Okay I'm Ready for Fall

Okay, it's 89°.  I am roasting.  How ever am I going to make it through this summer?  Looking ahead to this day, my sweet husband got the swamp cooler ready to go last week.  However, we never did turn it on and catch the dust that blows out of the vent the first time it's turned on each spring.  That is a tricky feat, with three of us each under a ceiling vent, trying to catch a heavy mist of fine desert dust with a wet towel.  I am sure we will get that accomplished just as soon as the man of the house gets home and sees how blazing hot it is in here.  I don't even have the oven turned on yet.  Whose dumb idea was it, anyway, to have pizza for supper tonight??

I'm praying for grace already (and a "cool" summer here), and I am NOT going to complain.  Anymore.  Ahem. 

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee:
my soul thirsteth for thee,
my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land,
where no water is;

To see thy power and thy glory,
so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,
my lips shall praise thee.

Thus will I bless thee while I live:
I will lift up my hands in thy name.

Psalm 63:1-4

I'm drinking at the springs of living water.


  1. ROFL - and I was excited that the kids (finally) didn't have to wear their parkas to walk to piano lessons today!

    It's amazing we live in the same country - isn't it?

  2. I am right there with ya! We are about to turn our swamp cooler on too! sigh...

  3. 89!!! Bless your overcooked hearts! Wow, I just can't imagine. we won't see those kind of consistent temps until May probably, meanwhile we have a cold-front that is supposed to move in this evening and bring our daytime temps back into the sixties.

    Stay cool!

    Blessings, Julie

  4. Oh how I long for 89! We will not see that until June - maybe. We are up to 41 rignt how and still have snow on the ground. (but the ground under the spetic tank just showed up!) I feel for you it will be a long season for you. Hang in there. Lynn Marie.

  5. Oh my poor cooking friends, but ya know, I have a hard time relating. You know we won't be feeling that until mid-July or so and then I'm loving it (I'll never complain about the heat); now the humidity and mosquitoes - that's another matter.

    Our snow is 99% gone - we just have a little bit by the front door (shaded by the north facing porch) and a tad in one of our lower pastures. Looking for a high today of 48.

  6. Poor cooking people... I just can't believe the good "fortune" you have to already have summer!! =) Expecting a possible high of 58*... or that's what we have had this week...
