Hiding or relaxing?

When we were in Paris last weekend, and got out of the car, this cat went up and got under these steps.  I don't know that he was really scared...I sort of then he was just getting under there to try to cool down.  It was so hot, any little bit of shade would have been welcome.
I got a couple loads of laundry done and hung out, then this evening we mowed the yard again.  I say 'we', but I sure don't do much.  LOL  Still, I think being out doing something like that is just good for me mentally.  I don't remember when I started mowing...I am assuming when I started high school...but mowing used to be one of my favorite jobs.  And I still like it, I just have to watch the heat. 

I think I always loved it because it was a job that did not have to be done every day of the week.  So many things women do, either have to be done every day or should be done every day.  I mainly think of doing dishes...I would hate to see all the dishes I have done piled in one pile.  On the other hand, I would love to have a dollar for every item I have washed!  I have been washing dishes since before high school so it would be quite a payday.

I hated them with a passion as a youngster...still not my favorite job.  Simply because they have to be done over and over.  We have a dishwasher, and I do use it occasionally, but seems easier to just wash them.
It got down to 52ยบ last night, and today has been wonderful.  A cool breeze all day...almost too cool sitting in the shade.  It is a strange, strange summer.
