You may have read me grousing about the temperatures on Facebook. Up until Tuesday of this week North Texas has been baking with 109, 110, 112 temps, cooling at night to the 80s. Not much cooling.
Finally, a cold front came through. The weathermen explained that we don’t have “cool” fronts even though we dropped only 10 degrees. The amazing thing is how much cooler 100 or 99 feels compared to those higher temps. We’ve been almost delirious with the change.
Most Wednesdays this summer, I’ve brought my granddaughter Sarah home with me from her mother’s Pilates studio. We hang out and play games, and then my other daughter comes with her two kids, Nelson and Lilly, and we have lake time. It was lovely yesterday. The breeze was almost continuous with the temp around 99. Nelson & Sarah with boogy boards
Giant pad something of a pain to put out and pick up, but kids love it.
Lilly is holding “Chris,” the dragon fly, on her hand as she swims out to the pad.
Afterwards, the grands requested that Mimi make popcorn. I make excellent popcorn if I do say so. My grandson has Riegert genes for sure. My father always made popcorn, and I made popcorn when the kids were growing up. Now Nelson’s mom makes popcorn, but I’ve heard they really like mine best. So what’s a Mimi to do?
Of course, I made popcorn, but I didn’t get to eat any. Nelson has a hollow leg, and he ate three bowls while the girls and my daughter only ate one. LOL I love to see how genes work in families. Guess I should clean off the counters before taking pictures. LOL
So have you gotten to see extended family this summer? Are they in town or do you have to make trips? Are you baking where you are? Love to hear from you.
