It is SO hot! I was getting a little tired of all the rain, but now I'm sad it's gone. At least it cooled things off. Now, it's just unbearable! And, with all that rain came time off from watering. It's amazing how quickly things are drying up. Our yard and plants have been looking so sad and I've been meaning to get out and water, but it's just so hot (did I already mention that it's hot?). Anyway, I finally got out and watered yesterday evening - I figured that the kids could play some and I'd get some watering done. Ha... plans quickly changed once that water hose came out. The kids watered themselves and the plants and grass got the leftovers. I don't know who got more wet, the grass or Patti and Cal. Either way, we had fun... I even got sprayed a time or two (that happens when you put the hose in the hands of a wild 2 yr. old). The water also kept away those horrid mosquitoes! As soon as you walk outside, they swarm you like crazy!
