We went to an Easton Corbin concert this past Tuesday. He was a great entertainer! It has been in the 100s here lately (yesterday at 4pm when I checked my phone it was 105 with a heat index of 117! SO HOT!) and it was hot as blazes even after the sun went down at the concert. But the sky made up for it. I’m not sure what was going on with the clouds, but it was so cool looking!
The kids I nanny have a pool in their backyard. We’ve been living in it this week with the 100 degree weather. Some kids have tan lines, Mallory has “goggle lines”. 😉 She’s a cutie!
We also went to the zoo earlier this week. And it was crazy fun. But kind of a mistake. Because it was 100+ degrees and even in the shade you feel a little bit like you might be baking alive. But we went with friends and all the kids had fun together (especially when we got to the running through the water fountain part). So it was still a win. But until it’s below 100 degrees again I think we’re sticking with the pool. 😉
We had a girls’ night last night in Downtown Memphis. We ate at Aldo’s pizza and went to see Clueless at the Orpheum. I got down there a little early because I wanted to avoid rush hour traffic so I sat on a bench on S Main Street and just watched the world go by. It was a good little time for prayer and reflection. It was also an awesome spot for seeing a group of men (of all ages and races) marching by in high heels carrying signs protesting rape culture. Well, hobbling more than “marching” because high heels take some getting used to. Especially if you’re wearing them for a long time on uneven terrain. I had no idea this was happening, but it made me proud to be a Memphian.
