It's hot.

* It's hot.

* Really hot.

* Opressively hot.

* Dog breath hot.

* Stupid hot.

* Too hot to think of a real blog title.


* We are under an excessive heat warning until next Friday. It's brutal.

* Thank God for iced coffee and air conditioning.


* I had a photo shoot this week with a 2 year old and I was dripping in sweat by the time I was done. It was 9:00 am.

* My sunflowers are even begging for mercy from the heat.

* My zinnias keep dying. Too much heat even for them?


* My cucumbers are LOVING it. I canned 8 jars of pickles the other day and still had a mountain of cukes leftover.

* The dogs keep going in the creek to stay cool.

* I've thought about going in the creek too.

* Is it Fall yet?




p.s. I love butterflies.

My zinnias are puny this year. I do think it's the early heat. Next year try buying a bag of manure & mixing with the soil before planting your seeds, it should help.

Yeah, we've had over 28 plus days of triple digits here. Ick. I've decided to hibernate this summer...inside. With the a/c. Either that or there must be a pool where I venture out to! ;)

Is it hot? I didn't notice.... ;)

I'm loving the heat. But I'm weird like that.

Stay cool, eat lots of ice cream and drink that water. This too shall pass as my Mom used to say.

I know...this heat is unbearable! Guess what we'll be doing this week???We are moving! Yes. You heard that right. We will be loading and unloading all week as we move to a new home across town. Are we nuts or what?

p.s. Your Hawaiian pulled pork was a huge hit tonight for a quick meal after a full day of painting at the new house.
