I bet the electric companies are sitting back rubbing their hands together, smiling and hearing the sound chaaaaaa chinggggggggg. Two days of 90+ degree's with heat index levels of over 100 degrees, will cause airconditioners to be running non-stop. I have both air conditioners on and it's 75 in here. I like it when it is 70 in my apartment, I can breathe better. I just got back from taking Emma home, and it felt as though I was back in the mojave desert again. It is so hot outside, I had to work my lungs and breathe deep.
I lived in this desert for 3.5 years when Jim was in the army. Hated it. A summer day it would get up to 137 degree's. Ever heard the sying, It's so hot you could fry an egg on the sidewalk? Guess what? You can. I cracked open an egg during a hot summer day and the egg white turned white, no kidding. Only things I saw growing in the desert were tumble weeds and cactus looking things called Joshua Tree's. God awful ugly they are, lol. See for yourself in this next photo.
They couldn't send Jim someplace nice, tropical, noooooooo they stationed him in the desert, lol. Sand, wind storms, joshua tree's lots of tumble weed, big fuzzy spider's, lizzards, rattlesnacks and coyotes. Yep, hated it there. Ok, so that's what Philadelphia feels like right now to me. It is so hot, hazy, and humid you could cut the air with a knife. Jim called me earlier and said, Hun do not use the stove to cook dinner tonight. He's going to cook chicken out on the grill. Works for me, lol. I'll make up some veggie kabobs for him to cook also. He'll like that.
This hot weather really makes people cranky. As Rebecca and I were going in the gate at the end of the ramp here at the house, we hear screeching tires and a guy yelling. Someone ran the stop sign and almost hit him in his car. He yelled profound language and peeled wheels after the guy. I'm glad I am home, lol. I feel so bad that Jim is working out in this heat. I packed him a nice lunch and he took his cooler jug where I fixed him iced water with lemon slices in it. I put 5trays of icecubes in it to keep it cold for him. He's not a young man and needs to keep cool while at work in this heat. Jim will be 52 years old in 3 more days. If you'd like to email him birthday wishes or an ecard here's his email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
I think he'd like that. Rebecca and I will bake him a cake and make him a card like we always do. And Rebecca will sing happy birthday to him after he blows out the candle.
Yesterday Rebecca and I spent the day over Emma's. The girls played out in the pool and Daniel stayed indoors with his mommy and his mommom entertaining us. I snapped a picture of him. And guess what he was wearing?
Yep, that red christmas hat again, lol. He was so cute running around in a diaper, cut off tshirt, sandals and this darn hat, lol. If you take that hat, he will say Cry, and start crying. Awwww, I can't see him cry, so we left it on him. I asked him what he wanted for lunch. His answer: pickles and chippys. I went to the store bought german bologna, american cheese, rolls, pickles and chips and some juice. He ate all his lunch except for the bread, lol. Emma said if he had his way, he'd eat pickles for breakfast, lunch and dinner, lol.
I have done no housework today at all, lol. I just don't feel like it. I just wanna go take a nap. But not in my house. As soon as I fall asleep Rebecca will get into something, or one of the phones will ring or the doorbell. So, no nap for me. : (
And I hate going to bed early because I am up before 5:am. Once I am awake, I have to get up. I just watch the news or read my email until 6:am then I make the coffee so it's done when Jim gets up. Oh and ewwwwwww, you should see his chest and belly. It is all blistard up. Yuck it looks so gross. He tried to give Rebecca a hug before she went to bed last night and she wouldn't go near him, lol. He didn't have a shirt on. I had to drape a towel over his chest and stomach so she would let him hug her, lol. I know when it dries he'll be peeling like crazy. And itching too, lol. Yuck!!!!!!
Well, I guess I will go now. Gonna go fix up the veggie kabobs so there ready for when Jim starts cooking when he gets home from work. Stay cool, drink lots of water.
Love to all................................
