Beat the Heat -

It's so hot here, that Public Schools are closing early today!
No, not due to snow...due to excessive HEAT

We have heat advisories in effect for our area now with forecasters calling for
99 degrees.
I am thinking lots of ice cream....and the pool!
How about you?

How do you beat the heat?

I stay at home and craft on my little balcony, under the shady trees, great! Valerie

Ha, we haven't had any heat to try and beat, it was only in the low 60's yesterday and suppose to be the same today, throw in some rain for good measure. We have only had a couple of days in the low 70's and one in the low 80's since last September.

Guess I am not the only one suffering from this stifling weather! Crazy being this hot so early!! Well, stay cool, I love you sketch! No school, due to heat! :-)

Wow. We had some pretty intense hot days this week but yesterday, it was about 30 degrees cooler and we ended up with thunderstorms last night that produced hail!!

Anyway, nice sketch. So cute as always! Hee :)

Cute! We had a few days of those HOT temps, but cooling off now. Ice cream and the pool sounds pretty good to me! :)

You must be in the North East with me. Some of my schools in our district had to do the same thing since they don't have A/C. Too bad my son's school was not effected. Your sketch is adorable <3

Ice tea, Ice cream, Pool and take a nap...we are in the same boat. I truly can't remember when we've had a day that did NOT reach 90; it's been at least a month. But I can not complain because well, I don't like winter!
love your illustration :)

I haven't had to worry about it being too hot, but when it does get a bit warmer than I'd like I treat myself to a tall cool glass of ice tea, close the curtains and sit in a darkened room. Love the sketch. xoxo

Love your illustrations Heather! Your characters have such sweetness! I hope you cool off somehow...I'm bummed to hear of all that excessive heat! I like to cool off with a fan, the pool, and something refreshing to drink. : ) Take good care!

pool and ice cream sound good!

We've had mostly an awful spring season, overcast and rainy, other than 2 very hot days this week. For me, I like to enjoy ice cream, lots of it, lol! and cold glasses of water with strawberries and lemons in it for flavoring.
hope it cools down for you soon
