Arctic Dreamin'...


It's hard to believe that this photo was taken of my front yard six months ago! I miss it...

Today, is going to be 86 degrees F, with a 94 percent humidity and it is only going to get warmer over the week, with roughly the same humidty. :P It makes me feel oogy just thinking about it! I don't need to go to the tropics to know what it's like now. I can just go outside! My linolium floors are sticky and wet from the moisture in the air. It is just an odd feeling and I will be happy for the cold rainy season to return!

My kids and I, walked down to our little creek for something cool and fun to do. Well, apparently the flies and gnats don't understand that the insect repellant is for them too! It says right on the damn bottle... I should bring it for them to read next time. lol God, I felt like a fly stick that they glommed on too. There was a fall out zone around me with a circle of dead flies. I felt like I was playing Asteroids or something and for the bonus round you had to get two or three at a time before they bit hard enough to make a welt! Sadly, I have a couple and that's when I said 'Game Over", and took us home! How's that for sacrificing one's self for their children. lol They ran home and jumped in their swimming pool. I went inside and bitched to Mr. C. He just grinned, put my writing notebook in front of me and an open Mike's Hard Berry, and didn't say a word. Have I said how much I love Mr. C?? lol

Anyway, today I am supposed to go with my MIL. I don't think I even want to ask what is going to happen today. *sigh*

It's chiily here. I'm swathed in a blanket, praying for warmer weather. There's no pleasing some of us. *grin*

Oh Shelley, bless you. I think we must like the spring and autumn months the best, huh? Well, while you are enjoying the heat during Christmas, I will be chipping myself out and probably wishing for the same.

Amazing how our little planet gives us such complete and different seasons despite being the same month. I love it. :)

Thanks for stopping by, Shelley!

What a beautiful picture. It helped to cool me off. It is well over 100 degrees here, probably about 110. It is dry here so I don't have to put on all that bug spray, but I remember having to do that when I lived in New Jersey. Try hanging with a boy you like smelling like bug spray. I'm sure they have improved the scent since then.
