The Heat, A Holiday and A New Necklace

It's so hot here ! Hot and dry. Not nearly as bad as hot and humid, but still... it's hot. Perfect for spending the fourth of July sleeping out in a tent, right ? Well, if you like saunas, then yes, perfect. That's exactly what we did for Independence Day. We spent the holiday camping in the backyard and watching the fireworks displays across the valley. Of course, some of the fireworks looked like tiny little explosions but hey, it was fun !

My son and his girlfriend hanging out:

My daughter and Molly (Grandma's yorkie):

And my husband.... GOLFING... in the field:

The day before we had gone to the Freedom Festival, which is a city festival with loads of booths and activities. It was too HOT HOT HOT and I think I may have gotten a little heat exhaustion.

As a reward for all my hard work (haha) I bought a pendant from TotusMel. I have always thought tatting was just cool and amazing and so pretty and have admired those that can do it. I tried once, in my very early teens, to teach myself to tat and alas, no luck. I put the pendant onto one of my necklaces and I just love love love it !! I do apologize for my freckly transparent red-headed skin, ugh. :)

I do recommend shopping with TotusMel, her shop is amazing !!

Here's hoping you're enjoying air conditioning or cooler temperatures !!

camping in the backyard always sounds fun! Next week, we're heading to yr region, flying in to Vegas from Tokyo, then to national parks & canyons in a RV. Our first time in an RV - hope the aircon doesn't break down!
