One of the things that I truly have never complained about is the heat in this part of the world. I like hot and sunny every day. I want to sit by the pool. I am a "professional tanner." Yeah. Not lately!
It is hot in the summer, here in The Sandbox. We can expect temperatures of between 110° and 125° every single day of June, July, August and September. Yes, I do very much feel sorry for the workers who are forced to endure that kind of heat as they toil under the sun in the land of no shade as I sit either next to or float in my pool. But this is just crazy! Right now, outside, it "feels like 35°!" What the ?!?! And, I am feeling just as sorry for the workers who are trying to stay warm as they toil in the freezing cold, at this point... They are all bundled up. Who could blame them?
The Boy [our Great Dane], like his Mommy, enjoys the heat. He has a "blonde" coat - very short "fur." The poor little guy is actually shivering by the time he comes inside after he's been out to do business. Yes. Of course I have a coat for him. I got it out of the closet last night, and I will put it on him each time he has to go out from now on, until it warms up to at least 80°. I will use the "rule of thumb" that if I need a sweatshirt [or two!] then he needs his coat.
Today I am going to get my sewing machine out. I will be making fleece pajamas for both Kids. It is just a little skewed, as far as I am concerned, that we are in a Country that is supposed to be hot most of the time - and at least warm - during the winter months. My goodness, if we had any precipitation, I am more than sure that we could expect snow!
