It's been another HOT day! We got some much needed rain but it seems to have only made the weather more humid and sticky. I have been busy tidying up the house and trying to get all my orders done before I leave. I have neglected my poor flower beds because I just cannot tolerate this heat. I still have lots to do before I leave and to all my customers if you place a order Fri-Sun for a in stock item it will ship first thing Monday morning.
I just know I will forget something for this trip; I made a list but something will get left behind. Lol, I don't realize just how high maintenance I am until I am getting ready to go some where. The must haves are my blow dryer, make up and flat iron. The rest no biggie if I forget them. I am almost dreading going now because the weather man said we were going to have a "mini heat wave" this weekend. With temps in the upper 90's. Oh joy! Blessings to you all!
