It's so hot here, something we share with the rest of the country this weekend.  There was not much done.  More of an update tomorrow.

Hope you are staying cool wherever you are.  This is dangerous heat, stay safe!

Have a smoothie!
(but not a tomato smoothie, ha)

Have a great weekend!


  1. spouse and I have been inside since 6p friday night. we will not leave the house until 7a monday when we have to report to work. 97F both days. thank the dogs and cats for central air conditioning!

    1. It's horrible isn't it? And we tend to expect it this time of year here but for y'all I bet it's crazy hot. Stay safe!

  2. My husband and I have been only doing yard work in the early morning. Since we haven't had any rain there is no need to mow the lawn. Since we are both elderly, jeeze, I can't believe I've actually admitted that, anyways, we stay hydrated and with the AC running at 78.

    1. That's what you should do, stay safe. And elderly, pfft, you are only as old as you feel.

  3. A friend in Iowa had emailed just the other day and their actual heat was 112 deg. That Did Not include the heat index by the way. Very unusual for Iowa to get that hot, but now days anything is possible.
    A Smoothie...….I gotta say; I have never had one. I pretty much stick to the basics.
    I must say; I will be glad when Fall gets here.
    Keep cool and have a great week.
    Now, for a bit of humor......…
    How hot is it?
    the cows are giving evaporated milk.
    the chickens are laying hard-boiled eggs
    I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking
    hot water now comes out of both taps.
    every time I think about ice, water pours out of my ears.
    you actually burn your hand opening the car door.
    you realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
    the birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
    the potatoes cook underground, and all you have to do to have lunch is to pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
    farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
    you start buying stock in Gatorade.
    the trees are whistling for the dogs.
    you start putting ice cubes in your water bed.
    you no longer associate bridges (or rivers) with water.
    you can say 113 degrees without fainting.
    Satan decided to take the day off.
    the four seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot and ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
    you eat hot chilies to cool your mouth off.
    your dream house is any house in Alaska.
    you can make instant sun tea.
    your car overheats before you drive it.
    hot water now comes out of both taps.
    you learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron.
    the temperature drops below 95, you feel a bit chilly.
    you've experienced condensation on your butt from the hot water in the toilet bowl. you would give anything to be able to splash cold water on your face.

    Miniature Golf;
    It was at a miniature golf course on a brutally hot day when I saw a father with 3 kids.
    "Who's winning?" I asked cheerfully.
    "I am" said one "no, I am" said another.
    "No," the father said "their mother is!"

    1. THOSE are hilarious!! I'm going to use some of them. Thanks! And yes, you stay inside where it's cool too and don't overdo it!!

  4. I'll take the tomato smoothie if it's icy cold with crushed ice!

    1. You know it might be good?? Ha! Gazpacho?
