I sure hope you've been finding ways to keep cool! I have heard from a friend on Facebook that the summer temperatures have been miserably high. And of course the fires are worrisome and smoke isn't pleasant to breathe. Also heard it has cooled down to a much more reasonable temperature so that has to be a huge relief for all!! Plenty of time in the pool for you? Or indoors with A/C going and some iced tea or some such. They've had very cold temperatures in some parts of the U.S. thanks to something they call a polar vortex but we're too far west for where the arctic loops of cold weather have come down. So a mild winter so far here. We have really only had two days of snow; 5" of powdery stuff that my grown kids claim was perfect for sledding in. After that...rain. Today the rain was absent but have had a fierce wind howling all day long. It blew our neighbors garbage cans (which had been emptied, fortunately) for quite a distance. Ours are in a more sheltered location and we weight down our cans as well, so they haven't gone a-traveling. I did see that another neighbor has his totem pole down in his yard. I'd guess it's about...oh, 8 to 12 feet tall. I have no idea if he will need help to get it standing again or if he can manage by himself. Will have to catch him outdoors and ask. I'll send the muscle-y men of the household over to help, if help is needed.
The only other news to share is that Hubby and I were able to have a brief getaway to the beach a couple of weeks ago. We went far enough south so that it was about 20 degrees warmer there than it was at home. Very nice change! Our room had a balcony with chairs so we were able to watch the sunset. Loved that! The room came with a pair of binoculars for watching whales. We didn't see any of those, but they afforded us a much closer view of the fishing boats away out on the ocean. Our room had a hawaiian theme complete with a pair of fake parrots on perches hung from the ceiling. Funky but fun, too. We had a little kitchenette in our room so hubby made breakfast (spam and scrambled eggs, English muffins with fruit jam), we cleaned up and headed for home. Only one night but it helped to get away for a little while.
Hope you and the family are all okay--keep it cool by the pool and enjoy the cooler sunshine!
Love and Hugs,Paula
