Is this ladybug tea kettle cute, or what? A yard sale find today. So Mary Englebreit-y.
We had a huge thunder/lightning/torrential rain storm this afternoon and I'm grateful Tom was home because ok, I morph into a huge sissy coward during these big storms. The electricity went out twice, but came back on soon after. The siren downtown sounded for the volunteer firefighters, too (perhaps a house was struck by lightning? It happens in our area). I have friends who enjoy these sorts of storms (are they insane?), but as I said, I do not.
Yet all's well now, except for the remaining heat and humidity. But alas, it is summer, in Buffalo after all, and complaining about the weather will do no good. We're attempting to leave the air-conditioner stored down in the basement until at least July 1st (to save $$ and set a personal record), but at this rate that's gonna be a challenge.
(Sitting here sweating as I am, I'm ever so tempted to sneak down there right now and lug the thing up here.)
But hey, I'm not complaining. シ
