I will take the hot weather any time. I can always go inside to AC to cool off if the need should arise. The only problem I have is with the humidity. When it is too high, I have trouble breathing. During the nice weather I often go down to the patio with my sewing early in the day. As the temp rises I don't notice it unless the humidity is rising with it. Because I am only a block from the Atlantic, I will often go to the beach and sit at the table that is under the tree with my sewing. There is always a cooling breeze there. You would be surprised how many folks stop by to see what I am working on. And I am right across from BK and can get a large drink to bring with me. If I get hungry, which never happens, I can get a burger or something.

We have the snow now, Bunny! I woke up about a half hour ago to see it lightly coming down - now it is full force and sticking!

If I didn't have to go out and get Violet's medicine today and have the mobile grooming truck coming for Joie this afternoon I would love it but it looks like both those plans are in jeopardy right now.

Dismal, dismal, dismal. Gloomy, gloomy, gloomy!

We had a run of some nice, sunny days the last part of this week but today has decided to be yucky.

Woke up to a very overcast sky, off-and-on rain, lots of wind and temp about 50F. Because of the dampness and the wind it doesn't feel anything like that temp.

I feel like hunkering down under a nice warm blankie on the sofa and napping all day.

Oh Laurie, I just looked out the window, sure enough SNOW! I stayed up quite late last night, so didn't wake up until about a half hour ago, was lying in bed perusing DC and assumed it was raining as I could hear it going down the downspouts. We live on "the hill" and always get snow before "town" does......should have known.
I usually love snow, but not today, I am afraid it will keep guest Los away from our party tonight, argh....
Hopefully, you can get your chores done today, perhaps it is just a little tease. Good luck dear.

My mind and body work at their optimal levels that this temp when combined with low relative humidity.
