This is what 30 degrees looks like...

It's hot, hot, hot here! +30 hot! Which means I am wilting like a sad flower, my clothes are sticky and clingy and all I could think about all day was slipping into a t-shirt and shorts and getting my hair off my neck.  That's why no outfit post for you today...

But I'm not complaining, I'm actually daydreaming of the upcoming long weekend. I took Monday off so it's going to be four sweet days of down time. We're getting our Gimli condo back from the renters and there are some chores that need to be done. But that doesn't mean we're not going to go boating and sunbathing and swimming in the lake - yipee!

Also on my weekend list to stay cool:
-reading Mercy by Jodi Picoult
-playing with Gus in the cool grass
-taking my first full dip in the water  (first time is always the toughest!!)
-maybe sneaking in a little 'Lenore road trip' to Grand Forks on Friday...yes, I'm addicted now!

How's things where you are?  Are you savouring summer's scorching days?

What's your favourite way to beat the heat friends?


  1. It's a scorcher outside indeed ;) Usually my curls would be frizzing and limping, but they're actually super springy today! Hehe...spent the night on a patio eating italian food and sipping a glass of wine.

    Happy Long Weekend to you!!!

  2. Awww, it is 10 degrees here :(

    Enjoy your weekend, it sounds lovely!

  3. ooh let me know what you think of mecy- i thought it was incredible!

  4. It's been around 90 degrees here (Fahrenheit) so yeaaah, I've been melting. Pools help stay cool. :) Your weekend sounds fun!

  5. I don't deal well with heat at all...your hair looks pretty cute though :)

  6. You are so LUCKY - it is miserable here in Ireland; rain, wind and cold! Oh to see a little bit of sunshine, even for ONE DAY ewould be amazing! I am as pale as a snowman!

  7. Summer ended a month ago for us. We have the wet season...meaning it's stormy most of the time. A bit damp but we still get the sunshine. YOu should hit the beach :)
