be careful what you wish for

Remember how I spent all that time complaining how cold and rainy it was, and how much I wished it would just be summer? Ummm yeah, about that.... it's freaking hot. As in according to the weather people the heat index (how hot it feels with humidity. Because this is Minnesota, we don't get dry heat) is about 105 degrees for the Twin Cities. Fun stuff.

I love this dress, especially when paired with this belt (actually, I've already shown it on the blog, albeit a long time ago, on this post. sorry for the repeat ^^). It's a heavier fabric which gives it some shape but it's still light enough for hot days, and the blue has a bit of a sheen to it, which is fun.

Clearly I'm feeling a bit angsty about the heat in this photo... mom and I were walking the dogs this afternoon and I had to take Tilly (our labradoodle) back after about 2 blocks, it was that bad. Minnesota is most definitely making me eat my words :)

Holding the hair off my neck. Seriously, is one day of hot weather enough justification to cut it all off with the kitchen scissors? Ok, now I'm just being over-dramatic (what's new) but whatever. 

Let's see, what did I do today... went on a walk with my mom in the morning (before the heat really hit its stride) and had a voice lesson in the afternoon with my old choir director Julia - always fun and a confidence-booster, she is such a sweetie! She stills seems convinced that with proper training I have the range to become a coloratura soprano (the ones that sing the really high, bouncy upper ranges) even though I've had issues with anything over a D for ages. But oh well, the exercises she's given me have really helped, and I think that with some practice I can at least be a decent first soprano again by the end of the summer. Yay!

And, ummmm, my mom made really good salmon for dinner tonight? That's about all I can think of. My life is superrr interesting. We leave for a weekend at the cabin tomorrow up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, a.k.a the land of spotty cell service and non-existent Internet, a.k.a. I won't be posting until I get back (perhaps I'll try to put up some scheduled posts for the weekend before I leave. We shall see). Regardless, hope you all have a fun 4th of July weekend! xo
