Thursday,Hot Weather, finally

     We have finally been experiencing our typical hot weather, that we have here in the Idaho desert.  I should hit about 108 here today.  If we stay in our basement we are fine.  I does cool off here at night so the heat is livable.  I just have to water pots at least twice a day.

     Personally I love the hot weather. It can get to me after a while, but I do not do well in the cold and dark.  This last winter was long and the spring cold and rainy so the hot is welcome here.  Bring it on!  Now when I am complaining in a week you can all quit reading.

     The heat does sap ones strength and ability to want to get anything done.  So evenings here are a little more active.  I was up after the news at 6 p.m. cleaning the shop, finishing the laundry, wiping down the stairs.  I did sew during the day.  But the active work came at night.  Just too hot to really sweat on purpose.

     My kitchen is a wreck as it was too hot to clean it last night.  I need to help Hub's choose the boards that we will replace on the deck. No use painting and scraping boards we will be replacing. Hub's will be flying to Twin Falls the week of the 17th to stay with the baby then home and we will drive back to meet Sluggy and her Hubby, if she has not killed him, or eaten him as some mothers do their young.

     I have to take a girl friend out to lunch and then go back to court and deal with my brother's restraining order.  Then home to sew.

Have a great and productive day!

  1. I had no idea it got so hot in Idaho.
    It's not even that hot in Oklahoma we are having a fairly mild summer so far.

    1. We have air conditioning but we don't run it, unless someone is here. My daughter how ever runs her's full tilt and when we are at the ranch it will be much cooler as we are up really high. Don't worry we won't let you melt.

  3. !08 is insanely hot. Do y'all have a/c? (It is kind of a must here) We have reached that point in the summer where the nights are not substantially cooler than the days, plus the humidity has been so high it feels like we are breathing liquid air. I try to enjoy each season as it comes and not gripe when I get in the car and my sunglasses fog up immediately, but sometimes I hit the front door and the first thing out f my mouth is UGH!
    Have a great day and try to stay cool. Those temps mean you need to eat lots of ice cream, right?

    1. We have virtually no humidity here. When it does get humid maybe once a year we all die and complain loudly. I gets to about 65 at night and then that is great if it stayed that hot all night like it does in the Dakotas we would all perish.

  5. I totally get it about the heat and sweating on purpose! Bummer thing here, you walk outside, you sweat - just sitting there you sweat. It is so humid and in the summer, there is not a lot of wind. Though I doubt I would like the cold, I love winter here - just cool enough for a jacket. Thinking cool thoughts...

  6. It is so humid here. I live 50 miles north of Anne. I will take the sunshine whenever it comes, with heat or cold. I cannot see Denise eating him. I can see her killing him. 108 F is just fine without humidity!
    the humidity with even 75 degrees chokes me. Our weather is wearable. That is how bad the muggy air feels.

    1. I cannot tolerate humidity, I am just not used to it.

  7. I live in the high desert in California, and it is a dry heat. Today is just ghastly. Thankfully I have A/C on, but I just feel bleh.
