Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be another hot one here today with a high of 95. If we do get that hot, it will be another record. Boo!!!! Tomorrow starts the cool down though so I think I can make it. My boring life continues today. Just doing some laundry and stuff around the apartment. Basically, just trying to stay cool!!! I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

Got up a couple of hours ago, made coffee and as soon as it was made the electricity went out! The whole neighborhood went out and finally got up and running about an hour ago.

The temps are finally dropping, around 94 degrees for the high today and I am actually a little happier about that. It will be right at 90 for the high this weekend. Maybe this is a sign that our triple digits are finally coming to an end!

Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Have a Merry Day!

Going to be supper hot again today and humid again. It is already 22c (71f) feeling like 31c (87f) and the sun is not even up yet.
I'm praying for you today Star!

Ha ha!

I am happy about the "cool down" of 94 and you are in a heat wave of 95! I am not thrilled with 94 but it's a lot better than that over 100 stuff! The weather guy just actually said cold front this weekend. Cold front? The high will be 90! I better get my winter coat out!

Hang in there, Star. But if you get to feeling too bad, go home and get some rest. Health is worth more than money.

Sounds good---add tea and hot cocoa options to that coffee!
