Summer may not have officially started yet, but here in Texas where I live, it sure feels like it has! Right now, it is currently 100 Degrees with a feels like temp. of 103, yuck! And that’s probably not the hottest it will be today because our hottest temperature has been coming between 5-6 in the evening.

If you are also somewhere where it’s THAT hot, make sure to keep hydrated with plenty of liquids and protect yourself from that sun! As for me, I am staying indoors with the Air conditioner doing another 5 question Friday!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What is your favorite summer time activity? I am not now nor have ever been an outdoorsy person and as soon as the temps. start to rise outside, I tend to hibernate indoors all the more. So in actuality, being inside with the AC reading is my fav. activity BUT if I had to pick an outdoors one, I would say hanging with friends and/or family somewhere in the shade or swimming(though I don’t know how)

2. Do you have one laundry soap you stick to, or do you buy whatever’s on sale? We don’t have a hook-up for a washer/dryer in our apt. so it’s either the apt. washeteria area or borrowing a family’s…..currently, we wash and dry our clothes at my parent’s because they are trying to save us the money it would cost to pay the machines we have here, therefore I really don’t have a preference for soap atm

3. What is your favorite dinner to make in the summer? I don’t think I have one….Pasta is my fav. meal year round but if I am eating outdoors where it’s hot, I would probably prefer sandwiches or something lighter….more fruits cause they’re refreshing

4. Do you have any talents? I love to sing…I think I’m fairly good at it so I guess that’s a talent. I would like to think I have a talent for writing sometimes and also that I can act decently. I can impersonate a baby’s cry as an unusual talent. Oh…and I don’t know if it’s really a talent, but I’ve always been able to do that ballet move where you turn both feet outwards and slowly squat down and back up…I know the name of it but for the life of me can’t recall it at the moment! I was born with my right hip extended a little out so it makes it really easy for me.

5. If you could instantly be an expert in something, what would it be? Why? It would be awesome if I could be an expert in what men are thinking. I’m sure every woman would love that and every man would love to know what women are thinking! It would also be nice to be an expert in knowing how to make money, LOL I like to dream big, what can I say?
Well, there you have them, 5 questions and my 5 incredible or cheesy answers…take your pick! As always, feel free to answer them in the comments or your own blog! OR feel free to ask me a question of your very own that you would like me to answer! If you do, I might turn them into a post or add it in next week’s 5qf with a link to who asked it!
(Sending a special thanks to Mirth and Motivation for bestowing upon me the honor of not 1, not 2, BUT 3 awesome awards that I will be sharing later on in the week with others! Be sure to check her blog out if you never have! It’s so awesome!)

{June 7, 2011}   The heat is my enemy!

If there’s one thing I absolutely detest about summer in Texas, it’s the heat! Yesterday, I was out headed to a doctor’s check-up around 10 in the morning and I groaned in protest as I drove by a bank that broadcasted the current temp. as 98 degrees. UGH! It’s not even the hottest days yet either!

It doesn’t help that I have inherited this extra skin on me that acts as insulation. While some people rejoice as the temperature gets warmer, I walk around feeling like I’m trapped in a desert. It’s no wonder I prefer staying indoors with an AC a much as possible in the summer time. I hibernate just like a bear….a confused bear that mistook summer for winter, I suppose.

Is it only me that feels this way though? Am I the only one who feels that the increasing heat just sucks all the energy out of you and makes you feel like a zombie in search of brains…I mean, water?

Someone should really invent an invisible climate controlled bubble that you can wear around you where you can be comfortable while outside the bubble, the temperature remains the same. It would probably have an atrocious price tag, though….and I would be scraping together pennies to be able to afford it. Anything to be out and about in the Texas heat without having to suffer through it! Lord help me make it through this heat!
