Things I am not understanding

I went to wash my hands at a 'spa' haircut type place and there was a pile of rocks in the sink. I asked if they were cleaning stones for hot stone massages but no, they were meant to be there. Why the heck do you put rocks in a sink--it's going to collect dirt, soap and germs. And then get moldy and smelly. I just don't see the point of rocks in a sink.

All everyone seems to talk about right now is how hot it is. Like every August. Ummm, we're in the South, it's August-----I'm thinking if it suddenly started to snow, THAT would be news. Complaining about the heat in Texas in August is like going to Alaska for Christmas and complaining about the icicles hanging off your car. It's HOT. OK. Can we please discuss something other than weather?!

I saw Thanksgiving and yes, Christmas decor at the decorating store last week. I love Christmas quite possibly more than anyone in the entire world and this bothered me. Having 'back to school' supplies right next to Santa seems just unnatural.

But I will admit I listened to a little bit of Nat King Cole's 'Christmas Song' (hey, it was HOT and it made me feel a little cooler ;) ).

I was at Hobby Lobby today and saw tons of holiday garland with lights, as well as Christmas trees and boxed ornaments. Seriously? How far are we from just having a "Christmas" section in the store for year-round purchases?

You really made me laugh! I love the thing about the weather. I totally agree! You always give me a giggle and I love that about you.

Weather seems to always be a topic of conversation... up North we have been pretty lucky and having a cooler summer... it seems to be a sort of "ice-breaker" for conversation... (I should knock on wood because we still have the rest of Aug and Sept to go through). I haven't seen Christmas stuff yet just Halloween, which I thought was unusual...
