i’m never completely where i’m supposed to be.

if you ask me flat out I will always say

that the summer is my favorite time of the year.

but my god, it’s too hot here already!

my days are dictated not by how I feel and what I desire

rather: whether I can last more than five minutes outside.

and DJ, oh how he loves being outdoors!

(how he cries when it’s time to come inside)


earlier this afternoon we took a walk, the three of us, down the street

and dom told me that his cousin was right,

that vegas should be covered with some sort of solar blanket

and damn it if that’s not the smartest thing I’ve ever heard


but after this walk I was feeling so sluggish and sweaty

that i’ve been indoors ever since.

i sent dom out to pick up a carton of eggs

and some french bread that I intend to eat

slathered in oil and vinegar while

standing up in front of the cutting board.

easy dinners are my favorite,

i know dom won’t disagree.


though not official, summer has crept into town

and all the watermelon and peach iced tea in the world

won’t be enough to cool me down.
i guess i really shouldn’t complain
everyone has issues with where they live, right?


happy tuesday night, all.

    Ha! Covering Vegas with a solar blanket — they should try the same thing here in DC. Yesterday was so humid that it was hazy and the air was thick and wet and just tasted…hot. But as horrible as I make it sound, I much prefer DC summers to Portland summers. Portland summers are way too cold. If I have to wear jeans and a hoodie to THE BEACH in the summer and I'm still cold, that's just not right.

    my issues are usually that it's too cold 90% of the year! but oh I am a whip when it comes to weather that's too hot

    Too hot weather is so not my thing. We don't have really hot weather a lot but I always wonder how you stay cool.
