Anyway... while I live in a tourist area, and the tourist business keeps me employed, and it's great seeing the crowds rolling in for summer vacations.... sometimes it can get frustrating for the locals to get to & from work, lunch, errands, daily life, etc. through all the traffic. (I think more than anything I'm just jealous of all the vacationers, I wish I were in their place.) But today while sitting at a stoplight in traffic, there was a family in a SUV with their windows rolled down (I cracked mine so I could listen), it appeared to be a couple around their mid 40's with a couple younger teenagers in the back... bathing suits still on, chairs & beach stuff piled in the back, they had Lenny Kravitz "Fly Away" cranking out of the stereo, and they were all singing along... it made me smile. That seems so simple, a smile, just because a family was singing in their car.... but it warmed my heart. I continued on my way home with a feeling of peace that I haven't felt all week.....
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and finds a little bit of joy and peace along the way.... Tomorrow is a new day....

Pretty much just stay in the AC as much as possible! :)
I do like a nice tall glass of unsweetened iced tea though. I'm pretty simple about that, just some regular Liptons tea. I have one of those Iced Tea Makers, easy peasy. I like some of the fancy teas hot in the winter but I don't like sweet iced tea at all. I know, I know, I'm a southerner & I don't like sweet tea, unusual. I'm just not much on sweet drinks period, I drink coffee in the winter black, the flavored teas that I drink in winter are sweet enough without sugar, & I drink diet sodas cause they don't taste as sweet as regular ones.....
I like lemonade, but I'm more of a pink lemonade gal.... but speaking of lemons, I have some new markers listed in my etsy store. I'm also donating a set of these & my lemon tape measure for a prize in one of the Keepin Cool Dishcloth Swap contests....

Time for Whiskers on Wednesday! Those of you who are owned by a kitty or kittys go on over, check out the blog & join us!! Jessi & Monica have started a little contest too!! Three easy ways to enter! :)
Once again, I got "The Look" from Jasmine... at least she let me snap a photo this week of her face instead of her butt! LOL
I didn't even use the flash this time.... she usually has such a sweet expression, really!!
(Please excuse the cement floor... we still haven't gotten any tile put down in the kitchen... my husband is in the construction business, need I say any more??)
It's hard to believe that my baby turned 7 this Spring. Seems like I just brought her home yesterday!!

First of all & my least favorite, we know that Summer has truly arrived when the heat arrives! And I mean HOT, STICKY, HUMID, yuck! We have very little Spring here, it tends to go from 50/60 to 100 in the span of a couple of days. I know it gets hotter in other places, but just yuck! I'm a Fall person myself.....
Secondly, I work in a tourist based business so we know when Summer has arrived when it gets super busy at work.... everyone is finally on vacation. Except us! LOL

Just look at those ears & tail! LOL And she used to chase the litter around her litter box, round & round, too funny!
But she sure grew up to be a beautiful princess! And Princess is the perfect word to describe her! You guys will learn more over the next weeks, I don't want to tell everything about her on the first post! :)
I leave you with the only shot I could get of her the last couple of days! LOL Well, she does have a pretty tail, maybe she is just showing it off, ha ha!

And this photo is long overdue, I plead insanity due to sickness. Super Duper Terri sent me a care package.... She included an A sticky note pad, a bar of wonderfully smelling soap, some whipped soap, a card & some of her BEAUTIFUL hand dyed yarn in PURPLE! Thanks so much Terri! If I ever get caught up on my projects I have lots of wonderful yarns to choose for my next one! Or three, I'm bad about that startitis.
