We've been having a bit of a heatwave, and it has put a stop to any kind of routine I might have had going. Cooking? No way! House work? Uh, no.
My mom and my niece have been coming over. We sit on the lawn furniture in the shade, moving the chairs as the shade moves and relishing any and every breeze that comes. The kids splash in the pool, which is only filled part of the way. We have decided that we'll need to level the ground before filling it completely, but with the hot weather on the way, we knew that realistically that kind of work would need to be delayed. In the meantime I've rather enjoyed our lazy Summer days.
My weight hasn't budged. I guess that's better than having it go up, especially considering the way I've been eating. We've been dining on bean dip and ice cream and whatever can be found in the kitchen that doesn't require cooking, including take out pizza one night.
As much as I've been avoiding work due to the heat, I must say, I am exhausted. It could be all the walking back and forth between the house and the back yard, where we've been hanging out most of the time. It could be trying to stay cool, moving fans from one window to the next. It could be the food I've been eating. It could just be the heat, but I've been feeling weak and a couple of times almost ill.
I think it's going to be cooler today. I need to find the energy to get to the grocery store and clean up my kitchen. Hopefully, I'll find it in this coffee cup in front of me.
