It's been really hot here the past few days. The only cool place has been along the river, so I've walked down there a couple of times to let Lucie swim and cool off a bit. I promised her a walk to the river yesterday afternoon, but the intense heat kept us inside. She's found the coolest place in the house...lying inside the downstairs closet! Up until last night, I've been able to close/open shutters and windows and use the ceiling fan to keep the temperature in my upstairs bedroom bearable. I gave up last night, though, and made a bed on the floor of the living room instead! Slept well, and this morning we've had a bit of a reprieve...it's cool and cloudy.
I'm not going to complain about the heat, though. Laury says it's been 106 degrees at her folks in St. Louis!
