We’ve had a break in the heat. A massive thunderstorm rolled through last night. It was amazing. Lots of wind, rain, lightning and thunder. There was too much energy in this storm for me to feel safe outside, but I watched for a long while through a window.
I haven’t seen a storm like this one in a while. The lightning didn’t feel intimidating or scary. It was almost playful. Have you ever watched a toddler playing with a ball that’s as big as they are? They just throw themselves into it, bounce off, giggle their heads off and do it again. That was what the lightning was doing last night. Bouncing around, playing, having fun. The wind and rain also wanted to enjoy themselves too. The wind would howl and throw the rain around in swirls and waves. The patterns the falling rain made in the street were interesting.
I guess everything needs some fun every now and again. I’m taking this as my sign that I desperately need to do something fun before my Summer is over. I don’t know what that fun thing will be or how it’s happening, but its something I need to do.
I have nine days left. Let’s see what happens.
I’m grateful for all the extra daylight in the summer. The sun stays with us until after 9 pm some days.
It’s gorgeous when I get the chance to watch it.
Like today, for example.
It’s so hot outside, like disgustingly hot.
Please be careful if you must be outside for extended periods. Stay hydrated. Heat exhaustion/stroke is awful. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone and it’s very preventable.
I’m much better today. I’ve been spending my days in bed but I made myself go outside for a bit. The weather is lovely and the sunshine feels great.
I don’t have any real plans and that feeling is nice. Plus, Wolf is free today and he insisted that I get out of the house.
Anyway, have a great day!
I’ve been working my butt off and I am covered with sweat. The yard sale went okay. It was pretty warm outside today and I’m totally drained.
This evening includes a long shower and some relaxing video games.
It’s been raining for 48 hours straight. Plus, its windy and cold.
Not cool, nature. Not cool.
I wouldn’t mind the rain, but I don’t need the cold. I’m over cold weather.
The flooding in the area is getting bad too. The river is majorly swollen and many businesses and farms are feeling the pain. People have been forced out of their homes and its heartbreaking. I’ve been keeping the displaced in my thoughts.
On the other hand, the Sun comes back tomorrow! Don’t get your arks ready just yet. We’re gonna be just fine!
Today’s post is a little late and I apologize.
I was gardening in the rain. It’s an amazingly good time.
The ground is soft and it makes transplanting much easier.
I have having to work on days that are pretty like this one. It warmed up again and the sunlight is being a very strong distraction. It’s not fair, I tell you.
Maybe I can work outside for a while?
It is so freaking hot out today. As much as I’m looking forward to Summer’s arrival, I can honestly say that I’m not ready yet. This damp, heavy heat isn’t for me. It slows me down and I’m exhausted way to early.
I think I’ll spend the evening in front of the air conditioner.
I’m not making a real post today. The sun is out and the air feels great.
Gotta go take selfies in the natural light. See you tomorrow for my birthday post!
