Wow...I Fell Asleep

This heat wave really has me down. I do not feel like doing anything. I think it's getting Hiker down too because this morning when I got up to feed her, she didn't jump all around like she normally does and when I put the food in her bowl, she just sat there and looked at it for awhile. Usually she is all over it before I can even get it into the bowl. I think with this heat, she's not as hungry. I know it does that to me too. We went for a very short walk at 7:15 am and only did about a mile because it was already 80° outside. The TV News yesterday said that yesterday was supposed to be the hottest day of the heat wave, but this morning they said today may be even hotter. I went over to Sam's Club around 10:00 and it was 100° by then. SoCal Edison had called for a “Flex Alert” which means they want us to conserve energy as much as possible. I always set my A/C at 78° but today I am leaving all of my blinds closed which helps some. Went up to get the mail and also took Hiker out into the yard a couple of times, but it was so hot that we didn't stay out too long. Around 2:00 pm I stretched out on the couch and fell asleep. Woke up a couple of times but actually slept for about an hour. That proves that this heat has me down because I normally cannot fall asleep in the middle of the day. It got up to 107° today.

  1. The heat makes me feel ill everytime I go out in the afternoon. My poor old cat Susie is feeling it too. We keep a fan blowing on her in the garage but it just blows hot air. Hope it helps her some. She is an outdoors cat.
