Boredom..New Purses..Jamboree in the Hills..Headaches

What a combo, huh?

This weather is really bummin' me out. It is so hot and humid outside that I don't even want to go outdoors. But on the flip side, I am so sick of being indoors all day.
I do manage to get outside in the evenings with the kids when it's a bit cooler but I follow that with sitting on the porch swing until late at night. Thus, I don't get into bed until late and want to sleep in the next day.
Bad Habit for me to start!
So, I think I am officially ready for FALL to get here with it's cooler temperatures.

I couldn't think of a thing to get into (indoors) on Saturday so I decided to grab some fabric and be productive. I sat watching Jamboree in the Hills on tv as I cut and pinned together the four soon-to-be purses pictured above.
I am so glad that our local tv station broadcasts the Jamboree. Each year we all sit around (in the comforts of our homes) and watch as new up and coming bands perform as well as the many *Greats* of country music. I think the biggest crowd pleaser each year has got to be Neal McCoy. He interacts with the crowd like no other.
HERE is a link to WTOV9. You can click on it and see who all performed this year as well as watch backstage pass clips and view lots of photos.

Sunday was a wasted day with awful headaches that would NOT go away. I pretty much did nothing other than lay around in misery.
No headaches today (as of yet) so I'm off to sew those purses and maybe bake some zucchini bread as well as a few other chores so I'll catch up with you all later on!

This sure has been a hotter than average spring and summer here, hope there are no more headaches for you! When i get a migraine now & then, forget it, I'm done for the day:( Can't wait to see those purses:)

Watch out, as getting hot while sleeping can give a heck of a headache! I have to keep it very cold at night or I get sick with a headache that lasts a whole day. Hope you feel better soon and that this crazy weather straightens up. Here's to an EARLY FALL.

Hope you're feeling better. I stayed in all day at the office. Not even a a quick outing at lunch and now I'm sitting in front of the air conditioner. There are Walmarts in NY state, but none in New York City. I love visiting them when I'm out of town.

Hoping your headache is better! I'm not a fan of the heat either, I never feel too well in it. Stay cool and have a great day! ;-)
Blessings, Jill

The heat does take the fun out of summer, doesn't it? I can handle temps in the 80's but these hot and humid 90+ days are pulling everyone down. I hate to see my electric bill with the AC running constantly--an unusual thing for us. Like you, we're staying up later to be outside, but I still have to get up early to go to work so I'm just more tired than ever.
