Summer Trips

I want to stay put this summer. The indolence is not coming from being pregnant. It’s coming from being subjected to this heat. However, I know my husband and my daughter are itching to go somewhere. I’m not about to be a killjoy. But, groan, I really don’t like going places during the summer season. Besides the fact that it’s just too muggy hot for words (I don’t like dry heat either, but that’s a tad better), every place you can think of to go to is probably already crawling with holidaymakers. I don’t mind reasonable amounts of people. It’s not like I want some place totally exclusive (on second thought, yeah, that’s actually preferable), but get me away from the crowds. I think I’d prefer to go on a road trip (provided the traffic isn’t crazy heavy anywhere we are going) with the family and a couple of  pop up campers and just chance upon a nice place where we can set up camp and have lots of space to ourselves. That could be better (and cheaper) than going to a resort. All those family members who think nothing of the heat and bugs can revel in the outdoors while I can stay inside the camper sparing myself from those nasty hives I get from my own sweat and those ugly welts I get when a mosquito so much as looks at me.

Oh, my goodness, you're that hot where you are? It's just at freezing here, and I woke up to see a fine dusting of snow outside. I don't think summer is ever going to come!

You had better use a mirror on those mosquitoes like somebody did with Medusa, so that they can look at themselves and get the welts!

@Canadian Doomer: I'd be willing to trade places.:)

@Sharkbytes: Good idea!

We, here , rather will take the heat than the cold. Being in the cold can be a lot of people tend to "hibernate." I would take 100 degrees F (37 C) than anything below 50 F (10 C). Lately, we had snow even in the midst of spring. But as of this writing, the weather here is getting warmer that I had taken lots of 2 mile walks around our place.
You wouldn't want to trade places if you get 10 degrees Celsius, will you? And with snow, sleet, rain and storm mixed in?
If we have that weather , we all want to go out and enjoy the outdoors and not be inside dwellings.

I don't mind winter weather if I can just be cozy indoors and don't have to go out, lol. You got out just in time, btw, right before the crazy heat came here. It's getting nicer there while we had 36 degrees C the other day... but you said you don't mind that.
