The Mouthy Mermaid talks About 20 Ways to get Through the Summer in Arizona

Good Morning Dear Readers,

As I am talking to ya all this morning, it’s not HOT yet, it’s 75.  I love 75, but as the week goes on it is going to get cooking, 111 by Sunday.  UGH.  But, yes it’s a dry heat!!!!  Whoever made that one up kills me.  Any way you look at it it’s HOT.  Here is my list on how to survive the HEAT in Arizona.

  1. Pretend you are a Mermaid.
  2. Go to the pool.

    New pool, new yard.
  3. Stay inside.
  4. Run your A/C so you don’t even care how much the bill is.
  5. Read a book.
  6. Take a nap.
  7. Binge watch Netflix.
  8. Don’t turn on the oven, because it’s like an oven outside.
  9. Go to the Mall, and I hate the Mall.
  10. Take an hour drive to the mountains.
  11. Drink water, drink water, drink water, drink water.
  12. Don’t watch the news, it will just make you hotter.
  13. Go to a church to meditate.

    Vacation a few years ago.
  14. Go to the grocery store.
  15. Order take out.
  16. Look on line and plan a pretend trip where it’s cool.
  17. Fool around on Facebook.
  18. Do your errands early.
  19. Don’t cook.
  20. Write a blog.

So that’s my list and I am sticking to it.  How do ya all get through the heat??????  Please share your tips with me because I feel like summer here is the most oppressive state of mind imaginable.

I do have a trip planned but not until August, I may die of heat by August.  I am looking forward to our summer Monsoons.  Can’t wait to have rain.

And, life in general.  Mermaid life is just fine, very quiet and low key and I guess that is what I need right now.  I don’t really have an answer for any of that.  I am OK and OK is OK.

 

 

Happy Tuesday,

Love, Thelma, The Mouthy Mermaid

PS  Congrats to Steve Kerr, a hometown BB player.  He is starting to remind me of Lute!!!!!!!!!
