It's Hotter Than....(fill in the blank)

We haven't left the house in three days (mostly), due to the fact that it's been around 90 degrees . We've been deeply ensconsed within the fabulous air-conditioning, getting high off the fumes-just kidding.

The air is only in the bedroom, though, so The Girl has been running around in her diaper when we are not in the room. I've been trying to fill the day with activities to keep The Girl busy: reading books, Legos, COLORS (as she calls them)-crayons, coloring books, markers, notebooks to fill with Colors) and yes, movies.

Hey-I'm not going outdoors unless I absolutely have to. Even then, it's most likely to be when the sun has gone down.

One such occurrence came up, in the 'absolutely' department: Yesterday, I had to go to the grocery store. But that was it. We walk everywhere, so by the time we got halfway to the store (only a block and a half, if that) I had already abandoned the thought of a double iced Latte, however tasty it seemed.

We needed to get back to the Ice Cave, a.k.a. The House, pronto.

And you know, it's probably only going to get worse-the way global warming is going, among other things.
The maple sugaring buisness in Vermont has been ever so slowly moving North these past years, into Canada.

All I have to say is, it better rain soon.

Hey-what do you know, it did rain the next day, but this was in no way meant as any sort of incantation, not consciously, anyway. :)
