thank you Vivian for your encouragement 2 days in a row!! :-)
I try not to go out in the sun between noon & 5 pm if I can help it. I am not into wearing hats & if it's hot out, I can't abide to be all covered up. sun screen is my other option or sticking to the shade!!
A hot day today up to 90 degrees! I still like to spend time on my screened porch. I put the fan out there & drank lots of iced tea!!
yesterday I was very tired & kept falling asleep at the computer so I gave up doing DC! just one of those days. sometimes it just catches up!
I hope everyone has a nice Wednesday!
stay cool if it's hot where you are!!

Challenge done! I have avocado in a wooden bowl in the kitchen. I am very tired tonight. I will catch up on posts tomorrow!
thanks Rita for your encouragement! ♥
interesting challenge! I have never done this one before! ;-)
a low key Sunday which was nice!! our neighbor's had an outdoor birthday party for their 2 children who share the same birthday! they were busy setting up tables & chairs, lights & strings of paper designs home made. it was nice to think how much fun the kids were having playing in the back yard. memories being made!! I miss having grandchildren that young (1 & 3 yrs old). such sweet ages!
I enjoyed some time outside, filling bird feeders & cleaning up the yard after our heavy rains yesterday! I also did my first short walk on the trail. I went after dark to look for the moon (wasn't out yet) & to see the last of the fireflies. I really missed seeing them while I was recovering from my hamstring injury. I am hoping to build up to my usual mile!
I hope everyone has a great start to their week!

I get 2 quotes daily from 2 different sites. they are always fun to read daily!
this one is not inspiring but funny! "Take a good book to bed with you-books do not snore." Thea Dorn
I was inspired to laugh when I read that one!! ;-D
a rainy day here which is just fine with me. a good day to read indoors & finish vacuuming!! my last day caring for the 2 cats, Jack & Tiger. they are very fat & lazy cats. their food bowl is downstairs but they have been nibbling on the dog's food upstairs! (the dog is boarded). I think they were in the same spots when I came today that I left them in yesterday!!
I hope everyone has a restful Sunday!

my trigger food is cheddar cheese/sour cream ruffle potato chips.. I have no idea why but I can't stop at just one!! ha ha... so I try not to buy them or get a very small bag!
another hot day today. my car registered 96 but I know the heat index was in the advisory range. the high humidity is suppose to break tonight though our temps will still be up there! I sure miss my screened porch & reading out there!!
the 2 cats I am checking on, Jack & Tiger, are too funny! when I first come to their house they want a treat! the one cat, Tiger will sit & wait patiently. the other cat, Jack, just chills on the sofa or counter & waits... usually when I walk the dog, Rex there, Rex will end up doing a few tricks for a treat! Rex will sit, stay & come for a treat! I think Tiger the cat figures if he sits in front of me, he will get a treat too!! the owner has provided a container with their cat food that I get their "treat" out of!!l
I hope everyone has a nice weekend!! stay cool!

thank you Lynne & Vivian for your encouragements!! ♥ ♥
today has been the hottest day of the heat wave stretch. I survived!! I was out in it to care for 2 cats, go swimming & putzed in the yard a bit in the heat! I finally finished sorting through things to donate. feels good to simplify a bit though I am sure I could get rid of tons more!! amazing after living in our house for 27 yrs & having raised 2 kids there is so much stuff!! each year I try to spring clean & donate. it's a slow process of letting go. the garage is pretty well emptied out now which is great! anyhow, I ramble!! thanks for listening!
thanks to all who stop by & comment! or leave a smile! ;-)
have a great Friday!

challenge done. a good stretch :-)
we hit 95 today! it's the beginning of a nasty heat wave. tomorrow we will be 98 or 100 with the humidity heading us toward 110 heat index. I can't believe how humid it is out there. just walking from my car to the Y to swim, my face was red & I was sweating! I only had 1 dog to walk & we went very slowly! fortunately the rest of the week I have 2 cats to take care of through the wknd. that will be good as they are indoors in air conditioning!!
I am reading the original book (from the mid 1950's) called "Please Don't Eat the Daisies" which was made into a fun movie with Doris Day. I love the old movies! the book is so old! I love the smell of old books. I was reading in the library having my coffee after acupuncture! I love books & I love libraries! ♥
a pleasant day! ♥

I love fruit in the summer!! I had some pineapple chunks in yogurt plus a bowl of cherries along with my salad for supper tonight.
the heat wave is starting. it was miserable outside! I don't know if it hit 90 but it is so muggy. I saw male joggers jogging without shirts! I hated putting on the A/C & didn't spend time on my beloved screened porch. we are suppose to get rain tonight. I hope so. it's hard on the plants/trees in this heat. I will have to start watering in the yard! the heat advisory starts tomorrow through Friday.
I got caught up on doing bills & cards. I also got some dusting done too! an indoor kind of day.
stay cool everyone!
