I am a warm weather person - let me be clear on that. However, I have decided that I am not a HOT weather person! Here it is, mid-July, and I can't remember the last day the temperature didn't go above 100 degrees here. Maybe it was some time back in May......
Perhaps it is just because I hit the ripe old age of 50. Perhaps my body is changing with age. But, the heat is absolutely draining me this year! By the time I go out on the back patio with my cup of coffee and watch the sunrise with the pups, it is in the mid-80's. Noon brings us into the upper-90's. And by the 5:00 rush towards home, we are sweltering well above 100. It seems a reading of 107 or 108 isn't even raising eyebrows anymore. I suppose we are just getting accustomed to this scorching dry heat.
I saw a funny post on Facebook this evening. It was a photo of a portable marquee that read -
"Satan phoned. He wants his weather back!"
I say, let him have it!!!!
I am ready for some cooler temps. I am tired of living in a state of "constant dampness". Because I do not perspire - I sweat!!! Throw in a hot flash or two and I am a sopping mess.
So, now as I prepare to retire for the evening and see that it has finally dropped to 90 degrees outside (note, it is after 11:00 pm!), I am going to attempt to employ some imagery techniques in an attempt to "chill" myself down.
I'll let you know how that turns out......
Until next time -
