Oh - my - goodness!!!! I think my favorite phrase this week is the one uttered by the Wicked Witch of the West in the 'Wizard of Oz' right after Dorothy threw water on her - "I'm melting..."
That's how I am feeling these days as the temperatures reach the upper 90's and the heat index in the triple digits! I'M MELTING!!
Doesn't seem like anything keeps me cool these days...I walk from my studio downstairs to the kitchen upstairs and I just melt....the glass of ice-cold tea cools me off enough to walk back down the stairs to the studio again to finish working. You might be thinking "Liz don't you have air conditioning in your studio?" to which I'd tell you "Nope, but even if I did, with all the talking I do, the hot air overpowers the cool air anyway!"
Forget about finding clothes that are cool enough, even a swimsuit isn't cutting it now! I may single-handedly bring the halter-top back!! Oh and forget about drying my hair (with the hairdryer) after taking a cold shower..the only hairstyle I have these days is the ponytail! Whew!
I don't mind heat but I do mind the humidity that comes with it - it just zaps you! Wish you could see my dogs & cats right now - downright lazy as they sleep the day away! It zaps them too!
There is an upside to this however - I have empathy for Frosty the Snowman!! I now know how he felt as he melted away.
