Safely Home in Alaska

We got home from our trip to Houston, Texas for a family reunion. I think we got out of there just in time as rain has returned to the region. Alaska is experiencing extremely high temperatures which doesn't happen every summer. It was 86 degrees in our town yesterday...we normally feel very lucky to hit temperatures in the 70s. Air conditioning in homes is rare so we are all not used to heat like this.  

The threat of fire is very scary. None of the current fires blazing in Alaska are near my home but it is the one thing that frightens me the most since we moved to such a rural location.

Air travel means time to work on cross stitch projects. I started a new one for the trip.

Right before I left, I got a start on sewing the front and back sides of this Santa ornament together. Lots of thread color changes so haven't finished this yet.

And since it has been soooo hot...I have spent a little time in my studio since it is in the very cool basement. I love the colors in this kit!

I am very behind in the computer world...having too much fun with everything else!

I remember when we Lived in Idaho we didn't have A/C and there were only a few times in the 3 1/2 years we lived there that we would have needed it. Yes you got out of Houston just in time, more flooding I think - my husband lived in Houston for about 3 years at the end of his teen years - such a hot humid place.
