What a weekend this was. Saturday at the market, the heat index reached 110. We were cooking to say the least. Fortunately they decided to close early due to the heat so we got home before it really got hot. (it was only 96 when we got home) I have discovered something about sales and weather. On bad weather days like when it rains or when it is unbearably hot, the crowd thins out but sales will be good. My theory is that on really nice days, most of the people who are in the market are just there to enjoy the day and really aren’t interested in spending money. When someone comes out and braves the elements they are there to buy something.
Saturday evening we went out for dinner at Applebee’s. I wanted riblets for father’s day and due to the heat I didn’t feel like cooking them myself. You can’t beat Applebee’s riblets in my opinion. My sons pitched in and helped pay the tab. I thought that was pretty special.
Sunday was the first day of summer and it was another hot and humid day. I spent most of the day in the pool just enjoying the cool water. That is what I asked for since it was father’s day. I just wanted to sit and relax and I did. So why am I tired and hurting this morning? Could it be my body doesn’t like to relax?
This week will be a hectic one. My niece is getting married on Wednesday. It is a short-notice wedding and it will be outside in a local park. I have volunteered to decorate the wedding site using my flowers and plants and I will also be decorating the reception hall tables. And if that isn’t enough, I am going to help cater the event. Wish me luck. I will take lots of photos.
We have a cold snap coming through today. The high will only be 92. Brrrrrrrr. Is anyone else cold?
Have a great week,
