But today it wasn't snowing. Instead the thermometer in my car showed the temp outside at 102 degrees. Hot and heavy.
This is some serious heat that we're having in Georgia. I'm sure it's been this hot before, maybe even last summer, but thank goodness I've forgotten about it. I took Bandit for a very short walk this afternoon. She was panting and I had sweat running down my back. We came back inside.
I had to work this morning downtown. I had to walk a couple of blocks, but it was about 9 a.m., so it wasn't too bad. I was on the 42nd floor of this building and the view was amazing, although it's starting to look a little smoggy with this stifling heat and pollution mixed together.
We've had about 1,457 more cucumbers from the garden. And even though I love cucumbers, you can only eat so many. So I'm making another batch of pickles. I feel like Aunt Bea on The Andy Griffith Show. She was a pickle making fool and apparently I am too. They really are good, though, if I do say so myself.
Last night everyone came over for homemade ice cream. I made peach and vanilla. The peach was very good. The vanilla tasted like milk, salt and vanilla flavoring dumped in a glass. It was horrible. I was embarrassed it was so bad.
The boys had some of their friends over too. I hope they didn't eat the vanilla. Swimming was the thing to do. The pool water isn't even refreshing right now. I ran water in it all afternoon yesterday trying to cool it off for the swimmers. All it did was run up my water bill. I brought out the Sky Ball and Wiffle bat, so they got out of the pool and played ball.
Of course, every bug in Henry County heard we were going to be outside, so they crashed the party. I love this picture of Meaghan and Eli. I think Eli was scratching. I mean, the mosquitoes were pigging out.
This is another favorite. Ross and my dad. Love those two!
Oakland Cemetery was great. I'm going to do a separate post with some of my pics. It's such a beautiful place. If you've never been, I definitely recommend it. It's just beautiful.
Ross is having his wisdom teeth removed Thursday morning, so another request to add to your prayer list, please. He'll be put under general anesthesia to have it done. I figure it'll probably be my last time to really baby my 21-almost-22-year-old. And honey, I'm gonna baby him good.
Gotta go. While my pickles are soaking, I've gotta soak my foot. I've got an ingrown toenail that I had taken out Saturday and it's throbbing.
Till next time...
