Way, way, way too hot. Every year since we moved to Illinois, this time of year was flat-out beautiful. Our southern friends would visit to enjoy the cooler weather. It's 90 degrees, and we only air condition the bedroom. Aside from a cool week a couple weeks ago, we haven't eaten in the dining room for a few months. Eating in the kitchen even is rare (once you turn on the stove, forget it). I'm ready for fall, really ready.

Fleas

Dry, too dry. Amost ninety degrees and climbing. The fleas and other pests must be having good time. The dogs are full of them regardless of what I try to feed them to avoid them. The brewer's yeast isn't working neither is the garlic. If I overdo them on the food they just won't eat. Everyone said they are spoiled. I do hate the bugs. But the weatherman has promised that it will be cooler on Wednesday with slight chance of rain. You believe the weatherman?

I hope the fleas will die when it gets cold here. They are having a feast now. I went to vet who gave me something called Frontline. Supposed to last for month. I am reluctant to put on dog with diabetes. She doesn't need something else to give her trouble. Did you ever watch Animal Planet? I was home alone this weekend and thought would be good. Too much abuse for me to handle. They are talking about rescuing lotof pets left by hurricaine. The fleas are quite thick since I just noticed them and will have to remember tea tree oil next time. I think if you take precaution when you first notice easier to get rid of. They make everybody miserable.

the fall is here. i thought there also may have been some after effects from the hurricane (hats off to all who went through it), but i couldn't figure out if that was why the weather was so harsh, or not?
the wind is blowing so hard i can hear it over some music and my t.v., and last time i went outside, i literally, literally had to grip onto the porch railing so that it didn't make me fall down. the trees were looking as though they might tip over right along with me. i'm going to go look and see if it's any better out there right now.
