Why so much heat so early in summer????

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

This morning at 10:45 it was already 96 degrees outside. It has been so hot today that I did very little. Walked less, gardened less, etc. Did wash clothes and hang them out, but didn't really want to get them in because it was so hot. I did though. I just don't do heat well, and all this week is going to be mid to high 90's in daytime. WHEW......I believe I will be riding my recumbent bike instead of going for my usual walk. I am just drained because of the heat. I am doing all of this whining and across the street a new house is being built and 9 men were there all day in the heat doing the brick foundation. Have to give them so much credit for staying out in all of that heat.

    With the humidity and the heat I'm having trouble too. Just don't feel good and I know it's the weight.

On the other hand, the lightening and storms the night before also meant alot of lost sleep that I haven't quite caught up on either. I'm ready for fall now.

    I'm so grateful that I've been working out outside since March (due to Sparkpeople) so that I've acclimated, but the heat the last few days has been vicious. The main problem for me though is that we keep getting thunderstorms early in the morning so I can't get out for bike rides or even fast walks. Tomorrow morning it's supposed to be clear and cooler, so I'm planning on getting out by 5:30am so I can get some time in on the bike. I'll just have to watch for huge puddles and standing water.

    I can't take the heat either. Trying to keep up with running is so hard and I don't like the treadmill at all! It's almost 10pm and still 91 here with very high humidity. Supposed to be even hotter tomorrow :-(

Hopefully we will get back to normal temps soon. We don't usually have this heat and humidity until mid July into August!

    I live in Tucson, AZ. At 10:45 today, it was over 100! That is why I get up at 5am and walk or do yard work before it gets too hot to stand.

    I wish we have had Below normal temps here and a ton of rain. It seems the weather is very mixed up this year.

I am so Happy

Sunday, June 20, 2010

I am SO.....SO....happy. When I went on the computer last evening I couldn't figure out why there were so many emails. When I started checking them out, I found that I had been chosen as Ruby-Lite of the Week. What a pleasant surprise and what a great HONOR. I am so pleased. I don't know how the person is chosen, but I am just tickled pink. I love being on SP and reading about the day to day happenings of everyone. This is such a great team and I have sent well-wishes to people and said prayers for people, hopefully giving someone a support they were looking for. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE for making it possible for me to have this honor. Who knows, it may be you next time. For this honor, I have tried to personally answer each comment and give thanks for each Spark Goodie. I know on one comment to me, I wrote the thanks on my page instead of to the sender. By the time I realized (because my daughter told me), I couldn't remember which person I was trying to answer. If you didn't hear from me for the thank you or Goodie, that is why. I appreciate all of your good wishes. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I know how they are chosen, , but the secret is safe with the coleaders, though I have heard rumours on how they are chosen.
Hee Hee!
I wanted to tell Carla so bad, but I kept a real good secret this time.

Progressive Dinner

Saturday, June 19, 2010

One of the clubs in our community had a progressive dinner tonight. 40 people attended. You go as a team to do a course. I did appetizers with a friend whose daughter is in culinary school and she made all of the appetizers. As a team you go to different houses for each course, but everyone ends up at clubhouse for dessert. Our second course was potato soup with roasted garlic. Third course was beef, scalloped potatoes, green beans, rolls. Last course, dessert. I tried eating very small amounts and all in all, I think I did well. It was lots of fun and we ate each course with all new teams. At the end, everyone was at the clubhouse sharing dessert.
