Beating The Heat . . .

Well, the heat wave continues in Oklahoma.
A cold front came through Thursday
dropping the temperature to a chilly 97 yesterday.
Today we'll see at least 100 with brutal heat indexes.
The humdity is horrible.
Hubby started mowing the lawn around 7:30.
Hopefully he'll be finished soon before 9:00.


Here is a list of things to do when you're trying to beat the heat.

Wear your bikini around the house, but keep your cover up close by
in case unexpected visitors ring the doorbell.
Not going to happen. . .
I haven't owned a two piece since 1975.
Need I say more?  
 I think not!

Fill your bathtub with ice water and take a dip when you feel the urge.
Note to self . . .
buy bags of ice.

Stick your head in the freezer for a few minutes while you breathe deeply.

Run through the water sprinkler like you did when you were a kid.
I might consider this idea, then maybe not.
The neighbors might think I've gone off the deep end!

Eat lots of ice-cream and snow cones.
Now, that's a great idea!
Oops, I forgot, I've got to watch my sugar consumption!


Seriously folks, if it's super hot where you live,
take it easy and don't overdo the outdoor activity.

Enjoy your Saturday! 
Keep cool and chill out!

these heat is awful, isn't it? and the worst part is how much longer we will probably have it.

I am normally a busy cheerful person but this heat is making me grumpy and not wanting to do anything.

I will try to keep cool and chill out :)

Eating ice cream (often) seems to help me alot to keep cool. A cool shower before bedtime is wonderful.
