Its 100 degrees here today.
Over 100 in some spots.
Life goes on hold around here in this heat. I know there is stuff I should be doing, but I am just waiting for it to be not quite so darn HOT!
Yes, I am sure this makes me wimp in your eyes. Most of you that have to deal with real weather.
But one of the perks of living here with the crowds and the traffic and the incredible taxes and more crowds, our main perk and maybe our only perk, is clement weather!
We are a bunch of Goldilocks who want it just right! Not too cold, not too hot!
Summer is battling it out with fall for supremacy and fall is young and weak. It is no match for summers last hot breath. What happened to our ocean breezes? Where is the wonderful marine layer that protects us from the nasty heat and takes care of us? I guess summer noticed we were being neglected and with fall making head way in other parts of the nation, turned its attention to us.
Never fear, it will be back. Summer is having its last days. All fall has to do it bide its time and summer will be a vague memory that we all talk about whilst trying on new scarves and picking out new boots and sweaters.
Before you know it, it will be spring again.Because we here in SoCal do not have winter. Oh sure, if you go up to the mountains you will find plenty of it swirling about. But down here coastal way, it’s a long chilly fall followed by a chilly spring. Winter is so busy messing about with the rest of the country, its worn out by the time it gets down here and just puts on some sunglasses and sips mojitos by the pool.
On another note, our daughter dropped by today (I have more to write about our weekend together soon, when it’s not so hot) and made us a wonderful brunch made with sweet potatoes, fresh corn, onions, russets, herbs and spices and some sausage, all sautéed together. It was “Jessica hash” and I licked my plate. Oh but there was more. I poached the eggs for her and each plate full had 2 slightly overcooked poached eggs that were supposed to break up and make a delightful sauce over the whole shebang. It was still lip-smacking stuff.
So, of course, I took pictures and look what happened? I could not have done this if I had wanted to in a million years…
Really, how cool is that? Jess dicing in la petite kitchen. Is she really moving so fast the camera can’t follow?
