Just Like A Heatwave

I've been singing the lyrics of the old, old, song, "Heat Wave" for the last few days and I can't seem to stop.

Whenever I'm with him
Something inside
Starts to burnin'
And I'm filled with desire

Could it be the devil in me
Or is this the way love's supposed to be

Just like a heatwave

I might be dancing around a lot while I sing it also.  Sometimes naked – because it's too damn hot for clothes.

Don't tell anyone, okay?

I had a different post planned for today, but we're in the midst of a record breaking heatwave.

As you can see, it's too hot here to think, write, or do much of anything. 

Except, maybe nap.


There's a reason why they call weather like this the dog days of summer fall.

I took the photo of the 112F/44.44C temperature reading at about 2:00 in the afternoon yesterday.  I'm not used to heat like this.


Here's a photo of "my" mountains taken from a distance yesterday.  I was barefoot when I took this and I think I burnt the soles of my feet right off.  (And no, the neighborhood of houses at the base of the mountain is not where I live … my house is a different area.)


At least, it's very pretty out.  The sky looks so BLUE and gorgeous right now.

To escape the heat, I've been trying to spend some time here:


To be honest, it's very hot (103F/39.44C) at the beach too – just not AS hot as at my house.

Hopefully it will cool down soon and we'll get back into the mid-80's.


But, did I mention how beautiful it is in The OC right now?

P.S.  I've got something touching to share with you tomorrow!

    Holy crap that’s HOT!!! I don’t envy you at all! Those ARE some beautiful pictures though. I especially like that last one…cool houses!

    That last photo is so incredibly beautiful.. what it must be like to actually LIVE there. Wow.

    Sis lives in Templeton, CA and it’s been unbearably hot there too. So glad we left Arizona because we had temperatures like you are having now for at least 6 months out of the year. I just can’t take the heat anymore.
    Perfect photos, Suzanne, and hope your normal temperatures return soon.

    Stunning pics, as usual, but 112???? No, thanks. It’s cool and wet and seasonal here – what you’d call “winter”. LOL

    I canceled soccer practice yesterday because of the heat and because I didn’t want to contend with angry mothers.

    How could anywhere with temperatures like that look so much like heaven? Gorgeous pictures.

    Re your last post. Anyone from Orange County who isn’t proud to have you has never looked at your work. :-/

    I have been melting right along with you. They kept the kids in from recess yesterday. THANK GOD. I was worried about them going from the school to the car. It’s FREAKING HOT!!

    “Your” mountains are sure beautiful. Next time I visit my brother in CA I’ll have to call you:)

    Yeah, I heard it was hot… I bill myself as the Woman Who is Never the Right Temperature. If it is under 60 or over 80 I am unhappy. I guess even in the OC I would be grumpy pretty often.
