Bad Idea

Okay, today I did a dumb thing. The weather has been extra hot and humid so the weeds and my rose bushes had run wild and the front of my house was looking awful! So I finally┬ábit the bullet and decided that I’d go out and chop the forest of weed down and tame the roses early in the morning before it got too hot.

What on earth was I thinking?!!!! I was only out there for about 20 minutes and started having trouble breathing and was drenched in sweat. Then I had to drink 16 ounces of ice water to cool down a bit. My breathing is still a bit labored and I can not seem to get cool (which means I can’t sleep). But at lease the roses are not attaching my neighbors and the jungle is down to a marsh. The evergreen bush and others are a different story. Since the temperature is supposed to be over 100 the next few days, I don’t think I will attempt this crazy notion again just yet. Maybe ­čśÇ

Stay cool and be careful out there folks. Remember to hydrate and stay indoors if at all possible, especially the children and pets.
