Giveaway & Melting Away

I've given up on trying to figure out how to repost something so it shows up again in the readers. So I'll just add this new post to say be sure to read this post for a giveaway before noon Friday!

I was desperate to look at these pictures. . .

. . .to remind myself why I don't live in Minnesota. Because right now it's awfully tempting.

Yesterday it was 105 here. Forecast for today is the same. Today will be the 11th day in a row of triple-digit temperatures.

It's only June, people. Can we just skip July and August?

In fact, the paper today says this is the 5th hottest June since 1854. At least we aren't wearing hoop skirts and petticoats. Especially when getting in a van that's been parked for an hour in full sun at 3:30 in the afternoon.

Even a hailstorm sounds appealing.

Makes me feel like I'm in the old song from the Sons of the Pioneers record we had when I was a kid. I was going to post their classic version, but this version cracks me up. The second half made me laugh out loud.

Stay cool!

(And don't forget the giveaway!)

Well, at least you wouldn't get third degree burns on the backs of your thighs wearing petticoats and hoopskirts! LOL!

It's been 107 the last few days here, and miserable to be outside. We braved the zoo Tuesday morning, but we will not be going again until the fall. WAY too hot!

The good thing is that sitting in the shade is really not too bad, especially if you are cool to begin with.

That was SO funny, Linda! Cool Water was one of my favorite songs growing up and I've always loved the Sons of the Pioneers' version.

Bleh I don't like the heat nor would I want the cold! My husband asks "which one do you want?" I said "comfortable". hee hee

Even here in Minnesota, it was 98 with high humidity on Tuesday. So we're not immune.

That said, it reminds me that NO PLACE is weather-perfect. (Except San Diego. But its also really expensive, so it has that flaw. It's also really gray from fog in May and June, which is a bummer.) Almost every place I've ever lived has a season that is annoying.

That said, I heard someone say this last week that we (in MN) only get the right to complain about one season. So I'm reserving my complaints for winter.
