Oh, the Heat!

No, I will not stop complaining. ;)

Here's the temperature where the day started (in my classroom) :
I ran out of the building at the end of the day, and didn't photograph our high: 93.  But the prize of the day goes to the guy who teaches Algebra I & II - it topped at 98 degrees.  Makes no mistake, I work in Hades.  Ha! I'm laughing because I have no salt or water left in my body to form tears.  ;)

But before all that, back in my air conditioned home I had Smart Start with unsweetened almond milk.
I brought along some carrots, which apparently I forgot to photograph, and a Happy Herbivore Mock Tuna with spinach on Sunflower Whole Wheat.
Dinner: Farmer's Market fare - corn, and Sweet & Spicy Cucumbers
There will also be a peach, maybe two - but first I need to write tomorrow's PowerPoint. 

I fully anticipate being just as whiny on Thursday. Ha! See you then. . .

  1. We had the same high as you here yesterday. Ugh! It was definitely stifling. I can't imagine having to work in that, though. The warehouse doesn't have air but my office does. I'm loathe to leave it to go in the warehouse! I don't blame you one bit for complaining about it.

    That corn looks perfect and the cucumber salad sounds like something I'd love. I hope it cools off there soon!

    1. It looks as though the heat will continue! More sweating to be had! Ha. It has been ridiculous; my principal joked that maybe we can put a/c on the bond issue in 2024. Ack! (I hope she was joking.)

  2. How horrible in every way. Why don't they just cancel classes. Why is everyone enduring that torture?

    1. It continues! Today the custodial staff was taking the temperature in our rooms (in afternoon) and mine was "only" 88 degrees. The big winner today was in the north wing, surprisingly, and 97 degrees. Fun!

      We are enduring it because the bosses in their air conditioned offices do not see it as a problem. Until today. More on that in a minute. ;)

  3. That is pretty hot! We have had such a mild summer. I think you might have gotten some of our heat! :-) Hope you cool down soon!

    1. So hot! At least in NC they put a/c in buildings and schools!

  4. Ugh that heat sounds oppressive and horrible. I don't know how anyone would expect teachers or students to be productive in that heat. Yuck!! I'm not going to lie, your tears comment made me giggle a little lol!

    Great looking meals though! It looks like you made some cooking choices (well minus the spicy cucumbers I guess). I have been loving cold cereal lately. So good.

    1. It is, and most professionals would not go in were their conditions as such. I have to find humor in it, just to make it out alive. ;)

      Cold cereal has really been hitting the spot! I mixed it up today, but still cool and crunchy!

  5. oh my word - I'm surprised you're not running around screaming 'I'm melting, I'm melting!' Get some iced beverages down you!

    1. Not really a rockstar, but a lethargic boulder that moves slowly inside the building. Ha!

  7. Ugh yikes! I work in a basement without air conditioning so it's dank and humid and sewery but probably not nearly as hot. Good job with the cooling foods though - mock tofu, cucumber, peaches.
    I hope it cools off for you soon.

    1. Humidity has to be worse! I can't believe they don't try to air it out! Definitely going for the cooling foods for the most part. I hope we have some cooler weather soon, but I don't think it's going to happen.
