Drag Me Down Damn Hot

For the past 10 days, we have had daytime temperatures from 105F to 112F. 

Other than 6 hours in the morning (5:30 am - 10:30 am), it is just too damn hot for me in the afternoon.  I get all my gardening chores, watering chores, and outdoor chores done in the early morning.  

As I get older, the extreme heat is much harder for me to tolerate.  

It has sapped my energy and interest in just about all activities.  

I did enjoy, yesterday afternoon, sitting in front of a fan and watching a DVD recording of the opening day of the Tour de France, and sipping iced tea.  


  1. It would definitely be too hot for me! Nice to read that you are a fellow cycling fan.

  2. Anna,

    We expect around 97F today ... a "cooling trend." I don't own or use a bicycle, but I really enjoy watching the Tour de France.

    Maybe now that I am retired, I might take up bicycling as a recreational activity.

    Best Wishes,
