Long days of summer

Living in San Diego, I really don't feel right about complaining too much about the weather. We really do have the weather market cornered and despite all of my whining and muttering, I DO realize how good we have it. That being said, UGH!! The heat is here!!!!! I have no tolerance for heat - I never have. Anything over 75° is uncomfortable and anything over 80° and everyone around me is uncomfortable. I hate sweating too - it makes doing everything more difficult.
Yesterday, I realized that I wasn't the only one I the house that was miserable. The cat didn't want me to touch him and throughout the day he got longer

And longer

And longer.

Maybe that is the REAL reason the call them the 'long days of summer'.

Ridiculous amounts of packaging

WOW! I really suck at this blogging thing! It has been almost a
year since I have blogged. I didn't THINK my life was that boring but thinking back, there wasn't all THAT much that a reader would miss. Just about the only exciting thing that I HAVE done? - Well after 20 years of wanting one, I FINALLY got my nose pierced. I figured at 40 I should stop worrying about what everyone else thinks.

Well, said nose ring is surgical steel which, like most metals, I am allergic to. SO, I ordered a white gold one that arrived today with EXORBANANT amounts of packaging. They could have stuck this thing in an envelope for the price of a stamp and no one would have known the wiser.

But, they boxed it - OK, but in a much larger box than necessary.

And then in an envelope that was
too big for the box... - come on REALLY? THIS THING IS TINY!

Anyway, it is super cute and I love it - I just hate that it required so much paper and plastic.

I hope you are enjoying your summer. I will write more soon - I PROMISE!!
