It’s Been a Hot One (Duh)

Sometimes you just need to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. Other days, it’s so hot, you don’t want to move. You can’t fathom going outside for longer than necessary (like those -30 degree winter days when your mom would only let you run to the neighbor’s house to play inside; it’s like that {minus the running}).

The nice thing about the heat, though, is that it makes you appreciate the shade and the lake/pool/rain. Anytime you can relax and get cool, especially with friends, is a great time. A cold beverage helps, too.

Unless you don’t like people.

Then, you’re just stuck indoors enjoying a good book, watching a movie/TV, or napping on your days off. It’s not a bad thing, not really, just maybe a bit lonely. But, perhaps you like that. And, a good book that really draws you in and makes you care about the characters can help you feel like you’re part of that world. You’re not just reading about the adventure, you’re tagging along. ….Not every book does that. And that’s okay. Not every book has to. Maybe not every book needs to.

But, on a hot day, it’s nice to just relax and do nothing; just enjoy a little me time or a little friend time. Except that all your outdoor chores continue to pile up. Maybe that’s why autumn seems to have so many people outside doing chores (that …or the leaves on the ground have something to do with it).

At least my grass isn’t growing, so I don’t have to mow it.

Don’t get me wrong, summer has been good fun, but the blistering heat…yeah, I’m over that. A few days [or weeks] in the low 80’s would be nice.

Of course, then I’d have to go outside. Maybe see people. You know what, never mind. I like 90+ degree days.
