speck of dirt trapped in rain drop.
the past few days has been hot. sweltering. 97 but feels like 150.
the weekly forecast they showed last sunday was for isolated
thunderstorms every day. nope. wrong again.
i shouldn't complain though, because we've had more rain than usual.
i can't get enough of these BIG BRIGHT PINK hibiscus flowers!
it's just a little too hot to be doing anything outside during the day.
it's kind of a drag...leaving a client's home...me, a little over-heated...
getting into my car that's been sitting in the sun for 2 hours...
only to grab a nice refreshing drink from my water bottle,
and have it scorch the inside of my mouth.
*just kidding* although that has happened...
now i try to remember to grab a frozen water bottle before i head out!
if you were to give this following mushroom picture a title...
what would it be?
uh...do these leggings show off my figure, or what!?
(is it just me...or does anyone else see...a...crotch...)
on my way home the other day i saw another misspelled sign.
at a church.
i did a U-ey...and got it!
FIRST, let me say that i NEVER saw ARCHAEOLOGY
spelled like it is in this sign!
BUT when i got home & looked it up...it seems that ARCHEOLOGY
WHY are there 2 different spellings?
check out the Society for American Archaeology!
it has to do with the 'ae' being a diphthong...or connected letters...
in the original spelling of ARCHAEOLOGY.
in the late 1800's the US Government Printing Office decided to eliminate
the ligatured 'ae'...and it was simplified to an 'e'...
for ease of pronunciation & spelling.
it is rumored that for some Archaeologists, the two spellings
symbolize competing aspects of the field.
social science vs humanist.
ANYWAY, it just didn't look right...and it was kind of interesting to read about it.

OK, so what about this one?
isn't BUDDA spelled BUDDHA?
(maybe it's the chinese way of spelling it?!)
thanks for dropping in...
stay cool (literally!) have a safe journey & enjoy the ride.
