Where did I put the blankets??

Last Saturday the temperature hit the 90's and humidity made it seem as though I shared quarters with Sponge Bob Squarepants.  Seven days later, 30 degrees (these are Fahrenheit scale, dear non U.S. readers).  It's torture by weather.

I am starting to think about upping my trip to Florida plans for this year!

I have plans to see the movie Boyhood with friends this weekend.  That's the one that took 16 years to film because the point was to show the real progression of growing up.  It has gotten excellent reviews.  Movie and dinner with the girls.

Tomorrow,  my brother is having a get together at his place.  It's meant to be outdoors.  Fortunately,  he has always been into huge bonfires and will have plenty of fire wood on hand because it will probably be needed.

  1. Enjoy the movie and dinner!
    It is still very hot and humid here in Hawaii, with the temperature high at 90F and the low at 76. September is the hottest month of the year, and January is the coldest here.

  2. We had the same type of weather change here -- I'll enjoy the nice autumn weather when it finally arrives and stays. Let us know how you liked the movie. BTW, I'm reading the works of a Vermont author -- Chris Bohjalian -- and I'm enjoying his books.

  3. Can't wait for you to see BOYHOOD and tell us about it. Almost saw it in LA but went to THE MOST WANTED MAN instead.

  4. I have to admit a preference for the cooler weather myself, although we were not quite as high or low as your temps. The humidity earlier in the week was terrible. Hope the movie and the get together go well.

  5. I have to agree with the previous post! I can not deal with the high humidity and heat, but wow what a big dip your temps took! Ours cooled off too, but not that much! I am looking to cool temps in the fall. Hope you enjoyed your movie!

  6. Be interested in your Boyhood review. Amazing that it took so long to make--done in real time.
    As our weather man said," the door to summer has slammed shut". Jeans and sweatshirt weather here.
    A bonfire sounds delightful..

  7. We have had such a great summer, but this sudden UP and then DOWN is downright painful, isn't it?

  8. Hopefully the weather will moderate for a while somewhere BETWEEN 90 and 30!

  11. Big fluctuation of temperatures here too. Last month we planned a cook out for this Tuesday, we'll be eating at the kitchen table instead of the picnic table!!! Spending time with good friends will be wonderful no matter where we are!!!

  13. Glad you are cooling off -- I am pretty sure you sent all of the heat here! It hit 103 yesterday and I feel like I am going to melt. Only 95 today! I seriously think the heatwave is a result of the kids going back to school later this year! We always get a week of 2 of high temps after school starts. YUK!

  14. We have had extremes here, too. We have had frost warnings, with hot summer-like weather just a week ago!
