Inching Up Towards 100F

Miserable heat here. Warm even in the morning and just worse as the day goes on.

I had some kind of back spasm this morning that had me screaming. Fortunately, some ice and a propped up leg eased it. I must have done something weird. The chiropractor could not find anything extra peculiar when I went in for an adjustment. But he did some extra massage and stretching on me just to be sure.

The Boys are hanging out in the barn with the fans going, but several times I did see one or the other out in the shade under the trees. So I guess they are making the best of it.

The turkeys are hanging out in the back yard. One of them is making a pretty determined effort on the ear of field corn I put out for the squirrels. I do know they look for me now in the morning when I fill the bird feeder. The seed has a lot of cracked corn and they seem to enjoy that.

Thank goodness I have air conditioning in the house. Days like this, it is the only thing keeping me sane. And, it makes me think of that classroom I do not have to go back to in a couple weeks. School starts up again on September 1. I don't think I am going to miss at least the heat of it.


  1. I saw that the weather was finally heating up in Wash DC so I figured it was coming your way. At least it is August so the end is (sort of) in sight.

    Hope your back stays fixed. I could not figure out why my forearms were so sore this morning then I remembered that I used the big clippers yesterday to clear up the back garden. It doesn't take much for me to get sore.

  2. It's way too hot here too. I'm glad for the air conditioning and didn't do much outside either.
    Hope your back feels better soon.

    Hope the back feels better soon! It sounds like you just got the weather we had over the weekend - with luck it'll pass through quickly.

  4. I'm a new follower to your blog, but as a fellow "Jersey Girl", I can sympathize with the weather. Hopefully we'll dry out/cool down soon!
