So I’m back from my reunion, back from Wyoming. Hoping to have some post reunion thoughts when I’ve rested, but right now, just dealing with being back in the HEAT and the HUMIDITY. O.O I forget how hot it can get when I’m away.

I love Texas and I love living here, but I feel…less love in July and August. LOL I’m a writer and I struggle to describe the heat, the humidity to people who haven’t experienced it. There is the thickness of the air as you try to suck it into your lungs, that feeling of not quite drowning. It’s great for the skin, though (if you don’t lay out in the sun w/o sunscreen!). I swear I’ve grown gills. LOL

So what happens is that my hermit inclinations are boosted by the heat. I go out even less in the summer than I do normally. Because it is hot. And humid. Did I mention it is hot here? (grin)

Okay, I’ll stop and turn my attention to something fun. I have a gift card and some audio book coupons to award! I don’t know if drums will roll when it is both hot and humid. I do know it takes energy that I don’t have, so will just get to it.

The winner of the audio books are:

Girl Gone Nova – Shadow! (Thank you so much for joining the blog hop!)

The Last Enemy –  Lynn Kelley! (Thank you so much for stopping by the blog!)

And the winner of the AnaBanana gift card is:  Sandra Stixrude (Thank you for supporting the blog and the hop!)

So, is it hot where you are? How do you feel about hot? What is your ideal temperature? All comments are entered into my monthly drawing for $10 AnaBanana gift card. Winner is announced in the first blog post of the new month.

New Orleans. A girl. A guy. Bullets and bad guys. A normal day in the Big UNeasy. Well, what passes for normal…

    I live in Wisconsin and we have humid weather too. Last summer was a hot one. I’m sure not as hot as Texas but the hottest I remember in a long time. We lived in AC.

      Last year was brutal all over, I think. I know we sure suffered here! I find the contrast with WY/TX a little pointed at the moment! LOL I don’t know how people lived here before A/C!
