Today will be day 41 straight, the record of 42 was set back in 1980, Saturday will break the record if it makes it. There is a front hovering and stalling out in Oklahoma that MAY give us some clouds (RAIN WE HOPE) that could drop our temps to 99 and not break the records. We can only hope. So far we are at 48 days this summer of over 100, but the record there was again set in 1980 at 69 total days. Certainly hope we do not break those records. Water rationing is getting serious around here now, my grass is totally dormant and so brown, the only watering I do is soaking around the foundation of the house and my potted plants that are about to burn to a crisp. :) We are having rolling blackouts of the electricity in the high peaks of the day still and still under an excessive heat warning. The humidity thank goodness is staying around 25%. But then, I am staying inside in the hottest part of the day anyway....and just scrapping away. Here are a few of what I have done in the last couple of days, lots of birthdays to celebrate. 3 of them tomorrow!! So happy birthday Oreo and to my niece Amy and a rememberance of what would have been my brother's 53rd birthday! The 10th was my friend Theresa's birthday (she now lives in OH) the grandma page is my high school chum, Libby's 5 month old grandbaby, one of my tired sister and one for coffee drinking Ms Carol and the others are my great nieces. Hope all of you have a terrific weekend, pray for rain and relief for us and make lots of memories to share! Chat with y'all more later on! Luv, Mat
