Can someone please turn DOWN the heat?

Trying to keep it cool in this stormy heat!


Sensational Haiku Wednesday on heat

To keep a cool head
Take a deep breath and put in
perspective, worth it?


To keep heat in love
Be thoughtful, patient, and kind
Repaid with kisses


To stay cool in heat
Stroll beach where breezes whisper
and waves tickle toes


Hope you were able to get away this summer or are looking forward to a vacation soon! And friends across the globe who are not feeling the heat, what's your weather like? It would be refreshing to hear!

It was pretty hot here last week but now it's back to mid 70s and cool nights - which is fine by me. Though I have to say the sweltering heat of summer doesn't bother me like it does most folks. In fact I'll take that over winter most days :)

Its actually been very cool here until about a week ago. Now its well into the eighties. Still cool by other state's current standards.

Some lovely images there - especially liked the last one.

I have central a/c and deal with heat that way.....makes for a very sedentary lifestyle, unfortunately, but I hate heat....your lovely images may change my tune a bit....

Thank heavens it's raining today. It was over 100 yesterday.

Yes, someone remind me what winter feels like - please!

No vacation for us, but I can pretend out in the backyard by the blow-up pool!

I really like your haiku, especially the last stanza. It's been a long time since I've gone to the beach (8 years perhaps).

It's definitely been hot here since July came in. This week hasn't been as bad, but the temperatures are supposed to go back up this weekend.

Nice images.

We were promised a beak in the heat this week. Didn't happen.

It truly has been a long hot summer, and we're only half through. Hope you get some cooler weather too.

It's so hot here I had to hose off the front walk and the house to let the cooler slide down another two degrees.

I'm jealous! Reading this from a very wet Devon, England and haven't had any summer weather since 2 weeks iat the beginning of May.

The 2nd stanza is sensuously correct and meant for the young at heart. It's a case of sacrifices that are duly rewarded. How thoughtful, Tara!
