Get That Monkey Off My Back!

Did you ever feel that way?  You've started something and then it just seems to linger and haunt you?  That's kind of how I feel about this project I've been working on.  Guess what!  I finished the necklace part!!!!  Finally.  whew.  I also finished the pendant.  I need to bead the bail for the pendant next, but that shouldn't take too terribly long.  And then I need to get a clasp for the necklace.  I was soooo bummed out when I finished it and realized I didn't have a clasp.  I know I bought two just last week, but I have no idea what happened to them.  Maybe they're around somewhere.  Or maybe I used them and just don't remember.  *sigh*

MY CAR NOW HAS A/C!!!!!  For those of you who don't know, I live in the stifling heat in the Valley of the Sun, Scottsdale, Arizona.  Temps the last couple of days have been about 115F.  It's an unbearable heat.  You walk outside and you instantly feel dehydrated like a raisin.  Your eyeballs dry out.  Your mouth is parched.  And what fluids you do have in your body are now sweating out of you.  And inside the car is even hotter than outside.  I've been without A/C in my car for about 2 years now.  It's been miserable for 6 months out of the year.  I could only bear to drive late at night when the sun has been down for hours (even now at 11:30 p.m. it is still 99 degrees outside!) and have the windows open, whipping that hot air right back in my face.  But that hot air is still better than the stagnant, suffocating heat inside the car.  It cost us a lot of money, but my husband FINALLY said we could get it fixed!!!!  That's the highlight of my week.  That, and finishing that dang necklace.

Sorry I don't have any pics of anything to show you right now.  I have been working on a few things, but there might be some exciting things coming up in my future.  I will let you know more when I am able to divulge secrets.  What are you all working on?

I hope all of you are having a good week.  And I just want to say HELLO! to my new followers.  Thank you for joining me!  Feel free to jump in with comments at any time!

GLAD you got air. To some, that may seem like a necessity..a priority to have it fixed. But I just paid $754 to have the lock on my ignition replaced so some of us must bide our time on fixing things that don't make the car actually GO! I can relate to the air. It's been out on Terry's truck for a long time.

Hope you find your clasps. If you are like me, they are still stuck in the bag and something got put on top of it. Go buy a new one and the ones you bought will magically appear. Those elves like to play with us like that.

Have a great day Lisa. Keep cool.
xx, Carol

So all that , "but, it's a dry heat" really isn't the case, is it? I guess when it's 115 it doesn't really matter if it is dry or not! Glad you can crank up the AC again!
