The heat already sitting in....

The heat is coming... we're actually 10 degrees over normal today & like 15 degrees over tomorrow.  Hello 90 degree temps.  Didn't expect to see you for awhile.

& yes, I was the first one complaining about winter....

Is this me today?

Well, I'm going to talk about the things I already see coming that I hate about the warm weather... but I'll find a silver lining in these things... so no one better punch me...

& if you try, be warned - I punch back... momma didn't raise no fool.

* I COULD complain about my frizzy hair.  I don't care what I do to my hair. I could literally stand under a faucet of olive oil or grease & let it flow on my head & I'll step outside & I'll still turn into Rosanna Rosanna Danna... every time...

If you don't know who this is... ask your mom


* I COULD complain about BUGS.EVERYWHERE!!!!   Now, everyone that knows me knows I love all animals - even bugs. I'm the one who saves them & takes them outside & puts them in flowers or bushes & says, "Go - be free - enjoy life" (Yes, I really do that) But bugs in mega doses gives me the willies... & especially ticks.  I can't handle ticks.  I pulled one off of Harvey last night & then instantly feel like I have ticks sucking the blood out of me all over my head.  We won't even mention the spider I saw last night the size of the palm of my hand....

SILVER LINING - I have to think of Bugs from Disney & they are all just a misunderstood community... except for Ticks... they are shunned from this community

Bugs need love too ... except ticks..

* I COULD complain about leather seats.... with wearing shorts or shorter skirts, when I get in my car after work... YAYYZZHHAAA!!!!!!  The back of my legs are scalded.

SILVER LINING - I'll just think of it as a heat therapy for my aching body....


* I COULD complain about the grass growing every time you look at it.    I'll complain about this one for my husband who cuts it... constantly... every day....
Doesn't it seem like you cut it & especially if it rains, you have an instant FIELD right there in your yard again.  If only my hair would grow like that.

SILVER LINING ... it's giving a home to those bug communities I was talking about earlier


* I COULD complain about allergies.  That grass I was talking about... yeah... add that in with tree pollen. I'm a goner. My eyes are running, my throat is closing.  I want to scratch my skin off.  It's such a good look for spring & summer.  Something you don't see often though on runways.

SILVER LINING - I'll suffer through it to see anything but bare trees. That's so depressing to me. 


I COULD complain about being a beach cabana girl for my dogs.  They have fur on - I get it. I wouldn't want to wear fur on hot days.  So they are panting & constantly drinking up the water.  Having 4 dogs - that's a lot of water bowls... & they are emptying them before I can even sit down.  We have 2 water bowls outside... 2 in the kitchen... 2 in the bedrooms.  I'm constantly filling them up, checking on them.  Even in the middle of the night, Sydney will bark & wake us up to fill the bowl up with FRESH water. Yes, my dogs are spoiled.

This could very well be my dog

SILVER LINING - everything about it - I'd carry water pitchers from my body if it made my dogs happy :)  love my fur babies


I COULD complain about sweat... Now, I like to sweat at certain points of the day.  Working out, running?  Yes, bring on the sweat.  But I hate doing photo sessions & having the sweat run down my back... eww... or getting out of my car (& those dang leather seats we mentioned earlier) & having my shirt stick to my back & have sweat marks & have to go back into work after lunch.  I need clothing invented that doesn't show sweat.  & please, don't bring back the hyper color clothing of the 80's the enhanced your sweat.

SILVER LINING - its like a sauna treatment for your skin every day

What aggravates you about Spring & Summer coming?
& what's your silver lining?


  1. hahaha this is hilarious. no complaining about hot weather after the winter we had, but good lord my sunburn hurts! haha. seriously fabulous, agree with all of them!

  2. LOL this post had me giggling the whole time. Love the Easy GIF (such an awesome movie) and the dog meme about the cabana boy!! My dogs are so spoiled too! :0)

    Spring/summer beats winter for me. I'm a southern girl and loooove the heat, and even though I hate the sweat beads, I'll gladly take them over shivering lol!

    1. I can watch Easy A every time! :) .... Yeah - I think I'll take the sweat over shivering myself. At least sweating may get off water weight :) Priorities!

  3. Love this post, way cute idea! Great pictures to go along with the complains/silver linings:) Honestly, right now nothing aggravates me about Spring & Summer. I love to camp and try to go every weekend or week possible but we still have quite a bit of snow in our mountains so I am looking forward to the melt over the next month or so.

  4. Complain away about allergies! The scratchy icky eyes, the dry skin that bleeds when you scratch...ugh. I love summer, but the getting there is hard sometimes!

    1. Definitely not pretty... that's why God created tans :)

  5. You must post pictures of your dog's! Where do u live that it is in the 90's? I honestly don't have anything bad to say about summer. I love the heat and where we live, bugs aren't that bad. I never notice them ( watch this year make a lier out of me)!

    1. I'm in the Louisville, KY area, but its not normal - we're breaking records with the temp. It should be like in the 70's... so much for Spring.

  6. haha these are great! I also suffer from frizzy hair in the summer and it's rather unruly but I do love the warm weather and would take the bad with it any day

    1. I'll suffer through too... at least everyone else has frizzy hair with me :)
