This disorder is common in winter when people don't get enough sunlight and suffer depression symptoms. I think I have a hot weather version.
When the temperature gets up to 40 degrees I don't cope well, I become a prisoner in my home, not wanting to venture out and becoming increasingly grumpy at not being able to do what I want to do because its 'too hot'. I look to each forecast for a cool change and glimmers of hope that it wont be as bad as I imagine. This Summer has been mild so far and I have enjoyed the weather but I always dread February and any extremely hot days. If the forecast is for 38 and above I close all the blinds and bunker down trying to keep cool.
I normally print off the photos I want to scrap on our Canon printer but since Chris tried another brand of inks I haven't been as happy with the quality of said prints. We will have to go back to genuine inks and put up with the cost to get the quality. In the mean time I am trying Harvey Norman's on-line printing service while their 4x6" prints are just 9 cents each. Yes thats right only 9 cents! I scoured through the hard drive yesterday while I was imprisoned in our dark, coolish home, and picked out some I want to scrap. Hopefully the quality is good but for just $3 it is a good test. I will have scrapping fodder for some time to come.
I made some Afghan biscuits today in a cooler moment. We don't normally eat Cornflakes in our house and I had to buy some especially to make the Florentines last week, so have been looking for other recipes to use them up.
When I was a child our mother made a tuna casserole that had a cornflake topping. Cooking for my new husband I made it exactly the same but he thought this was very strange and refused to eat it again, I have modified the dish and now put a grated cheese and bread crumb topping instead.
|You would think I had put Cocoa Pops on top! |
Maybe my little Kenwood sensed I was eyeing off this little beauty
