Heating Up

If we were having coffee, I would tell you the temperatures are going to be in the triple digits until Friday. Hot weather for June even here in the Coachella Valley. We are maintaining our cool with the AC and my husband has the fans going all over the house. It puts a crimp in my walking goals. I have been walking at least 30 minutes a day. Have to see if I can get up real early to walk before the heat sets in.

We’ve had a couple more visits from the roadrunners. I spotted one hopping up the branches of the grapefruit tree. I don’t think they like grapefruit but are probably using the branches like a ladder up to the back wall.

I’ve been doing the Spelling Bee in the daily newsletter from the New York Times. You have to see how many words you can make out of 7 letters. The words have to be at least 4 letters in length. I knew the word zigzag, but did you know you that ‘zigged’ and ‘zagged’ are words all by themselves?

The roadrunner zigged and zagged to avoid detection by a couple of big ravens.

    I’m glad the road runners are agile. We’re going into the upper 90s on Tuesday here on the Carolina Coast. Not much going outside. Thankful for AC. Stay cool anyway.

      Definitely keeping cool as much as possible. It wasn’t bad this morning with a slight breeze, but by the mid-afternoon the breeze was hot too. Hope you stay cool down there. I think you might get more humidity than we do.
