I’ve been down with sinus/ear problems for several weeks now. I am sick of it. And miracle of miracles, I suddenly feel better today! I can hear!
The heat in Oklahoma and all over the country has been unbearable and I found it easier to just stay in with my head down. They say a cool front is coming tonight and my husband decided to “comb” the yard this morning in hopes it would rain. I say “comb” because in this triple digit heat, nothing was growing. But he felt compelled to mow. So, he did. I can hardly tell where he’s been, but I tell him it looks great. It didn’t look bad to begin with. He’s a perfectionist and I appreciate that. It keeps things looking good.
I took the dog for a walk and the air was cooler than normal and there was cloud cover. When I got home, I checked the weather on my cell phone and there was precipitation headed our way – nearly here! From the looks of how close it was, it should be here before I finish typing this blog. In the words of the great Sam Cooke “Change gonna’ come.”
Just knowing things are looking up weather and health wise makes me feel like dancing! I need to get out of the house. These four walls are beginning to close in. Seriously, I think I saw one move. I get a little claustrophobic sometimes when it is just me and four walls. That is what retirement will do. I normally stay busy (I hate doing nothing), but with the heat and health issues, I’ve hibernated.
I know it’s only July and summer’s not over, but thank you, Mother Nature, for the reprieve. It’s not here yet, but “Change gonna’ come.” I hope.
How have you handled the heat?
