The weatherman showed the ten day forecast last night and it is supposed to be over 100 degrees for the next ten days. I really don't like the weatherman during this part of the year! Extreme heat is not my idea of a good time. I don't like going outside, dragging the hose all over trying to keep my little plants alive during this heat!
I always look at August in Oklahoma like January in Indiana where we used to live. In Indiana in January, it was so cold that you couldn't really do much of anything outside. Even going to the grocery store was a major ordeal, especially with little kids! That's kind of what it is like now in Oklahoma. My daughter and I ran out to do a few errands yesterday and all I wanted to do was run from the parking lot to the cool store and back again.
The major difference between Oklahoma in August and Indiana in January is that tonight, about seven o'clock, I'll be laying around in the pool cooling off from picking garden and watering. I'll wear my swimming suit and cover-up to do my outside chores and then jump in and float around for awhile while the sunsets. We usually have a really pretty sunset.
Can't do that in Indiana in January.......
