Yes, this was me for the past seven or eight days. We’ve seen some of the hottest weather we’ve had for such a long streak, in a long time. When it’s 95 degrees, 70% humidity and a heat index of 105, it’s bloody hot! And once again, husband is on shut down for the week so we wanted to get the landscaping in the front of the house ripped out to redo and Mother Nature laughed at us and threw this heat our way. I have a huge appreciation for people who work outside in weather like this. I can’t imagine laying asphalt in this kind of heat.

So! How was your week? Weather horrible? Fourth of July celebrations? If you have pets, please tell me they didn’t get lost in the noise of the fireworks. This is the worst time of the year for lost pets. Did you have a hot week? A cool week? Camping? Swimming? Vacationing? What are your plans for the rest of the summer?

And yes, this is the Open Thread but when I host, it has one caveat. Please, no politics. We all need a happy, safe place to land from time to time and I’m hoping for a lot of you, that’s here. :)
