hot and humid

It's been hot here for weeks. You would think it was summer or something.

I sweated like crazy in my classroom from morning to afternoon, and then to top it all off, we had to evacuate the building and stand out in the sun about 3:15 or so. Now, I'm really and truly appreciative that GISD takes the disaster preparedness seriously, and does fire drills, etc. Really, I am. Hot and sweaty. Yep that has been me since school started. Did I mention that I have refrigerated air at home? Yeah. So I get to pay for it, and then still go to work and drip with sweat and ickiness.

Then, this evening, it actually rained. Yep, real drops, with real water. Lovely. Cooled off the evening, smelled like desert RAIN. Watched a dog across the street try to catch the drops. Raine and I floated leaf boats in the gutter. Lovely.

I hear that Albertson's has started roasting chili.

I still want it to be cooler in my classroom.

Roasting chile.

I'm stuffed beyond words with decent (not great, but okay) sushi, and you made my mouth water.

Roasting chile. *sigh*
