I can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend ALREADY!!!!
If it is Labor Day Weekend, shouldn't we be enjoying some lovely Fall temps?
We did last year at this time!
In fact, this is what it looked like exactly one year ago when Bonnie and I arrived at an outdoor flea market. . . ready to search for treasures.
It was a rainy start, and as I recall, it stayed very comfortable as the day progressed. Not unreasonably wet or hot. Just a good day to walk around acres and acres of treasures!
We were planning on going again yesterday, but had to cancel. However, I don't think either of us were looking forward to traipsing around the acres and acres of treasures this time. The reason for that is seen in the next photo.
Yep, that was the reading on my car thermometer Thursday afternoon. . . too hot to do much but stay inside with lots of iced drinks.
That afternoon, I did decide to brave the heat and head over to our near by Penney's store. However, when I saw the racks and racks of coats they had ready and waiting, my eyes nearly rolled back into my head!!
I had to snap a picture of this cute PINK jacket for my Pink Saturday friends, but I could barely hold it next to me!!!
It's toooooooo hot to be thinking winter coats. . . let alone to be TOUCHING them!!!
When I returned home, it was time to take the grand dog, Izzie, on a little stroll. We were both hoping this would be one of the very last outings in such hot weather conditions for awhile.
Did you notice her new PINK collar and leash? Yep, she's a girly girl!
Oh, and did you see that I got a new PINK cover for my phone? It's called an "Otterbox"....and is supposed to give extra protection in case I drop it.
It's very likely that I will drop it. I dropped my old one many, many, many times. I've dropped my little camera several times, too. The last time I dropped it hard was in the spring and it hit a concrete sidewalk and sorta popped open a bit. I was able to get it back together. . . but it struggled to take pictures. However, over the next few days, a camera miracle occurred. . . it just started taking photos like it always did and has been performing very well ever since. I wonder if they make Otterboxes for point and shoot cameras. I'll have to Google that.
Sorry for digressing.
THE STONE RABBIT told me I should take advantage of the high temps to air out and de-stink my running shoes!
I did just that because I signed up to do a Labor Day 5K run!!! My son will be in the same event, but will finish looooong before I do. My goal is to run the entire distance without having to take a walking break. . . his goal is to finish before one of his friends!
They are both great runners. I just think it's great that I run! :)
I hadn't planned on doing this particular running event, but we are supposed to get an EXTREME weather break after Saturday. HALLELUJAH!!!
The temps on Monday morning should be in the upper 50s!!! Not only will it be cool, but the course is flat!!! Two great combinations in my book!
THE STONE RABBIT and I wish you a great Labor Day Weekend. I hope you get to spend time with family and or friends. . . enjoying some of the final days of Summer 2011 as it makes its way out of here. It has been a hot one!
OK. . . so it was a hot summer, but I reallllllllly am not ready to deal with snow again just yet.
I'll quit my whining about the heat. . . cuz at least when we have heat, I don't have a driveway to shove!
