It’s Friday! And our terrible heat wave has broken! And I am a new woman!
I had the windows open last night and was thoroughly enjoying the breeze whilst sipping my red. Bedtime rolled around and I thought to myself, “Self. You should leave the windows open all night long so the house will be so nice and cool and fresh in the morning! You’re so full of good ideas, self.”
But then I thought, “Self. Wait just a gosh darn minute. If the windows are open, the kidnappers won’t have to break any glass to get in, the alarm system won’t realize anything is awry, and Junior will be in Mexico by morning! Leaving windows open to enjoy the cool country air is the worst idea you’ve ever had!”
Even though we live in a teeny tiny town with an almost non-existant violent crime rate, I still shut and locked them tight and then had nightmares all night about Junior getting yanked through windows.
Moms – is this level of crazy on par?
Now let’s pretend I’m not insane for a minute, and talk about things I like. Because what’s better than yammering on about the inclinations of a loon? Plus, I know you’re really, really intersted in stuff I like.
Because it’s almost September, which can almost count as fall.
The other day I was piddling around in the basement while D was working on building our dining room table. (Oh yeah, it’s in the works, and it’s going to be killer.) And I uncovered my long lost scentsy warmer thingy! The good news is that I still had a bunch of my favorite smells. The bad news is that one of them has been discontinued.

In further news, it turns out that almost every single one of the fragrances I own are from the “Scentsy Man” collection. I don’t think that would surprise anyone. Least of all, me.
Now check out this pumpkin.
That is made from a dryer vent, you guys. Don’t think I won’t be making one of my own. Don’t even think it.
