Sizzling Hot!

Oh, My, Goodness! It has been so hot here that the birds are sitting still with their mouths open! The air is stagnant with the heat. Friday afternoon around 5:30, I noticed the Yahoo! weather alert said it was 95 degrees in Charlotte. I went to check my electronic thermometer, that is located on the east side of my house and therefore in the shade for 4 hours by this time, it registered 101.9! Today wasn't any better. Can you possibly imagine how our military in Iraq must feel; how in the world do they survive in this heat with all the accouterments of there uniforms? My heart goes out to them, especially when I complain about how long it takes the car to cool off after it has been sitting in a parking lot while I shop.

I'm feeling really 'out of it' tonight. Don't know what the problem is but the zest for life I have been feeling for the last couple of months seems to be leaking out. Maybe it's the heat. Or maybe I feeling ashamed of myself for complaining when I am so much better off than 2/3 of the rest of the worlds population. Ever since that humongous earth quake in China I have been so very conscience of how fortunate I am to be living in the United States!

Well this post has been a bummer, but I promise to do better real soon! I think I will be receiving some photos of Kim's daughter Suzy's eighth grade dance. After all the money that was spent on that child we are sure to have some fab photos, right?

Tootles!

My dear friend, I do hope the weather improves and imagine we have it all year round!! While many complaint on winter, I only complain about the sun. Sorry, you are not feeling not so happy, hot weather does make people cranky at times (like my husband hehehe).

I hope to see those beautiful pictures soon. Take care and we'll talk again soon, hugs always :)
