It’s not odd for our temps to exceed 100 degrees, but it is a bit odd for it to be this early into summer. Usually in July, we hover in the 90s, which allows us to acclimate to the hotter weather which mostly arrives in August and September. No acclimating this week. It was damn hot!
Last year after adopting the puppy, we began going to the dog park. During our second visit, a yellow lab taught Rigby how to paddle in the water bowl. Not everyone was a fan of this behavior, but it was pretty cute. Someone told me to get a kiddie pool for her to play in at home. I spent the rest of the summer searching high and low for one, but apparently August was just too late for pools. Once spring arrived this year, the little plastic pools started popping up at the discount stores. I snagged one, even though it was still pretty cool outside. This week’s temperatures persuaded me to pull it out of the garage.
She quickly brought all her toys to the pool.
Let the paddling begin!
In case you missed it, it’s a pink Barbie pool!
The nice thing about the heat is it tires out this crazy puppy a lot quicker than normal.
The Farmer’s Market finally has the summer fruit for sale. The spring pickings are kind of limited as the apples and oranges are no longer at their best, but the peaches, grapes, nectarines and strawberries aren’t quite ready. The Farmer’s Market was gorgeous this week.
White corn was on sale at the market this week. Five ears for $1.00! Fresh corn, right off the cob, is delicious. I bought a ton and cut off the kernels. Now there are several baggies of fresh corn waiting in my freezer, ready to use in all sorts of yummy summer cooking!
