so hot

It. Is. So. Hot.
Okay, so it's really not THAT hot today, expecting a high of a mere 100 degrees.  But it's been hot for days, and my energy has been sucked right out of me.  Yes, folks, surprise, surprise.  Triple digits makes me whine and complain and brings out the worst in me.  Then again, I barely have the will to do anything, so it's probably not really my worst, because that would take some effort.

You get the picture.  It's hot, and I am not a fan.

Last week I delivered Miss Penny back to her parents, and returned to a good 20 degrees more than where I left her.  It was disheartening, to say the least.  But, despite my grumbling and muttering, I'm actually getting a thing or two done.  They are little things, which probably don't add up to much, but baby steps are better than no steps, especially when I feel like I've been idle for an entire month!

I made a postcard, and put it in today's mail.  Oh, look.  Blogger and its tricks.  lovely.
 I found an estate sale listed, so I stopped by.  There was a rack of scarves for 50 cents each, so I chose this one,
 and this one.
 It's a running joke in my family, that Mother taught us to have expensive taste.  I looked for content tags (they'd been removed), but didn't see the signature lines until I'd washed them and hung them on the line.
 Not bad for a buck, eh?
Now I have a question.  They smell a bit fusty.  Does anyone have a sure-fire method of removing odor from delicate fabrics?  They're washed and airing on the line, but they might need something else.  And no, Febreze will not work.  I have chemical/odor sensitivity that induces asthma attacks, so I need something as odorless and odor-neutralizing as possible.

Thank you so much!!

I think I read to wash in baking soda and vinegar. What a good find - I love both scarves.

The scarves are a fantastic find. Your postcard is lovely. Yes, hate the heat also. I noticed I am really bitchy when it is hot. Hope it cools next week.
