Every day we have to devise some way to get out of the hot house. Thursday was no exception. By the time Emily gets out of bed, it’s usually 85 degrees, and I’m begging for the breeze to find its way into the house. My lack of proper clothing in my living room is scandalous. No amount of iced tea can quite compensate for the lack of air conditioning.
On this particular day, we escaped to the mall so Emily could buy a new swimsuit. I actually got her to go into the bookstore this time, and once I got her in there, it was impossible to get her to leave. This is my favorite problem. If I have to be stuck somewhere, I want it to be in a bookstore. It would have been nice to have an iced chai to keep me awake. Ooh, and maybe one of those beautiful key lime tarts. And a pizza stuffed pretzel. I sort of love the Barnes & Noble cafe.
I can’t even remember, at this point, what we did for the rest of the day. I think there was some reading of Harry Potter involved. We’re just trying to stay cool and have fun and live life and love the world.
Perhaps one day I’ll get my act together and finally get caught up on this blog. I promise, one more post today. So close. I’m such a ridiculous slacker.
