As in other parts of the country, it has been HOT in Colorado lately. Our small house doesn't have air conditioning, and honestly, most of the time we don't need it. Colorado cools down at night, so our house usually does, too. 106 (and temps over 100 for multiple days in a row) is hard to combat. Except like this:

I Like Thursday #294
Sitting with the fan blowing right on you!
I just finished the above book yesterday. I saw it on multiple blogs, so got it from the library. It's a good story, a writer and genre I usually like. My only complaint might be that it's kind of long - the story probably could have been told in 300 pages instead of 500!
Of course, I'm always looking for simple meal ideas that don't require too much cooking. I had a leftover boneless pork chop from the grill that we sliced up really thin and made a taco/fajita type meal out of. A few sautéed peppers and onions are good on that. And my favorite small spatula works really well for that job! (Thanks, LeeAnna, for the topic idea!)
This was a Dollar Tree find!
The bottom is great for scraping out smaller spaces
like a soup can.
The green beans don't seem to mind the heat. They're growing! I even picked a few last night.
We found this cute little spinner last week, and I thought this would be a fun place to put it. The red and white polka dot petals spin around the center when the breeze is blowing.
You can see how dry the poor grass is. We're just hot and dry here!
Fortunately, my sewing room is in the nice cool basement, and I've been playing my little flower garden of hexies. This is my plan - I really had to eke out every last bit of the green floral to get enough for the outer border, but I think it will work.
Hope you're staying cool this week!
