Oh my friends – I had the most glorious, sun-filled weekend after my whine-fest over all the rain last week and I’m still feeling HIGH AS A KITE because today is going to be sunny too. Three whole days of the nicest sunny days ever. Coolish, sunny, breezy – just about as good as it gets.
That’s exciting because you may know that Washington, DC and the ‘burbs get ridiculously humid in the summertime. “Can’t catch my breath” kind of humid. Maybe not as humid as the jungle but pretty danged close! Those are the days that I stay inside in the AC. Out here in the “country” away from the big city is where in the old days all the gentrified folk from Washington, DC would hop in their carriages and head to for a breath of fresh air and some relief from the humidity of town. That’s right – they’d ride out HERE to escape. Well the people in DC still ride out this way and further up to the mountains to escape but it’s not just from the heat – it’s from the BIG CITY PERIOD!!! We’re on a main route up to the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and the gorgeous Shenandoah Valley so when things heat up in town, everyone heads out here.
I don’t have to escape……….nope – all I have to do is stay right where I am – living the good life with Mom and Dad………..if it’s too humid I stay inside……if it’s nice enough to be outside I just go a few steps and I’m there – no car trip to the country for me………………….I’M ALREADY THERE!!!!!
Have a sun-filled Monday (or if you need rain, may you get WET today). AND – whatever you do – don’t forget tomorrow is Tuesday Teaser and we have another GUEST TEASER for you!!!! Another toughie? Probably! So make sure and be ready at 6AM EST to guess – who knows – you might be FIRST RIGHT GUESSER!
P.S. Another birthday? Yes indeed…..my pal Odin at Cat Wisdom101 is celebrating his today so stop by and wish him well!!!
