Hot in the City...

Friday, April 19, 2013

And my yard! How can it be 90 degrees here and 66 tomorrow? All I can say is that I don't believe it is going to happen. Even the dogs won't go outside and Max NEVER wants to come in. Sometimes it is 2am and he will finally come in from laying half in and half out the door. Yep, he's that kind of dog. A Protester... A hippie trying to lay down in front of the bulldozer! LOL

The geese are going nuts. I think they are upset because they should be out of this heat by now, but they fly north, get cold, and come back home and make a ruckus like you would not believe! Freaks the dogs out every time.

I am keeping up with my walking though. Got up at 4:30am today, waited until 6am to come out of my room and get coffee, then headed out to walk before the heat killed me. Can't stand this mess this early and if this is an indication of how the summer is gonna go, I am truly frightened. I may just have to break a leg again so I don't have to go outside!! NEVER WOULD I DO THAT AGAIN... I hope.

So all is good except mom thinks dad is lazy so they are having a spat. Dad has been lollygagging but it is so hot he doesn't need to be out in it because he does not drink any water when he is out there. I have given him the other 52-oz "mug" to carry around with water. It hasn't moved... thus, my father is ignoring my instructions again. Maybe if I splashed him with cold water from the hose he will get the hint. (but then I would have to run because he will catch me and I do have to sleep at some time!)

Peace, Hugs, and Cooler Temps, Please!

    It is the opposite here. I love it though. Not ready for the heat so the cooler temps can stay around forever. They have snow in our forecast again so maybe three is the charm. lol Keep up the great job on your walking. You inspire me young lady. emoticon

    I like the heat, but my dog doesn't. He just wants to lie in the grass when it gets warm. I was wearing all my cold weather gear when I took the dog out for his morning walk, and I needed it! It is cold here.

    I can't imagine such heat (not when my nose starts running as soon as I go outside). The finger freeze isn't particualrly fun either nor is the wind whipped frosty face :P Nice to see some others suffering too! I mean we have to get a spring sooner or later. We have such a short growing season here the farmers don't need it any shorter!! By the time we plant our gardens, they will already start dying again lol.
    So your dad doesn't like water! What is it with men?? My step dad and brother won't drink it either. Just inject pop into their veins!!! I am all for the water hose. Hey, you have two loyal guard dogs to protect you there!!
    I sometimes think having no friends is better then having to put up with people like you have been dealing with. Where do these people get off?? Christians can be the biggest hypocrits of all -so many poor children abused by priests who were not taken out of the system, but just given new parishes to prey on. Just so wrong. They still aren't being perscuted like they should be.
    Go north young woman, and cool off by skinny dipping in the snow, that would light a fire under your butt to get moving, I guarantee!!
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Ha, you are so hilarious about maybe splashing your dad with water from the cold hose! Also, you can come up here to Siberia any time you want to get cooled off. And then you'll want some warm clothes and lots of layers and we have them all that you could borrow because you probably don't own anything close to what you'd need! To be down in the teens tonight! emoticon
