I’m melting! It’s too hot here. I still maintain that summer is possibly the worst time of year. I’m sure there are a few (or more) of you who will disagree with me, but as far as I’m concerned summer is too hot! Today we had our first excessive heat warning of the year and I could tell it. I just step out for about 5 seconds and my hands are already covered in sweat. I don’t think I will be able to tolerate heat like this much longer.
It got up to around 96 or 97 degrees Fahrenheit today and we just had a downpour of rain and are under a severe thunderstorm warning until 1:00 a.m. tomorrow. I’m so tired of the heat. It exhausts me and makes me sick. I also have trouble with my joints when it’s too hot. Most people I know that have joint problems tell me for them it’s the opposite. 😕
I also tend to get bug bites (mostly mosquitoes and chiggers) this time of year. They cover my legs and I just found a bite on my arm today. Just, no. I just don’t care for summer.
I used to look forward to it because that meant no school and my birthday is in the summer. I don’t have school any more, so there’s no reason for that; I also don’t feel like getting any older, so my birthday’s not exactly a pleasant thing any more either.
Just a side note, while I’m thinking on it, today would have been Grandma Harriet‘s birthday! I’m sure she’s having a great time with Grandpa George and all her relatives. Well, guess that’s all on this end. I’ll try to write more on Wednesday.
Love and prayers!
