It's not just me, so there
I did get a quick peek...wonderful graduated reading based on various aspects of nature and animals, some review questions after each chapter. Perfect companions to our Handbook of Nature Study lessons!
Next, I always suspected I wasn't alone in this anti-heat syndrome I have. I mean, I couldn't be alone in that, right?
Well, sitting there in all it's glory in my Google Reader today was 'Want What You Have'.
That's ME. Totally me. Now I could live out a totally content, happy daily existence in the frozen north as an Eskimo (I love ice...whale, not so much, LOL) and never look southward a'tall. I don't mind digging my way through drifts waist-deep to get to the barn. I'm ok with 5 trips daily to do barn tasks like exchanging frozen waterers. I've "thawed" chickens...squawking, live chickens...in my bathtub because of frozen feet. I don't mind shoveling the driveway...repeatedly because of the county plows closing the end back in on me.
But make me go outside in Mississippi in June or July (or May...or August...or September...or...) with unrelenting sun beating me senseless, not so much as a wisp of wind from a butterfly's wings, and humidity so high you can *feel* the oppression of air outside crushing you....it kills me.
Like she said -- the air lately is as close to hot bath water as you can get without actually having the liquid.
And I feel better knowing it's not just one of my personal quirks now.
