Oh look, it's not raining today. The skies are blue, the birds are singing and once again children on bikes ride past on their way to friend's houses to go inside and play video games. There will always be tomorrow to vacuum and do laundry. It's so beautiful outside. I think I will make myself a cup of tea and turn to chapter two of that book I borrowed from my sister four months ago.
It's another gorgeous day. The forecast for this week is sunshine and hot. Time to get out the tank top and garden gloves; there is a good hour of weed pulling to do out there. But first, I must make a gallon of ice tea and pour fruit juice into Tupperware freeziepop moulds. Ah, I love summer.
Kids, put the sprinklers on in the garden and in an hour switch it to the front lawn. After that, wash the car. It's so dusty you can write on it. By the way, who wrote "I'm too dirty for my car" on the back window? I think we need to talk about our choice of words. When it cools down, that lawn needs to be mowed too. And don't forget to put sun screen on. I'm going down to Wal-Mart to get another fan. I'll be back in an hour.
It is too hot today to do anything. I just want to sit here in front of the fan with my ice tea and maybe read a book. Laundry and vacuuming will have to wait until it cools off. Or, at least until the kids get home from swimming when there will be no clean towels or dry clothes left in the house. It's too hot to cook. I guess we'll have pizza again tonight. I'm thinking if we just let the lawn die we won't have to water it every day or mow it every four days. I don't know if I can stand another week of this heat.
Oh look, it's raining today, yeh.
