Heatwave

As I sit here in a darkened house with fans going to take the edge off this 100* day, I can’t help but think about how we’ll be living in New England this time next year. Crisp weather, layered clothing, apple cider, hot cocoa… waiting on my first snow.

My husband has experienced more 100* days this summer in Northern California than in his entire life in Boston. lol I tease him as he whines about the heat, unwilling to get out of the house. That’s one of those things in my toolkit for dealing with heatwaves. GET INTO A/C!! lol It’s his first summer out here.

A day of window shopping followed by dinner and a movie can save the day! Mom and I spent many a summer day doing just these things. Double features at the “show” was always a family favorite.

Kind of all over the place today. I haven’t missed my mom in a long time. I think about her, but the longing… the ache of her being gone doesn’t come often anymore. Thinking about us doing our normal stuff brought that twinge of missing the good days.

Both of us lost our mothers before we met. We joke that they’re up in heaven chit chatting and helped orchestrate us meeting. πŸ™‚ My mom would have adored my husband!!!! She always told me I’d be like my great aunts… I’d marry again later in life and have that lifelong, good marriage. I wish she’d had the chance to meet him and see how happy we are. She knows. It’s just not the same.

Errands to run and time to break the torture of this god awful hot day!! Lunch out, you say? Indeed!

Stay cool and have a lovely Wednesday.

  1. It sounds like we have a lot in common, Succulent Savage! I lost my mom in 2016 and there are still plenty of days that I think about us out running errands together or playing word games. Also, we too live in Northern California! Today is a hot one!

    1. We’re neighbors!!! πŸ˜‰ I lost my mom in March of 2014. Mom and I knit together… lots!!! Pretty much all crafting.

      The heat was outta control today. Daddy got heat sickness. 😦 Waited too long to eat and to get into the cool. He worked the graveyard last night, so couldn’t get out early before it got so hot. All better now. πŸ™‚

  2. The heat has oddly enough cooled here in Sedona. It’s like an early Fall…and rain! Very unusual, but the heat could return. Never know. I love what you said about being like your Aunt and finding love later in life…and a good marriage!! I’m feeling that too. Working my way to who already feels like my husband. You sort of know that feeling when He comes into your life, don’t you? Stay cool you two β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈ
