The heat is on......

Well, I hate to complain since the bulk of the US has had to deal with the heat most of the summer. But, I'm a So Cal gal and thats what we do. OK, last month my SDG&E bill was nearly 300 bucks. Now, that is without this current heat wave which is to last at least thru next week. So, hmmm what will it be next month. 400 bucks. OMG... but what do you do. It is triple digit and sucks.

Walking has taken every ounce of will-power to do. It is really really hot, but the parking structure has helped. But the drinking of Iced Tea, water and crystal light has been a breeze.

Now, we dont run the AC until about 2pm. You see my darling son is home, college summer break. Apparently he has been trying to get a job all summer. Now, dont crucify me because I have my doubts about that. Now, I love my son dearly he is my heart and soul as is my daughter. But, the boy stays up til 3am and sleeps til 2pm. Now exactly when the (f-bomb) is he looking. He goes back to school in about a weeks time so hells bells I think the job opportunity has slipped by us.

Labor day, the men in the house are going hunting. Apparently it is opening day. They go to this hell hole, smelly-ass town called El Centro. Now, you truly can smell this town miles away before you even get there. It is a farming town and in the midst of the desert. It is usually unbearably hot and miserable. But, the good thing is I will have the entire Labor day holiday with the house to myself (and the dogs). Now, the guys usually hunt for Dove. To be honest, Dove is not a delicacy and is about the size of my cockatiels. What a waste of time. I wont even eat them. They are usually full of shot and you have all these dang tiny pellets in them. Ugh awful....Oh well, I will enjoy the peace and quiet.

lol El Centro for hunting? In the middle of the desert? I lived south of there in Yuma, AZ and they had dove hunting there and it was a big deal. Can you believe the poor little birds are no more than 3 bites...it is like hunting for chicken legs...

Our electric bill was $396.00 this month too. For Minnesota it's been a hot summer too and oh so wet and humid (my part of MN, other parts are so dry).
Thank goodness for A/C even if it means the higher bills. For us it's already starting to cool down, 50-60 in the am but 80-90 but lunch time and back to 60 by supper time.
Take care Gracie. Blessings!!

Dang that heat!! Our electricity bill has been way high as well! So glad to have Central air in the house though. Good job getting out and walking even in the heat and drinking your liquids! Rock on!!

HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT and MORE HOT! And I'm not even inland like you are but it is still HOT. LOL with your son and his sleeping pattern; son does the same except when he has to get up to go to work, but he is actually getting better; still going to sleep late but waking up before noon on days off :)

Hunting dove, interesting! In El Centro of all places! Sounds like a fun weekend for them (and a restful one for you :)

keep exercising and hydrating as you can in this heat; one day it will pass, even if it is months down the line.........

and don't forget to flex :)
