the Mercury is rising~


I just looked outside at the temperature of the patio, its 110 degrees and its 2:30 in the afternoon here on the West Coast!! I'm watching my dear grandson and he is napping right now. My dear husband is outside with his brother, cutting back trees and trimming things up in the yard... of all things!!! I am praying for cooling to come and quickly!!! Didn't go out to any yard sales, just enjoyed the leisurely pace as the morning unfolded....no rushing and no hurrying today, as its just to HOT to do anything but read and drink lots of fluids! I hope that all of you are having an enjoyable day in spite of the relentless heatwave we are having across the US. Have a lovely day with family and friends!! Blessings to you and yours.....

That is hotter than I have ever experienced..I hope it cools off for you soon. However do you manage to have any energy? I wilt when it gets up in the low 90's. Hope your Sunday is tranquil...and that is a pretty picture you posted =).

Yes I agree with Maggie Ann...that is so hot. My parents are in Arizona and about to melt. We here in the South East are HOT but not that HOT. My son lives in California. I need to check with him about how HOT it is there too. I did not think it got that HOT there. Beautiful Picture!! Take care and try to stay COOL>.Sandy
