Hot Hot Hot

You may have noticed a lack of posting or creativity by me lately. I blame it on the sun. And the heat. And the lack of rain. It’s just too darn hot to do anything in Dallas and has been that way for weeks upon weeks. Our weather disaster in Texas has been slow and steady, not a shock and awe like Irene was recently. We’re in the middle of non-stop pummeling heat. Everything is brown and dying or on fire. It is just so sad.

All I do anymore is go to work, come home, eat, clean, and watch tv. Mostly HGTV. That’s my junk food television, I can’t get enough of it. I love design shows and house hunting and fixer ups and everything they broadcast. But I don’t think I have ever revealed my addiction before. I thought only my husband and the critters knew of my problem. I was wrong. HGTV knows. How else do you explain this email I got today?

I don’t think I’ll be going to audition for this show, I much more enjoy being the audience and judging their designs and personalities rather than being the one being judged. But if any of you dear readers go for it, do let us know.
