Hot Enough to Fry Eggs Outside

Oh my goodness is it ever hot here.

At one point this morning, the temp said 98 but the real feel was 112!  that's just too hot.  

I had to come in from gardening around 7:30 this morning.   Basically watered the  pots and came back inside.  Sam didn't stay out the entire time either.... and he didn't want to go back outside!

I just can't take the heat anymore like I used to. 

Sure hope everyone stays hydrated and safe while the temps stay so high.

Friday I wasn't feeling good at all so made Dr appt and left work in a hurry.

About a 15 mile drive from downtown to the suburbs; trip starts with a wreck on the freeway as soon as I got on, so I just got off at the next exit and drove the service road until I could see cars moving again. It was cloudy.

I went a few more miles and saw some lightning in the west then couldn't see a thing!  The clouds decided to get closer to the earth,

And then the wind was blowing trees all over and my XUV was being blown too.  Cars started slowing down when the rain decided to hit. And man, it took a few minutes and the highway felt like it had been raining all day.

It rained hard the rest of the way to the Drs office.

Since I had my car washed last week, the umbrella was in the house!  So I used my backpack as a substitute.  LOL I was soaking wet when I got into the drs office.

Of course, it was still raining when I came out.

I went home, took a short name, left to go pick up some meds and it was sunny, hot and humid!

But the good news is that I don't have to water the grass today! I can only water on Sun and Wed. We had rain on Tuesday so that's twice I didn't have to water!

Little Toes are a PAIN

My toe ran into something this afternoon.

It must be broken.

It hurts when I even just look at it.


There may have been a curse word or two.
