I am soooo close to finishing! Just need to close up the toe. I can't believe that I am almost done.

Melting (still)… if yesterday reached 100 degrees then it would have been 39 days in a row of this icky heat. I have no idea if it actually did reach 100 degrees, but I think maybe it did.
Watching… Fringe. We watched the first season when it first aired but never got any further than that. I love Netflix for letting me watch shows that I didn't have time for when they first aired. It has been so hot that we haven't wanted to do anything else but just sit and watch T.V. And now that monsoon season is here, the humidity is killing us. We don't have A/C, only a swamp cooler and that doesn't really work when the air is humid. Last night the outside temperature at 11:00 pm was 91 degrees, inside it was a muggy 81 degrees. All this heavy air really makes it hard to breathe.
Listening… more like obsessing over Daft Punk's latest album (Random Access Memories). Well, actually only over 3 songs. My favorite is Instant Crush. I also love Lose Yourself to Dance and Get Lucky (which I predict will be The song of the summer). I have to carefully watch my Last.fm stats though to make sure I don't over do it. I don't want to appear too crazy. How many times can you listen to a song on repeat before people start looking at you funny?
Knitting… well, kind of. This past weekend I did pull out my sock to work on. I only have the toe left to knit on the second sock but I just keep putting it off. I don't know why. I worked on it the other night but only did a couple of rows. That's me though, I stop knitting on a project just long enough for me to forget how to knit.
Carpooling… my car has been dead for weeks now so the husband has had to drive me to work. I haven't minded since his truck has A/C (which is awesome by the way) and my car does not. The car got fixed today. It needed a new starter. Honda parts are expensive. I don't know yet how I feel about the car being fixed. I am going to miss riding in comfort. It's too hot to drive without A/C. On the plus side, I can leave the house whenever I want now.
Crafting... I have index cards to share but honestly I have not created any new ones lately. With this humidity nothing dries. I had so many unfinished cards from last year's challenge. They took weeks to dry and those were just the ones that had been sprinkled with water. If I do this project again next year I will probably only participate during June, the only non-humid month.
