New York City

Roasting in the city

Really. That's the only word to describe my day of which I spent a great majority either outside or in non-A/C confines. Oh yes this is the joys of my job sometimes. I did get up and do my 5 mile run this morning. I felt more like a roasted marshmellow than anything else...and as was mentioned to me it was beyond being toasted:-p Absolutely gross and this was way before the sun began its journey to scorch the asphalt. However, as Sempre Libera mentions, the fountains at playgrounds are a godsend. I definitely took full advantage of this on the way home...you know it's crazy when you immediately feel your body temperature drop a few degrees after sticking your head in freezing cold water for a minute or two;)

Today I also had the lovely experience of doing a site survey at a construction site. Am I a lucky girl or what? :)

However, the big equalizer is the savior that awaited me upon my sweaty return: FREE ICE CREAM SUNDAE! It's the little things....
