It's A Cruel, Cruel Summer...Redux

A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.

~~ St. Francis of Assisi

Wake me when Summer's over.

That is not drool. Really. I am manifesting snow, but it keeps melting.

Bonifacio Veronese, An Architectural Capriccio with Elegant Figures and Animals Promenading in an Ornamental Garden, circa early 16th Century

Back to me...


Is Summer over?! Please let me see snow!

*sigh...No snow. And Summer is still here, stronger than ever. Nap time again. I hope I don't get muscle atrophy.

I am aware of fried green tomatoes, but is there such a thing as fried black and white malamute? If not, there might be if this heat doesn't end soon. I'm just sayin'...

Oh dear Suka,

yes, the heat is really terrible here in Italy too. I do nothing all day, and like you, I try to stay cool on the floor!
I know that there is so hot in the USA, journalists have spoken that on the TV here.
Stay cool, my friend and drink cold water!
Have a great week.
Woof, woof,

That too bad Suka, I wish you could come and visit here in Scotland.
Toodle pip!
PS Gail says she now knows how all her North American friends are feeling, courtesy of Air Canada, as a 'technical hitch' meant she came back from Newfoundland via Toronto yesterday, where it was 95ºF yesterday afternoon.

Finn said...

We're looking forward to some nice cool weather here too! The summer has been way too long. Stay cool!

MAXMOM IN SA said...

I really hope you get a reprive from the debilitating heat. We are about to experience a bitterly cold front in the next few days. Amazing, this earth of ours

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Suka,we are right there with you. If we didn't have to potty outside, we would never venture out that door. And to think that the next two or three days are going back to the triple digits is so discouraging. When will it end?

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Dear Suka
I know how much you and many others are needing a little cool down,, so I will do a "Rain Dance for you

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Too hot for any kind of comfort or activity, that is for sure! Sending White Dog Army visions of snowy winter days, dripping icicles, gusty cool winds, and leaving pawprints on the trail. Positive thoughts and chilling energy to you and K and the rest.

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh, Suka, the FiveSibes have been doing a lot of the same snoozing here. Let us know if you are able to conjure up some snow there because you just may have five visitors on your doorstep! Stay cool!

Holly and Khady said...

I know EXACTLY how you feel! I am SO DONE with this stupid hot humid weather. We are all dreaming and wishing for the cold weather to hurry and get here!


Tanner and Beth said...

I know what you mean. It is hot here too. Mommy and I only walk in the early morning and late evening. We hide in the basement the rest of the day.
