Too Hot

I guess the biggest news here is that it has been so hot you can hardly breathe.  I got up really early this morning because I wanted to wash the vinyl fence that is front of our property and I knew if I didn't get started early, it would get too hot to work.

I stayed at it for nearly 3 hours and gave it up until tomorrow morning.  Tomorrow is suppose to be even hotter...near 100 degrees.

I get up early for me and Bobber to take a walk and then get to work.  I started to post pictures of my work but that didn't seem too interesting!  No one wants to see work yet unfinished!

So here is something more interesting to view: got to see her a couple of days ago and she's a funny little girl to be around!  Loving her personality!

Hope you are experiencing some cooler weather where you live!   And where is that, by the way??

I'm in Salt Lake City and it's finally cooling off a bit. Closer to 90 than 100. It's an improvement!

Marshall, TX and it is no cooler!!

Harper in just precious. It is sunny here and just a little chilly about 18deg celsius here in Waikiki Western Australia. We have very hot summers and mild winters. Love your blog and family. Kathy

I agree--TOO HOT! About this time every year I start looking forward to pumpkins and mums and soup and sweatshirts!

Rachel said...

It's a balmy 59 degrees here in Anchorage, Alaska! I do not envy your hot weather! We're on the downhill slide here; the other day I noticed the leaves starting to turn (already) and it will be cold and snowing in 60 to 90 days. You can always put more layers on to stay warm, but you can only take so many clothes off! I think I would melt in your heat (even though I was born and 1/2 raised in Texas)!
Can't wait to see the fence. ;-)

I was just over at Kelly's site listening to her say Bowwww. I loved it. I bet she would have been a big help washing the fence today. :O)

NO cooler weather here. Of course I'm your neighbor in MS. It's been blistering HOTT here too.
Harper gets cuter everyday. She's growing up so fast.
What a little miracle she is.
Be careful in this heat!

I live in Annapolis, Maryland, and I waited until Saturday evening to wipe down the vinyl railings on our deck...I am not a morning person, ha! We have had temps over 100 degrees (as high as 105) in June and July. "They" are calling for highs in the 90's, but cooling down to the 80's this weekend. Your granddaughter is just adorable...she is growing up much too fast!

I relate to your heat. I live in TX, just south of Dallas. Boy it's a hot one.

Stay cool!

Here in Alabama, they're predicting 98 tomorrow, with a heat index between 109 and 114! Too hot to do much here except move from air conditioner to air conditioner!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Harper is just a doll...I can never remember a summer where the HEAT has bothered me so much...It feels like you cannot take a deep breath

Kelley said...

I know what you mean. It has been miserable here. My oldest daughter loves being outside more than anything and she even says it's too hot to play outside.

kkparris said...

I am from Alabama where it was 100 today w/a heat index of 114. It is so hot!Looking forward to Fall! I enjoy your blog as well as Kelly's!Both are precious and I love how you share your faith so openly!God Bless and have a great week! Stay cool!

Andy and Wendy Ingram said...

I enjoy following your blog (when I get a chance since I have a 15, 13, and 9 year old) and Kelly's blog. I just love how much you and Kelly love the Lord. You both have a joy that only come from above.

We live in Colorado Springs, CO. So, we are not used to really hot weather. Even if it gets into the 90's in the day, we get very cool nights and it cools off just beautifully. It is more of a mountain climate.

Your granddaughter Harper is very beautiful! Blessings to you and your husband.

I live in MN and it is pretty hot here too! I just saw on the news that the humidity tomorrow will be in the 'oppressive' stage..........ugh!! :(

3LittleByrds said...

Nope no cooler weather here in DFW, Texas. We were at 107 yesterday. We just moved here from Fla. 3 weeks ago so it's a different heat but still hot. Hope it's not unbearable tomorrow when you retry. Harper is a doll as always.

Granna Girl said...

Hi! I found your blog through Kelly's. I have to get my Harper fix every day! She is the cutest thing. I have four precious little granddaughters. I live in West Monroe, LA, but I was born and raised in El Dorado, AR.

Maryellen said...

WOW, and I thought it has been hot in New Jersey. We have had a nice week this week. First one really. Finally cool mornings and nights where you can open the windows and enjoy the breeze.

Harper is precious. I loved hearing her talk on Kelly's blog yesterday.

Kimberly said...

