We’ve come to the last week for this year’s New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop.

What I Learned Today:

  1. 75°F feels cold after experiencing 109°F on Friday. I can see why the locals all wear winter coats in Phoenix in January when the outside daytime temperature plummets to 55°F.
  2. There was a time when I felt warm once the temp reached 40°F.
  3. My skin must be getting thin.

Question: Do you like it hot or do you like it cold? I prefer hot.

    It has been interesting to watch my daughter becoming naturalized to the Phoenix weather. She also enjoyed the ‘cool down’ the last couple of days. I like hot temperatures too but unfortunately in northern Indiana, they are accompanied by high humidity, that I don’t enjoy. Blessings!

    Welcome back, Karen! While I know you’re still trying to get used to the temps, it’s so nice not to have rain for a change. This sunshine is the best! Hope you get acclimated soon; in the meantime, I’m sure you’ll be quilting some fun things!

    I have fibromyalgia where my muscles ache all the time. There are times that are worse than others. My friends who have arthritis love hot weather here in OK. I cannot stand hot weather. You would think I like it because my muscles ache. On the other hand, I wilt after about 10 seconds outside. My adult son keeps the temperature too cold in the house to suit me. I have a sweatshirt type hoodie on most of the time in the house. No matter the season, I take a sweater when I go to a restaurant. Before my second husband died, we used to keep the house temperature at 75 all year. I much prefer the cold weather since I don’t have to go out to do grocery shopping. And to think, I’m headed to Albuquerque at the end of the month.

    It is hard to believe we are already at the end of the blog hop. Thanks so much for continuing to share the links for the group each week. And I agree- once you get a taste of warm, slightly cooler weather feels much colder than usual.

    Thanks Karen for sharing all these links again. Just back from vacation and have some catching up to do. I love warm, not hot. Perfect 75 and sunny, no humidity. Where can I get that year round?



I'm intersted in what you think. Thanks for leaving a comment.
