Once over easy for me...no grits! :)

SRQ said...

Perfect description for this summer. I'll need a set up for my eggs.

Look on the bright side, it will save energy.

brattcat said...

Excellent post.

Genie said...

Virginia, perhaps we should add a word and say "TOO hot!" Love it and so appropriate.

claudine said...

Il fait très chaud, aussi, en Russie! A Paris, le ciel est bleu-gris avec un petit rayon de soleil mais il ne fait pas chaud! Je préfère car je n'aime pas la grosse chaleur!
Courage !

Virginia said...

Claudine
Trop chuad en Russie???HAAAAAAAA
Paris sans AC is trop chaud!

Never hesitate to hold out your hand; never hesitate to accept the outstretched hand of another...................................................................

Halcyon said...

I'll take some cheese grits, hold the eggs.

Will we ever get some relief?

Virginia said...

Halcyon,
Where I live we get a five minute shower about every other day. Just enough to wet the sidewalk. My big hydrangeas are almost dead!! This is brutal!

steviewren said...

Hot, hot, hot...that's all I've got to say.

Petrea said...

And here in LA, I'm wearing a sweater. There's no justice.

Daryl said...

Fantastic .. and the tomato header, love it

altadenahiker said...

I wore a coat over my pig shirt this morning.

Virginia said...

Petrea and Hiker,
OK, I am going to have ban you "Dena" bloggers if you continue to leave snarky comments about chilly weather out there on the Left Coast! That's just wrong!
Guess you're in between natural disasters so you're getting all cocky! :)

Virginia said...

I guess when Earl gets home from work he'll be leaving a comment about hot cocoa with marshmellows by the fire!!!

Petrea said...

I'm the only one who'd rather have hot weather.

Ken Mac said...

and cornbread!

Bergson said...

très chaud comme photo

bfarr said...

You can say that again, sista'.

altadenahiker said...

Where's the Goodwill truck with the parkas? I'm freezing.

Mister Earl said...

How do I get the icicles off my nose? I can see my breath! Things are shriveling up!

WV: readu. I readu loud and clear.

Virginia said...

Earl,
I'm sure things have shriveled with no help from the weather.

Bob Crowe said...

You said it, sister. Here, too. I rarely go out on the hostile surface of the planet these days.

Virginia said...

B,
I hear ya brotha! Stay in where it's cool. When we land in the Lou, it better be COOOOOOOOOOLLLLLL!

Petrea said...

Now that it's evening, J and I are cozy by the fireplace. We've closed off the other rooms to conserve heat. We look forward to the arrival of the parka truck tomorrow. V, you're a pal.

Virginia said...

Oh we will be shipping many truckloads. It looks like we will be in our skivvies here till around Christmas. It's the least we can do for you all out there trying to stay warm.

I'm comin' to visit for a spell. I'll help you put up your tree.

My WV is "fumin." Like your sidewalks.

altadenahiker said...

I'm typing this with gloves on. We need jackets, hot soup, and footie pajamas. Really, whatever warmth you can spare. Lint.

Virginia said...

WE'll see what we can dig up. I'm willing to donate all of my sweaters. I'm convinced I will NEVER be cool enough to wear them.

TheChieftess said...

Ok...that clinches it...I'm not traveling south unless it's early spring!!!

Eeyore said...

Amen to the shot, it's HOT.
