It’s been hot here. High temperatures between 98 and 103 (37 – 40 celsius) are hot wherever you are, and the high humidity makes even the relatively cooler days sticky and uncomfortable. We’ve been able to get out and do things, but keeping a newborn cool and hydrated is a concern.
But Missouri, unlike Georgia, actually has a fall, and last year there was a marked down turn in temperatures by mid August. That seems doable. It’s the lazy dog days of summer, and then the semester will begin, the breeze of fall will wander in to our neighborhood and “real life” with a new semester, new neighbors, new activities, will begin again.
The dog days of summer, when we can lie still, panting and catching our breath before getting up to chase our rabbits again joyfully.
