GAHH! It is ridiculously hot out in CT. Considering the heat index – temperatures are in the mid to upper 90s today.. and will likely break 100* tomorrow.
Thank goodness my school is air conditioned 🙂 . And I feel terrible for those students who are sitting in un-airconditioned classroom. In heat like this, I honestly do not see how ANY learning can take place. It is just that hot.. humid.. and muggy out.
And thank goodness for sundresses 😉
However, I am also a little bit thankful that there are a few schools – in the district that do NOT have air conditioning. Why!?! Well, thanks to these schools.. there is a HALF DAY TOMORROW!!!
Well – for students, anyway, I will have to stay for the full day – but .. this will give me time to tackle the endless to-do list that I told you about yesterday! On a serious note though. the air quality is terrible.. dangerous… 😦 Not good.
Now, I normally don’t do a second post on Wednesday – but there are some lovely ladies – who have donated their time, effort, ingredients, shipping costs.. etc.. to benefit my efforts to fight breast cancer.
However, with a mere 5 hours and 15 minutes left until the close of my Baking for Boobies Bake sale… a number of these items have yet to be bid on.
So I am asking you to take another look at these delicious goodies.. and consider making a donation to fight back against breast cancer. As a result of your donation.. you will receive a goodie.. or a beautiful necklace .. hand made by Lisa @ Fishy Face Design.
So – below you will find the items that are up for grabs. Take a gander.. and think about the people in your life that have been affected by breast cancer.. or any type of cancer. Do this for them.
Do this for YOUR future.. for the future of your families.. your friends.. children (or future children). There is so much at stake.
