I have officially abandoned all attempts to remain positive about summer and the extreme heat it brings for us desert dwellers. Pathetic I know. It's not even the end of June!
It stayed in the mid nineties all last week while we were away, and of course has been much hotter since we got back, around 105 or so, with hotter temps predicted later in the week. Meanwhile it has been cool, and rainy up in the White Mountains since we left. Typical!
I haven't felt much like going outside to tend the garden over the past few days but I will have to force myself tomorrow because there is so much that needs to be done out there. I will feel much better after I make the effort I am sure.
For the past couple of days the girls and I have been hiding inside during the hottest part of the day, while I feel guilty about the AC running almost constantly. It's only going to get worse too. Gosh, aren't I a little ray of sunshine this evening!
One small comfort for me is that the dew point is on the rise which is a sign that the monsoons are on their way. While it is usually oppressively hot and humid during the monsoon season, We also get a welcome break in the monotony with storms that bring much needed rain. I don't mind that at all.
My poor girls, they are missing those mountains almost as much as I am.
