Hot Hot Hot ..... HOW HOT IS IT?????

Well friends it's been hotter 'n a goats bottom in a pepper patch...104*, 102* and then a cool snap of 100*...The a/c can hardly keep up. We have the ceiling fans running to help out and you can see how Willie is taking advantage of the little breeze put out by the one in the living room. You can tell the heat has him about wore out and I swear he's saying "Please get me out of this @$#% fur coat" on the picture his look is priceless :)

Upstairs the central air is out (old house I had central put in downstairs and one up) we were supposed to have it fixed by the meantime we have units in the bedrooms but not in the den where the 'puter is and I am "glowing" as I type. (In the South horses sweat, men perspire and women glow and believe me I am lit up like New York on New Year's) Which is why I haven't been bloggin' much. But...I do manage to get in here early in the am and try to catch up with all of you and that is how I found out I have been nominated for the "Nice Matters" award...Trisha from My2Roses and dear Jenny from Old Bag New Tricks both .... now I ask you , what could be better than that and a nice cold glass of iced tea? Not much I tell you and I am so very, very tickled and want to say "thank-you".
While visiting Aunt T's blog I decided to play:
'Pay It Forward' - be one of the first three to post a comment here and agree to 'Pay It Forward' by making the same promise on your blog. - I will send one homemade item to the first three people who reply to this post wanting to participate and pay it forward. I don't know what the gift will be yet, or when you'll get it (sometime in the next 365 days, I promise!) I'm hoping it will only take me a few days or the week to get an item in the mail to you but I do promise you will get the item! Please go visit Aunt T's blog to get the link this originated from...and be sure and tell me that you want to play too.

Now please excuse me while I go join Willie and try to cool off just a bit.
My wish for you: May you have friends who think you are nice and that it matters and may you be staying cool.

MY it is hot! Try to keep cool. The cat seems to have the right idea!

I just stumbled into your blog... that picture just cracks me up! I'll be back to see what's new at the Scented Cottage.

Francie, that is one cool cat! We're glowing up north here too. I don't think I have the wherewithal to pay anything backward, forward or sideways this week, but definitely next... when we get that cool snap down to 90.

Seeking a breeze,

Absolutely fabulous picture...Love Willie, he has the right idea!! Cats are so clever and smart, most likely this is why they have 9 lives. We should emmulate them more. Think I shall go have a bath, a drink of milk and a NAP:-)
Hug Life, Marylou
