We're Melting~

We are still under the excessive heat advisory, it's gets extended daily. We are breaking all kinds of records, daily highs, highest low temps in a.m. ever recorded and dry, dry, dry. Yesterday the rolling blackouts started...hasn't hit me yet...but~and the water rationing is getting worse. I have to get a new soaker hose to put around the entire house. The ground is cracking and the highways are buckling from the excessive heat. We hit 112 degrees here yesterday and the heat is not slowing down any and the humidity is on the increase. We need rain desperately (last rained on June 20th). Today will be 34 straight days of 100+ temps and only 8 away from tying the record set in 1980 of 42 days. From all the weather forecasts I have seen, we should surpass this record. I know there are others of you out there suffering this heat as well, been a really weird year for weather records, huh? Way too many tornados and in places where they don't usually hit, the heat wave in lots and lots of places where they are not used to it too! Here, the lakes are really drying up, docks are high and dry and even finding remnants of the space shuttle from 2003, since the water is lower. Too hot for swimming in and the "parks" that are still operating are adding ice to their pools for swimming! Think I will go buy a battery operated fan and batteries to be able to keep the "girls" cool during the blackouts. :)
Too hot for outside so staying in as much as I can and been doing a little scrapping for my friend Janette. She and her mate Mike have 6 cats that I "sit" when they go out of town, they wanted some pages of them, so here are the pages I have created for her. Used a lot of older freebie kits I have and some newer ones from Raspberry Road Designs. Thanx to all you generous designers for the freebies, you make my days so much brighter!
Well, enough babbling, will get some work done and chat with all of you later. Have a marvelous weekend ahead doing just as you please and making lots of memories to share while doing it~ Luv, Mat
Janette and Mike on a trip in Amarillo.
All 6 of their cats, the large Calico is Mama to 4 of them.
This is Bear and he is a big scaredy cat for sure, loves to hide.
Petey is the only other male and he is finally warming to me.
This is MsPurple, she likes when I bring her treats.
This is Rainy, she is almost Mama's double, but so very shy.
This is twofy (for 2 Faces) and Janette's baby for sure.
This photo was taken in front of their home a few weeks back.
Well, guess blogger and or the internet are having problems too, took FOREVER to upload the images and to publish this post :(
