My voice is in and out right now and has been for the past 2-3 days. Countdown to rock show: 5 days. gak.
My internet searchings have provided the following: "Ain't sh*t you can do!"
Except: Not talk. Drink lots of water that is neither hot nor cold. pray.
let me tell you, drinking cup after cup of tepid water is making the day fly by. (what with all the many trips to the loo)
Yesterday was so,so,so warm. So deliciously warm. I told husband to fire up the grill. Happily it was a Monday, the one evening Mr.H has off of work. So Mr. and Mrs. H came by and all 5 of us spent a lovely evening in the backyard. Miss Dukes enjoyed looking at all the bugs on the ground.
This is pretty much how we spent most of our summer last year, so it was a delightful taste of things to come. Nobody wanted to go inside when we were done, least of all Miss Dukes! (She sure slept soundly though) Even spent the night with the window open- it never rained like they said it would.
Today the temperatures start their inevitable descent back, back back into the 50's. (please god, not any less then that) But at least we'll have this evening to sustain us until the warmth is here for good.
