On its way

Well, it will be in the triple digits here for months. With that being said, something special is on the way.

CHRISTMAS! 6 months from today. WHOO HOO!!

Any excuse to post one of my favorite pics from a prior life in Luzern.

Today I have been working on some embroidered Christmas stockings so I thought I would share.

European linen and burlap.

Sorry for the news flash but 6 will be here before we know it.
Ho Ho HO.

Please enjoy the rest of June.

Big hugs

You know it's hot...the saga continues AND a very happy birthday to a first crush!

Back in 2008, 2009. and 2010, I did a post about YOU KNOW IT'S HOT WHEN.... Obviously, it was too hot for me to do this post in 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014. But, I'M BACK AND IT IS STLL HOT!

SO, you know it is hot when..

The cactus is still dead.

The hot water heater is STILL in vacation mode but you have just scalded yourself with water from the cold water tap.

Your clothes are dry coming out of the washer.

You don't need to dry off getting out of the shower.

It is still 100 degrees at midnight.

The local news team is thinking about trying to bake a pizza on the sidewalk.

You truly question your sanity for purchasing a black car with black interior.

When you go out to water plants, the water evaporates before hitting the planter.

Yep, it is hot. I have lived here since 1988 and I am always shocked when summer comes around.
Today it is supposed to hit 115 or higher. I am very thankful that I can escape the heat in air conditioning. My heart goes out to those who are homeless and have no where to go to escape the killer heat.

We have a wildfire that started yesterday and is growing by leaps and bounds. With all the flooding and just horrible weather around the country, I wish I could send you some sunshine and heat.

On a lighter note, today my first crush turns 73.
Can you guess?

Sir Paul! No last name needed.

As a kid, I loved the fact that we shared the same birthday month. It kind of gave me hope that we would meet and he would propose. Yep..

Why is he not aging? Well, maybe a tiny bit but my first crush still has it going on.

So, Happy Birthday Sir Paul.
Rock On!

Big hugs,

The Good life

Can you look at these photo's and tell what they have in common

Robert Redford- gorgeous actor- photo by studio

Some favorite books-photo by Barb-avid reader

With this photo?

This is 6 Gateway Dr in Great Neck, New York and it can be yours for a cool
$3,888,888. I am a huge fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald (Zelda too)!
He and Zelda lived here from 1922-1924. He wrote 3 chapters of The Great Gatsby in this house.
Of course the first photo is Robert as Jay Gatsby. I know you know that!!

Between the two of them, they had so much talent and such tortured lives.
They lived life large and not in a great way.

The house was built in 1918 and of course has been remodeled many times.

Is this not gorgeous?

Spectacular kitchen. I would have loved to see the original one.

The stories those walls and floors could tell!

 Love the cow!

images from Zillow

What does 3,888,888 buy you? 7 bedrooms. 6.5 bathrooms  and so much history.
A modest 5,174 sq ft. Can you even imagine? 

I am on a hunt to find some original photo's. If there is a will, there is a way.

If you are a reader, try to pick up the books in the 2nd pic. They are worth your time.

Whoo hoo.... first post for June. On a roll.

Big hugs
