The bay was a little tired looking this morning. The sky kind of matched it in a blue-grey sort of way.
It was my sort of bay. It was an after the rain-drizzly day sort of bay. No one on the beach, and you actually saw whitecaps on the bay, which is something you only see when we have a storm. The breeze made it very pleasant, and my trainer, Kasia, was pushing me to walk on.
…so we did.
She was genuinely happy in putting me through our paces. The picture above was taken during an early morning walk during the past heat spell. Kasia had the barest of walks then, in her health interest and mine. We are happy to say that our air-conditioning is actually off and we are getting a delightful breeze through our windows. We probably will have two or three more walks today in order for us to take advantage of the nice breeze.
Boy, how I wish that we had some clouds in the sky right now.
Like most of the eastern part of America, we are in the oven for a few days now. Yes, I know it’s July, but when the heat index reads 115, well, I’d like to talk to those who don’t believe in global warming.
You know it’s hot out when even the bay water looks like it could be stock for soup! Yet some folks who have their vacation now are ON the beach. How they can actually stand the heat is beyond me. There are more heat advisories than you can shake a stick at, but just seeing that hot sand?**shaking my head**
Kasia and I walk early in the morning on the shadiest street. Once we take care of business, she’ll turn and look at me as to say,” Air-conditioning…NOW!” I can’t say I blame her.
Here’s hoping for cooler weather and that you are staying cool too!
The sun is out. I know :understatement of the day.
What the photo fails to convey is that the wind is blustery at 25 to 40 miles per hour. If you didn’t get the memo and you lived here by me at Undisclosed Location, let me confirm for you what you felt when you went out this morning and felt.
“Damn, it’s cold out.”
My buddy Juls who lives on the side of a mountain in another state. Our average difference is usually 15 degrees colder there than here.The clincher here, though,is the bay.
Nice picture, right? The 32 degree temperature puts a little different spin on that picture.
Gentle reader, please keep my Zush in your thoughts and prayers.
She is hanging in there, but I can see the changes starting to come up, which just make me sad, and I’m sure it makes Jim equally as sad.She is just as good as she normally is, but a few little things are making me pray extra hard for her. It’s funny, because I just keep getting up one day at a time, putting two feet on the floor while she puts her four paws down, as does her sister.I think they read off of their “pack” and Zush knows we love each other every day. She tires out, although I try not to walk her too much, but some days I think maybe it’s just the winter weather making her hurt as I do.
Her cataracts in her eyes are starting to come into play: they aren’t totally blocking her vision but you can tell she isn’t seeing as she used to. Then again, neither am I.
I woke up this morning at 7am after falling asleep at 4 am, Don’t ask.
There was some snow on the ground and I dressed warm, got the girls out, and we then went out to downtown Cape May,to pick up my “fixed” engagement ring.
Unfortunately,my feet had different ideas.
I fell down.
I went down with my classic lack of grace, but for a different twist on things, my foot bent backwards, as did the rest of my leg. A few guys helped me get up, a classic sign of old age, and once I got on my feet, I was sore, but was able to walk on it.I have my cane out, to make sure my left side sturdies up.The rough part is keeping it iced in this weather.
This is a shot of how deep it was this morning around 8am.
Allegedly we are around 6″-8″, and it is so cold tonight.
