No, I'm not writing about my Lucy who you see here, I just needed a picture and took this of her the other day. Am I lazy right now? You bet. Today was 104, up a degree from yesterday. A few minutes ago, the news said that a "cold front" is coming in tomorrow and we'll have relief. What insane person is writing that news anyway? The relief is 101 tomorrow so who do they think they're kidding? There was even a story about a local dog's mishaps today. Seems the dog wanted to go out, so the owner opened the back door and said, "Hurry up and go". Within 5 minutes the dog was unconscious on the ground. Luckily the owner was standing at the window and saw him collapse. Off to the vet. Heat stroke. The poor dog was packed in ice and hosed down and is now going to be ok, but the vet said it was a very close call and he hoped everyone got the point of how dangerous our weather was right now. "Keep your pets inside", he said; and he's right.
I now have about 8 dishes in the back yard and I refill them many times a day with cold water for all the wildlife. If it wasn't so bloomin' hot I'd buy some cheap, big, shallow bowls for them instead of using my good dishes. I won't go out unless it's necessary. My hair appt was supposed to be today. I got dressed, grabbed my pocketbook, made sure I had money, and started out the door. Then I stopped mid-step and thought, "I'd better call the salon". Don't know why I thought that but glad I did. My stylist wasn't there. The heat drained her car battery. Hopefully she'll be back tomorrow and I'll try again. It was too darn hot anyway.
One good thing about not posting lately -- other than the reason of just being drained out from the heat -- is that it's given me time to blog walk and drop in on everyone. I love that. Can't tell you how much fun it is to catch up. Most times it feels like I'm sitting at your kitchen table and I thank you for making me (and everyone else) feel so welcomed. (Sorry if I write a book to you in the comment.)
Oh, I forgot. The accountants that are finishing up the taxes for Mom's estate called today. Seems they need MORE stuff and they gave me a list of things they needed and another list of things I needed to do. To top it off, she said she needs all this information by the end of the month. I said, "Tell me you're kidding. The first time around took months and you're giving me 2 1/2 weeks?" She says yes and she's sorry about that. Sure she is. So today I spent 4 hours on the phone and it will be like this until August. Bet I don't get it all finished by then -- it's impossible. The darn light that I saw at the end of the tunnel flickered and went out, ugh.
Until next time, xoxoxo
