Staying cool on the 4th, 5th and 6th

Click to see Rosie!

Rosie has the right idea; hide in the shade with your belly in the cool dirt, and watch the world go by.

For the 4th, we had family over for a picnic and to fish in the small lake behind our house. It was so hot (nearly 100 F) we were going through the iced tea, frozen lemonade push-ups, and anything cold we could think of.

We even ate our picnic indoors with the air conditioning to give everyone a chance to stabilize their body temps before going back out.  It was good food, but that's not normal! Usually the only time we would eat indoors is if it is raining or storming.

Tomorrow promises to be even hotter; I plan to stay indoors and sew (and listen to Rosie complain that I'm not letting her out in the heat).
