When there are storms hovering around, we tend to get rather spectacular sunsets. Yesterday, we didn't really have much chance at actual rain, just the heavy, oppressive feeling. And, of course, hotter than ever!
Having grown up in New England, I know from the heat/humidity combo which is now called the "Discomfort Index." In fact, as I'm typing this tonight, the temperature is 73 degrees and the humidity is 71%. That's Eastern weather, folks, and we are in the desert out here in the middle of a drought!
Of course I'm going to compound matters by heading a little east tomorrow--only as far as Goodyear, Arizona, though.
What's there, you may ask. Well, even though neither Google Maps nor Yahoo Maps can find it, Bearly Stitchin' is there. Since their move from Pasadena last year, the owners have gotten their shop up and running, and they're sponsoring another of their Mystery Quilt Weekends, this one geared to the California contingent. Chartered bus and hotel have been arranged, and we'll sew at the shop. We've been promised a/c in all the places, so I'm hopeful that I'll survive.
At least, I'm sure I'll have some good "hot" titles for the next few blog posts. Of course, I have no guarantee of internet access, although I am taking the laptop with me. I suppose I can always write the posts, then publish them when I return.
Can you tell I may have a stowaway? Hi-Hi seems to think that, if he fits in the suitcase, he can come.
Surprise! No kitties allowed. Chris and Jack have two dogs who usually have the run of the store, so that wouldn't make for a warm welcome for a furboy. Sorry, fella, but it's only for two nights, so try to be a big boy, okay??
One last cutie-pic. Little Miss has learned to pick up and eat Cheerios all by herself. I'd say she looks pretty happy about her new skill!
Goodnight for now. Hopefully, I will be able to post tomorrow, but if I don't you'll at least know where I am.
