Southwestern Woman

Life & Events > Retirement > Heat!!!


It is like being in the oven if you go outside here. First it was so humid you could hardly endure it and now it is just like hell fire out there. My plants are beautiful because I wat er every day and already have a few ripe grape tomatoes. I got a flyer from Robin Hill School, the one I retired from, and they are h aving a lunch get toge6her. It would be fun to go but the location is in heavy traffic and I won't venture there. My closest friends there both died of cancer. That is one of the penalties attached to being in one's nineties. You outlive your friends and much loved family members. Jose and I walk every morning before it gets hot. He is half pomeranian so he is very furry and can't take much heat. He loves to walk with other dogs but we go too early for them. Ted and I should be grateful for relatively good health. I have afib and we are both down in our backs. I have the twins sor lawn mowing and yesterday they showed up with a stand up mower. It looks wierd amd I can't help but wonder what the advantages are. Be well!!!

The man who mows my lawn used to use a tractor mower, now uses a standup kind. Probably costs a lot less, for those young twins. I notice it is better for my lawn and its tires don’t sink in like the tractor's did.

I had several friends that were as close as sisters and I really miss them.
Both of my neighbors who lived across the road from me passed away. I am in touch with their children and that helps.

Oh, and what is a stand up mower? Is that like walk-behind instead of riding?

Yes, you ride aroun on it standing up. I don't see the advantage. These twins are getting rich over their lawn mowing business and they are only seventeen.

Looks like the heat took a dive after it hit Jon in Ohio. it was 91 here today, but not that humid, I guess. Spent an hour with a dental hygienist in a non-air conditioned cubical and survived. Donna doesn't like waiting rooms (just as well without ac) so she stayed in the car and went to a near by park. Looks like I should blog. Any chance somebody would take you to that event if you asked? Let me put it another way. I think somebody would pick you up if you said you want to go. At least people around here are like that. People post on our local fb page and somebody usually comes through for them..

We were all united in hate for the principal at that school so we bonded when she got fired. I know I could get a ride but it is hard to put forth the effort to dress and go.

Oh my I am not a fan of the heat!!! Im glad you are doing well, I can only imagine how hard it is to be one of the last surviving of your friends, but I'm happy you have Ted.
Stay well!!!!
