Are you obsessing as much as I am about the current heat wave and drought gripping Chicago and the nation? I think it's reaching biblical proportions, but then again that could be me obsessing about past sins; or watching too much CNN.
Where’s Iceland when I really need it? It doesn’t help my OCD given the Mayans have us pegged for yet another judgment day in December.
What does help is water! Lots of it. We (did I mention my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren are living with us while house hunting?) took a very short trip (my very weak link to travel for today’s blog) to the back yard in search of that elixir.
My travel recommendation: go for the backyard, the pool, the beach if you're going outside.
