If I wait eight more minutes, I can say Good afternoon! Well, I'll say it anyway. Today is another scorcher here in New England. Well, at least in my little part. It's making it very difficult for me to breathe. So far though, I'm hanging in there.
I haven't done much of anything since early yesterday morning.. Just moving takes my breath away. So I'm watching a lot of TV. Isn't it sort of sad how we wait all through the long cold winter for the warm weather to get here, and then when it gets here it's too warm to enjoy?
Ah well, as long as I can breathe, I still have lots of things to keep me busy. Needless to say, the Spring and Fall are my favorite times of the year. Wouldn't it be nice if all our beautiful flowers and trees could bloom in the winter? Hmmm, just thinking out loud.
A lot of folks are really hurting in this wicked heat. Don't forget to check in with your elders and your sickly or elderly neighbors to make sure they are okay. I borrowed this chart from the web because I thought it might be helpful.
Don't forget to bring your pets indoors. This heat is brutal on them too. Don't think that a doghouse is a good protection from the heat. Read this.
Don't forget your chickens either! I borrowed this interesting item from the web to share here. I think it's a great idea!
Last evening, Deanne sent me these photos of my great grandbabies having fun and keeping cool in her pool. The first photo is Aurora, and the next photo is her brother Xander.
A few days ago, I ordered a Diamond Dazzle Stick (otherwise known as a Sparkle Pen). It's used to clean the stones in your rings. Not the opals and pearls of course. It came yesterday morning, and I used it to clean the ring I've been wearing. Wowsie! My ring really sparkles now! It came as a package of three, and the cost is quite tiny. I'm keeping one stick and giving the others to my girls.
Now I'm going to do a bit of blog reading. First I'll grab me a fresh bottle of cold water. So, till tomorrow, Y'all please stay cool, and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
