     I woke up this morning and I was cold!  Compared to last Wednesday it is freezing.  Last Wednesday at the zoo was the hottest day I can remember.  The zoo was fun though.  The ice cream cones melted…very fast.  Today is pretty chilly.  I don’t know why I am drinking a ‘creamsicle’ on ice.  They are quite delicious- Orange Juice, Cream, and a splash of Vanilla – Yummo!

     Saturday we went to The Village Theatre and saw Showboat.  I got shivers when ‘Joe’ sang Old Man River.  It was wonderful.  And for days I was singing ” …fish gonna swim, birds gonna fly…can’t help lovin’ that man of mine…” .  I love going to the plays.  Meet Me In St. Louis is coming up next season at The Village and White Christmas is going to be at The 5th Avenue this winter.  I kinda doubt I’ll get to see them but they sound fun.

     I’m trying to learn French… it’s not coming so well.  I’ve wanted to learn for so long and I’m finally setting down to it.  We’ll see how it goes.  I’m sure it’ll take quite some time.

     My sisters’ birthday was July 29th and I really wanted to bake her a birthday cake.  It was too hot to turn the ovens on and I never did it.  Now I really want to bake one…and decorate one.  I don’t want to have to eat the whole thing myself though.  Oh dear… such a dilemma.

     A votre santé!

     Life has been crazy, busy, fun.  Yesterday I started the day early.  I cleaned the house, scrubbed the floors (even though I knew they would get dirty later), washed dished, did laundry, and  nearly finished the dress I started sewing the night before.  What fun.  I, honestly, love scrubbing our kitchen floor. And of course, sewing is a favourite. After all that the real fun began…Tamales! Yes, some friends came over and we made tamales. Loads and loads of them. It was so warm in this kitchen. Not the most ideal weather to be making tamales in but….It was so much fun. I had never made them before. I officially love tamales. Homemade are just so delicious too. I ate so much last night…I couldn’t stop. And for dessert I served up some homemade frozen yogurt with fresh raspberries and blueberries on top. I’ve had fun trying out the whole frozen yogurt thing. Creamy, cold, refreshing, and sweet goodness. It is so nice on these amazingly hot days. It melts very fast though…

     There is more excitement to come.  Tonight the family is going out to dinner for My sister, Alyssas’, birthday.  Italian food.  Joy.  (I think it is a tad tragic that I love good food so much.)  Tomorrow will be an adventure.  I’ll be off to the zoo with a handful of little kiddos.  And I hear we are to break a record and most likely hit 100 degrees.  I might melt but I am very excited.  I haven’t been to the zoo in so many years. 

     Hurrah for summer fun!
