Beating the heat

3 Jul

We are trying to stay cool by spending time at the pool and keeping the air conditioning on. Plus, lots and lots of coloring.

Miss H has turned our sliding glass doors into her gallery. She loves to put her ‘H’ in everything too.

She had a little help with this one. I was told that if I did not color, I was going to time out. Very seriously.

We still have a few friends without power and we have offered them our pool and air conditioning! We were so lucky to not lose ours in this heat wave. Hope everyone is staying cool! Happy almost 4th of July!

Hot, stormy and no cell phones

30 Jun

We are experiencing crazy hot weather, had a crazy storm last night and we don’t have cell phone service. But, miraculously, we still have power (and cable television).

The storm seemed to come out of nowhere and it felt like the roof was going to come off our house. I learned (from the Weather Channel) that this type of storm is called a derecho. Then today, it got back up to 100 and more storms are supposed to be coming this way. Keeping my fingers crossed that the power stays on this time too.

Since it was so hot, pool time was essential.

Hope everyone has power and is staying cool!
