Cloudy and Cool

After 4 days of 95 degree temps and blazing hot sun, we have cloudy and cool weather today. What a blessing! I love the sun but only if the temperature stays around 75 degrees. It's supposed to be like this until Friday and that's just fine with me.

I had a very uneventful 4th of July. Steph was gone with friends and I was home studying. There were so many fireworks going off in our neighborhood it sounded like a war zone! I finally gave up about 9:30 and went outside to watch the festivities. I've decided that next year I'm going home to IL for the 4th. My SIL always has a party for the 4th when I'm there and then we'll go watch fireworks. We used to always plan our yearly IL trip so it was over the 4th. I'm not sitting home by myself one more year!

I don't know how much I'll be on here this week as I have lots and lots of homework. I'm really enjoying both of my classes and have great professors. They're very easy going and make the learning fun. I was surprised how much terminology that I remembered in just once week!

Soap and lotion making have also gone by the wayside. I'm not even going to think about it until classes are over in August. Then I'll be ready to get back into it full swing with Fall scents and getting ready for the bazaar season. That really excites me!

Don't you love the pearls on my new blog background?? They are so me - reminds me of my favorite pearl necklace.

I hope you had a wonderful 4th and I pray you'll have a blessed week!

Glad to hear someone has cooler weather - not here :(
Sounds like school is going well for you! I'd like to do that in the fall if the house sells and we move by then...
