Summer is flying by!

I hope everyone is enjoying summer and the warm or HOT weather.  It has been hot here and we have had some severe storms come through in the last day.  Yesterday we were without electricity again for 3 hours.  That is the sixth time in the six months we have lived here.  Wow!  What can you do without electricity?  I get bored really quick without my sewing machine, Internet, lights, etc.  If we think about it, how long has electricity been in existance?  I am spoiled.  I always think about the story I read how the ladies would go up in the top of the barn during the day and sew or tat thread so they would be warm above the cattle.  Only problem was it was pretty dark so they used oil lamps to see.  When they reached the ripe old age of about 25 their eye sight was pretty much gone from straining to see.  If they happened to kick over the oil lamp they had another problem!  We are so lucky to have so many conveniences!  I finally finished Dixy, the mohair Boston Terrier Puppy and listed her on EBay today.  I hope you have a nice day and enjoy the weekend coming up.

  2. That's a very interesting story--I never heard that before! We definitely are spoiled when it comes to convenience, but then again, it's nice to go without for just a little while! I love Dixy!
