Summer is Here

July 5, 2008

Well we are doing the summer thang- staying up late, sleeping in late, not doing much in between.  We leave next week for our annual family vacation up north, so that will be a nice change of pace.

The Mid-Summer’s Eve party was a raging success.  I was afraid people weren’t going to show, but then the perfect number did and we had a grand time.  We had a bonfire but thankfully no one tried to jump it.  The sangria was gone in no-time – it was GUUUUD!! (I “Samantha’ed” it- changed the recipe. I didn’t have OJ, I added the peach schnapps in addition to the other liquors, used Reunite Lambrusco and Arbor Mist Sangria, added ginger ale (dind’t measure though).)  This will be our annual event.

But, our 4th of July stank. Stunk.  It wasn’t fun.  Dh worked, and then our fireworks got rained out.  The kids were horribly disappointed- and me too- it’s my favorite holiday.  I was pining for my 1812 Overture with howitzers…..  But there are fireworks rescheduled for tonight, so that slightly makes up for it.  No howitzers though.

Holy smokes!!  I’m all but swooning!! Sew Mama Sew is having a mid-summer Month of Sewing- it’s tutorial and idea madness!! Can you hear me hyperventilating?!?!  Too cool.

I think it’s time for me to start packing~ be back later.

Here is something fun I stumbled across!!
