Hot Days of Summer

Well this morning around 7 am I started my day in the garden hoeing.
We are in for a few more days of heat alert.
At around 8 am I was finished. The sweat was pouring down my face. Time to shower and head into town.
I never let the heat get the best of me. I'm a shopper...... Yesterday was 104 degrees. Time to stay in.
Not for me I went shopping at Costco with my daughter and her family. Her airconditioner in her suv was not working so all the windows were down. Oh my was it hot, hotter than haitis.

The way it used to be as a kid I remember these hot summers. Kids running thru the sprinklers and only the wealthy had pools. My mom always took us to the park where there was a splash pool for us five kids to cool off.

Well now my kids have pools, ones that only the wealthy had.

So While we were out on Saturday I picked up a pair of ski poles.
Kind of odd you think at this time of year. Not at all.
I'm going to use them as walking poles. The latest exercise. Need to widdle down my waist.
I will post a picture of my new set once my camera is up and working.

Stay cool!!!



  1. It's hotter than blazes here and I hear that tomorrow is not going to be better - about 100! I think I need to take a trip to Costco - it's always nice and cool there!

  2. I don't like those hot days I'm afraid so I tend to stay indoors. Have fun shopping! Ann :-)

  3. well, I think you have been sending us the heat from Canada.
    I find it unbearable. Have only an air conditioner in my studio and the bedroom.
    But, thank God, we do have a pool.
    So now can you send us some cooler weather and some rain from Canada. Pretty please! We need it.
    God bless, Evi
