It's been very, very hot in our neck of the woods. In the 90's, at least. I'm done with heat and ready to move to Alaska. The kids played softball after my eldest daughter's Shakespeare play rehersal today. All I could think was, "You've got to be kidding." Now, I'm not exactly athletically inclined. No one, absolutely no one has ever said, "Oooooh, I want Lisa on OUR team!". But this is such a nice group of kids and parents, mostly homeschoolers that we knew or have gotten to know during the play rehersals and productions. No one would yell at me too much for dropping the ball, so to speak. It looked like such fun! But I could barely keep myself upright on the bleachers, it was so hot. Just looking at everyone in the sun gave me a headache. . . .
But we're home now. Home where it's just as hot, but where we can flop on the couch and turn the fan on screamin' high and aimed right at us. Home where we can pick a movie to watch and just v e g o u t and relax. Somehow, the heat seems more bearable when you are lying down with a fan blowing all over the place =) My dear husband took one look at me and said, "Let's go to our favorite Chinese food restaurant for dinner" and it took me .005 seconds to say, "Yes!". It was yummy, and no dishes to clean up makes for an even more relaxing evening. We are so blessed =)
Tomorrow, I'm headed out to my favorite Farmer's Market (it's got over 100 vendors. There's a natural soap booth--www.montclairsoaps.com, which has the best soap on the planet, trust me. There are meat sellers, a honey lady, a knife-sharpening guy, ready-made natural food, raw milk, a children's area, live music, raw juices, all kinds of bakery items, tons of organic produce--this place has it all, literally). I love my trips to the FM and will get there early to beat the heat and crowd.
Hope your weekend is as successful and fun!
