. . . And it's not even 10 AM yet.  I have studying and housework I could be doing but don't wanna!!!  It's days like this when I wish I still lived closer to downtown.  I'm in the mood to peruse some artsy shops or galleries.  On the other hand, a nice, shady trail head also sounds appealing.  Don't mind me, I'm just thinking aloud.  If you're bored, don't hesitate to chime in with any random musings ;)

I just got up. We decided that ihop was a good idea at 2am, so I slept late enough that I didn't want to eat breakfast. I also have books to read and cleaning to do, but I don't know if that'll happen. I also have wood I bought to build my mom a shoe rack for her birthday. It's just been so hot I don't want to be outside doing it.

I think we all have what is called dog days of summer.. Like its so hot and humid where I am dont really feel like doing much...

So take a break and listen to your body and if you dont feel like doing anything dont do it .. I want to just lay around in AC and watch movies but not sure that will be a good idea today because sis and boyfriend are in and out .. Speaking of them it appears they are getting on each other;s nerves and it appears sis doesnt really have much feelings for him.. Its just like well he is there and a body but to me it doesnt seem like a real thing. You know that I mean? I wont get involved and I am just talking but this is what we are always talking about on here. Like when is it time to realize the guy isnt for you and they have been together now for over a year.. I feel like they just dont match at all.

oh; well stay cool and take care everyone

I feel like it's the days when we don't have anything to do that we also don't get the stuff done that needs to be done either.  I know the weather up here in MA has been so odd--it feels like it rained constantly in June, then around July 4th weekend it was so hot & humid.  I only have a/c in my bedroom so I don't get much done when it's so hot--I usually end up having to go to a mall just to get cooled off, then when it did cool off some, it's still humid and it seems to rain every afternoon--so I guess I'll probably get my weeding done in the fall sometime!

Right now I am waiting to have lunch w/ my DD & her new BF!  I haven't see her since March--that's too long.

I too, think we are in the dog days of Summer.  You want to be outside doing fun stuff or getting other things done around the house.  But it's so stinkin' humid out, you have no motivation.  I was actually busy this weekend as I had stuff to do & errands to run.  I'd much rather be outside hitting the hiking trails.  But there again, it's too humid out to enjoy it.  That's why I don't know how these runners/joggers run in this heat & humidity.

I was alone all weekend and for once I was bored! On Saturday I took my bike downtown just to shop a bit, and afterwards to the mall for a coffee. Lovely weather, but noone to share it with. I stayed in my apartment, and my balcony. Found a few books to read and that saved me from seldom, but utter boredom.
