frying today...

chicken that is...
cooked it this morning before the afternoon heat...
had it for supper...
with mashed potatoes and peas...
remember to wipe off the lens of the camera when you step outside...
or you get shots like this...
and then after 3 or 4 photos like that, you finally figure out they look funny...
and you take you shirt tail and start wiping...
the tomatoes love this heat!
there are quite  a few on here now...
I can almost taste them...
we are holding our own...
Daphne loves the heat and the hotter the better...
she doesn't move a lot...
she is in pain most of the time, I think...
but she will not come inside...

a few hot weather tips...
besides drink so much water you have to sit in the bathroom half the day...
change the filters on the furnace if you have central air(we did that today and made a huge difference)...
or wash your filter if you have ac...
find shade when you can...
or a pool...
a pool in the shade would be great...
eat lots of ice cream...
wet towels on top of your head and around your neck really do help...
eat lots of reese's peanut butter cups...
eat out and don't heat up the kitchen...
google blizzard and check out all the snow we don't have and be happy with the heat...
close all your blinds and curtains so when you run around in the house in your under wear, the neighbors won't freak out...
and last but not least, turn the hose on and have a little fun!
Have a great evening...

Well, now I know why your window shades are closed - you are all sitting around in the all together, aren't you? Hnmmm...picturing...picturing...picturing...

I can't believe you fried chicken on a day like this! It is sooo stinking hot - and you are frying chicken? Well, at least you aren't eating chili! xo Diana

Those are some great tips, Tete! I can only imagine what goes on behind those closed curtains, haha! My favorite tip is the eating of lots of ice cream! Keep cool:)

That chicken looks so good! I have never mastered frying chicken so the closest I get is Kentucky fried. And it's not the same thing. Keep cool today and stay away from the stove!

I forgot to close the blinds: That's why my neighbors are running away and holding their hands over their eyes.
