Today is a great day to be a goose.

Geese spend a lot of time in the water. On hot days like this, it’s possible just to swim around all day. Or flap your wings and — boom! — instant fan!

I could have used a set of wings while running errands today. It was close to 95 degrees this afternoon with 50% humidity and my poor old car is sans air conditioning.

It actually hasn’t had A/C for years but that never bothered me too much. I wasn’t in the U.S. for the past couple of summers and even when I was, I never had to commute to far via car.

Soon, though, my commute will be about an hour each way. And if today’s trip is any indication, getting A/C soon is a requirement, not a need.

Let’s just say that when I finally got home, I looked like I’d been hanging out with this guy:

Except that instead of swimming in a lake, I was apparently swimming in a puddle in the driver’s seat. 😳

Summer, I love you, I hate you, but mostly I love you.

Walking in the door, I headed straight to the blender for a strawberry smoothie. Perfect!

What’s your favorite kind of smoothie?

    My favorite is a chocolate banana smoothie … and now I feel like having one, thanks a lot 😉

    And can I just say … Oh my gosh, those geese are too cute!!

    Yeah, we don’t have AC in our house except for a unit in our bedroom, and it is finally HOT here in PA. Sigh. Oh well…I’ll take this over the snow any day! 🙂

      Nice perspective. In the winter, we complain about the cold; in the summer, about the heat. There’s no winning!

    I love smoothies, and my last two blog posts have featured them! Once the warm weather hits I have major smoothie cravings. My favorites: plain banana with banana, yogurt, and maple syrup; and mango banana strawberry. Love ’em.

    I’m sorry your commute is going to be so long and without air conditioning. I’m sure the great job will more than make up for it though!

    I have never been a smoothie person, mostly because if I don’t get to chew something I don’t feel full!

      Agreed! I don’t enjoy them as a meal but love smoothies as a refreshing afternoon snack or dessert.

    Those little duckies are so cute!! 😀

    I like making raspberry smoothies. I also recently tried Amazing Grass chocolate. It was fantastic!

      I keep hearing so much about Amazing Grass that it might be time to splurge. 😉

    The Orange Dream Machine from Jamba Juice! Not sure if it counts … but damn, it’s good.

    ha, wouldn’t it be nice if we had wings -not just to allow us to do things quicker but to quickly get away for a while when we need to 🙂
