Things are heating up here, literally. Where most of you are experiencing freezing temperatures we on the other side of the globe are sizzl'in in the summer heat. I expect it to be hot in December and January as that is when temperatures typically soar but with February usually comes some cool relief. So far Feb. has been anything but cool.
What is hot you ask? Well temps have remained in the high 80’s. I know especially my Texas friends are thinking that is not too bad but that is the temp INSIDE and outside. For some reason unknown to me, South African homes do not have air conditioning.
Around 5p.m. yesterday afternoon Blake asked “What’s for dinner”. I shuttered at the thought of turning on my stove and making dinner. Truth be told, I shutter every night, regardless of the temperature, at the thought of making dinner. I know I just blew my Martha Stewart image (ha). For reasons I can only explain as temporary insanity due to an overheated brain I replied, “How about ice-cream?” Blake gave me the ‘what have you done with my mother look’ and responded, “Really?”.
So we hopped in the car and went for ice-cream. I kept telling myself over and over, "Ice-cream is nutritious it has milk in it." However I did make them eat apples and carrots before bed to rid myself of the lingering maternal guilt.
Today is teeming with heat once again…any ideas on what I should do for dinner tonight?
