June 17--heat wave!

It's hot here, and gonna stay hot. Malida woke me up at 5:30 this morning and suggested we go out walking before it got to hot. I suggested rolling over and sleeping for another hour. We did get up at 6:30 and went for a walk. The temperature was already 78. It was a nice walk, and there were plenty of people who had the same idea.

It was in the mid 80s by the time we finished. We came home and had coffee and did chores until we went out again for some lunch at Malida's favorite hamburger place. Interestingly, there were a lot less people there than usual. Maybe the heat keep them home. It was 99 when we went to eat.

From where I was sitting in the restaurant, I could see the people in the next table. It looked to be a guy, his mom, and his girlfriend. I could only really see the girlfriend's face. She seemed pretty uncomfortable around the mom. A lot of looking out the window as mom and son chatted, and looking at her phone. I love watching people and trying to figure out what is going on.

After lunch we came home and took a nap. I dreamed that the cats were sleeping on my lap, but there were two extra cats. I wondered where they came from. I tossed one out the door, and decided to keep the other one.

After we got up I prepared some vegetables to take to our friends' new house. They used to live on the far side of town, but now they are on our side, and much closer. They have a lovely home with lots of counter space in the kitchen. We enjoyed a meal and talked for hours. It is nice to have them closer to us.

It is still in the mid 90s, and will only cool down to 80 overnight. Tomorrow we will go up to see my dad and my step-sister. Her house is up in the foothills where it will be a few degrees cooler, and she has a pool, so should be just about perfect.
