My sisters having a fun holiday

I got an update from my sister today. She’s really enjoying her holiday, its really hot in the canaries, around 35 degrees c every day.
they took the kids to a zoo and a water park, go carting, and to the beach, there is a peer on the beach, the kids have been jumping off of it into the water and loving it.
Tomorrow she’ll be gone a week already. It went by so fast!
I’m glad she’s enjoying herself. Her partners sister came out there on thursday with her kids, and his other sister will be coming out on monday with her kids, and his mom and dad are there already they went at the same time as my sister and her partner.
We’d have gone too, if my mom was able to travel, but with her COPD she isnt able to fly long distances.


#whatif prompt for 7-8-2018

Today’s prompt: over at what if we all cared is…

strawberry lemonade

Temps in ireland soared again today. And I wished I had a tall glass of strawberry lemonade to sip on. Man that woulda been so nice. I love fruity drinks. And I love lemonade, and it would have cooled me down, so win win all around!


No sleep

i’m about to tear my hair out! no bloody sleep here tonight, again!
ug, ug ug!
the heat is too much, I cant stand it. I’m tired but doubt I will fall asleep.
Anyway, have to be up in less than 2 hours, so is it even worth trying?
I will just go read my book I think and try to finish it!

#whatif prompt 7.4.18 watching the weather

The prompt over at what if we all cared for today is, watching the weather.


Our weather has been super hot. I am watching the weather for today to see what the high will be. Alexa told me it would be 22 degrees c! Thats lower temps than it has been in the last 2 weeks. We need a little reprieve though from the hot hot sun!
I’m also watching to see if there is going to be any rain!
We’re in a drought now, its over 17 days since we’ve had rain! Thats almost unheard of for ireland!
I wonder if today will be the day we get a few rain showers! Who knows, but if we do I wont mind!


took a nap and my friend is visiting

c the heat was getting to me. so i took a nap. it turned in to a 2 hour nap.
i got up at 3 pm and ate my dinner. i had left some curry out of the freezer so I had that. I feel full up now.
The curry was good. I like making batches of food and freezing it, saves a lot of time and all I have to do is thaw it out when I need it.
My friend Norma is coming over in a little while. She wants a new book. She goes through books at an alarming rate. Faster than I do even.
She’ll probably stay for a few hours. I still have my fan going. Weathers super hot still.
my supervisor from my volunteer job emailed me. She said she was sorry I couldnt come in today and that they missed me. That was sweet of her. She said I could do a training session this weekend with norma so that will be good.

An awesome BBQ

we had a very nice day at my sisters. just got home a few minutes ago. we went there at around 2 PM. the BBQ was awesome. There was so much food. She had ribs, chicken wings, sausages, burgers, she made chicken wings with sweet chili sauce on them, ones with hot sauce on them, and she also made plain ones for the kids. She made her own potato salad, curried rice, and pesto pasta salad. I ate way too much. But man was it good! We sat outside with the music blaring, having drinks, well I didnt drink, but the rest of them did. I enjoyed the music though and obviously I enjoyed the food as well. We would have stayed longer than we did, but we had to get home as I had to feed nitro and let him out. Moms sister also rang her and asked her if she wanted to go to their brothers house tonight to visit, so she’s gone there now. I’m absolutely shattered, I think I’ll try to have an early night if I can. My sister did say though that we’d do it again soon. I’m happy about that. I love BBQ’S.

Record temps in ireland

today we hit a record temp of 32 degrees c. I dont have a way right now to let you my US readers know how much 32 c is in farenhite but its very very hot.
plenty of water, a fan, and I’m happy.
I am at my parents house now. I asked mom to let my bedroom window open tonight. I am much too hot to have it closed. She agreed and said I could.
Sitting here now enjoying the breeze, and trying not to melt, lol.
