Good morning. Here in New England it is hot, hot, hot! I realize other parts of the country are hotter than we are, but to us, this is very hot. Temps in the 90's every day. The only saving factor has been the coolness of the last couple of nights.
We had storm warnings a couple evenings ago. Rain, damaging winds and hail were forecast as being headed our way, along with thunder and lightning. Well, the thunder and lightning showed up for a while, along with about 57 extremely misty teeny rain drops. Make that 59. A couple of the drops hit the car and split in two. Then the storm moved further south.
As for sleep, well I've been taking advantage of little naps whenever they happen. Early yesterday morning, while it was still cool enough to walk and breathe comfortably, Joe and I went to Walmart to do our grocery shopping. I guess a lot of other folks had the same idea because there were a lot of shoppers there.
In the afternoon, I managed to do a couple loads of laundry, towels and such. But that was the extent of my ambition for the day. I did cook supper for Pogo. For myself, I nuked a frozen dinner. I don't have much of an appetite in this heat.
I dug into my archives for a couple photos that might help cool us off for a little bit. These photos were taken four years ago in December. What's really amazing is that in December of 2012, there were more roses blooming on the pink rose tree than we've had all of this year. Go figure.
Pogo and I are staying ahead of the heat as best we can. Every now and then I put the A/C on for a while to cool the room down, and we have a couple fans moving the air around. I would love to keep the door open with the window pane up all through the night when it is really cool, but that is not really feasible. (for safety reasons)
At four thirty this morning, I got up and made breakfast for Pogo and me while it was nice and cool. In a little while, I'll take a look to see what's for lunch. Maybe I'll have a bowl of cereal. Mmmm, that sounds cool and yummy. I have ice cream and milk. Maybe I'll make a milkshake. Oooooh, I'm making my mouth water! I think I should stop typing right now before I gain a few more pounds. haha. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
