They - being the weather specialists - tell us we are in the middle of a heat wave up here in the Great White North.
The last two days have been in the high 20's - with the humidex factored in - it has been in the mid 30's. Tomorrow they say it will be 34 with the humidex factored in - it will be 45 degrees (ok ok that is for those of you not on the metric system a whooping 113 degrees!!)
Now in my memory (which grows foggy with age) our normal summer temperatures are usually around 28 degrees (82.4) and I honestly don't remember the humidity being as high - for as long - as this summer. Usually we have a little humidity which triggers a major thunder storm - and poof !! humidity gone.
BUT that isn't happening this summer.... so it is a heat wave.
I live for the summer sunshine - and to some degree the heat.
The strangest thing seems to happen to my body in the sunshine. I go outside - curl up on my lil love seat under the red umbrella - and my body melts (in a good way) into the seat - totally relaxes - it is like a heat massage for the stressed muscles and body. My mind relaxes to the point I am just about brain dead. The quiet summer noises serenade me into a self induced semi comatose state. The longer I sit outside in the heat - the heat grows IN my body. It isn't unusual for me to come inside - find one of the numerous vibrators/dildos I have - and have a quickie ........ yeah a quickie...... cause this heat wave burning inside happens more than once in a day.
I said in an email yesterday - that I wished I could bottle the well being that comes from sitting in the sun - the peace - the tranquility - the overall good feelings........ and bring it out again in the dead of winter - when the wind blows and your nose hairs turn to icicles the minute you step outside - and your breathe freezes - and the sun barely touches the earth - never mind warms it.
But I can't - so I spend as much time outside as possible in the summer - damn the house cleaning - it can keep for those few odd days of rainy weather.
OH ... one big problem with my love of sunshine and heat - W hates it... with a passion!!! Poor W - he doesn't know what he is missing (cheeky grin)
