If you’ve read my blog for at least a few years, you know that summer and I don’t mix well. I wilt from the heat and humidity and have struggled with seasonal affective disorder even in the summer. But not this summer.
We are currently clearly on track to have the coolest July on record. Yes, in the 120 years since they have been keeping records here in Grand Rapids, this will be the coolest July. Our high today is to be 79 and then the next four days the highs will be 69, 68, 73, and 77. We’ve already set one record and tied another for the lowest high temperature for two different days.
I can’t even find the words to express how much I appreciate this weather. We’ve hardly had to run the air conditioner the past few weeks. I’m sitting here on July 16 in front of two open windows with a soft, cool breeze blowing on me. Heaven on earth.
In the not so exciting department, I’ve headed back to physical therapy. I’m not nearly as bad as I was, but still having some different problems. Hopefully this round will take care of all the things that have been bothering me.
Caroline is finally getting those wretched two year molars in. It has really dragged her down, the poor thing. Her antidote? Reclining on the big bear chair my parents got her from Land’s End a couple Christmases ago and watching “Mr. Darcy” as she calls it. What do you do with a two and a half year old who begs to watch Pride and Prejudice? She’s mostly fascinated with the dancing so I think we’ve had the first disc in a lot more than the second. It is hilarious to watch her watch it because she is so into it.
I’ve been updating my learning blog again if that interests you. I had let that go a bit while I was down physically, but I’ve been doing some fun things with Caroline and have started catching up on the posting.
