It has been so hot for so long here. In the last two months I think it's been 90 or over for more than half and over 100 for many, many days. It's too hot to do much outside, even running errands gets difficult later in the day. The parking lots are hot and the car gets hot. I feel like those people who are snowbound in the winter time, being stuck inside all day. Even walking to the mailbox can bring on heat stroke. And the heat just takes all the starch out. Know what I mean? Even with the A/C, you feel it even in the house. I makes me very lethargic and not interested in much except playing with my Farm Town farm on Facebook! I try to get started on sewing projects and just can't get into it.

And the worst part is the lack of rain! I think we've had maybe an inch or so in the last few months and that's unusual for Houston. We aren't even getting those usual afternoon sea breeze showers. In June if felt like August and it still does. Anyway, it's happening over most of Texas so I guess I shouldn't take it personally. This, too, shall pass, I know. The wheel turns and it will be fall and winter one of these days. Especially welcome, too. I never thought I would wish it, but a little hurricane might be nice about now. lol

Thanks for reading my whining. I feel a bit better and I think I'll go get me some tea and get off of this computer for a while. Y'all have a great day!!!!


  1. May I please send you the rain we've been inundated with ... this past week is the first in 2 1/2 mn no rain. Unusual amounts unheard of here for April & May+. TTFN ~Marydon

  2. Please do! Some are getting too much and some too little. We need to even things out a bit.

  3. I was going to offer the same thing, Barbara. We have more rain than we care for here, you can have it, I'll take the heat.


Thanks for stopping by!
