Thinking Cool Thoughts

It's been a long hot, dry summer and still another month to go before any hope of relief.  I'm spending as little time as possible outdoors these days, so I decided to do something productive inside and clean and reorganize my sewing room.

And I may be rushing the seasons just a little bit, but I decided to go ahead and put out a few of my Halloween pieces.

Foxy was a little unhappy about all the hub-bub in her usual quiet, napping spot.

What are you doing to stay cool?

Oh girlfriend I am so ready for Fall.
I rather be inside too.I actually started planning my lists for Christmas saturday. Then I can start each thing and check it off.
So I think Fall things are perfect.
Your sew room looks great.
What a sweetie pie :)

Your room is so lovely! I especially love that cabinet under the window. Pets to Foxy...I'm sure she recovered from your 'interference' lol.

Enjoy your day dear!

I love the first two photos, they look serene & peaceful!
I work out side early, then hide inside during the hot parts of the day. Late in the evenings we cruise the backroads & watch the colors in the sunsets & clouds with the windows down, blowing our hair.
