August 31st

It is 93º outside and the time is 10:30 AM.

This is the last day of August.

When life is unbearable in a California roasting oven, a CostCo trip is required.  It is air-conditioned.

The chilled fresh produce room can hold 20 people, easy.  The chilled dairy products room can hold at least 50 people, as long as everyone keeps moving.  

This was there…



And this was there…




There is hope after all.

  1. And, of course, all those wonderful food samples. Anyone for a candy cane?

    1. The crush of carts and people made it almost impossible to get over to the samples! I did manage some, and even bought one of the products.

  3. Remember when we went to the movies to cool off for an afternoon? Being kids, did we even appreciate it?

    1. I wonder if kids realize how utterly miserable the heat is to adults?

  4. So, you went to Costco to just chill for awhile?

    1. We did end up spending $70 on items we needed. Usually when we go there, we call it the $100 store.

  5. This past week we turned on our air-conditioning for the first time this year. Couldn't help it. We just kept it on for a few hours each day because it just got unbearable inside. Costco is cool (literally speaking) but we never seem to get out of there without spending $300. That would be some expensive cooling off.

    1. I agree, but we kept our wallets from losing too much this time.

    1. It was an odd combination of Halloween costumes, T-giving cookware, and Christmas. It was like being in a time travel.

    1. Sigh. One hemisphere will roast while the other wears jackets and winter gear.

  9. I remember when we all complained about Christmas wares in the shops at the end of October. Here it isn't even September, (well it is now, but not when you wrote this) and Christmas things are appearing. I'm not ready!

    1. The people in charge keep moving the release dates up and up. I suspect someday we will have Christmas in July.
