Who Woulda Thunk

Over 90 and Holding

When I came out of church today and got in my car, the thermometer read 98F. The thermometer on my garage, sitting in the sun is now reading 108F.

The only saving grace is that it is not humid the way it often is in the midst of summer.

I turned the air conditioning on here in the house.

The Boys seemed to have enough sense to seek shade out there, but when I got home, Toby was in the new run-in shed while Tucker and Chance stood outside in the sun looking at him. A bit later, I saw that Tucker had gone in the shed too. I told Chance he had several nice options: run in sheds east and west of the barn, and all the trees in the front paddock. Not sure he took me up on the suggestions.

If it cools off for the evening, I might go out to lunge a little, but we shall see.

I did go to lunch after church. My choir director/organist had some surgery on Monday last week and he and his wife met us all at one of our favorite restaurants. He looks really good and I was glad to see how well he is recovering. I will be going over to their house during the week to rehearse a small duet I will be singing in next week's athem with another friend from the choir. I am sure, by then, he will be even better. Thank you, God, for his health.

I am dreading school already and will dig out my bermuda shorts and a sleevless top. I will still look "put together," and I might even be a little more comfortable. Looks as if we will have two days in the upper 80's before it rains again and cools off to the 60's again.



  1. Glad your friend is doing well. This weather is just so unexpected, our horses don't know what to make of it. Last week they had blankets on, they are not even shed out completely. Hope it cools down soon.

    That's too much heat for me! We've had storms the past two days, so maybe you'll get some relief. Hope your friend continues to do well.

  3. you're just trying to make us jealous, i reckon .....we don't get that heat here!(probably just as well, LOL)
