Beating the Heat

There is not enough coolness here to keep us happy**knocking wood that our air-conditioning is still new enough and working**.

I have some large cooked shrimp that I’m going to serve in a salad for dinner, but even as I write this, Kasia peeks behind the curtain to see if we are going out for the afternoon walk.I figure I’d type a little more of this and them try to cajole the girls into going for a brief walk.Zush doesn’t take much heat.She turns around after a while and looks at me as to say, “Can we go home, now?”As I am the type who talks to my fur-girls, I usually tell them it’s just a potty walk and we can go right back.

Far be it from me to go back on my word.

So unless we go someplace air-conditioned, the only way my fit bit zip will see 10,000 steps today is if we go walking in a larger store or something.

It’s too hot to even sweat over something like that.

Season Fight

This morning the girls and I went for our walk and to say it’s humid out down here today is an understatement. I think the three of us came back dripping in sweat, that is, if dogs can drip in sweat. Based on the tongues hanging out of their mouths,and the drool that accompanied it, I think they would concur.

It’s weird because the houses have trash cans out front where people are already raking dead leaves up and other forestry type trash, and yet the temperature seems to contradict the day. It feels more like August 20th than September 20th.

So it’s off to work for me today, the purgatory shift of 10-6. I’m sweating now, and will go in and freeze because the air conditioning is tweaked up.

Pneumonia, anyone?

Nothing like a long night

After the work day was over today, I was beat.

I decided to get to bed early and get some sleep. I have some minor procedure scheduled for tomorrow and figured I’d try to get a good night sleep.

HAH.

It is a cool night tonight,and the air conditioning is off.Yet I can’t sleep. My mind just won’t shut off and I am tossed and turned out.I think part of the tossing is that I am wishing we were down the house, so we could sleep on our real bed,after a real shower with water that won’t scald you.

Is it 2015 yet?**counting the days**

Humidity biting in the butt.

It sure as hell was muggy today.

My Mother’s cousin passed away and I went to the funeral looking like a wet dog, because it was deemed that “it was cool out” so fans were on and windows open.**sigh**

Now, down at Undisclosed. I had to cajole to bring the air on-he claims he’s freezing and it’s 75 degrees in here.

It’s going to be a long summer….**sigh**
