Seriously freaky

And I mean SERIOUSLY !   I went to get a hanky out of the top drawer of my tallboy in the bedroom yesterday and I pulled out two $50 notes that had been tucked in there!  Am I having black outs and hiding money that I can't remember.  Honestly.  I'm starting to worry.   Now I'm another $100 up on unexpected money.

I'm really looking forward to what I'll find tomorrow now! ha.

Temperature has hit 35 C and it feels a lot more.  I'm flagging fast, as are the menagerie.  I took them out in the shade earlier and we played with the hose, spraying water on them in an effort to cool them down.  Now Lucky looks like a lion, he needs a good clipping and around his shoulder area is sitting up like a mane.  My little lion boy, he's so funny.

Last night we headed down to Collendina to watch my brother-in-law play in his band Skebang, plus it was my sister-in-law's birthday too.  A really fun night.  Last time I went to the Collendina would easily have been near on 20 years ago, watching James Reyne pump it out.   Although it wasn't a dancing type night, Mike decided to get Ann-Marie up on the dance floor, so fun.   Then he got me up with him dancing and started dancing like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction.  Well what's a girl to do and I matched him back.  We looked outrageous I'm sure.  Much to the mirth of my brother-in-law up on stage playing the saxophone.

So last night, combined with a late night home, combined with a lazy sleep in this morning, combined with this heat that makes you not want to lift a finger, has made for a very unproductive day.

Onto the scrapping front ...

I think scrapbooking is a great way to tell our story because we scrapbookers do become the story tellers of our family.  I think also that scrapbooking is a great outlet for therapy, they call it scrap therapy.  Sometimes, even if we don't decide to print the page or include it in our family history, it's just enough to make a page and know it's made.  Much like writing the letter you never send.  This is one of those such pages explaining about the turmoil I felt on Christmas Day.

So right now I plan on putting the kettle on and making a very hot cup of tea.  I love drinking hot sweet tea on a hot day, I find it's the only thing that will quench my thirst.

OK, maybe this is a sign that you need to clean out ALL of your drawers?!! You never know WHAT you might find!
