Another week has gone by, or is starting, depending on your perspective. I don't have to tell you guys how HOT it is
throughout America, and even in England. I've been especially struggling because I don't have air conditioning. It also makes outdoor chores, like watering all the flowers and plants, more difficult and even dangerous.
I was out too long the other day. Even though I hydrated, had on sunscreen, and a big hat, and the table umbrella up, and frequent rest breaks. I noticed later in the day
I was SO tired, and not hungry and lethargic. I watched some dvd's and relaxed
upstairs, where it's a little breezier with the fans. The next day I was still very tired and sluggish feeling. Then I saw on the news a report about the effects of prolonged heatwaves, and I think I had symptoms of heat exhaustion. So, be careful
everyone. At the time you don't notice the heat creeping up on you.
You're outside and there's a bit of a breeze. But, later you'll be feeling tired and you'll know the reason. I'm still tired today, and it's 8:30 am and already very hot. I wrote about how to protect yourself in hot weather several years ago. I need to re-read!!
You can read these great tips ~~~~> RIGHT HERE!
This is how our animal friends at the zoo keep cool! Just watching these big guys
will cool you off!
Those bears know how to have fun while they keep cool. Not all bears are
as playful, though. Be sure to lock your doors, or you might have an
unwelcome visitor. This could have ended badly. It's really unbelievable.
One of my silly squirrels tried to sneak into the garage when I had the door open.
They also get very close to the Kitchen screen door. They are trying to make friends.
This morning, one of them climbed up and dunked his head in my watering can.
I thought he'd fall in, that would have been funny. I leave them (and the birds) big bowls of water to cool off, but they want adventures!
Finally, I've saved the best video for last! You will love the antics of these little
guys and their friends.
I hope you stay cool! I think I'll watch the final World Cup
Match, since it's on ABC. Yesterday's game was great fun, I am almost
used to the vuvu crap noise. Even though they beat England, I'm glad
Germany Won. What an exciting game. Today I was rooting for
the Netherlands, but they were such bullies and kicked people,
so I'm glad Spain eventually Won.
