We've had over three weeks of stifling heat, many days breaking a record. We took advantage of one of the 100 degree days (with a heat index of 115 degrees).
The kids were poised, waiting for the word to crack their eggs.
The funny thing is that within minutes it did start to cook. Not fry, exactly, but turned into a glob of cooked yellow yolk, whereas the white seemed to disappear. So as a matter of fact, you can cook an egg on the sidewalk. Just ask our dog, who enjoyed three cooked eggs off the sidewalk that day.
Thankfully, this coming week it sounds like we will have a bit of a cold front sweep through, and may even see temperatures in the 70's again! What a blessed relief that will be.
Jacob and I are off to the hospital today. His counts are good and we will be spending the night for his last hospital chemo stay. The next two Fridays will be spent receiving out-patient chemo and then he will be done with chemo!!!! Just in time for school to start! I can't tell you how exciting it is to see the light at the end of the tunnel! He's also having an ECHO done today of his heart (this is done periodically throughout the chemo treatments) so prayers that the results are good again, please!
