Hot in PA

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are all staying cool where ever you are. It topped 102 here yesterday and will be even hotter today. It is 8 AM and already 87 degrees with a real feel of 101 UGH!  I have to run to the bank this morning and to the eye dr. this afternoon. It took me too long to get this appointment so I can't cancel it. 

Yesterday I went to PT and  I was the only one there! I guess the heat chased everyone indoors but I felt like the sooner I go the sooner I will feel better and be done.  Hopefully everyone will cancel at the eye dr. to and I can get in and out in under an hour.  

I wanted to let you all know about a great summer give-a-way over on Measi's Musings. Here are the details:

I’ve been itching a bit to have another giveaway – and a recent trip to Bush Mountain Stitchery sparked some inspiration on how to theme it.  :)
So… I’m excited to open entries for my Summer Fun Giveaway!  The winner will receive:
- Summer at the Shore by Country Cottage Needleworks
- Cape Cod Summer by Pickle Barrel Designs
- Six skeins of Gentle Arts hand-dyed threads in colors themed to summer (including Thundercloud, labeled as a limited edition color).

I like her blog and after going to Cape Cod last summer I have fallen in love with the place so the patterns are just perfect! 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and manage to stay cool.  I'm going to head out before it gets any hotter.


  1. I'm so jealous, Rose. We've had rotten weather this past week - it's the wettest July in 60 years! It's cold, windy, wet and generally miserable. I know it's winter but I'm so over cold! I would love some of your hot right now.

    I've got chilblains on my toes - they hurt :(

  2. Thanks for the heads up on the give away.

    Stay cool -- this heat is insane!

  3. Rose - it's great to meet you, and thanks for the giveaway promotion. :)

    My mom & extended family lives in Lehigh Valley (Easton and Bethlehem).

  4. Eeek at the weather!!!! I hope the weekend got cooler?
