This Heat

It's been unbearably hot, but I am afraid it has not reached the hottest yet.  And the thought of this being just the beginning of summer and the following three to four months it will be hot every day...ah...I try to find comfort in the fact that I do not have to shovel snow.  But snow, I miss.  Not the shoveling part, but the part where you watch it fall and hope for a snow day to stay home and cozy up.
I was used to the heat in AZ, it's only been the last couple of years that's been bugging me.  The drastic change in temperature between inside (depend on the household or business 76-79F) and the outside 110+F.  That's almost 40F difference.  It gives me a headache.

We go out at dusk, because it's a few degrees cooler.  We stumbled upon a sunflower field right in the heart of downtown Phoenix.
Or at the Environmental Education Center in Chandler.

Or on Saturday morning, Maggie and I hiding in the shade while watching Patrick's soccer practice.

Or hiding inside making more handbags.  After selling my first one, I felt encouraged to make more.

I don't have any vacation coming up.  For now the one thing I have to look forward to is a soldiering class I signed up for at the end of June.  More heat, ha ha.  I will try to stay cool and think cool thoughts.
