This was the first morning I felt the cool touch of autumn in the air.
Thank you, sweet baby Jebus.
For the last two months the average temperature during the day has been 103degrees. We haven't come close to getting the minimal rainfall due for this time of year. Crops have withered, ponds, lakes, and rivers have dried up. Today the cashier at the grocery store handed me my receipt and said, "Have a blessed day and pray for rain."
It has been too hot for me to even drink my coffee in the morning, resulting in severe caffeine withdrawals.
Shut up in the house for two months where I've done nothing but sit on the couch and sweat and scowl, I've become a terror to be around. This morning was the first day I've been happy to be alive since summer began. I look forward to the day I can return to drinking coffee.
So does everyone else.
Now you have a blessed day and don't forget to pray for rain.
