The thunderstorm last night (we didn't have crepes at RUDE de Crepes, we ended up at Cafe Mozart on Mamaroneck Avenue) seems to have helped a little- it's 80F & 80% humidity.

Torpid Thursday

Lunch at Tandoori so the heat feels all the more oppressive ;) But delicious crepes to look forward to this evening :)

80F with 88% humidity- a thunderstorm would be a relief.

Tropical Tuesday!

Wow, it's hot! 89F and quite humid, the heat index is around 95F.

When it's this hot I park down by the bridge and start Holly off with a swim so she's wet to begin with, then we'll finish with a longer swim before heading home.

Whenever I hear this, or any song from this show, it makes me smile (especially Elaine Stritch's The Ladies Who Lunch). They are just so well constructed :)

Monday, a bit rushed

Got to get home to meet the cable guy (our internet is not working)- it's always this way, you wait all day and then when you leave to walk the dog he calls to say he's on his way :(

Warm (!), 86F and humid!

Wednesday with CJ

The boy is posing with a samurai sword (and wearing a fleece jacket!) for some reason. Warm and a bit less sticky today, 71F.

No music, a healthy debate on the attributes of the drm on the new crop of gaming consoles :)

Tuesday, June 11, 2013


Warm and very humid, 72F. The woods are still very waterlogged even though the sun is out, and the bugs are getting quite annoying. But on the plus side Holly chased a deer - and broke off the chase and came back when I called her :)

Tropical Storm Andrea

Absolutely tipping down with a gusty wind as the remnants of the storm pass over us, 60F. Posting this on our return to the van.

I'm very glad I have a dog who doesn't mind the rain as we do the long loop to make up for the fact that she just got a loop around Rye on the leash and some time playing with Sparrow and Violet yesterday (busy day!).

Monday lunchtime

Taking a kind of unofficial day off after the craziness of the weekend :)

We had torrential rain this morning, but it's turned sunny and nice now. Still quite warm (73F) and humid, but nothing like the oppressive heat we had Saturday and Sunday!

Sultry Sunday

Another hot, sticky day, 85F.

Jackie just took Holly to play with the kids and a baby pool at Jody's yesterday while I was in the city with CJ and some of the other Confirmation kids at the cathedral (after a huge funeral in the morning). And this afternoon I have to go back and finish cleaning the nursery school before the choir evensong :(
