I just made a run to the store on my scooter and it was beautiful! eighty-seven degrees with a fantastic breeze blowing. I took the long way back. Instead of getting back in two minutes I went about four blocks out of way and enjoyed the ride. And I lowered my normal speed. I need to find a reason to go to the store again. Will scour the cabinet and see if there is anything else I just might need.

I want to put a commercial walk-in freezer in the garage and just sit in there until I am shivering. Too hot for too long.

Hey, I have a fireplace! Needs some cleaning, though.

It's 30C (86F) but feels like 40C (104F). We just got home from a picnic. I'm melting and drinking ice caf au lait.

Ladies, Ladies, can we enjoy a nice, long autumn first? Autumn is my favorite season out of all of them. The nice part "Autumn", though. when the leaves are pretty colors and clinging to the trees, farm stands full of the last pickings of the growing season, and the nice crisp air that smells so good. Not the "fall" part of autumn when it's damp, rainy, and the leaves, um, FALL, off the trees.

Give it up folks! PF wants snow. And being Indian, I will do my "Snow Dance" here in my apartment. I don't want to alarm the other residents. We have had two sent to "the home" this week. Both from serious falls.

So this being her first year in her new home, let us all hope she gets snow really early this year. I remember when she was in Montana, she was looking for snow in January. And all she got was a few flakes. Let her get to use her fireplace.

This week we had our third official record setting heat wave this year. Today, rain is expected and tonight during the Kickoff For The Pats Game. But we are hearty New Englanders and can take anything that is thrown at us. Today's temps are in the mid 70's. Oh how I can live with that!

It's going to be a hot one today - 9:15AM here now and already 85F. I'm going to get dressed and head out to do a couple of errands before the triple digits hit.
