How Hot is It?

Alright, enough already! It is hot, as in hot! I mean it is realllllly HOT! Does everyone get the picture? For the last few weeks and it really seems like forever, it has been 100 degrees or more outside, It is so hot outside that… (insert “how hot is it?)

It’s so hot that…

–          My cats are giving me dirty looks every time I even suggest they go outside for a while!

–          The Weeds aren’t even growing (well that’s a good thing but still…)

–          Jack and Emma are begging to take the usual obligatory “bath”.

–          No one is going anywhere unless they ‘have-to’, you know like to McDonalds so it isn’t necessary to heat up the kitchen. Just joking on that one. Well Actually I’m not!

–          Jack and Emma have been volunteering to wash the cars every few days (playing with the water hose to cool off.)

–          We’ve been considering camels as an alternative transportation mode.

–          The one totally outdoor cat we have won’t go outdoors.

–          And we had a couple of “cool” friends stop by, but that didn’t last long.

Okay actually those are Emma and Jack creations from last winter, when it was cold out, sigh! (Yes the snowcat is Emma’s, Jack is creative but more traditional with his).

Okay, I have that out of my system now. No I don’t. It’s going to be this hot for at least another week.

I guess the last thing to say is it’s so hot I couldn’t find a good photo of me to put here because even my photo’s are sweating. Stay Cool, Penny

Just too darn hot!

Morning Dew – Nature’s art and lesser beings

I welcomed the sun early this morning. When everything seems fresh and new.There was a brilliant blue sky and the smell of clean damp grass, an earthy fragrance. Pleasant to the senses.

Up close and personal, I witnessed nature’s artistry.

Droplets of dew clinging to a gossamer fine spider web. For your pleasure and enjoyment I captured the moment.

One of nature’s lesser creatures was also out and about so I took a moment to capture him too. It was a joyous morning.

Greater or Lesser isn’t Mother Nature wonderful?
