Trekking



After the thunderstorm last evening the temperatures here in Philly are 'bout normal for a late July day--you know, somewhere in the high 80's--not the low 100's it's been for the past three weeks. For the record that last heat wave was Philly's 6th. SIXTH. Anyways, I seized the moment and wrapped William up in the Moby and went for a hike. The sidewalks in this neighborhood, although charming, are made of huge slabs of slate, which makes the trekking a little precarious. But, oh the delight in getting out and about. Does the heart good!

It has been in the upper 90's, low 100's for the last two weeks here. I can't wait for a cool down..

It wouldn't be very comfortable to wear the moby when it's 100+. Yikes! I can imagine how nice it was to get out. :)

It's been horribly hot here, too. And I know what you mean about the trekking - clears out your head and it's good for the soul. I think that's why I've struggled some this summer - too hot to walk.

Sending much love your way. Baby William is beautiful. And so are you.

I'm glad you are safe and big congrats on your beautiful baby! Sorry I've been out the loop recently. My work has blocked blogging sites - the horror right?! I'm slowly trying to catch up with my favs!
