Growlmy got through her first week of work!
She came home most of the evenings, super tired, but she was still able to let me snoop around on Dogster for a while, before she heard the bed calling her name...
It sure has been hot around here, one night at 1am it was still 81F, and the heat index said 93F!
It hits you like a blast furnace! We feel so bad for those peeps that have no airconditioning. For the first time since she came to the US, growlmy heard that Battle Creek had opened 2 'cooling stations' so peeps w/o A/C could get themselves cooled off...the heat indexes were in the 110's. Our neighbours do not have A/C, but they have just moved here from the tropics and seem to be adjusted to it, using fans and stuff...We have been hiding in our house, not even going for early am walks, because when it is 76F and a humidity of 70% then growlmy will be wilted before we even get to the end of our street...don't know about me, but when I go out into the yard for a while in that heat, when I come back in, I just plop down on the cooler linoleum floor like a big sack of potatoes, BOL!
Perhaps soon we will be able to get some walks in, I do miss going on those, to sniff all the smells and view all the critters that cross my path.
Growlmy got this weekend off! She thought she was going to be put right to work, but it seems that they are more relaxed than she first thought. Yeah!
It is a good thing in the timing, too...
Monday will be growlmy and pawppy's 24th annifursary! Not sure what they will be doing, no plans were made on account of the uncertainty of the job...but perhaps they will be going out to dinner...sans moi! Growl!
Already 24 years, they can't believe it!
And when they got married, it was 95F and dripping with humidity...
Recently growlmy also marked another annifursary, her 5th year of being a 'survivor'! Yeah! That seems so far behind her, she even finds it hard to believe that she had been that ill, having 2 major surgeries in 4 weeks, 16 months of chemo, and several minor surgeries, too.
Every day is a new blessing and health is the biggest one of all. This is what makes her feel so blessed to be able to go and help others who do not enjoy the fine health as she does, her way of saying a kind of thank you for it.
Well now she has to go and do some kitty stuff, she said...GRRR, the nerve! BOL!
Once again, a big (((♥thanks♥))) to all who shared in the fun and honor of my Dog of the Day, last Sunday.

Hope the heat cools down a little for you so you can get a walk in soon!
We did get a walk this morning, and hope that this heat wave has diminished enough to let the house air out with some open windows too, perhaps by tomorrow.
