It's Official

It's Hot here! It hit 100 degrees today I do believe. I went outside with my book and towel and decided to test the pool. The thermometer read 70 degrees but I couldn't get in past my ankles. I just laid in the sun (with my sunscreen on) and read my book. After awhile without a breeze it got to be pretty hot so I got in the pool for real. It was still too cold but I got my body completely wet and then got out to get some sun on my back. I hear a tan helps to minimize cellulite.

It's summer. I really enjoyed being out by the pool on my chaise lounge and looking out over the lake. There were lots of boats and jet skis out there today. This evening the wind has kicked in again. It's weird how it just appears out of nowhere in the evenings lately. It's supposed to get up to 107 this week. Holy crap! Nothing like kicking off summer the first week of May. **sigh** I guess it's inevitable.

Tomorrow I have orientation for some tutoring/mentoring I am doing with adults and children. It's a kind of literacy project here in Lake Havasu and, well, I AM good at reading and writing so I hope I can help someone. I know it will be rewarding and it will get me out of the house for a few more hours a week. Right now I just get out for Alanon, banking and grocery shopping.

Today is my baby brother's birthday. I didn't get a chance to call him and now it's too late. I'm sure he's pretty loaded right now and I don't want to talk to him. I haven't talked to my sister in a couple of days either. She sounded much better when we last talked, her husband has finally moved out. Thank God.

We are watching an Elvis Presley movie on TV and just relaxing. I made some spicy crispy baked chicken tonight for dinner that turned out really well. Not much going on here in Havasu land but that's a good thing. All is well.

Hope you all had a lovely Sunday too.. :)

Ah, Elvis... The movie "Blue Hawaii", and a month later the (at-the-time) spouse and I were THERE-- no jobs, no clue on housing-- but THERE.

Ten months later, the Lancemeister! [Our son-- born in Kapiolani women's and Children's Center, Honolulu, Hawaii.. ON THE 4TH OF JULY!!!]

Sorry you hate Facebook so much Dorrie but I love it there too. I will probably always be there too. I get a lot of enjoyment out of the mindless games and chatter.

Pamela said...

Nice post! You sound happy :)

I am just sayin', it's only gonna be in the mid-70s, MAYBE 80 here in Flaggy...you sure you don't want to visit? LOL!

I LOVE me some Elvis! What movie were you watching? I think my fave is Clambake...

That certainly does sound warm. We won't get up around 100 until the end of May but it has still been plenty warm, interspersed of course with thunderstorms.

:-) Have a great week.

You sound wonderful.*smiling* I'm glad. The literacy project sound like just your cup o' tea! Good for you! And the warm sunny weather...*sigh* I am jealous. It is 40 here, and rainy.

Take care- Gina

Hopefully we will not see 100 at all, but it might feel like that with humidity in July :-)

Pamela said...
