Morning Walks and Talks

You know you're living in Saudi Arabia when a 'lower' predicted temperature of 109 degrees is met with a smile. It's so hot this time of year, but at least we are lucky that it's a dry heat. I'll take that any day over the sticky humidity heat, yet somehow that was what we were met with this morning. Ugh.

Sojo and I were up super early this morning, so I suggest we go and drop off my library books and magazines before it got too hot. She decided to wear her roller blades, and she's not too slick on those babies, so it was a lot of work to get to the library. What she lacked in roller blade skill she made up for in super cute stripy leggings and overall cuteness.



All that effort added to the very humid morning had us both covered in sweat before we even made it halfway there. It was close to miserable, and it's only a ten minute walk. Thankfully, our camp has air-conditioned bus stops. Crazy, eh? We simply had to stop and cool off for a minute or two. Or five.


We finally made it and cooled off in the library reading some great new books they had on display. Both of us were loathing the trip home, so we packed up the roller blades and went home in socks instead. Much, much easier for everyone, and some popsicles cooled us off when we got home. 

I love mornings like this (minus the humidity). Walking, talking, all that authentic time together. It's always been my favorite time with her.

Treasure these moments. They fly by so quickly. Makes me yearn for a moment like that with you.
