What I’ve Been Doing on my Summer Vacation

TweetBliss. Bliss. Bliss. We’ve been taking a “home” vacation the last week and a half. (Well, I have. BH has been working.)

TweetAck. It is officially hot here. I don’t do hot. Nor do I do humidity. I am the Ice Queen, fond of blizzards and lake effect snow. Last night was horrific. The air was so sticky that I kept waking up convinced that critters were crawling on me. Then a bat flew into the screen […]
