It's Like a Heat Wave; Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

Laughter, having and holding onto our sense of humor, really IS the best medicine!

Hot, Hot, Hot

Hot, Hot, Hot

Heat Wave

It is so hot.... How hot is it?

The weatherman said that a cold front was coming, but I didn't stick around to hear...the rest of the story

It was only a tease, a ploy {to get me to stick around} turned out to be a short-lived, "hallelujah and glory"

I anticipated the morning, looked out to see some movement in the trees

Opened the door to experience it and all that hit was a hotter than a pepper sprout tropical breeze

Comparable to that heat you get, on the opposite side of an a.c. window unit

That anticipation of a cold front, well, it took all of about two seconds to ruin it

Now you have to understand, where I live, a cold front means we may not hit ninety degrees

It's hard to get excited when all that meant, was hotter than a firecracker, but it would be in the form of a breeze

I wasn't in a parka; flip flops and a tank top were thrown on and I was on my way

But, the tease took a little pep out of my step, no cooler weather, not today

So enjoy your seasons, wherever you are

and don't be jealous of me from afar

While you are starting to gather firewood and do a test run of the thermostat

I'll be anticipating eighty-nine degrees and I'll be so happy with that

Living in paradise does have its rewards, swaying palms, the beach a short drive away

But, hurricanes, tourists and heat waves keep us even, so keep your judgment at bay

So, with the a.c. working three hundred and fifty of the the three hundred sixty-five days

I'll be here in my tropical paradise, engulfed in a hot, hot, hot peninsula haze

Life is all about some give and some take, we can't have heaven on earth

So, don't be sad that you aren't in Florida today, my two cents, for what it's worth...

Enjoy the fall; have some hot chocolate and grab some cozy socks and a sweater

I'll be here in the midst of the heat wave, avoiding those things like a plague, now doesn't that make you feel better

Perhaps tomorrow the "cold front" will come, perhaps that was...the rest of the story?

If that's the case tomorrow, I'll be hitting the outdoors with a great big loud, hallelujah and GLORY!

I know that you can relate Shannon.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to read it.

I hope this manages to break out a smile or two in the midst of these trying times. :)

LOL! I saw the title in the notifications and had to read it right away (even though I really don't have time). I can SO relate to this. I'm not in Florida, of course, but we experience that here in Texas as well. Cold front you say? We all get excited, but not because fall is coming and we can wear sweaters but because it means temps will be below the triple digits.

Changing it up! :)
