A very HOT Day!!!!

Hottest it has ever been here....we kinda laid low today.  I didn't post yesterday, due to being glued to the TV all day for updates on the fires.  They seemed to be breaking out everywhere.  The biggest, close one is in Waldo Canyon, on the east side of the Springs.  Today one broke out in Elbert and they evacuated the town, so we really had a close eye on that one.  It seems to be doing better now. 

Been movin' slow on the Office clean is just so hot.  But all the desks, bookcases, etc are cleaned out, and moved....All the piles are gone!!!!  And the closet is almost done.  It is huge in here now.  We will be able to put the exercise bike back in here again!!!!  Then all I will need to do is put the piles in my Studio, into the closet here and under the stairs, and I am DONE!!!!  Will get pictures of it all then.  I can't believe I can see the end!!!! 

If anyone out there wants one of the Polar Bear figurines that Stampin' Up! did up many years ago...I have a bunch of them.  FREE, just need to pay for postage!!!!  E-mail or call me. 

Here's the picture of the note card that was inside my note box from the other day....
 And these next 2 cards were from our stamp day at Donna's this past month....we were using up odds and ends!!! 
The other day when it cooled down into the 60' seemed much cooler, since it has been soo...HOT.  I decided to make soup for dinner.  Here's my recipe!!!
