I was feeling a little grumpy yesterday. Looking out the window it looked like a beautiful, sunny day - however in reality it was 97 degrees with what felt like 100% humidity. Uncomfortable. I was finally able to take a walk as evening approached, but it was not pleasant.

I tried to break from my grumpy mood with reading, Sex and the City on Netflix, leftover potato salad.

At around 9:00 pm I let out a squeal of delight, and it's all tha
nks to Corinne at "Trains, Tutus, and Tea Time. I saw my name on her post identifying me as a recipient of the Cherry on Top Award! Of course I was (and still am) excited - it's so fun to pass on awards, and this one is so darn cute!
