Some Like It Hot

I’m a stickler when it comes to the seasons. Everyone’s saying it’s summer. The pools are open and it’s safe to wear white shoes. In my heart, though, it won’t be summer until the Solstice: June 21. However, I am sunburned like a mofo and my shoulders are like “What the ever loving HELL did you do to yourself woman?”

Sunday, it was 97F. Blazing hot. It was hot even for me, and you all know I like it hot. I was out in the sun almost all day, hanging out with awesome people and having a wonderful time.

I didn’t wear sunscreen. I guess I underestimated the power of the Sun. I did notice my bag starting to hurt my shoulder, but I attributed that to me thinking it was getting heavy after lugging it around all day. It wasn’t until after I took a shower that I realized… Oh. I know that burning feeling. And sure enough, my shoulders were bright red. Oops.

Do I regret anything? NO. Would I do it again? YES YES triple times yes. Because I got to spend the day with an awesome group of people doing awesome things and having an awesome time.

Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 54F. See? THIS is why I won’t say it’s officially summer. Hmph.

‘Til next time!

    Funny last year I had a title Some Like it Hot: I don’t. Wow 97 degreees? We haven’t had that yet. This weather is crazy already. Second tropical storm of the season came through yesterday. It was 73. Today it will be 90. Ouch to your sunburn. The first and last one I had I got on a cloudy day at the beach and didn’t know that I was fried until I got in the shower. Happy peeling. Cloud gate is pretty – when and if back in Chicago I need to take a picture there.

    LOL! Too funny! …but seriously I’m sorry to hear about your sunburn. At least it was well worth the burn though. Oh!…I can’t wait to see your business cards! That will be an exciting moment indeed. However, I’m even more excited about seeing your Yoga Instructor certificate. How much longer? From the looks of it I can tell you had an awesome day despite the heat. Great pics as usual!

      It’s time for the 50s to burrow away until late October or November! I’m ready for the weather to break and STAY broken!!! :)
      Tomorrow the Sun is supposed to be back. Thank goodness.
