My "whine moment today". What's yours?

I'm tired of cooking/preparing 3 meals a day. It's just the two of us but boy oh boy can that woman eat!! She stays slimish, I get fattish. It's bad enough I do everything here much less start making her one thing and me the other. At times I feel guilty when I buy her fast food cuz of the nutritional value....not to mention I eat it too.

Sue, I know actually how you feel. Like this morning it is a wonderfully cool 60 something degrees, windows are open to let in the fresh air, and I had plans to go out to weed the yard so the landscaper can place down mulch. With all the rain we have had over the months, the weeds are totally out of control.

Well, I stared out the back door and finally had to convince myself I just can no longer do the weeding. I would fizzle out after 15 minutes, and it would only makes me upset because I can still remember when being out in the yard for 8 hours was easy. It's like what in the world happened to me. Yep, age decline hit.

I also had cut back on my parents every 3 month visits to their primary doctor. The stress of getting them into the car so I could make the appointment was weighing on me. No need to go every 3 months for the primary doctor, 4 months is enough. There were enough other appointments, like cardiologist, dermatologist, urologist, oncologist, ophthalmologist, audiologist, podiatrist, gyn, etc.

Dry heat is easier to cope with than high humidity with heat. Add the allergies to it and it becomes oppressive in the Midwest. I know people in Arizona do not leave anything in the car during summer...putting on sunglasses will burn your face.

I don't understand illegal fireworks....yet they have places that sell them if the people promise to "take them out of state". Of course they blow them off here. How is breaking the law being patriotic? And each year injuries occur. Pets get scared. With dry conditions it is even scarier, and many places this year opted to cancel displays because of fire danger. I saw something on the news where lighted drones were used to create interesting pictures in the sky and the drones can be reused and are not a danger.

Ugh, I can't imagine MsMadge. I know that people around the world live in some pretty inhospitable places but I don't know how they cope... I hope you have A/C at work?

Thankfully, car is working fine, but SoCal set new heat records today, not just for July but any month 

Turned the hose on the roof when I got home and steam came off
Radiant heat is pouring down walls inside 

Triple digit heat is here til Monday

Gusts created by pockets that form as a result of nearby storms. Evidently quite rare. The temp went up that 15 degrees in a couple of minutes. Very strange I had never heard of them either.

And now fireworks again tonight. Very loud, very bright dogs in area are going nuts. They must be illegal, called the sheriff.

Glad, I've never heard of heat burst winds. Are they gusts with higher temperatures than the surrounding air? Or gusts created by pockets of heat that surge and take out trees?

Ms. Madge, are you stuck someplace and can't go home b/c the car's so hot? Is the car's A/C working?
