This heat and humidity is just murder on my hair!

Dog days of summer 2016
Is it time for my lavender rinse?

July is turning out just the way we were all hoping for – lots of heat and sunshine – but that means that it gets a bit tough for the dogs. I give them watermelon slices and the westie gets frequent rinses, but there are days when the only place they want to be is lying right on top of the tile floors. Boy has it been hot around here.

Toblerone and Non Mordere

Unlike the stash of bars last Friday, today there are only 2: Toblerone and Non Mordere. The Toblerone is more about looks than anything else. The triangular-shaped bar is made of chocolate-honey ice cream with bits of crushed Toblerone. I find it a tad too sweet.


On the other hand, Non Mordere (Don’t Bite) hazelnut flavor has a creamy, velvety texture that reminds me of creamsicles! The tag line says it best: “Così cremoso dentro e fuori… che morderlo sarebbe un peccato!”. So creamy inside and out… that it would be a shame to bite it!

Non Mordere
The dachshund would say otherwise if he could have a shot at it.

      No air-con here in the mountains – only fireplaces or wood-burning stoves! The upside is that temps never go over the 95° mark so we just “manage” the best we can. 😦

        Wow we are so spoiled here with air conditioning!! It is amazing though how many homes in our neighborhood that don’t have it! Have a super week! Hugz Lisa

        In all my years I’ve only lived in one house that had air-con, and it was only in one bedroom! Funny thing, the landlord rented it out to me and a friend but since the air-conditioning was in my room, I had to pay a bigger chunk of the electric bill. 😮
