spending time under the fans...
and eating meals that require little heat...
it's just been too hot to even go outside and enjoy the pool... that heat just zaps it out of you.
i hung laundry out this morning with another load in the wash to go out... but i can't bring myself to open that door! i think i will just wait until the late evening hours to deal with that (and I can do that since the sunlight doesn't fade until 10ish)
and i was going to take a trip to Walmart to escape the heat, but the thought of riding in a car... and then getting into a hot car to come home doesn't sound all that great either. i'll take the dry 83F that the house is currently.
SOOOOO... looking forward to tomorrow night when the north wind is forecasted to return! (please don't be wrong forecasters!!!)
how are you staying cool?
ps. we made it! barely a few days... but we are once again all together! yeah! thank you all for the prayers and encouragement while I was going solo... you'll never know how much that meant to me.
pps. ha! so i did go into town today... it was HOT and THICK out there... but very nice to get out of the house... we escaped to cool places... it was lovely.
She's getting bigger... smiling a lot... and some babbling... I've learned that she doesn't like dirty diapers, she likes being talked too, she likes her baths, kohlrabi is not her friend and something I need to avoid... :)
My boy... who is such a boy... and I'm learning to let him be that way... make the messes... jump in the pool in the evening with all his clothes on... who climbed off the edge of the deck into this dirt pile with out shoes and just start digging...
... and who likes to collect rocks and throw them too.
And he's been helping me pick peas... we usually just pick and eat. I have to watch him though cause he just picks the leaves and eats those too. :)
If you're the praying sort... I'll take some extra prayers this week... I'm running solo for the first time for 5 days in a row! Little kids are cute and that helps you get through all the not so fun moments- tears, tantrums, messes, chaos, lack of sleep. :) Oh D - we miss you a lot already!!
We took a little trip down to visit family last week... lots of family... lots of great pictures capturing lots of great moments...
more to come later...
