I don't know why but the heat [it's been 85 degrees + for 4 days] makes me want to work on Christmas decorations! I just re-listed a few ornaments in my Christmas shop and started paper mâché-ing some oversized Starlight peppermints. I also have some alien guts [photo] left over from my ultimate play dough set order so I'm going to list it separately after I design a new label for it. The garden is fine for now. I still need to start a few vegetables but for the most part it's up to Mother Nature!
