Love and Hate in Okieland

The weather has gone back to normal here in Okieland. 😦

I was hoping for a cool summer, like the one back when I was single when we had to build a big fire at the lake to stay warm on the 4th of July. But I don’t think that’ll be happening.


Even though the temps were mild this a.m. when I spent a few quiet moments on my deck, that bright spot in the pic is going to heat up my world. *sizzle*

We’ll be in the mid-to-high nineties today.

So, as per usual, we’ve skipped the long spring and zoomed right into summer. I wish I loved the heat. (I don’t.)

But I have friends who do. They enjoy the beams bouncing off their toasty brown skin. Love sweating out. Enjoy taking a breath of super-heated air. They attack the weeds in their yards, cut down trees and haul it all away without the hint of a whine.

(I’d need an entire wheel of cheese with the big whine I’d be doing.)

When it’s Hot, I really want to Hibernate. Hide out. Have a ton of quality TV time. But if I do that, everything I’ve worked so hard to plant will croak. And that’s just mean.

Are you a warm Summer Lover or a Heat Hater?
