You can fry an egg

Outside. Has anyone actually TRIED that? I mean, egg on the sidewalk kind of thing? I seriously think it's hot enough. What the heck? Man alive, what is up? It's only early April. I shouldn't have to worry about shaving my legs yet (sorry, TMI, but it's true) or melting on a short walk up and down the street.

Even my poor little one, her cheeks were so red and ruddy by the time we got back, it was only ten minutes, if that. I mean, come ON, Mother Nature. Cut a fellow Momma some slack, wouldja?

Now, today is the kind of day I wish I lived off the beach, had a nice frosty beverage ... and where IS that cabana boy, anyway?

Sigh -- sweet dreams, right? And speaking of sweet, I could really go for some ice cream right about now. Wishing I was back in NY where a Mister Softee would hit the spot. Now that sounds a bit dirty, doesn't it? Oops. Sorry. Didn't mean to, ehem, embarrass you.


  1. Well, I haven't tried it lately, but yeah, I've fried an egg on teh sidewalk before. It does eventually cook but it takes a really long time - even when it is super hot.

    Rain is coming tomorrow, and then it'll cool down. I agree, too hot for April!

  2. If you're uncomfortable now, just wait... :-)

  3. Hi Andria.. after the winter this country had it's so nice to be hot... today was the really first day of heat.. in the 80's here in Clearwater.. our beaches are full of spring breakers and I finally got out in the yard to do the clean up! All my flowers are budding !!!
    Also, I stopped at my local UPS and did a ship to you.. it's two days early but I will not be in town on Friday.. so expect your "Spring Fling" maybe by Friday..9th...
    Happy Day! Hope your enjoy!

  4. I just left you an award on my blog! You can pick it up at Shamrock and Shenanigans

  5. It is very early to be this hot. I could probably spring for some Mister Softee myself ;)

  6. And How?!?! I walked out barefooted to get put something in the compost bin today and came back with yellow feet and my kids are upstairs complaining....Spring is supposed to be back at the end of the week!

  7. lol can not say that I ever have tried.

    I am so glad this winter is over though.

    Have a great day

  8. Mr. Softee! Now that is a childhood memory!

    I loved the heat of the past two days. LOVE IT! I am so the sun worshiper and could not get enough of it. I rare complain in the summmer about the heat. I guess I'm a weirdo! lol

  9. Andrea, I almost spit out my coffee this morning when I read your blog post... the one about the batteries got me first... Yes.. I think we all lie to our kids.. (little white lies) that keep us Moms out of trouble... I remember the time I broke my little 3yr olds noisy lawn mower... she cryed and I felt so bad.. but two weeks of this thing cutting the living room rug was enough.....
    Love reading your blog... did UPS get to your door yesterday.. maybe today??
    Happy Spring
