Trust me, these are not lemons…

This picture is from last week, when I arrived here in Phoenix. I joked that it was my punishment for not liking snow.


Some thought I was complaining, but let me assure, I was not. I lived here in the desert for many years, back when I was having my own babies. I don’t mind the heat. I reminded CGMan of that the other day when I told him how hot it was outside. He commented that was easy to say when I was in the comfort of my air conditioned car. First of all, duh. And secondly, I reminded him, I didn’t have to shovel the sunshine to get to my air conditioned car, nor did I have to shovel the sunshine off the driveway to back out with my air conditioned car.

Let me just pause to say, there is no way on God’s green earth I would be shoveling a driveway of snow (read: man’s job), I was merely making a point.

I also reminded him that when it’s hot outside, one can always cool off in a swimming pool. In the winter, where he comes from, the only thing a swimming pool is good for is hockey. So, back to the issue of the heat. Yes, it is hot here, but this week will be cooler. See?


This is a dry heat. Don’t scoff!  0% chance of rain also means 0% humidity.
Humidity is the difference between lemons and lemonade, my friends.

Me and Baby K?
We are all about the lemonade, baby!!


  1. Oh man, I LOVE dry heat like that! I am all for it. And love the swimming pictures. Yay for baby love!

  2. I hope you don't ban me from the blog and throw stones at me, but I gotta vote with CGMan. Just the mere thought of all that *dry heat* and I start cringing and feeling faint.

  3. These are great pics! I'm not a heat girl myself, but then again I've never really experienced that dry heat. Bring on a cozy sweater and the smell of a fire in the hearth. Mmmmm.

  4. I don't necessarily like the snow, but give me cold weather any time of the heat. I can put on enough clothes and be warm, but there is only a limited amount of clothes I can take off and I'm still hot. Then add humidity to heat and it's a killer. Love the baby photos.

  5. Make that of to over the heat.

  6. Love dry heat. We actually do get it in Florida from about Oct to April, but no one believes me. They think we're always in Sunshine Soup.

    Love baby girls in bathing suits and shades!

  7. I'll take the dry heat, too. The winter of 2010-11 did me in. Have fun, Nana!

  8. Humidity is INDEED the difference between lemons and lemonade. I live in Ohio. Trust me. Lemons.

  9. She's so ADORABLE, how do you stand it?
