Monday Montage #170

What a weekend!! Record-setting high temperatures made going outside nearly unbearable (104 degrees F)! And cleaning for hours and hours at my mama's condo wore me out, made me feel accomplished and made me NOT want to do anything else!! But when you must, you must ... so I sat at my craft table and created a card for this week's Monday Montage Blog Hop!! YAY ME!

As I sat and was struggling to come up with ANY idea of what to make, I decided to troll through the catalog and see if I could find a layout for inspiration!! TA-DAAA! I found one and used it and was able to create something in not too much time. Whew!
Another to-do checked off my list!!

Stamps: Monogram Messages
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty Peacock, Just Jade, Soft Sea Foam, Forever Fern Greenery DSP
Ink: Pretty Peacock, Whisper White

Our house turned 100 this year ... so it's seen a lot of history. And it has the same AC and furnaces (there are two of them) for over 50 years! This year, the AC gave up the ghost. The weather this whole lake week has pushed to 100 and above ... like 104! UGGGggghh! We broke down on Saturday and bought a super nifty window AC unit ... which cools about half of our upstairs to WAY cooler temps that our central AC every has! It's a great temporary solution to a bigger problem we are more than likely going to have to face in the next couple of years ... replacing all heating and central air equipment. Ahhhh the JOYS of home ownership!
