Oh, What a Relief It Is #SOL

 Today, there is relief from the hot, humid days of summer.  Topping off at 77 degrees, a good 10 to 20 degrees cooler than the last several days, the day allowed me to do some things I avoid when the heat is oppressive, and I found myself sighing in relief.  

I took advantage of every minute of the day even though there were times I wanted to crawl back into bed, and I did not feel guilty about not being outside on such a pleasant day.  It was a perfect day to get things done inside the house.  

Done list:

  • Skinny Taste chicken and broccoli casserole
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning and organizing my writing space 
  • Grocery shopping
  • Facebook Live class on back-to-school ideas
  • Book Love author Zoom
  • Grad class work
Tomorrow, it will be warmer, and I will spend the day in the shade by the pool.  The school dreams are back, and school is just around the corner.  This is when I usually feel the need to take advantage of those carefree days outside using the pool to stay cool, but today, I relished the relief of lower temps, a light breeze, and dry air.  


  1. We had lower temps today as well and I spent some time wandering outside in my gardens. It sounds like you had a very productive day!

  2. It sounds delightful! I always loved those high pressure days when they would bring relief from the heat and humidity. It sounds like you had a great day.

  3. Glad you got the day you needed! A light breeze and dry air- a winning combination!


Rain Decides to Visit #SOL

As with many areas of the country, it has been hot and humid but also very dry.  There has been little rain in my area, so the grass is brow...
