Dog days of summer

I don't know how the weather is in you neck of the woods, but it has been scorching hot here the past couple of days. In the 100's. Of course now would be the perfect time for our AC to go on the fritz. Not only is it not blowing cold air, it is also blowing warm air. Keeping our house a nice steady 88 degrees. So we just turned the whole thing off.

Awesome. Thanks for that.

So in short we have a series of about 4000 fans set in strategic spots around the house.

Luckily we have the pool out back. That turned into the best investment ever.Although with it being so hot over several days, even the water is at 90 degrees. I have to stick the hose in to try to cool it off. Something I really didn't think I would do.

But with all this playing in the water it sure gets everyone good and pooped at the end of the day. Sunshine laid herself down here on the deck and took a little siesta with Libby. I love lazy days like this. It's my get out of work card. It's just too darn hot to do anything other than laze about. My house looks like a bomb went off. There is also a permanent wet trail in the carpet from the back door (where the pool is) to the downstairs potty. It never really seems to dry out.

Luckily that carpet is on it's way out, so I don't have to worry about keeping it decent. Like I ever really did? That carpet has been peed on, barfed on and pooped on just about every inch, by just about every living being in the house. It is time for it to go. Look out we come!

Oh man! Our A/C just went out this morning. I woke up and the house was at 86. I was not happy! We are just renting right now, so I got on our landlord's case ASAP to get it fixed. I don't know how you do it. MAN! I only had to be in 100+ degree weather for 12 hours with no A/C. We wore soaking wet clothes and ran fans on ourselves.

Yeah luckily it is starting to cool off a little. Maybe even some rain tonight!

You can tell when someone is a NW native when the thought of rain sounds wonderful :)

Yes we have a 9 year old beagle named Libby. She was our "trial run" for kids. Although she's now low man on the totem pole as far as attention goes these days :)
