I guess I haven't been a faithful blogger lately!
But don't leave me!
The past few days in our area, it's been in the 90's. We don't have central air in our home. We cool our home the old fashioned way: filtered box fans in our bedroom windows. This environment is not conducive, in my opinion, to spending two hours on the computer surfing my favorite blogs. Oh, I've been checking in with most of you, but it's so hot in our house that I don't want to be in here!
But it's just as hot outside!
I know. I'm complaining about the very weather I prayed for just last month! Call me flighty.......but did I mention it is H O T here?
Since we live by the lake in our town, we usually get a nice steady breeze, starting in the afternoon, so we open the front door and the back sliding glass doors and it cools of very nicely after a really hot, stuffy day.
We haven't been getting a breeze. Last night, it was so hot that we slept with our back sliding glass door open!
The slider is in our room. There are two very good watch dogs pretending they are sleeping right on that back step. Not to mention my husband keeps a companion right beside him, and said companion is made of metal and I trust it with my life.
I know I have no right to whine. I mean, after all, isn't it waaaaaay hotter in, like, Arkansas, where Melissa lives? How about Alabama, where Gayle of the Westie Crew lives?
Call me a baby.
One thing I can say for NW weather is that it isn't humid here at all. We live just an hour or so away from the Pacific coast, and spent all day Friday at Ecola State Park and Indian Beach for my birthday.
So I'm 35 now and HOT.
I spent the day with my mom yesterday, going to Costco up north and stuff like that, and I drove my husband's car so he could have the van.
His tranny slips.....
And his air conditioner doesn't work.
Did I mention I'm hot??
