Hot Summer Day -- Taking It Easy...

Today was HOT. Basically hot from the beginning of the day -- and still hot now! Baking, miserable heat. (I think we hit 98' as a high.)

I got up before Marilyn went to work and puttered around the house a bit. Then I went back to bed and took my book with me and read for ages. And slept, too.

I did go out more than once to make sure the critters (especially my crows) had plenty of water (and food, too). And I filled the hummingbird feeder and put it out.

Plus when I got up I watched... surprise! ... the Olympics.

In the afternoon I talked for some time on the phone with my friend, June. Then I went over to her house and we visited there, too. We were snacking on her delicious pear bread (I ate way too much of it!), and I also ate a green pear from their tree (I love green pears!).

Marilyn and I ate leftovers for dinner (no cooking in the heat!). Later I made popcorn again.

Now I need to head to do the garbage and recycling -- and then to bed! Marilyn is sound asleep on the sofa in the family room. I couldn't even wake her when I tried before coming upstairs...

I got a Fitbit badge today! So did June and so did Marilyn. Now we're wondering WHY all three of us would get badges on the exact same day. Really?

The last I heard Jeff's fitbit wasn't working. It went through both the washer and dryer (!!!) hooked to his pants. Little wonder it's not working! (Rich did the same thing in the past, but his still worked after that.)

We're expecting even hotter weather tomorrow! Good grief! Stay happy (and cool!) my friends...
