Good Sunday afternoon to you all. Hope everyone's weekend is going well, and the heat is not getting you down. I wish this WAS a delightful season for me, but, truth be told, I've spent the entire weekend indoors and do not plan to leave the house until tomorrow when it is time to go back to work...not that it hasn't been warm in here, but at least I didn't have to be outdoors in that stifling air. It's just a dreadful summer...so, so disappointing. I'd so many plans for this year, but it's just far too hot to do anything. Why, I even canceled my trip to the 99 cent store because it was just too hot for even that. The walk in the blazing sun, well, it's not that I needed anything, so it's just not worth being uncomfortable.
"What dreadful hot weather we have. It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance"--Jane Austin
And there is no relief in sight. Temperature is going to be in the upper 80's and 90's throughout the upcoming week. Lawns that are usually so green in the summer are just brown and straw-like as they are in the winter. There are few flowers to enjoy, and the leaves are already changing color. Even my yard at night is stuffy and hot. Those poor animals who live outdoors in our backyards...my heart goes out to them. We need a miracle.
