It's Summer Time Summer Time Sum Sum Summer Time

EtsyBloggers carnival time agains. Summer's here. Tell us about summer in your neighborhood. Do you have permanent sunshine and palm trees or do you cherish every little ray of sunshine?? What is your favorite part of summer?? Do you barbecue?? Do you wear dresses and sandals?? Are you out of school already??

Summer in Las Vegas.

I get really really hot and complain about it alot. Then I go into the casino where they are blasting the air, get very cold, and complain about that.

I go to the pool on my day off, in the afternoon, to get out of the heat of my craft room which faces west and is sweltering by 3:00 despite the window film I paid a pretty penny on to keep out some of the heat. Of course I bring projects with me to the pool because as with all seasons, I spend every spare second I can working on my stuff.

I polish my toenails so they can be treated to daylight and fresh air.

I can't set up the gas tank for my BBQ because the place where I have to put my bbq gets no shade and I'm afraid of it bursting. I called the gas company and they said it should have some shade to be on the safe side.

Did I mention I complain about the heat alot???

As much as I seem to love most crafts, I have never felt the yen for knitting or crochet. My mother tried to teach me when I was young and I just didn't take to it. I like to think it was because she is so darned left handed that it made no sense to a righty like me. I imagine there may come a time when I want to give it a go but until then, I will just adore the works of LazyTCrochet, on Etsy and Blogger.

A Rose Is A Rose Is A Rose Is A ....Rose?

June 5 Etsybloggers Blog Carnival subject: 1) Schools Out For Summer! What are your summer plans or share your favorite end of the school year story.
2) June symbols - June's birthstone is the pearl or moonstone. June's flower is the rose. Share your favorites or stories or blog on June symbols of your own.

I choose ROSES. Wait. No. A picture paints a thousand words (I've heard) so to save space and time, here is a picture of my rose bush, which was thriving when I moved in here.

'Nuff said.
