Flashback to winter: Icicles hanging from the eaves, sparkling little daggers. Snow piling up in the driveway, meaning that to drive was to risk life, limb and vehicle. So... dreaming of Summer. Mid-summer, July. Couldn't wait to get in the car and drive and drive, heading into a warm and balmy vacation.
Here we are, July. Right now. Hot, I mean hot! Extended heat wave. Wind! Nope not gentle, balmy winds. Hard driving, tree downing winds.
My double coated dogs are hot. It's too hot to hike with them -- we're all getting out of condition!
A little problem cropped up. My thyroid was lowered as a result of my latest tests. I think I have less ambition, less stamina, but it's rather hard to tell under the circumstances. About a week ago, I fell in the bathtub -- just like an awful commercial -- and offended my tailbone. It was really offended. So a little less stamina, less ambition, a lot of pillows...
And oh yeah, Diabetes (thanks, MTM)... Actually my blood sugars have been good. Why, I don't know. I start the day with my absolutely essential mocha latte, followed by summer fruit, cheese, Nut-Thins and meat -- all day long. I'm not discontented with everything!
