Are You Having Happy Weather?

Monday Musings on This ‘N That

Most of America is having an unusually hot summer, breaking many records for high temperatures. If you’re among those whose temperatures are normal for your neck of the woods, consider yourself lucky. Most of us at sometime are not happy with our weather.

In the Southeast when we go outside the air is stifling (Merriam-Webster Online: to be or become unable to breathe easily). Even walking out to the car is a chore because the hot, stuffy air is burdensome to inhale. Texas has had temps over a hundred degrees for days in a row.

So I thought I’d contribute to whatever remedies you’re trying for staying cool by posting the following pictures taken at my house. When you view them remember when we complained about those freezing days last winter. And snow in the Deep South? 


Did your state of mind if not your whole body cool down a bit? Well, when the weather begins to heat you up again, take a look at the photo below. Anchor the image in your mind so when you get aggravated with the hot weather, just think of you sitting under that umbrella. Imagine you can feel the soft tropical breeze fanning your face, making you smile. 

Try not to complain about the weather; it always changes. Turn your complaints into happiness.

 If you want to be happy, be.” —Leo Tolstoy

Till next time … keep on smiling.
