We're Having a Heat Wave

   Whew ! Has it been Hot in New Hampshire!  We've had seven straight days with temperatures in the 90's, but today the humidity is lower and we topped out with temps around 88 degrees.  It was still a pretty good beach day, and last week was excellent for anyone on vacation.  We used our pool as much as possible, then retreated to our air conditioned TV room.
     Our one year old rescue dog actually seems to enjoy the pool!  We got him a safety vest which keeps him floating while he paddles around.  Bruno has a couple of toys that float, and he is more concerned with grabbing them, than he is worried about being in the deep end.  It also helps that he holds them above the water line, which helped him to stop trying to drink the pool water.  Right now, he always goes into the water by way of  the stairs, but my husband is convinced that he will be jumping off the side of the pool before the end of the summer.  I'll keep you all posted with our progress.
     Summers in New England are pretty short, and so it is important to take advantage of all the beach days that get to enjoy.  Grilling burgers and a couple of side salads makes for an easy supper.  Any night that there are no pans to scrub is a gift to me.  I'm thankful for my blessings, and I try to enjoy each day!
      Another great thing about summertime is baseball, and the Red Sox are playing the Yankees at Fenway Park tonight.  I think the Red Sox are ahead right now, and so I'm gonna run and catch the end of the game.....and the beat goes on......the beat goes on......
