Still too hot!

Our patio thermometer (in the shade) reads 103 degrees. I won’t even try to figure the Hades index, as it clearly well in excess of 100% today.

“Too hot to fish, too hot for golf,” as the song goes. Thank goodness, it’s not “too cold at home.”

That line in the country song makes reference to the singer’s marriage, which is clearly falling apart. Thank God, mine is not. August 30 marked 37 years of wedded bliss for Carol and me. I can’t imagine that I’d survive without her.

I have sung her praises many times on these pages (screens? posts? whatever!) and don’t need to go into all the reasons she is perfect for me again today. But rest assured I never take her for granted!

I really have little to blog about today, so this will be very short. I’m running a low-grade fever (99.6) and feel pretty washed out. It’s just enough that I don’t really want to do much of anything except sit around.

So, that’s what I’ll do.

I’ve spent much of this morning catching up with all my blogroll friends’ posts from the weeks when I was gone on vacation. I sent off another 30 pages to Katie, my critique partner, and I don’t really feel like writing any more right now. Kicking back with a good book sounds just about right.

So that’s what I’ll do.

Check back tomorrow for an update.

103?!?! Yikes!!! It is 67 here today!! Long sleeves here today! :)

Regarding foliage pics, a few more weeks and I will be able to do that. The season is actually late this year and the leaves have only just begun to turn. Soon though....

It's 84 here today and the humidity is probably 95%. We attended an outdoor birthday party and I will say thank God for fans in tents, because it would have been miserable without them.

I hope you feel better tomorrow.

Probably because of Rita, we are getting a cool snap- actually more like the normal weather for this time of the year in New England.
It was 84 on Friday day, 66 at night. Saturday peaked at 74 with a night time low of 57. Today it reached 67 at 2 PM.
Sigh - no shorts and tee shirt - jeans and long sleeve shirt - not ready for this cool weather.

PLEASE, send some of that cool weather our way! We are MORE than ready for it!

We've had highs around 90, lows in the lower 70's with humidity in the 90's %, here in the Tampa Bay area. This is definitely preferrable to hurricane force winds and thunderstorms!
