Dear NHL and JSL,
Monday started with rain that kept us inside the house. Then, we had two days where we could go out and play without melting into the sidewalk. After that, going outside mainly involved moving from the car to an indoor location, or stopping outside to water our garden. The only thing that seemed to like the heat were the tomato plants that gave us a lot to pluck off.
Yes, we have had a HOT week here. Thursday, we tried to avoid going outside unless we had to because it was reading at least 100 and the heat index was 109. Thanks to an emergency run to the post office, we all felt the melt factor. Friday, neither of you wanted to go out (not even to see Cars 2), it was that hot. At first, we stayed inside. At one point, we had a Wikki Stix competition. We tried to see who could make the most coils before they ran out. This was my group and you can see yours in the back NHL.
Then, Nana and Papa wanted to head to the mall to walk around for a little while in the AC. So we all packed into Nana and Papa’s car together. While there, we stopped by Borders to use a gift card that I had left. NHL, you were quite upset about them closing. You told me about the fun times you have had in the stores. I was shocked with all that you recalled. After this, we went shopping for a few things. While Nana stayed with me to try on some new shirts, you went with Papa to the food court to get something cold to drink. In the end, you had something yummy to snack on, I got new shirts, and my gift card to Borders was used.
Since the humidity had dropped some, the two of you asked Nana and Papa to open the sun roof on the way home. During that time, JSL and I had a little fun. He was falling asleep, but my frizzy hair kept bothering him.
With any luck, the heat and humidity will break soon and we can have some more summer fun outside at the park, our little pool, or on a different adventure.
