Hot Hot Heat

This morning, as Jerry was getting ready for work and as I was still lying in bed starting to wake up, he said, "You probably shouldn't run this morning; it's really hot outside." I don't have much power of language first thing in the morning, so I just muttered an "m'kay" in response.

After he left, and I got up, I checked the weather, and sure enough, at 7:30 am, it was already 87 degrees out. So, I decided that instead of running, I would take Scooter and we'd go for a long walk instead. Even for a walk, it was hot and incredibly humid, but we walked about 2 miles, and when we got back, Scooter was a toasty little Copper Top: I don't think I was quite as hot as he was, but I'm not walking in that heat with a fur coat on:
I don't know why this one, below, is a bit out of focus, but it still gives you a good look at those 19 lbs I'm hauling around out front, which makes even walking in 87 degree heat rigorous work.
After we got back, and I had drank a full bottle of water, I made myself a nice, cool strawberry smoothie to sip on while I got some of my chores around the house done (seriously, where is that house elf I ordered? even if it just emptied and filled the dishwasher, I'd be pleased -- for some reason, that's a task I hate).

So, now that I sit down again, I checked the temp and at 10 am, it's now in the low 90s. Good lord, it's like the inner circle of hell out there! Looks like I'll be spending most of my day inside with the A/C!

You look so cute with your big belly! I notice you still fit into your orange shorts.

Stay cool! That heat does not sound fun...unless you're lounging by a pool!

Its hotter there than here in the middle of the desert!

I love being able to see little snippets of your home in your photo backgrounds. It's really cute!

It's funny that a short run is three miles, but a long walk is two miles.

MCM Mama said...

Oy! That's hot! I thought it was bad up here.

You look awesome! Oh, and about that cleaning elf, she'll be ready to help you in about 3 years. ;o)

Even with the 19, your still such an adorable preggo. Love the little shirt you were wearing. And I abhor emptying the dishwasher.

Super cute tee!

Go float in the pool for awhile and think of me here at work. Bleck, oh and if you find the cleaning elf, send him my way when you're done!!

You are looking great! It has been hot here too, its making me wish we had A/C...or at least another fan!

Nicole said...

You are so cute. Scooter looks good too!

TNTcoach Ken said...

Good choice to skip the run, no need to bake the kid!!!!!

Ted said...

I noticed that you are sporting the same red short as the one on the left that you did for Colfax Half and Disney Marathon. That must be your favorite short.

Have you bought Saucony kicks for Norah yet?

oh wow! look at you! 19 lbs really makes a difference ;) Glad you were able to get out for a walk. I can't believe it's so hot already!

aron said...

ohhh you look adorable :) I imagine walking around in 87+ degrees while pregnant is not a fun task.
