How Hot is Really Hot?

Howdy from the incredibly hot and miserable rancho.

I am hot.  I am old.  I am tired.  Today is the fourth day of temperatures over 100 degrees. I get home and go straight to the chair for a nap.  Thank goodness I have a caretaker for Dad until 3:30 pm.  He is settled when I get home and I can rest until 4:30 pm before my chores start. Did I say I was hot, old, and tired? Add grumpy to that.  We have a swamp cooler, but to be honest, it is not very efficient over 95 degrees.  

Here is the only comfortable place I have to hang truck.  Notice that the AC is at full cool and HI fan:

And why is that?  Well, here is the temperature at 2 pm in the afternoon:

And, this wasn't the highest temperature we had.  As I was driving around doing errands, I hit a patch of 107 degrees at one end of town.  Since I was driving, I chose not to take the picture.  LOL

I've done a teeny, tiny bit of stitching, but not enough to even bother with a picture.  I am staying on track with walking on the treadmill, but as soon as I finish, I hit the water bottle.   It's hard to stay hydrated when it's this hot.

Okay, peeps, nothing else to report.  My brain is sizzled and I am just not able to come up with anything else to chat about.  Take care and be kind to one another.


  1. Yuck! I do not like it that hot.
    Good for you doing the treadmill regularly. I am back at it also now that my pain has been down.

  2. Today...104 degrees. Should have one more day of hot, then back down 95. Yay....LOL

    I wore out my last treadmill. This is my baby sister's and now it lives at my house. She said to use it, so I do!!! I love this one. It is so quiet, I can hear the TV without turning it up to full level.

  3. I don't like hot either, I can't do anything properly when it's hot, and we don't have air conditioning. I just can go to the basement and enjoy the somewhat cooler air, lol.

  4. Oh, I wish I had a basement! LOL I would be hanging out there all afternoon. Last night I went out at 7 pm to do some yard was still 98 degrees, but at least there was a breeze!

  5. I think the phrase OMG is in order. Wow that is a lot of heat!!! Yes keep hydrated but should you be working out? As admirable as that is. I wish i could send you cooler temps.

    1. Yep, OMG is definitely in order. LOL I have two fans and only do 30 mins at 3 MPH, not too bad. And I wait until 630 pm, so at least it is under 100 degrees. LOL

  6. I can sympathize! It's been 103 here, too! We definitely stay inside!
    It's almost football time, and it's this hot!! That never seems right to me!
    The only thing that keeps us going is knowing that it will cool off one day!

  7. Rumor is that today it will only be 94 degrees! And I'm excited...LOL At least the humidity is gone. I am too old and chubby for humidity. LOL
