Jillian here. Sorry I missed my post last month. I had what was supposed to be a minor surgery that turned a bit more complex and I wasn’t able to focus for more than 10 minutes at a time even in the run up to the surgery. The good news is, I do not have cancer so I can relax about that. YAY!
So, it’s October. Yeah. Tell me about it. Here where I live, today, it’s 86 degrees F with a heat index of 98. AND it’s predicted to be that for the foreseeable future (the 10 day forecast)- it seems we are in a never-ending summer.
Hurricane Nate came to visit us over the weekend (and #1 son was here visiting from Rhode Island). It was pretty much a non-event. I’m grateful for that for sure. It DID blow my front door open which was interesting but other than that and the cloth on my husband’s pergola ripping down, we had a little rain and hardly any wind. The issue now is the longer it stays hot, the worse this hurricane season can get. The water needs to cool so the storms will die out but what chance does it have when the temps won’t go down? So, we get to sweat and fret. AND the weather channel ghouls who seem to take great joy in hyping these storms aren’t doing anyone any favors.
So, to cheer you up if you’ve stuck with this whiny post this long, I’m attaching a picture of Hobbes when he interrupted me and my sons playing Trivial Pursuit the other night and one of #1 son and his dog, Primm.
Happy October- and mail me some cool weather, someone. Please.
