I was doing some screaming yesterday and I'll probably be doing it again today! Yesterday this deplorable heat decided we haven't had it quite hot enough so it spike to 107! The forecast is for more of the same today through the weekend. So scream number one is just because it's so dang hot! This kind of heat makes me cranky and I think it makes customers with no air conditioning cranky too!
Scream number two came when the air conditioning in my office quit working! And you know how the cobbler's children have no shoes? Well, my boss was busy getting paying customer's air conditioning fixed so my air had to wait. He did promise to work on it this evening though!
Scream number three came when I left work and discovered I had a flat tire! This was shortly followed by scream number four when I discovered that my husband had left the house and not bothered to take his cell phone!
So what would soothe the frazzled nerves of one who has experienced a day like this?
Ice Cream! Ice Cream can turn me from the monster I was to a happy and contented person again! This Ice Cream Monster is from Squigglefly and is drawn by Denise Clemmensen. She has more monsters too, and they are all so cute with their own personalities.
I colored this with copic markers. It's pretty simple to see what I did to make the card. The orange dots are rain dots and the words are computer generated. Inside finishes off the childhood rhyme "Let's all scream for ice cream!"
Luckily there was a co-worker leaving work at the same time as me and he very graciously took off my flat and put on a spare for me. The spare was kind of iffy, so I drove home keeping my eyes peeled for a tire place that was open. I found one and he was able to plug my tire and replace it for me! All's well that ends well, and ice cream never hurts!
