I’ve spent the better part of the last few days either submerged in water or wearing bags of ice on my head and neck. I was a sight. Never once when I moved back to my beloved Pacific Northwest, did I imagine that it could, or would, get as hot here as the southwest where I had just come from to escape the retched heat. I was wrong. Granted the heat here, is not near the temperatures being reached elsewhere in the US; AZ, Nevada and TX.. y’all have my sympathies. Truly.
I don’t do well in higher temperatures anymore. I used to lay out in the hot Arizona sun trying to get
skin cancer a tan. Slathered in a form of Crisco. I had the best fried breasts in town. -tongue firmly in cheek- 😀
I’m lucky now if I can tolerate anything over 80° without a puddle forming around me. Not a pretty picture to paint.
I found that while the heat was hitting its strongest, the desire to write slipped into the shadows to cool down and left me grasping at nothingness.. so if I seemed a little absent from posting lately.. you are now in the know as to why. I do want to welcome all my new followers. Thanks for liking what you saw enough to want to read my posts on a regular basis. 😉 Here’s to hoping you all are staying cooler than I am!
