Some Like It HOT!

I'm one of them. Today was pure heaven for me. It was hot. HOT. HOT! I tell you!

That's one thing about living on the central coast of California. It just doesn't get hot here. It hovers in the 60s and 70s from about march through October. Then it hovers in the 50s and 60s. So, when I got up this morning and took Little Monster to the park, and it was hot enough to make me sweat on the two-block walk, we came home. And got out the wading pool. I drowned the kid in sunblock, and then let him run around the front yard in his rash guard and swim diaper. He got in the water, played, splashed, got out (wearing only one shoe most of the day), drove in his car, climbed in my lap sopping wet, got back in the water, splashed, got out, drove in his car, climbed in my lap sopping wet, ran around like a crazy boy, saying 'bye bye' repeatedly to anyone within sight until they either left his sight, or said 'bye-bye' back.

It was a beautiful day. I FINISHED! A! BOOK! soaked my feet in the wading pool and let my arms get blissfully sunburned...

We'll probably get one to two more days of this before it goes back into the sixties again, and I am going to soak. it. up. Little Monster is going to think I'm nuts. What's on the agenda for tomorrow? Running through the sprinkler, freeze-pops for snack, and no schedules. Heat. Sun. Fun.

Maybe getting orders in Hawaii wouldn't be so awful after all.

It's cold here, but I guess from your point of view, I get 2-3 blissful months of sweltering heat this summer, if it is fairly normal. (Sweltering being anything over 85 to me...) Bliss that is not.

may I ask what exactly a rash guard is? LOL, you would probably want to come to Alabama and slap if I told you it usually gets up in the high 80's now pretty much everyday...oops I just did :D you're more than welcome to bring Little Monster and Not the Momma over here LOL, Anna would love a playmate! Although I'm sure Hawaii is MUCH nicer than Alabama.
