Staying Cool

Not much happening here. Its been 105 degrees or hotter everyday. Trying to keep things watered and stay cool is about it.
I had a bug for the past week and I am finally feeling back to normal(-:
I hurried out this morning to mow lawns and clean up. Another warm day ahead.
I Hope everyone is having a great week and staying cool as well!

I can't imagine it being that hot. When we hit 85 degrees in New England people complain. Sit back and relax with a cool drink and hopefully with the AC on. :) -Jackie

Glad you are feeling better. That trailing plant makes one think of water and of cooling off. Stay cool.

Lola said...

Glad you are feeling better. Just take it easy.
My little plant is still doing great.

I'm glad your feeling better. Just trying to keep my garden alive in all this heat. Can hardly wait for a bit cooler weather so I can be outside were I belong. lol

Your succulents look happy! What is that grey-green plant trailing over the side? It's lovely!

Ugh! Too hot there Cindee. I will send you some of our cool weather and you send us some of the hot and we will all be just right for summer. Glad you are feeling better.

Brenda said...

Your containers are so unique, Cindee! How about giving us some bigger photos of your yard spaces one of these days? Maybe you have and I missed it. But I'm anxious to put all these puzzle pieces into place in my mind so I'll know "Cindee's world!"

So glad you are feeling well again...must be aweful to feel bad in such heat...hopefully you were in the a/c most of the time anyway! YEAH!

Jacki said...

Wow, that is hot, and to be sick at the same time, that's too bad. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

PS Mista G says he is tired of the cloud and rain too now .. I think he is homesick ? haha

Hi Tina,
Thanks(-: That dicondra silver falls is a nice cool looking plant(-: I think it looks like soap bubbles in that old wash tub!

Hi Lola,
Thanks! Glad your plant is still growing!!

Hi Brighid,

Hi Hocking Hills Gardener,

Hi Brenda,
I will have to get some long shots of the yard! I got the lawn mowed this morning and everything watered. So I am ready for the heat to hit this afternoon!

Hi Julie,
It as a rotten time to be sick! Fever + the heat! Glad to be over that!

Hi Jacki,

Hi Joy,
Thanks(-: I am a terrible vitamin taker(-: Mr. Smiley is very hot and tried of life in CA. He is ready to pack up and go back to your house!

Hi Japanese Redneck,
Thanks. A lot of people have had this bug I guess. Its no fun especially in the summer!

Cindee don't try to do too much or you'll be back down again! Horrible heat you're having. I'd die for sure.

Crafty Gardener said...

You sure are getting some hot weather there. Hope you enjoyed Harry Potter, we haven't been yet.

I just noticed the temp on your sidebar is over 100 degrees, and it's 10:26 pm! Oh, my! I'm sorry to hear you were sick, but I'm glad you're feeling better.
