Too hot to handle…


What does one do when it is 104 degrees (40 celsius) out?  BLOG, that’s what!


I had my first meeting with the new photography club yesterday and I think I’m really going to like this group!  Everyone was very friendly and I already got a lot of information from just one hour of talking with a few of the members.  I found out about neutral density filters and how important they are for sunset photography.  For anyone that’s interested, you can read about them here.   There will be many activities to choose from, so I’m looking forward to the first one!   There are some amazing photographers in the group, and I’m sure I will learn a lot.

It’s been beastly hot, so I haven’t wanted to go out and take any pictures, but I have been to the gym.  Today I’d say I wasn’t as into it as other times I’ve been, but I think it’s the heat.  I did, however, increase my spin time to 21 minutes and after that I spent ten seven minutes walking on a treadmill on a steep incline.   I just couldn’t quite do more today but hey, I’ll take it.    I’m still ahead of my goal to do a spin class by the end of November.  I’m still in need of icing and elevation after I work out, but I think it’s an important thing to do since it’s still a bit sore.

I also spent time cleaning out my drawers and closet.  What a huge difference!  Does anybody know why hangers seem to multiply in the closet?  Where on earth do they all come from?

Another great thing to do on a hot day is go shopping!  Picking up a cool pair of earrings really perked me up.

Ooo…almost time for a skinny margarita!  I find them very healing for the knee  🙂
