Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Sick and hot
Sick of being hot
Sick from being hot
Hot enough to make me sick
This week I've been taking another vacation back to the land of nausea. The land where all the streets are made of saltines. The houses are dry toast with the occasional biscuit bungalow here and there. All the faucets run with ginger ale. And running right through the center of town is the river of nausea itself. I don't think I need to explain what the river is made of. If this heat doesn't go away soon I'm afraid that my visit to nausea land might last quite a while.
Needless to say this has put a damper on my goal of getting yarns spun up and work in general. While I haven't been able to work much, I've been able to stay home and watch this little lady:
and she's been pretty good even though I make her wear these:
But she only has to wear them part of the time. It keeps her from licking herself and she won't usually pull them off to do so. This time the stitches are holding and while it's not healing beautifully, I think we have a better chance. She does look pitiful with those shorts though.
And because our other dog hasn't made an appearance here in a while and I'm feeling guilty of the news being all Kayla all the time... I present Queen "superbad" Min:
There she is sacked out on the kitchen floor next to her beloved fridge. She's handling the heat only slightly better than I am. She's gained quite a bit of weight lately. I think she's having a sympathy pregnancy. Poor gal.
What have I done this week? Watched grass grow, watched the paint dry, contemplated the deeper meaning of life? Yes, all of that. Or you could just say I have been perfecting my technique of staring into space. I've become a master at moving as little as possible.
Here's hoping for SNOW.
