Is it May?



I must say it has been a cool May. The pool opening was yesterday and it was too chilly for us to go! I am sure my little swimmer would have swam anyway but I didn't want him to turn blue and then argue with him about getting out of the pool to go home! It's usually well on it's way to hot and humid and miserable by the end of April and here we are in the middle of May and it is still around 70. Last year yesterday was 85 and last year we broke the all time record of most consecutive days of 90+ degree weather. I need to not complain! It has been gorgeous to go outside and walk, sit on the screened porch for lunch (too cold in the morning) and lovely in the evening after dinner and my husband has actually sat out on the porch with me and talked. He never leaves the AC. This is rare in NC. So my only concern is my little swimmer who is so excited :) It will be hot and miserable in due time and then I will wonder why I said this. I was reading a blog of someone who lives in the Chicago area saying her kids wanted her to set up the pool because it was so warm. I think it might have been a high of 60. I guess it is all relative LOL!

I have no idea what happened to the picture of the second card on my last blog. I checked back for the original and do not have it. I must have been half asleep when I worked on that image! Ugh! Well today's image is intact and I am going to post it even though I have not sent these out yet and it is way early... here is my June SOTM for HM! Stamp of the Month for House Mouse. I saw the little wooden pencils in AC Moore a month ago and though they would be perfect for this card! Then I couldn't figure out how to incorporate them but in the end I am happy with how it turned out. I love seeing what everyone does with these cards, they all come out different. I used the color challenge of soft sky, pumpkin pie and purely pomegranate. Although I think the third color may be some other red, I kind of liked this and went with it. I used the pumpkin designer paper, it perks this up nicely :)

Hey!

It was 93 degrees yesterday in Long Beach and it is going to be 90today! We usually have the marine layer in mid-May with no sun until 4:00 o'clock. Crazy!!!

By the way, this card is perfect after a long day of teaching. Love the card :)

No biggy, I was just kidding around with you. :-) You just can't hear the expression in a voice by reading what someone says.
