Oh my goodness...is it ever HOT!! It is 108 in Brea at 2:00 which means it hasn't even peeked out yet...sigh. I am nice and comfy here in my house which I keep at around 78, so guess I should not complain as I know not everyone has air conditioning. And to answer your question Lois, no, we don't have to run the air all the time in California. At least I don't. And those near the beach usually don't even have it. At my old house (where the temps were DEFINITELY hotter ~ we lived way inland) I ran my air conditioning when it reached about 95 degrees (or more of course) outside which was a great part of the summer. BUT! even though I had a MUCH bigger house I didn't have to run it as much. I set the air at around 75 or so and it didn't have to run much to keep it there. It was because the house was well insulated and we had energy saving windows, and a fairly new energy saving air conditioner. Though my electric bill was still scary the months of August and September, I seldom ran it in June, or July. But in this house even though it doesn't get quite as hot ( now we are about midway inland) here I run it MUCH MUCH more. If it is 85 degrees outside (which is really not bad in my book) it is 83 inside which is WAY too hot for indoors. So now I run it in June, July, August and September, and even occasionally some in October. By far the worse months out here are August and September. So we are almost through the worse of it.....right? I certainly hope so. Have I just written a WHOLE big paragraph on heat? haha.... I am just so over it. I can't wait for a Fall feel.
On Tues. mom and I headed down to Newport (always cooler there, haha) to have our hair done. I decided I wanted to change it up some. I get in those moods more often then you might think. I have been wanting to cut my hair off for a while now. I just felt like it just sort of "hung there" you know? And yet I don't want to mess with my hair too much. Nothing "fiddly" in other words, haha. Soo Jessie lightened up a bit more, and cut it off. I had Jessie take some pictures of it as Melody was anxious to see what I had done, so I can share with you what she sent her...I think I am really going to like it...I just wish I could do it as well as she does. How grateful I am to have a talented niece to do my hair. If it weren't for her (and her "family" rates) I am not sure what I'd be doing with these grey locks, haha.
|I REALIZE OF COURSE I HAVE A "DUMB" LOOK ON MY FACE, HAHA, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA. HOW I WISH I COULD GET IT AS SMOOTH AS SHE DOES, BUT SO FAR I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO. SHE NO DOUBT USES BETTER PRODUCTS...OH WELL|
Women's Bible study group yesterday was soo good. I am really grateful that it has worked out for mom and I to be able to go. I know it is a long drive and somewhat of a push for her, but she is a trooper and has done well with it. James took both of us out to lunch yesterday to a Greek restaurant where we all had a chicken salad, that honestly may have been the best salad I have ever had. It was just delicious! We both really enjoyed ourselves.
Little Jeffie will be here soon as he is going to spend the night with Grandma and Grandpa so that we can all attend JD's 6th birthday party tomorrow. Good thing it is a pool party, as I think it is suppose to be another scorcher. I honestly can't believe this little guy is already 6! I am looking forward to the day.
Hope you all have a wonderful week-end, and you fellow California bloggers, hope we all don't melt!
