Real Cool

We've had a pretty mild summer so far, but this week it's back to reality. Upper 90's, air thick with humidity, and searing sunshine are making me feel as though I'm living in an oven. A typical summer in St. Louis is upon us. Because it's too darn hot to go outside, get any chores done, or even to do much thinking, I've conjured up a few images to help all of us feel better. Put up your feet and imagine cool breezes...



































I think I just shivered. How about you?

Oh, Pat. The last one--complete with falling snow--really helped me chill out.

I wish you had posted earlier. I was at Tower Grove park for the international festival today, and my granddaughter and I roasted. (The constant stream of sweat added to the joy.)

Then, I really needed some snow to think about. Later tonight, when I feel a bit sticky, I'll go back to your post and bring my temperature down...

Good ones, thanks! That last one definitely made me quit complaining about the heat for now!

I like the last picture--just not too much of it to often!

That pool is so inviting! The ice cream tempting, the snow a reminder that what is to come.

Thanks for the 'cool' images. And I love the question in your previous post and I'm so sorry about Bogey getting his tail caught in the spider contraption! Brown recluses are not to be messed with! Stay cool, as you are!

Love all the pics, Pat. Thanks for the smile, and for making me feel refreshed!

Love the one with the pooch in front of the fan. We've been hot as blazes here in Atlanta, too, though the early mornings are cool and lovely. By 2 pm, though, it's miserable out there. And now I just may need to finish off that mint chocolate chip ice cream sitting in the freezer!

No...high 80s and muggy here at 8:20 pm...ready for fall!

Love the pool, although even a swimming pool in Texas is like hot bathwater this time of year.

Just got back from Colorado, and the weather was great, looking forward to fall! Thanks for the images!

Not here, we could get snow in the mountains any day now!
