stuff.  Everybody is all shocked and appalled by him and HELLO! he did the same thing five years ago when I originally started boycotting him (give or take, it's too hot to look up facts.)  I have not knowingly watched a movie that Mel Gibson has been a part of for five years.  Everybody always makes fun of my boycotting things, but if we all banded together things might actually change.  If everybody canceled their cable tomorrow, you can bet your bottom dollar prices would come way down.  But the fact remains that no one but me and Katie are willing to go without cable.  Although she hasn't boycotted Mel Gibson one bit.  Kept trying to talk me into seeing that Apocalypto movie.  And NO, I HAVEN'T SEEN AVATAR BECAUSE I'M BOYCOTTING JAMES CAMERON FOR BEING A NOT VERY NICE PERSON.

Alright, I'm off.  I'll leave you with this so you don't think I've gone mad.

Potholders are a great addition! I know my grandmother makes potholders, washrags, scrubbers, and ovenhandle towels almost every year. They're fantastic!

Can I have that picture when you're done with that calendar?

Also, I love the colors you are using for that pot holder.

Absolutely you can have that picture. There are a bunch of good ones in that calendar. I'll let you go through it after I get a new one. The potholders are coming along good. It's nice to crochet again!

Is the pattern on the potholder a star??? Can I make star potholders??? I want to blog. I go to post one and I just stare at the screen.
For now I will just live vicariously through you. . . .
