I remember this - can't believe it was 3 years ago.

It is 8:20 am and 66 degrees at my home. It got up to 84 in the sun yesterday, but only for a few hours. We had a short afternoon rain and it cooled off. There are predictions for more record heat.

84? Our usual right now is 99. Its not that bad. Nice and dry - humidity hasn't been that bad.

I tell others not to say "its so hot". Mind over matter!

We came down to FL after July 4th. DH has work obligations and I volunteered for some family things here. We thought it would be a good time to experience two more months of FL summer.

It's been hot, it's been humid, but nothing I didn't expect and I'm walking the dog early morning and late evening and taking the grandkids places in the day. Not much different from September, just more of it.

One of the neighbors, a long time FL resident, stopped to talk with me as she was driving by in her car and I had the dog out. She plans on selling her SFH and downsizing. She has been renovating a rental condo she owns nearby and and has plans to move into it soon. She said, "Can you believe this heat and humidity, how are you doing with it? It's been so awful, I may wait until the fall to move!". And here I was thinking it was a normal FL summer and not too bad after all.

The shops on the island were having Christmas in July with everything on sale today. Santa in his summer outfit and a few of his reindeers were riding a free trolley we could hop on and off about town. We had lunch out with the kids and grandkids, it was a fun day.

DH found one of these and said a grandparent's kitchen should have one. So now we do. . I haven't owned a clock that tick-tocks in years, it reminds me of my grandparents house when I was a kid: so boring, you could hear the clock ticking. I'll have to keep that in mind when the grandkids are over.

I love it, jean. I am always looking for a red teapot clock like we had in the kitchen when I was young. And a red checked cloth on the table.

I will see if I can find any here. If I do, I'll let you know and bring it when I visit.

Not too bad....88 degrees at 10:30 with 25% humidity and a breeze...going up to 93. Worst of the summer heat is over with highs in the high 80s in a week or so...but we really need some rain. This is supposed to be monsoon season.

My daughter, who has been married for ten years, told us yesterday that we will become grandparents in January. Woo-hoo!
