It’s been REALLY HOT around here these days. And HUMID. I don’t do well with that. I’m a terrible wimp in the heat and humidity and more importantly– the things it does to my HAIR. Horrendous. Baseball hats and barrettes with a million bobby pins are my friends.
So, what did I do the other day? I had to take Paul’s ’69 Buick GS for an inspection so, smart-wimp-in-the-heat that I am, decided to do my errands in it while I was out.
No air conditioning. No power windows. No power brakes. Standard transmission. E-X-T-R-E-M-E-L-Y slow traffic behind a dump truck on the way up The Hill making the trip home twice as long. Never mind the fact that Paul keeps this car so clean and well-dusted (which on any other day is a great thing) that my purse kept sliding off the seat and things were flying out of it everywhere. You can imagine my mood.
On another note, I took some pictures of my Miss Winkle on the mannequin and I just love it even more:
These really show the color well and it really is my most favorite purple in the world. Really.
And lastly, I made these:
Blueberry Crumb Bars from Smitten Kitchen. Go make them. Now. And then enjoy them this weekend!