Harper looks like she is a fun little girl to be around!! Its a bit cooler here in NJ around 85 today. Finally!!!!

Regan said...

It isn't much cooler around our neck of the woods :)
Ya walk outside and it takes your breath! Ugh! We live about an hour south of Kansas City, MO. Clinton is the name of the town. I know ya'll have to be hot down in Arkansas. We've been wanting to make a trip down there. Might have to soon! PS- your precious granddaughter saying "bow" cracks me up! Have a good week.

Regan said...

It's not much cooler here! We are from Clinton, MO: about an hour south of Kansas City. It's hotter than heck around here and unbearable! Hope ya'll are doing ok down in Arkansas! Harper is too cute saying "bow". That's my girl, southern accent all of the way! Us Missourians don't have the accent like ya'll in Arkansas, but we still have a little "twang" :)

Have a good week.

HOT...HOT...HOT here in Kingwood, TX with NO relief in site! I sure enjoy the pictures of Harper! She is just precious and I follow Kelly's blog as well! You are all blessed with a wonderful family!

Lauren said...

Of course you know I live in Florida, the humidity capital of the world!!

Can we get some Fall up in here?? HA!!

Lori said...

I live in a small town in North MS called Thaxton. We are between Tupelo (where Elvis was born) and Oxford (Ole Miss Rebels). I only live about 15 miles from Ashley McGee (anm_2006) and we go to the same small church. Small world, huh? Anyway, our predicted heat index for today is 117. It is almost too hot to breathe! Thankful I work inside!!!

Tammy from North Carolina said...

Blazing hot here in Mars Hill, NC, which is a small Baptist college town located in Western North Carolina about 25 miles north of Asheville, NC. I've been following Kelly's blog since Harper was born. She is adorable and looks so much like her nonny.

Leslie said...

Hot and humid in Myrtle Beach, SC! Harper is just precious! :)

Kathy said...

Love your pictures! She is such a cutie pie. It's 103 here at 4pm in Wylie, TX. They say the heat index will be 110 today and tomorrow. I'm dreaming of a summer home on the northeast coast somewhere by the beach.

FrancisMoore said...

Hot and humid here in Indianapolis. We are having National Crime Night in our neighborhood tonight. It is almost too hot to venture out to the clubhouse to meet our policemen and firemen. They are so important to us. Lovely granddaughter.

Rebekah said...

We are happy to be back in NWA and not in Waco anymore....where it is miserably hot in both places. But right we are in Carmel, CA on vacation and the weather could not be more divine. It is a warm 65 today. I know....us southerners don't know what to do with August temps like that!

Julie said...

topeka, kansas...my car temp after work yesterday was 111!!! it is sweltering!

Linda said...

Hi Judy. I always love pictures of Harper! Glad you got a visit with her...and yes, she has a cute little personality just like her mama!

It is really hot here in the Wichita Ks. area. Today my hubby and I went out and it was 104 I think. It gives me a headache and that's no fun. I usually stay inside unless I HAVE to get out.

Don't work too hard washing the fence.

God Bless!
Linda

Melissa said...

I live in las Vegas. The past couple of weeks, it's been very humid for us....15-20%. Finally done with that and now just back into the mid-100's. May not sound much better, but I can live with that :) Hope it cools off soon for you. PS....Harper and her 'bow'talking was so adorable!!!

R said...

we're in dallas, with no end in sight to the >100 degree days!

deejay said...

The north is a tropical 90. Greetings from Orrville, OH! I LOVE LOVE LOVE summertime!!

Kelly M said...

Oh wow that is hot! Seattle is cooler, but not many people have a/c so it's a toasty 85 degrees in our house in the afternoon! This weather is good for our tomato plants though!

Regina and David said...

it's been in the 80's here in Guatemala and is VERY nice!

Cherrie said...

I live in a small town in Minnesota, low humidity so that helps the 84 degrees today.

The LeCroys said...

Too hot to go outside here in Northport, AL!

Beverly Wooley said...

scizeOne question "Nonny" - when your sweet daughter posts videos, like the one she did yesterday of Harper talking, just HOW MANY times do you watch it in a 24 hour period?? ROFL Too sweet - enough to melt a Nonny's heart, isn't it!

Erin said...

It is a steamy humid 91 degrees here in upstate New York! Cooler temps on the way for Friday. I am soooo looking forward to fall!
