I’ll breath again in December

When I woke up this morning the sky was pretty dark and there were flashes of lightning. That’s okay by me because I wasn’t planning on running outside anyway. It’s far too hot and humid.

Todays weather

Instead I ran 6 miles on my treadmill. It wasn’t too bad. I didn’t push myself too hard but what made the run enjoyable today was Elle King. If you haven’t listened to her music yet, you really should. She’s amazing. Let this be my contribution to music Monday, you’ll thank me for it later.

Of course, I still need to take the dogs for a walk so I’m hoping this bad weather ends soon. Hank gets really impatient if he has to wait too long. For some reason my dogs aren’t all that concerned with the weather but for me, the humidity feels like breathing water. No thank you.


Last Friday I finally finished priming the walls of my bedroom and over the weekend I put on two coats of the new paint color…..it still needs an additional coat. It’s a good thing I only paint once every 10 years because the fumes are doing a wonderful job of jackin up my sinuses.

I still have to paint the ceiling and then I can do the cut in, after which MacGyver can replace the trim and the doors and put it the new flooring. Oh, and I have to paint the new doors too….


So, maybe in December we’ll be able to sleep in there again. That should coincide nicely with the end of the God awful humidity and the dissipation of the paint fumes.

In the meantime, I’ll just have to deal with it the best way I know how.  Shopping.

I sure wish the Dick’s Sporting Goods in my neighborhood was located beside the grocery store, like in this picture I found.  That would make shopping so much more fun.

Have a fabulous Monday!

Is it humid where you live?
At what point is it too hot for you to run outside, and do you resort to the treadmill?

  1. I actually don’t mind running on the treadmill. I would rather have a productive run then sloshing through the heat. I’m loving the Ellie song, thanks for sharing.

    I’m glad I found your blog and I can’t wait to follow along. I love your humor!
