It's Too Hot!


It's Sunday. A hot, humid day with no rain in sight. Cicadas are still trilling in the tree tops and don't seem anywhere near ready to quit. I did manage to make it to church and had breakfast with my sister at a restaurant close by, but now I feel drained. I refuse to blame it on my full tummy which usually puts me to sleep like a new born baby. I blame it on the summer temps. It's just too hot to work. Yes, I drove in an air conditioned car to an air conditioned church then to an air conditioned restaurant. I came back home to my air conditioned house but it's too hot to write. (Hmmm, I sense a PB story in there somewhere.) So, in the tradition of a Seinfeld episode, I've written about nothing. I hope whoever stops by and reads this that you are much more active and productive.

  2. ;) Isn't that the way it always is? Come January I'll probably feel the same!

  3. I'm afraid to mention that our heat has subsided a bit because I'm afraid it will come back. I hate the hot, hot, hot. :) I'm also one of those who never wishes for heat in January. I know, an odd duck. :) I just feel better when it's cold. Weird metabolism or something.

    I finished all my student's papers yesterday so today is a self-imposed day off... Tomorrow, I start again. :)

  4. Ha--love the Seinfeld reference! The sound of cicadas makes me nostalgic for my youth, a feeling that I'm sure would be replaced by annoyance if I heard them in person for an extended period of time. Keep cool :)

  5. We are waiting for three days of rain that they are forecasting...out first is six weeks...but so far, only wind and clouds. The temps are drifting toward autumn though.

  6. Andrea, I always think I won't ask for warm weather in January, but I'm never satisfied!

    Jess, when the cicadas first start their trilling it is annoying, but after awhile I can tune them out.

    Liza, good luck in getting the rain--six weeks is a long time to do without. Hope it just brings nice rain and not thunder storms and high winds.

  7. I hear you, Catherine. I was amazed at the burst of energy I experienced when our weather broke last Monday. I'm convinced that the lassitude of late summer has less to do with heat and humidity than it does with low atmospheric pressure. Central air can fix heat and humidity but not the millibars on a barometer! Hang in there; this too shall pass! (Easy for me to say; I live in a place where Too Hot is at least 10º and sometimes 20º less than yours!)

  8. LOL, Anne, wherever we live, if WE think it's too hot, then it's too hot! I bet you are right about the atmospheric pressure, I hadn't considered that.

  9. I miss Seinfeld. That was a good show. Enjoy the air conditioning. It was Sunday, it's okay to take it off.

  10. It is hard to write in the heat! Today it's raining and a perfect writing - but I think it will be a cleaning and hang out with my kids day. with maybe a tiny bit of revising on the side.

  11. Oh, it has been a blister of a summer here. I'm not kidding when I say we have been in a heat advisory since May with about 7 days of rain to boot. And everyday about 3 in the afternoon as it starts to steam bake outside I get so tired. BUT this weekend we got rain!!!!!! And it's cooled off to a reasonable 102! ;) Despite the heat I hope you had fun while you were out

  12. I'm looking forward to fall and to hearing more about your "too hot" PB. ;)

  13. It has been the hottest summer on record here. Hot and humid since April. I'm looking forward to autumn. I'm over summer...and I never say that.

  14. This post cracked me up, since that's the way I felt this afternoon. I couldn't even think of what to blog about. Still don't know!

  15. Nothing wrong with taking a break. I've been doing that for about two weeks, now, haven't written but one blog post, maybe two, and haven't worked a bit on my novel.

    The weather here in Dallas is supposed to break today or tomorrow, though. You know what that means?

    No more excuses.

    ;)

  16. A cool wind will blow and you'll start writing again, I bet! Neat photo. Glad to meet you :-)

  17. I'm not active today. It was lovely yesterday, a cool day. But the heat's back today, and after finishing my revisions I don't feel like doing anything except eating, sleeping, watching movies.

    So I'm no different from you! And this is definitely a fine Seinfeld post. I like such posts; they make me feel like I'm not alone. We'll both start writing again whether the weather cools down or not, I suspect.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today (Wednesday).
