Ok, it's about the weather

I just have to say the weather today is incredibly wonderful. Down here in the Deep South summer is usually muggy and hot. The cats go outside and languish all day in a heat induced stupor. I keep Sassy inside as much as possible because of her allergies aren't helped one bit by the steamy heat.

This morning a rare summer cool front has moved through. Lows down in the low 60's for the next few nights. Such a treat when just a few weeks ago the lows went barely below 80, with highs up near 100.

Chubby and Lily have gotten what I call the fall skitters. The cooler weather has the two of them running like insane kitties outside, chasing each other or leaves waving gently in the breeze.

All of us, humans, animals, plants, trees and even the earth seem to be breathing a collective sigh of relief from the baking, convection oven like heat.

It's only July. We'll all be roasting again before you know it, but we're enjoying today while we can.

PS. I started menu planning for next week, and I've just now realized there's no Mexican on the menu, yet. I've got a couple of nights not filled in yet, so there's still time to get a molcajete and make something delicious.
