How hot is it?
It’s so hot, birds have been drinking from (and bathing in) Fred’s water.
AND HE’S LETTING THEM!
How hot is it?
After running zillions of errands in the heat yesterday, I decided I didn’t want to move from the air conditioning all evening.
I need to move closer to the beach.
I’m getting tired of the HOT in my canyon.
(That’s what he said!)
Fred and I are going for late night, and very early morning, walks together.
He’s not happy about missing his late afternoon walks, but it has been way too hot for him.
(We play football inside the air conditioned house instead!)
Fortunately, we haven’t run into a mountain lion yet.
Yesterday, Fred and I witnessed an amazing sunRISE from my backyard.
Monsoon clouds make for awesome colors!

In other randomness,
My airline ticket to New Zealand has been purchased!
And no, I have not, yet, booked a single hotel.
I need to get on it, because I know things are booking up quickly for February.
The other night, when I couldn’t sleep, I pulled out my watercolor paints.
My painted girl might look like a poodle?
Clearly, I don’t know what I’m doing with watercolors but it was fun anyway.
There’s nothing like a little midnight, insomnia-induced, art.
I feel like, when it’s hot like this, all I really do is constantly refill hummingbird feeders.
(Four huge, 32oz, feeders each day!)
I make the hummingbird food too … four gallons at a time.
I get tired of it when it becomes a daily thing.
(But, the poor hummingbirds are very hot and thirsty, right?)
And, I also seem to be making ice all the time.
The icemaker on my refrigerator has been broken for years so I’m always making ice.
(Fred gets ice added into his water bowl when it’s this hot … otherwise his water would be about 100F.)
Oh, and then there’s refrigerated melon.
I don’t seem to want to cook and/or eat “real” food.
A slice of cold melon is really all I want.
It was the only thing I bought at the grocery store yesterday, too.
I could swear a man at the store made a comment about me.
I AM the woman with the big melons!
