The 100th post that was

Oh my gosh, my last post was my 100th! How did that happen? How did I not notice it?

Ah, well. There's been a lot going on, not the least of which is the process of dragging the body around in this heat.

Even the pool is hot. I discovered that when I use the hose and automatic fill device to keep the pool level from dropping too far from evaporation, it adds HOT water. Hmmm.

No mystery, really. The hose remains full of water, and bakes in the sun, and--voila!--instant hot water for your pool!

Moreover, when I exercise in a pool with the water temp at 97 degrees, and the air temp at 96 it doesn't make me feel very good.

On top of that, today I think I had fifty or sixty emails from business associates about a meeting we'd scheduled. All but two of them were replies to some email of mine or another, even if the subject was slightly different. Hard to sort through that later.

But thank heaven I did reschedule and so tomorrow I should be able to breathe and fan and blot my face with cool cloths and read material for the meeting (all this is with the AC going). And maybe there will not be one contentious email message all day long.

One can hope.

I shudder at the very thought of such temperatures! Give me grey skies anyday...

It has been a very cool, rainy day here today Bdogs - I am not sure I could tolerate your temperatures though.

Hi - you ask what made me leave the big city for the country - I was born and brought up in the deepest countryside, married and trained to be a teacher, and moved into inner city teaching (special needs and English as a second language), but always longed to get back into the countryside - spent all my spare time there anyway. I miss theatre, concerts, art galleries etc. but there is no substitute for wild flowers, birds, green fields and the open space.

I feel the same way, Weaver. Fortunately for us, this little rural community has a wonderful music venue in Festival Hill at Round Top, a chamber music festival fifteen miles away in May; and art galleries and restaurants in the little town. I like all these, but I need the flowers and trees and birds and open countryside.

I heard some people were putting ice into their pools in an effort to cool the water down. That would take a LOT of ice!
