A way too hot day

The weather is hideous! It is so hot that all one can do is take hourly cold showers and then lie on one’s bed with a mystery book and whine. It would be way better to be at work, except that one must actually go outside the house to get there. Tonight is the Ministries Dinner at the Cathedral, and this is an event I look forward to all year. This time, however, I am torn. I feel like a giant sloth and can’t make myself do anything. I know I will have fun once I get there, but getting even out my door is a challenge. What to do?????????
Non sequitur: This rose makes me think of my father. He was just enchanted by it every year when it reappeared. So now, as I pass it, I think of him and feel his spirit hovering about. This year, it is being extra prolific. Perhaps it actually likes this awful weather.

It's so ironic! We in Merlin are experiencing the weather of the Pacific Northwest while you are experiencing our Merlin steam bath which usually arrives on July 4th weekend! We are growing mold under our armpits and the pollen from the honeysuckle is killing us. While you are sweltering in unfamiliar warmth.
I'd rather be in the Pacific Northwest any summer, but not with our weather. YIKES!
Hope you got to the Cathedral dinner. It sounds like it would be so much fun (and it was probably air-conditioned!)
