A Break From The Heat

Friday, July 27, 2012

This morning, a little after dawn, I looked outside and I saw one of my little turtle buddies already sitting in the swimming pool I made them. She looked quite content. I took her out some food. Shortly after, 3 other turtles came. 2 males and 2 females came today all before 7 A.M.

I felt so much better this morning for a while and then things kind of fell apart. I did get in 20218 steps somehow and ate pretty good though.

It was less hot today. Less humid. We only got a sprinkle of rain last night though. We will have a couple of days of relief from the heat. Mid 90s instead of 106 - 108. LOL.

Porkie and the girls are doing better every day. Getting back to normal.

Yesterday I got my errands and shopping done - the abbreviated version. LOL. I went to the post office, bank, newspaper office, Kroger, Dollar General, Kmart, Sears, Penneys, Claires, and Kohls. I found a really good buy - a $36 wallet for $3.60 cents. I came home and lugged it all in the house and put it away. I was drenched.

    I hate these days when you clothes get soaked just bringing in the groceries. So nice of you to leave water out for the turtles!

    It was 108 when we were in St. Louis, but it didn't slow us down a bit. I guess when you are bent on having fun, it is a bit easier to ignore (along with snow cones!!)
    Thos turtles are sure lucky to have you around!! emoticon
    Take care,

    Glad your finally getting a break from the heat. When I went to FL there were alot of people from the Midwest already there and still coming in just to escape the heat and play in the cool waters of the ocean. Hope things continue to get cooler for you and the animals--it is hard on them as well. Great workout-20K steps! I don't think I could handle that much shopping in one day though-that is a shopping marathon emoticon I think I had you as friend about 5 years ago, may I add you again? Take Care

    20,000 steps, and yet things fell apart? Good God, I think I'd definitely fall apart if I did 20,000 steps in one day. I've only done that once that I know of, while walking blissfully around Key West, losing track of the fact that I was walking.

    Glad it cooled off a little. Good for you getting in all of those steps. I took 5 cats to the vet and I was exhausted and scratched.

    Have a great Saturday. emoticon

    Glad that you get a few days relief from the heat. However, it was still hot and you were busy. Hope you get a bit of a rest today.

    Turtle love instead of Turtle dove. Love it.

    We have a reprieve from the heat(sort of), but humidity is sky high. Thankfully we have rain which I am grateful for since the land needs it around here. So many places experiencing drought. Not good for the crops!

    Sounds like you got lots done yesterday. congrats that can be fun!

    Hope you have a great weekend and keep up with the steps and good eating. I am proud of your efforts. You do such a great job!

    Way to go!
