Elliott's Busy Day.

Look what I saw on the inside of our outdoor shade this morning, hiding from the early sun.

It seemed reasonable to nap after that excitement.

I'll probably get up for dinner.

Inquiring Minds Want To Know.

So when is the last day of summer? I'm done with this already.

Ivan's Hot Weather Advice.

Drink plenty of water, do busy stuff early in the day, limit activity after that and find a cool place to nap.

I'm Melting. Melting!

Oh, what a world! What a world!

The Heat Is On.

We might hit a million degrees this weekend and then again next week. Thank cod we don't have to go out for anything!

I think we're pretty well prepared to stay cool. That exterior shade we got for our balcony door really helps deflect the heat of the sun. Blinds and curtains are drawn whenever necessary. And we don't mind the diminished Bird TV reception with all this — after all, we'd much rather be comfortable than entertained.

We know we're not the only ones in the oven but you know we have to complain about it.

Whose Couch Is It, Anyway?

Find another place to sit, Mom. Can't you see I've already claimed this spot?

I think I'd like a nice tuna salad for dinner.

Why Is This Boy Smiling?

We finally have some cooling action! Last week our HVAC guys were slammed with the sudden hot weather, so we had to wait and wait and boil and boil before they could schedule our cooler switchover. For a week it was Mom's House of Fans here — better than nothing, but almost too noisy to nap with the racket. We're doubly glad we can now chill!

Might As Well Nap.

No point watching for hummingbirds, at least this week — they're all dining at the many Mimosa Tree restaurants that have opened in the area. This morning I was amused by a road runner trying to do something with a stick, but that was good for only about a minute of entertainment. So what else is there to do but snooze until Bird TV improves?
