I’m a dry type of girl (and I’m not referring to wine, here). I come from a very dry climate– where I had to carry a lotion bottle everywhere I went and if I didn’t, my hands would dry up like prunes (mmmm, prunes) and bleed if I didn’t lather it on ten times a day. It was as necessary as eating peanut butter by the spoonful ;).
And then I moved to Michigan. (For the record, I still eat spoon pb).
The post should end there– but I’ll keep going for chatting’s sake. Basically, I don’t use lotion anymore! (Wow this is a lame post). Currently the outdoors is about 30% percent away from swimming…. my bike ride this morning was more like water skiing, but I was desperate after being cooped up almost all day yesterday, due to the heat, humidity, rain, and thunderstorms.
Speaking of yesterday… I had a dilemma (it was a big dilemma, get ready! ;)). I mean, when it’s hot you eat salad (right?) and when it’s raining, you eat soup (right?), but what do you do when it’s raining and hot and you are almost in a an ocean.
Don’t say seafood. I’m vegan. 👿
I did manage to figure it out in the end though: southern food!. Never mind that I’ve never been to the southern united states, but I figured they are hot and humid and must get rainy thunderstorms…. so I volunteered to cook dinner!
On the menu: steamed collards greens, stove top baked beans, mashed sweet potatoes (with tomato), and corn pancake things– I drenched mine in molasses! I really love molasses.…. I kept re-applying it every other bite!
After dinner the heat (but not the humidity) had ebbed enough to go to the park with my sister. We found a cool wooden play park! And there’s nothing like leaving the house to make you thankful for air conditioning.
While we wade (literally) out this wet heat wave, I will continue to wear my new (and by new I mean yard sale) sleeping shorts:
What is the weather like where you are? (Wow, what a boring thing to talk about). But seriously people, global warming is really messing with us! I have been checking the weather for my hometown, and they are still having 60 degree weather.
