Just the usual fare, when I HAVE to get up in the morning, hubby keeps me awake. So, here I am in the middle of the night. Well at least I've got a few minutes to update my blog..... or at least post something new.
It's cooled off here so considerably that I actually had to CLOSE my windows. I love it though, and we've had rain all day yesterday. For this coming week at least, it will not get too hot. Only August to go and then hopefully we'll be out of the woods as far as the unbearable heat goes. At least I hope so!
Thanks to TRUCKER BOB for sending me this, it's hilarious (as I can relate and I'm sure this summer so can many of you) so I wanted to share it with you. Thanks Bob, you rock as usual..... even if you are older than me! *wink wink*
Just moved to THE SUNNY OKANAGAN. NOW THIS IS THE PLACE TO LIVE.
Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place! It is
beautiful. I've finally found my home. I love it here.
Really heating up. Got to 100 today. Not a problem. Live in an
air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to
see the sun every day like this. I'm turning into a sun worshipper.
Had the backyard landscaped with western plants today. Lots of
cactus and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn for me.
Another scorcher today, but I love it here.
The temperature hasn't been below 100 all week. How do people get
used to this kind of heat? At least it's kind of windy though. But
getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected.
Fell asleep by the community pool. Got third degree burns over 60%
of my body. Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned
my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this.
I missed Lomita (my cat) sneaking into my car when I left this
morning. By the time I got to the hot car at noon, Lomita had died and
swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stunk up the upholstery. The
car now smells like Kibbles and Shits. I learned my lesson though. No
more pets in this heat.
The wind sucks. It feels like a giant freaking blow dryer. And
it's hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the fritz and the A/C
charged $200 just to drive by and tell me he needed to order parts.
Been sleeping outside on the patio for 3 nights now. A $300,000
house and I can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here?
It's 115 degrees. Finally got the air-conditioner fixed today. It
cost $500 and gets the temperature down to 85. I hate this stupid city.
If another wise-ass cracks, "Hot enough for you today?" I'm going to
strangle him. Damn heat. By the time I get to work the radiator is
boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet, and I smell liked baked cat!!
Tried to run some errands after work. Wore shorts, and when I sat
on the seats in the car, I thought my ass was on fire. I lost 2 layers of
flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and ass. Now my car smells
like burnt hair, fried ass and baked cat.
The weather report might as well be a damn recording. Hot and
Hot and sunny! Hot and sunny! It's been too hot to do shit for 2 damn
months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Doesn't
it ever rain in this desert? Water rationing will be next, so my $1700
worth of cactus will just dry up and blow over. Even the cactus can't
live in this damn heat.
Welcome to HELL!! Temperature got to 115 today. Forgot to crack
the window and blew the windshield out of the car. The installer came to fix
it and said, "Hot enough for you today?" My sister had to spend $1500 to
bail me out of jail. Freaking OKANAGAN!! What kind of sick demented idiot
want to live here??
Will write later to let you know how the trial went.
I once had the same thing, but the place was in Winnipeg, Manitoba (which we lovingly call "Winterpeg" for it's nasty winters) and it was winter. All about snow shovelling until your arms fall off and how the snowplough does the roads daily and keeps leaving huge drifts at the end of your driveway just after you finished shovelling it off again..... etc. etc.
Only one more month to go peeps, and this hippie chick is on 3 blessed weeks of holidays! Yeehaw! I'll be staying home and doing projects around the house amid lots of naps and sleeping in. Now that's the LIFE! But until then I'll plug along and try not to murder hubby on my worknights. OY.
Take good care of each other and God bless!
