I got a new waffle maker. It’s a GE. It makes four waffles at a time. Got a canner. For making salsa and pickles.
What illnesses or health concerns did I have?
Cold/allergy stuff at the first of the month. Lots of sinus issues and ears stopping up.
What were my accomplishments this month?
I started scrapping again and finished several layouts.
What were my disappointments this month?
The LOST finale. ‘Nuff said. Also that Party Boy’s truck was broken into. Again. They didn’t take anything because there was nothing to take. We keep it pretty well cleaned out. I just hate that our neighborhood feels like such a frequent target.
Anything else noteworthy to include?
The first half of the month was just beautiful, weather-wise. Now? Hot, hot, hot. Miserable hot. What a difference a month makes!
