Happy Independence Day And More

It is 7:30 on a Saturday morning and I'm awake. I've been up since 6:00 and no, there is no fever as far as I can tell. It's just one of those mornings. The heat here has been so bad, it's just difficult to cool off. While we were shopping yesterday, our air conditioner froze up again. We came home to a house that was 92°. Cooler than 106°, yes, but it was still hot. So I Google "why does my AC keep freezing" and found Energy Boomer. Lo and behold, our fan speed was set to med-low, T-man fixes that, and the house cooled off right away. It is so nice to be married to a handy DIY guy. Today, he's checking the drain. Hopefully our freeze-up situation is fixed.

I got the rest of my birthday present from T-man yesterday. Now I can make circles. And . . .

because he said I needed one. It should make punching holes easier. Also, I've got the perfect first project:

Barbe posted this a few weeks ago and I thought it was cute in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way. I can't afford to use my cards so I should do SOMETHING with them, right? I'm glad, though, that I had "custom" designs and that my cards are a little more colorful. If nothing else, I'll have fun making the bracelet.

Have fun, stay safe, be cool! I'll be back AFTER my birthday.

I know!! Hopefully I won't be punching anyone's ticket or punching any lights out.

Would you like some punch??
Stay cool!

Oooh..what great tools. And a great project in mind. I looked at your b-day present blog post and saw the dapping block. I have one too but haven't used it yet! Have you used yours? It's like my tumbler when I first got it...I let it sit forever until I figured it out and now I can't live without it.

Thanks, Cindy! Nope, I haven't used it yet. I was waiting for the punch set (after he gave me the block, I knew I was also getting the punch). I'm hoping it's something I'll be able to play with while I recuperate from the surgery I MAY have.

Have a great weekend!!
