August 25

It’s been stormy for days. And humid. I think the humidity has been at something like 125%. Ok, maybe that’s not possible, but it’s at least felt like it. I don’t do well in this type of weather. Some people complain their hair gets frizzy in the humidity, but mine goes flat. And my skin breaks out. And I get annoyed by the lack of sun and frustrated by the inability to venture outside. Basically, I’m just ugly. But I keep reminding myself about the miserable polar vortex and how much better the current state of weather is compared to last winter. Especially since another winter is coming sooner than I’d like to admit. After all, the apple orchards have opened already. Too soon the summer clothes I just found room for in my closet will be replaced with the sweaters I never got fully put away. So I’m going to remain thankful that summer is holding on and be grateful for the random breaks between storms. And maybe wear my hair in a ponytail.
