A Typical Summer Morning

Somewhere in Texas. After my run, and breakfast for A. and me, and a few egg scraps for Sadie, I was motivated to clean a bit and tackle a few lingering boxes of critical items junk. Since I was still in my sweaty clothes and all.

Perky Pollyanna (that would be A.) started pestering me to go outside. "Mama, it's not raining. Can I go play on my play set? Can Sadie come outside too? Mama, it's not raining, can I go outside? After I play, can I have a Popsicle? Can I go outside, plea-hu-eessse?" Just repeat that a few times and you'll get the idea.

So, A. went outside, after reminders to stay out of the muddy spots, to play on her play set. I started to vacuum. After 15 minutes this sweaty face appeared by the back doors, with a sweaty (thankfully not muddy) body attached that wanted to come back inside. Because it's hot outside. Even at 9:30 in the morning. I bought a little more time with a Popsicle (hey, it's afternoon somewhere). Then outdoor girl was done.

She's like her Mama. She has an unnatural attachment to the a/c. That's my girl.

  6. Popsicles are wonderful things. Do you remember when you were little making them in those Tupperware thingy's that had the plastic sticks. They didn't have PopIces back then. My mom used to use Dixie cups for us in the dark ages with frozen KoolAid. My favorite was ROOTBEER KoolAid. And yes, it is HOT and HUMID in Central Texas too. It's almost not worth the effort to get dressed during the day and makeup is useless.

  7. you're blessed with a child wiser than her years! she could teach mine a thing or two- he seems to have no concept of the benefits of a/c and would love nothing more than to roast outside all day! :)

  9. It was hot today! I dragged the kiddie pool out of the garage and filled it up for the boys! With all the rain we haven't used it much! All of our shoulders got a little toasted, I forgot the sunblock, I felt like such a bad Mommy! I need to start running in the morning! I am sooo out of shape, skiny but out of shape:(

  11. I love it..."It's afternoon somewhere" that's just plain funny.

    I have a serious attachment to air conditioning myself so I totally understand.
