I say this every year, but I think this is the hottest I have ever been in my entire life! I can’t believe the searing heat wave that has swept through this nation. It has been over 100 degrees for several days now. Over this past weekend the Zany family decided to load up the car and try to escape the heat by going to visit Papa Z’s family in
The family got up early, went on a long walk, then headed to the beach. Even though
Wacky Zacky put on a brave face for this picture. He still has not made up his mind if he enjoys the beach. For him the waves seem scary and the sand is yucky. As long as Papa Z or I held him he tolerated it.
Zany Janie on the other hand is a true blue beach bum! She had a blast at the beach. I am happy to say she took the day off of being the family sand taster.
It was a fun trip and despite the humidity it was much cooler than in our neck of the woods. Once home, we heard on the news that there was a heat advisory for Tuesday-Sunday. I can't even imagine what that means when we've been melting the past few weeks!
Zany thought of the day: A Western way of thinking is to eat hot dishes in the summer and cold dishes in the winter to promote good health. For me, I can't think of anything I'd rather avoid than a hot steaming bowl of soup when it's over 100 degrees out and a chilly popsicle when it's below zero!
