My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O lord: in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up... Psalm 5:3

It was very hot & muggy today with temperatures close to 100 degrees. I am trying to cool off in the shade here. The lighting is somewhat contrasty and I almost deleted it but decided it would look better in black & white. I did not feel like doing it over in this type of heat so this is it:) After I got done my clothes were sticking to me and the perspiration was rolling down my face...Got cooled off by eating ice cold watermelon... a good treat in hot weather.

    You made lemonade out of a lemon - photo that is : ) This is an excellent save of the photo!!! My thermometer is sitting right on 100 degrees at the house. I have been out doing errands and I feel very wilted even with AC in the car and stores. It's brutal out there and I am sorry to hear that it has made its way up to you!
