Beat The Heat…Again

It’s Still Summer…And It’s Still Hot

I thought I’d read back through my blog archives from last summer. To make a long story short…nothing much has changed. It’s still summer a year later…. and it’s still hot. I still can’t wait for Fall to arrive. I look so much cuter when I’m not sweating. Just sayin’.

 

Because laughter always makes things better……I hope you enjoy the “oldies but goodies” that I’ve picked out of my file:)

Beat The Heat

It is a hot, humid, sticky, stifling Monday morning in west central Ohio. I know there are a lot of people dealing with temperatures much hotter than the 90′s, but it’s still hot, regardless. I could gripe about the heat (and I probably will, because I am not above whining), but I will begin today’s blog with being thankful that we have a working air conditioner in the house.

 

The last severe heat wave we had, the air conditioner was not working. We couldn’t catch a breeze and I was quickly melting in a pool of sweat. It was a gross and disgusting scene. Just trust me on that. Moist skin, hair plastered to my head, and a sweat mustache are not my most beautiful look. Needless to say, I was happy to see the temps eventually drop. Now, this week, I am looking at 95 degree temps again.

 

Have I mentioned that I enjoy the laid back spirit of summer? But, not so laid back that I drop over dead on the lawn from heat stroke. Just sayin’. Don’t waste your time telling me I am a heat wimp…because I won’t even fight you on that point. I will just agree with you and then request that you go and get me some more ice cubes for my tea…..or fan me……or spray me with the water hose. That’s just how I roll.

 

The dog days of summer are very real at my house. The outside dogs just lay around in the shade, and pant a lot. I make sure their water bowls are always full. I tell them to drink up. I’m seriously considering buying them a kiddy pool. They can lay around in it and I can bring them their water bowls with little umbrellas in them.

 

I’m already thinking ahead. Three months from now will be October 18th. Aaahhh….cool days and crisp nights. My perfect season…..Autumn, I miss you. Please hurry. Before I melt.

 

Well, it’s off to find something to wear today. Something cool…..but, still decent. And legal.

  1. Speaking of laughter and whining. What’s the difference between a flight attendant and a 747? The 747 stops whining when it lands.

  2. Ya gotta love the fall. Except down here the fall’s not much different from the summer. Same heat. Same humidity lots of the time. We do get a break during our one week winter season. Although many Christmases I’ve worn short sleeves and shorts. I still miss Iowa and great falls, chilly weather and Friday night high school football games. The air is different, the colors are different (pine trees don’t look pretty in winter), the mood is different, the animals are different. Oooooh, I still miss Iowa.
