Turn Up the Heat

Even Little Monkey, (bred on the streets of Cape Town, by natural selection, to withstand the harsh southern summers), succumbs to the enervating heatwave.

Am I dreaming of a White Christmas?

You bet!


post script: What’s the white thing behind her head? It’s an empty plastic milk bottle that had treats in. Her “toy” then provides lots of fun in trying to get the treats out of the bottle. What used to take her 40 minutes now takes less than 5, but the bottle then stays by her for many days, to be chewed at will.

        Oh Scifi, that works πŸ™‚
        My mother told me, in a hot summer she found me in my bed completely under my bedcover. Asking me what I’m doing there I told her, I’m in my igloo, it’s too cold outside.
        Fantasy is great πŸ™‚
        Hope I’ll never lose that fantasy πŸ˜‰
        Have a great weekend ahead,

      Thank you πŸ™‚ The ‘treats in a bottle’ is an idea from LM’s dog class.
      We don’t get snow here, even in winter, but something cooler than 37C would be great!!

      I looked up Illinois weather and this is what I found –
      Illinois has a temperate climate, with cold, snowy winters and hot, wet summers – ideal weather for corn and hogs! πŸ˜€

      haha Well the average dog is suppose to be about as intelligent as a 5 year old child, and some are more ‘childlike’ than others: case in point – LM! πŸ˜€

      I do often put ice cubes in their water bowl in the kitchen πŸ™‚ But my dogs do quite well by digging a nice dirt patch in my hard-won lawn, and lying in the cooler soil. πŸ™‚

    I don’t see the falling snow that WP generously supplies for us on your blog??? Maybe you haven’t got it turned on. It really might help with the white Christmas dream. πŸ™‚ I thought that white thing was ice cubes.
