Deep Summer is When Laziness Finds Respectability

The Northeast heated up.

Unexpectedly, way too early in the season, we found ourselves in the middle of a heat wave.  Mid June and the temperature was, uncharacteristically, in the high 90's all week. Some cities even reported temps of low 100's.  Without fanfare, the dog days of summer arrived and, simultaneously, a good deal of my energy disappeared.

(Notice my subtle insertion of the word "dog." It's been my experience that the mere mention of the word "dog" or "cat" in any post makes it practically an instant success.)

Once upon a time, for the first comment of each day, we'd see this:

what does the graphic say?

 

Tentatively, I'd put in the first letter and if the word came up...well, let's just say it was like winning the jackpot.

what does the graphic say?

 

 

Sometimes, I'd be forced to cautiously type in the second letter before catching a glimpse of the much desired graphic. Voila! First runner up isn't so bad! 

what does the graphic say?

I'll take that consolation prize.

 

 

But when it doesn't show at all, I sigh heavily. After all, it is so much work to type in the entire word.

what does the graphic say?

 

Now, we have a new system in place and it's for the overall good of our blogging platform.

To discourage spamming, commenting has become time-consuming and tedious for those not logged in.

I hope I remain as industrious as ever

but, if by chance, laziness takes hold and you don't see as much of me

then, by way of explanation, I offer you this quote

Really?  I don't have time to be lazy, even in the heat of summer . . . I love it hot - it motivates me! :)  Enjoy yours.

Hi Jill, Send some of that weather over this way please! It hasn't felt like spring let alone summer. I was walking my dog the other day and I was passing a bed of roses and stopped to smell them. I had to laugh in that moment as I did indeed "stop to smell the roses". It's always good to take in a lazy day when you can and summer is the perfect time. Especially at the beach.

Jill, I try to make a list of what I want to do when I do have the energy, then I force myself to do it. I try to ignore those dog days of summer.

Joy - I actually love it hot too but when it reaches 100, it becomes a little tougher to get things done. (it's not dry heat in these parts.) I wrote this on the day AR was fooling around with the system and I had to write what the graphic said after every single comment. That got to be a bit much.

Cindy - Hi Cindy. I know exactly what you're saying. The heatwave actually ended and it's now back to 70, cloudy, rainy and cold. I miss those warmer temps already.

Ellen - That's the best thing to do. Make a list and get what's on it done.

it is ok to be lazy sometimes.. we all deserve it!! I have to say though, if I had to write that graphic after every comment, I probably wouldn't comment much

Hi Jill...oh look at that new header! Loved the old one, but this one is VERY cool the way you put the pictures together to make the one scene!  I keep saying I need to change mine, but just haven't gotten around to it.

Thanks so much for noticing, Cindy. I couldn't decide if I was ready to give up the old one either, but change is good.

Fortunately they didn't keep that change for but a couple of days. They changed one thing which had a ripple effect that they didn't plan on, so they changed things back.

I dislike typing words that are not words at all.

Hopefully its cooled down by now in Merrick NY.  It was very hot here in Virginia also for a while and then the cool nights and beautiful days came.  Those really hot days can make it difficult especially if you are outside in the heat.  Perfectly understandable.  High heat and we need to adjust.  Hopefully you are enjoying a nice weather weekend!
