Happy August!

I think I say this every month, but here we are at the start of another one! They seem to be going by so quickly lately and this week of crazy heat sure didn't help!

This is what happened to one of my poor candles because of the heat!!

The last week has been absolutely nuts! On Wednesday, our house was a balmy 81 degrees at 7am! The temp was supposed to be about 35C (95F), but we had this freak humidity thing going on, so they're saying it felt like about 43C (110F). This is soooooo not our normal weather and we had days of this! Not many people here have air conditioning at home and we sure don't. Our overnight temp of 21C (70F) is common for daytime this time of year. Wednesday broke all time heat records and then we broke the Wednesday record the following day! It has thankfully "cooled" down a little, but not enough for my liking!

Needless to say, we did do a whole lot this past week other than try and stay cool. We had thankfully bought the kids a pool to play in a few weeks ago and that was probably what saved us since we all spent time in there! The kids were in and out all day though I was trying to even keep them inside for a while in the afternoon when it was the hottest.

We did get the new dishwasher we ordered and George put it in! It's sooooo nice to have a dishwasher again and it cleans so well, actually dries everything and I can barely hear it when it runs! Gotta like that! We had a little scare again this past week though when the fridge started acting up again too, but we "fixed" it by cleaning out the build-up of ice again that was blocking the movement of air and preventing it from cooling properly. All seems well again there now.

I did get a layout done as well and this was for a layout tag (like playing "Telephone" with layouts so you only get to see the one done before you) at Scrapdango, so you can go and check them all out if you want!

*You'll have to excuse the piece of fluff that was on Nathan's "face" when I took the picture of the layout!

Well, think that's about it for today! Going to go see what else I can get done while it's quiet around here with the boys all taking my old dishwasher to the dump!


**OK, I am going to try the daily blogging again this month and we'll see what happens, so wish me luck!
