It is still hot, but one of our neighbors told us we have not seen anything yet. He said when they arrived here last November in was 112 degrees! He said to expect the 90’s by end of March. Well, our thermometer hit 91 degrees today. I know you hear this all the time, but the low humidity does make it more tolerable. We still have not turned on the air, but we have all the fans running.
We did make it to the downtown Farmer’s Market yesterday morning. You may recall last time we went there on the wrong day. We got there around 11am and the place was a hopping! Back in Indiana, our Farmer’s Market is mostly fruits and veggies with a few booths selling homemade pies, breads, jams, etc. This Farmer’s Market only had two venders selling produce. There was a lot of very nice jewelry, sun glasses, yard ornaments, and food venders. We bought what we wanted from the produce venders and than decided to try some burritos from one of the food stands. It was steak, onions, and peppers and it was so good----up until the last bite----then WOW! It was hot, like burn your month is on fire hot! I had a drink, but just couldn’t get the fire put out. I finally was forced to have a double Choc Chip Chunk Ice cream cone. Whew! That hit the spot. Don’t know what it was that I ate in that last bite, but sure hope I never eat it again.
Today we stayed home all day. We took the dogs out to the sand lot for awhile, but the sand was ‘hot’ on their little foot pads and they didn’t want to play long. I did manage to take a walk around the park just to get some much needed exercise. It is about 3/4 mile. I know I need to do more, but it is a start. There is a small pool here and with the temperatures rising I may have to check that out in the near future.
The temps started cooling down after supper (6pm) and we followed our usual routine of television and then off to bed around 10pm.
