It was another extremely HOT, HOT day here in Sac Town--in fact, the TV news reported tonight that our little part of town got up to 112 degrees. I think there are parts of me that will stay damp now until October, and then I'll probably discover I'm growing fungus or mold or something. I'm very grateful for the air conditioning, but even the air conditioning couldn't keep up with the heat, and this will be the second night in a row that we'll sleep with the windows closed and the air conditioning on--I really hate it when it gets like this!
I DID, in fact, make it to the grocery store and home again this morning before the temperatures got past 90 degrees, so that's one chore that's done for now. The rest of the day, I stayed indoors and, for the most part, "played" in the Sweat Shop.
Remember I mentioned that I was making a 4th of July crafty thing? Here it is:
A little patriotic fabric star "floral" bouquet.
Then I spent the rest of the day working on this month's Jo's Little Women Club project--I added an extra strip of stars to make it a little wider than the pattern.
It's quilted, but it still needs a binding.
Hubby was deeply saddened today when the USA men's soccer team lost to Brazil in the final game of the Confederations Cup, although USA did pretty well, losing by only one goal with a score of 3 to 2.
In other news, Pabst, a boxer mix owned by a local man, won the World's Ugliest Dog contest.
A face, I think, that only a mother could love.
Finally, there's the subject of my post title. Did you think I was going to talk about Michael? Farrah? Ed? Nope! If you haven't already heard, TV pitchman Billy Mays died.
This seems to have been the week for odd deaths, and Billy's is no exception. This morning, his wife found him unresponsive and a fire rescue crew pronounced him dead. It's unknown right now what caused his death, but he had been on a plane on Saturday that had a rough landing when a tire or tires blew out, and he was struck on the head. He claimed he was alright, but then he wasn't feeling well later in the evening.
You know what this means? Vince, the Sham WOW guy, will probably be getting a lot more work. And those hot temperatures we're having? Maybe this IS aitch-E-double L!
