Hi, Porch Peeps,

Guess yesterday was the last "morning coffee on the porch" day for me for a while. I was all ready, but when I opened the door today and got hit with a blast of "sauna," I retreated back inside.

And this is only the begining of one of the longest heat waves in years for this area. UGH!

91 right now at 1:00, and the "feels like" temp is 100. They are predicting "fees like" temps up to 120 as the week goes into the weekend with Saturday being the worst day. YIKES!

Sooooo glad I don't have the pool to worry about. The sun and heat are killers on the chlorine and a pool can turn green in an hour! Patting myself on the back for making that decision this year.

So you all hang in there and take it easy. HYDRATE!!!!! N.We're havin' a heat wave.jpgWe're havin' a heat wave!

@LaDolceVita 

 

Results from last batch of tests, nah not what thought. And still might be -wtf.

 

More tests scheduled, another 6-8 weeks of waiting on results.

 

I’ll be throwing a string of expletives over in the corner for awhile.

@Frozenoem  Your feet are certainly dressed for a long hard day.  Your day?  At the doctor perhaps?

 

Miserably hot here I must say.  Three days coming about 90 degrees for high then back to mid to high 80s.   Could be worse.  46 more days Woman Sad.

Good morning everyone on the Front Porch on this Tuesday morning in July 2019.

We are looking at temps at around 90* and around 70% humidity for a while.

 

We have been away for several days and the WIFI did not work well with my tablet. We were at a conference for china collectors. Whether you are a collector, dealer, student, or historian ... if you have an interest in any of the now-collectible wares that were produced by the Homer Laughlin China Company, the Homer Laughlin China Collectors Association is for you! Formed in the summer of 1998 as an all-volunteer, member-operated organization, HLCCAis dedicated to providing a serious educational forum and communication tool for all those who are interested in the important contribution that HLC has made to American culture, from 1873 to the present. HLCCA is a non-profit organization, with IRS Section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Our membership is drawn primarily from the United States and Canada, but we welcome international members as well. We conduct an annual Conference during which we offer seminars, workshops, multi-media presentations, auctions, exhibits, and other opportunities to share and exchange information about HLC products. The Dish, the official publication of HLCCA, is a quarterly magazine that contains a wealth of information on topics relevant to anyone interested in HLCCA.

We purchased several item, received some items as prizes and Homer Laughlin provided several gifts for the banquet dinner.

65* and comfy for the moment, here comes the humidity and 80’s starting tonight.

 

Chelli seems aware that this may be my day, for answers she’s beneath my chair. She won’t be going to the asphalt jungle.👍

Image result for beautiful coffee sayings

Yassssss, Porch Peeps!

That's me this morning.  Just trying to get it together after a long day of yardwork yesterday and a long shift at work last night (sixteen hours).  Feelin' kinda droopy and just a little bit poopy.  So I'm counting on coffee (being the elixir to solve all things) to help get ME back in order.  Slurp.

SLURP, SLURP, GULP!!!

 

I haven't been outside yet, but folks coming into work this morning tell me it is already hot and very humid outside.  Sticky.  These are the days I thank God for air conditioning!Image result for cartoon image  of someone being blown by fan

 

Anyway, I hope all is well with each and everyone one on Our Front Porch.  Stay cool as much as possible.  But don't forget to step outside to get some of that free Vitamin D!

 

Viva La Summer!!!

Lydia

Hi, All. Happy Monday!

Could be our last day of low humidity. Today is nicer than yesterday All my windows are open right now. This is such a bonus, but we are going to pay dearly later this week.

@MsStretch ...what a unique experience you had in the quarry!

I thought I said sweet and low.jpgI thought I said, "sweet and low."
