96 Degrees

This is not a spin off group from the 90's boy band. This is the heat index right now.  It is hot and soupy.  My eyeglasses are fogging sitting out here in the damp.  We have another day of steam and sultry heat tomorrow, but thunderstorms potentially Sunday.  I am fine with it.  We have had the best summer weather wise that I can remember in some time. Each night I've retreated to my deck, at least until the mosquito's decide it is their dining time.  DH's job requires him to be back and forth between overly high air conditioner and pounding heated lot. When he gets home on days like this, he just wants to relax and cool down in our lower level where the temperature stays pretty comfortable. The air conditioner might have to be running though to get the moisture out or he will not sleep. Pup isn't liking this too much.  He wants to be outside with me, but he looks like he has had enough of the dog days of summer already. 


DD#1 decided to head for the comfort of our house for the weekend.  She was home mid day and spent a few hours with her little sister, and now is out and about with friends. Maybe I'll get a glimpse of her a some point the next few days. I had earlier made a meal plan for the week and used up much of what I had scheduled.I'm not sure if  she will be home for dinner or not, but when I learned her plans, I did pop into the store and stocked up on a few of her vegetarian favorites.  We did not have spaghetti or pasta of any kind last night after all, with DH making  a couple burgers and baked potatoes and DD#2 and I eating the last of the zucchini dish, and so I still have the egg plants to roast, which she loves. The wine I started on Tuesday  still has a glass or two left.  My only plans are to relax and have a family dinner with whoever is here to eat.  Pup is really getting hot now, but needs his walk.  I think we will go through and get him water, and head the out the other door.  He is a whiny little thing when he decides his needs aren't being met. The wine will need to wait another 30 minutes.  I rather enjoy these nights when there is little to report.  It means there is stability and calm, and just plain time.

    1. "It's the humidity not the heat" we hear on these thick days. I'll admit that after an hour or so, I retreated inside as well. Still, I know what is ahead in a few months.

  2. 96 degrees is way too hot for me. K has had heat into the low 100s whist on her trip around Europe- I'm not sure how she and A have coped with it, as we never get heat like that here.
    Nothing much to report is great - there has been a huge amount of that here recently!
    Have a good weekend.

    1. That is hot and with summer crowds doesn't sound pleasant. We started the weekend just relaxing and talking. We heard much more about DD#1 job and she got her sister to play for us all while pup was so happy to have both his girls home.
