Hot Celebrating!!

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Last night we enjoyed Gwen at her school's talent show. She played as good as she looked:

This morning hubby went with me to take Natalie to school and we both stayed for the awards program. Natalie has earned Honor Roll - High Honors for this school year and received a lovely gold-embossed certificate. DD will probably post picture to FB, but she hasn't yet. We got to meet a couple of Natalie's friends, too.

With the heat and humidity rolling in with the season, my appetite is mercifully down a bit. I plan to eat smart. Had a beautiful green salad for lunch. Right now fruit looks better than cake; the grapes look better than even ice cream. Drinks look the best of all! Hoping to take advantage. I didn't get much of a run yesterday, so will need to be aware and stay active. In the heat it is easy just to veg out. Usually once I get moving, I want to go. Right now we aren't using the air conditioner (hubby has a theory about why we shouldn't be using it right now) and I bet we'll hit 100 today indoors. We'll see.

Hoping you have good things to celebrate and are adapting to any change in your weather and situation.

    Good job Gwen and Natalie! Do you at least have some fans running? I don't think I could survive for a huge length of time without it. My allergies and asthma would land me in big trouble!

    emoticon to Gwen and Natalie! That is fantastic!

    I can't even imagine 100 heat. I am finding 73 in the sun hot lol. I would love to know your husband's theory. We have never had or used air conditioning. We would get summers that would go from the 80's to the 90's. I planted some sunflowers and pumpkins this morning while it was cool and then we took Daisy for a much needed swim. She can't tolerate the heat at all. She has always done better with the cold.

    I would find cold meals refreshing on hot days, nice to have a salad.

    Congratulations to both Gwen and Natalie. They are fortunate to have your loving support of their efforts as they grow and come into their own. It's wonderful!

    Hope you have ways to cope with the heat and keep as cool as you can … 100 degrees indoors is challenging.

    Congratulations to Natalie! Proud of her accomplishment, especially in light of all she's been through this year!

    That's wonderful that Gwen did so well @ the recital! Go, Gwen! What an accomplishment.

    Keep cool.

    Congratulations on the wonderful granddaughters! Natalie’s perseverance must come from her grandmother’s DNA? 👏👏👏

    May is a lovely month for celebrations, isn't it? Congrats to Natalie on her honors.

    And it's a blessing when the appetite naturally suppresses.
