Celebrate with me... HS-MS is BACK!!


The first word of the new HS-MS season is "SUMMER" ohhh boy, do *I* know summer. See this? This is what summer is like here in the stinkin' desert. My friend, Amanda took this photo recently and as you'll notice, the thermometer is broken. Yes, my friends, it was that hot. And to make matters worse, as if they possibly could be, the thermometer was only outside for a few minutes before it went KA-BLOOEY!!!! This little gadget was supposed to go up to 120 F and it just couldn't take it anymore. I feel its pain.
Now this next photo is how I'd like to think of summer. On the beach, snuggled into the sand, cool ocean breeze in my hair as I doze off to the rhythmic sounds of the waves crashing on the shore and some sort of fruity drink at my side. That's summer in the perfect world (in this case it was Costa Rica) My reality would be sand flies biting me every 3.4 seconds, gale force winds whipping my clothes off, sea gulls relieving themselves on my head, a sunburn in a shade of red that no scrapbook paper could ever match, ants crawling all over the sugary sweet fruit drink along with a hord of killer bees, and chaffing like no other from sand in the o' swimsuit. Well, there went that lovely visual.

Anyway, I'm looking into a new job so wish me luck. I'll know more tomorrow and I'm hoping it turns out to be something I want. I'm excited and scared at the same time. It will be something new for me and I believe I'm totally ready for a change. It's 1:30 YIKES...best be hittin' the sack. Can't wait to see what ya'll have on your photo blogs.

Super shots...both of them. I can't remember how many thermometers we had to replace when I lived in AZ. I think we eventually quit buying them. Love your Costa Rica shot too - beautiful.
