It burns! It burns!

It's been so relentlessly hot these past two weeks that even the ferns in our backyard got sunburnt. See how part of the frond looks bleached? Poor things.

We've had record-breaking temperatures this summer. Pity the poor Husband; he had to put the kids to bed in that heat. One bright spot -- once they were sleeping, both slept more deeply than usual. TwoBoo even slept through the night until 7am.

This week is supposed to get back to normal... only 81 degrees today -- hah! -- and possible rain at the end of the week.
