Another Scorcher

It's 8:45 a.m. and it's already 86 outside.  That's hot.  No, make that Hot with a capital H.  No, make that HOT!!!  They're predicting another day of temps over 100 in our area of Michigan.  I've never run my central air as much as I have this summer.  And summer isn't even half-over yet.  Yikes!  Global warming is a fact of life now.  So, all of you non-eco-friendly folks, stop mowing your lawns, filling your gas tanks, and firing up your gas grills on ozone-action days!  (At least wait until the evening when it's a little cooler.)  You're making it hotter and causing my mascara to run. 

We've been able to keep cool in the pool a lot this summer.  (Well, kind of...after we added cold water to it.  The pool actually got up to 90 one day and I was sweating in it.  Seriously.  How can you even sweat in the water?)  Sunday was a lazy day of playing in the pool in between time spent doing some household chores and napping.  I love those days.  The only thing that could have made it better was some take-out for dinner.  Oh well...there's always next Sunday.

This is the neighbor's dead lawn in the background...not ours.  Matt faithfully waters ours so it looks really pretty...and so Sir Cyrus has soft, fluffy grass to walk on.

This is the inflatable target they were using.  It's looking pretty sad and no-so-inflated anymore...but they still had fun with it.
