Sprinklers Are Going

The weather has been warm.
A bit foggy in the mornings.
Sunny in the afternoons.
Quite warm for us.
I'd rather have it be in the 70's
instead it's 90 in the shade.
Really not typical for us.
(I live in the Pacific Northwest)

Cats are loving the beach life.
This house stays cooler.
They get to go out on the deck
when it's not too hot.

Dogs are having fun.
Jodie plays.
Maddy watches.

Me, I'm taking it easy.
Enjoying these warm days.
I know all too well
that the rainy ones
will return.

You can imagine me
with a good book
and a cool drink.
Just taking in 
the sights and sounds.

Every once in a while
I get up and dance.
Music playing
like I was young again.

Outside of the hots, it sounds like a grand time!

Sounds idyllic, apart from, maybe, the temperature!

Ditto, except for the 90s temps, it sounds wonderful. We know that no place is perfect, of course, even when it seems idyllic. But it sure seems a lot nicer than life in the city, squished in on top of neighbours! :-)

Yes, I would have expected balmier temperatures for you in your location. I prefer the moderate numbers.

Thank you for your comment about Tungsten. I'm sure you've tried this with Ally, but maybe a shallower pan would work for him, something with lower edges to climb?

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
