    My plans are to stay inside as much as possible. The heat, humidity and I don't get along very well.

    It's hot in NC. Has been for the last 2 weeks. Will be untill the end of Sept. I'll be driving all summer. Both DD's have jobs and don't drive yet. We're working on that one. I'm working on my stash reduction this summer. Just making tops to quilt when the weather cools off. So far I've finished 2 tops, layed out the third, and am peicing a fourth.I've already picked out a pattern to use up the scraps from the 4th. I have several others in the planning stages in my mind. Provided I don't loose my mind in the heat. Already had record breaking heat.

    Summer plans are to stay cool, take dd to swim lessons 2x a week, sew and I'm going to go to a quilting retreat at Threads of Time in Danville Illinois in July. Any one want to join me???? It's only $35 a night and you bring your own food/drink, sewing projects, machine and supplies. Threads and Beds(where I'll be sleeping and sewing) is just right through the door from Threads of Time fabric store where I'll be shopping. It's air conditioned, roomy, well lit and lots of fun. Anyone turning green yet?????? LOL
    It's an open retreat, anyone can sign up until all the rooms are full.

    It is raining here in central Indiana. The thunder and lightning woke me up a little after 5 when I had to go let the dog in...he is terrified of thunder. Now, at 10am it is very, very dark outside and pouring. In fact, our county and several others are in a flood warning. It has been a very wet month here.

    My plans for the summer...I have been trying to finish up some quilting projects that are stacked up. I really need to get them out of the way before I begin much else. I have a couple little 4Hers that I am helping with their projects (which are very simple but the teacher in me wants them to be sure they are learning to do things the correct way). I also will do some planning and organizing in my Kdg classroom after the cleaning crew is finished in our bld. I am so afraid of not getting my asst this fall (due to declining numbers and budget cuts, it is a very real possiblity), that I want everything as ready to go and manageable as possible.

    Of course, if I don't quit sleeping till 9 every morning and then playing on my computer till noon, I will not get anything done this summer. :(

    It is very hot here. Our plans are a trip to Haiti and one to IN - well, that is for Sept, but we're looking forward to it... otherwise lots of sewing/quilting/swimming/etc.

    My plans are to keep making ice for my sister's pool. It's like jumping into a bathtub.
