Bikers on Parade

Hot Time In The Old Town

This time of year in Texas it does feel like we live on the face of the sun. Or as one of the DJs on my favorite radio station said this morning, something to the effect of, "Cool Texas breeze, 75 degrees, then the sun comes up and we're screwed"! UGH, I do hate the heat. In spite of it, I did have a pretty great week-end with the hubster. This was the week-end of the Republic of Texas rally, and we love to see/hear the bikers roll into town. A lot of festivities going on and a lot of beautiful bikes to look at. There is not a lot that will get me out of the house when we have triple digits, but the combo of the ROT rally, and having a 50% coupon at the craft store. Woo Hoo.

Adjusting to Impending Summer

I'm hot, I'm tired, I'm cranky and depressed! There, that is my usual state around this time of year. Sounds pleasant doesn't it? When it starts to get hot, I go into a downward spiral that lasts for the entire summer. I've tried many different things to ward it off, but no amount of planning or making ready for it, stops it. It is like a creeping malaise. Once the temps start to hover in the 90's I start feeling sluggish and get the blues in a bad way. I start hibernating inside where it is air conditioned. I don't want to go to a single outdoor event, even if it is something I normally would be delighted in, I beg off because of the discomfort I know the heat will cause me. This year I was certain I could avoid it. I did different things this time. While it was still cool, I cleaned and organized the garage,and located my art supplies that I wanted ready for this time. I bought new art supplies. I started not one but two blogs. There, I said, that will keep me occupied and getting things done so summer won't seem so long. I will be productive as that always makes me feel better. Well, part of the groundwork is laid, but I feel like it was just another false start. I just can't get motivated. So here I sit, trying to come up with something sweet and happy to say, and all I want to do is take a nap! Ugh!
