Still Sweltering!

The forecast for tomorrow is one hundred degrees. And that's not the heat index temperature, that IS the temperature. 

The humidity now is 53 percent.  Feels like 90 percent. 

I'm housebound. I venture out several times a day to replenish the water in our bird baths which the birds appreciate. They'e hot too.  

This is the first weekend that I don't have to work, that's a relief.  Maybe I can get back on my regular rhythm of working two days a week (Mondays and Thursdays) now after months of filling in for co-workers for various reasons. 

This morning I forced myself to buy some paint.  I have to paint the baseboards in our basement media room. I should have done that BEFORE the run was laid. What can I say?  I wasn't thinking.  

I hate to paint. There is a lot of touch up painting that has to be done around here. I'm trying to talk myself into painting our main entrance door, which isn't our front door. Who uses their front door to go into their house anyway?  Not us. In fact we don't use our living room and dining room. We don't even use our little dinette area off the kitchen.  I eat at the counter and Bill eats in his Archie Bunker Chair.  

The "Beat the Peak" is from 4 PM to 7 PM today. It's 7 PM now. Time to bake that Chicken Parmesan I've been looking forward to all day.

Stay cool and have a great Saturday evening!

It is 89 today and the humidity is 20 per cent. Glenn is working on another "art quilt" and I just finished my gardening for the day. Now we are going to jump in the pool.
Your hot humid weather is on our local news lately.

20% humidity, I'll take it! We're housebound here with the heat and humidity. Walking outside is like sticking your heard in an open oven door. And the humidity is smothering. Dangerous! I hope this summer is an aberration. I couldn't live like this the rest of my life.
Always good hear from you Mike!

It is 115F but there is no humidity. All the same one stays indoors.

I really should not be telling you about the nice weather here, you have been here and have seen it is not to bad. Now instead of getting away form the cold winter you could try getting away from the summer heat and humidity. Hang in there, fall will be here soon.

115 is still HOT!

I've been checking the California weather and I noticed that it is milder than it is here in this steam bath
