First Monday of the Month!

Happy July!  The best of all months as far as I’m concerned.  But what do I know, right?  I’ve been told I’m a freak of nature because I love the dry, desert heat we have here.   Despite the heat, things are going well here and I’m ready for the second half of the year to start.


1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: fireworks.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration.

2. Last week’s challenges:

3. Big Buddy 2%!  How are you doing?  It’s the beginning of the month, let’s make this a good one!

If you still want to, you can sign up for July here!  Additional note: You can sign up for the Daily Count Challenge here as well.

4. Our July challenge is the ever popular Pool Party!  Right now, Kaige is taking fandom requests.  You can find the first two here and here (as I’m prepping this on Sunday, I don’t have Monday’s yet, but you can always check the tag, too).

5. Calls for NaNoCamp are out as well and you can find it here.

Happy 4th of July if you’re in the US.  If you’re English then I’m sorry.  Hahaha.  For everyone else, let’s make this an awesome week!

I am right there with you on the dry desert heat... although it's currently just a tad cool here in mid-winter NZ! We got down to single digits Celsius the other night, which is cold enough for this cold-blooded woman!

I really need to get onto the words this month, as I am soooo behind. I'm sure I could find something to jump in the pool with for July (even if swimming is the last thing I'm thinking about right now!).

And knitting. I am at peggy square # 13 for the blanket I'm making and still going strong!!!

Hot and dry, I can do. Hot and humid? I'm out. Hahaha. Oh lord, no. I can't handle that kind of cold. And I don't care if it's degrees C, F, or K.

You can do it! I know you can. :)

Awesome, good luck with your blanket! Sometimes I feel like I should take up knitting since I often feel like I'm the only one who doesn't. :D

OH ME TOO! It's unfortunate that I live in one of those places that is usually humid when it's hot. DAMMIT. I don't like this cold either, but at least today the sun is out, which makes up for it. It's so much better to be cold and sunny than cold and wet like we so often are... that humidity turns to damp so very often once winter hits, and I don't think I could stand another 4 months of rain like we had last winter.

THANKS! I am gonna try. I just had an idea for a fandom to tackle for Pool Party so *clinks glasses* here's to words!

Thanks! You should! Make a blanket (or better yet, start with a scarf or something straight and easy like that), but I'd suggest you wait till the weather's cooler where you are. Knitting's a bitch in the heat! (I need a knitting icon!)

We generally sit somewhere between 7-15% humidity. Anything more than that I don't like. How I survived living in Houston, I'll never know. YES! The sun makes all the difference, honestly. That's another thing about Vegas - there is generally very little cloud cover so, no matter the season, you get plenty of sunshine.

I know you can do this! I'm excited! Good luck. :)

ROFL at 'make something straight'. I can't make anything straight - not even with a ruler. :D

LOL! Well, practice knitting peggy squares to start if you decide to pick it up; once you get the hang of them and your knitting tension is even you'll manage something, straight or not!

Good to know! But like I told Sharpie, I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to pick up a hobby that involves a weapon (or potentially so). Hah!

HA! :D
