The heat is here...

After an unseasonably cool spring, it looks like we finally got our summer heat here in North Carolina. And that's probably a good thing, since in just weeks, I'll be in Texas... just in time for the dog days of summer.  I guess I better get used to really hot weather.

I heard the weather might cool down before the end of the week... but I'm not holding my breath.  And to think a month ago, I was on SeaDream wrapped up in multiple towels after using the hot tub.  How quickly things change!

I tell you what else we have here in North Carolina... disgusting ticks.  And the sneaky little bastards find the most obscure nooks and crannies to hide in.  I found one between my dog Arran's toes.  It had  become engorged, despite my diligent use of flea and tick preventative.  Under the engorged tick, there was another tick that hadn't latched on yet.  Yeccch!

My Texas based Facebook friends remind me that once we move to San Antonio, I'll be dealing with scorpions and snakes, too.  I think I'll be glad to just get this move behind me.
