Is This Cool Enough For You?!

This print, entitled The Blue City:Follow Me, by MichaelAndrewChorey, expresses perfectly what I'm feeling already this morning...I want to be cool!! I need to think cool thoughts, be cool, exude cool, surround myself with cool!...Why?! Because it's going to be almost 100 degrees here today!...(and tomorrow too I hear.)

As a matter of fact, tomorrow's weather forecast is talking about hail, humidity, lightening, and yes...maybe tornadoes again! O_0 My internal temperature is starting to rise just thinking about it!! So, I gathered some things from Etsy to help me think cool thoughts.

An Original Acrylic Impasto Painting by ArtRoe.

A Cool Forest by thelightgarden.

Purple Lines by emilyjonesblachowicz.

Bathe Daily by jamieshelman. maybe bathing is something I need to 'do' to be cool, not 'look at' to be cool! ^_^ But this is definitely something I can look at...It's a Cool Calm Capture of LaJolla Beach California by sdenny7.

And this would definitely make me feel cool!

It's an Iceberg picture done by AFortunateEvent.

And how about this necklace by DorotaJewelry for coolness?!...

Or this cool birdie print by SVGmade!

Are you cool yet?!! ^_^ I'm getting there!! I need something to take my coolness level over the top though....I know!!! I'll go back over to Vicki's blog, 2 Bags Full, and look at the photos of her and her husband's recent trip to the Canadian Rockies.....

....or I'll just listen to these guys! :-)

That's a seriously 'cool' Giclee print by DBArtist! It makes these guys almost as cool to look at as they were to listen to! :-) You can see what I mean below...

You can't get any cooler than Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin...can you?!! ^_^ And listening to them could prevent me from whining about the weather. So it's a win/win!!! :-)


I'm cold. I'm hot. I'm helpless.
I don't want to eat that stuff!
I'm hungry...full..exhausted.
Why does life have to be so tough?!

I'm lonely...tired of people,
Need to find something to do.
Why doesn't someone call or text,
or email me...But who?!

I'm whining all the time
about one thing and then another.
If I had a dime for all that whine...
I could be rich just on the weather!!

No, I'm not a little kid.
I am a full grown "Whiney Mama"!
And I can whine, and list and list,
comma after comma!

I don't like waiting. I am bored.
And I've got so much to do!
Did I encourage you to whine?!
Don't want to hear it...Mine is through!


  1. Ha ha ha!! Love the poem! I'm a whiner too! I could repeat that on my blog and it would describe me to a tee!
    Great finds on etsy as usual. We had HOT and HUMID yesterday and we still have it yet today until the storms start a bit later. I look forward to the cooler temps.
    Stay in your AC today and think cool thoughts!

  2. I love the photos, so cool!! he he

    It is thundering here and just started raining so cool enough for me today.

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  3. CinLynn, :-) Thanks Cin! From one whiner to another!...Did your weather get up to the 90s too...or 100?! I'm soooo thankful for air conditioning on days like this! And no worries...It would take a pack of wild dogs being tossed around by a prairie full of snorting buffalo being pulled by a herd of stampeding elephants to get me out of the house today!!! LOL

  4. Bee Happy, Thank you!...And yeah, with thunder already, you'll gonna be cool enough pretty soon! ^_^ Have a good day anyway!

  5. Your pictures are making me feel a bit cooler:) It is supposed to be warm here today too. I have already cut the AC on and I plan on staying in as much as possible. Stay cool!

  6. Wonderful cooling photos! Heat is not my thing! The bird is a riot. Love the little bonnet! ~Val

  7. Shelley, Good!...If we can't be cool outside, we'll be cool inside, right?! ^_^ And my A/C is on too!!

  8. Miss Val, I'm glad you like them! :-) And I loved the 'cool' bird with the bonnet too! I guess we all have to get the shade wherever we can get it!! LOL

  9. I know how you feel! And I'm glad my illustration brought a little coolness your way!

  10. It was only in the 90's here. Our town is on the lake and it keeps us a bit cooler.


  11. Verity, It did! It did!! :-) Thank you!!

  12. CinLynn, Ah! And yeah, the lake breezes help a lot! We need to move over to the bank of the Connecticut River I guess! LOL...Entering you now! :-)

  13. How "COOL" is this!
    The weather is certainly crazy this spring for sure! I love all the pictures and links to stay calm and cool! Such a fun post - thanks for letting me be a little part of it all~~

    (You are so creative with your posts!)


  14. Vicki, Awww! Thank you for such nice words! I'm glad you liked it! And thank you for letting me share your 'coolness' too!!

  15. Thank you so much for including my iceberg photo! We don't have to worry about wanting to cool off in Alaska! We are hoping it gets warmer =)

  16. Love the 3 of them could listen to them for hours ;-) I will keep my fingers crossed that the tornado's don't come. I tell you what i will do you a swap some sunshine for some of our cold weather ;-)) take care, dee x

  17. This makes me want to go lounge around in the kiddie pool with my babies.

  18. It's been raining here and now I'm cold looking at all those cool pictures! Nah, great post as always - love ArtRoe's work and the wingmirror photo. And laughed at the video clip too... :D

    (now I'm off to find a jumper....sweater to you I believe)

  19. I love that first print. Such a rich deep blue color. It's insanely hot in New Delhi today, too!

  20. Jess, Ohhhh! That's how you get those gorgeous photos?!!! :-) Well...I'm thankful!! And I hope it warms up soon for you! {Wanna move to Massachusetts? LOL}

  21. delia, Ohhhh! You're having cold weather too, huh?!...I would swap, but me and the cold weather had 'a time' this past winter too! I'd be whining about that too, if it was cold here! LOL

  22. Elle, Well go on Girl!! Yank out the kiddie pool and you and the babies have some fun!!! ^_^

  23. James, Sounds like you're getting the hot just like us!! Well, I'm glad to provide some 'pseudo cool' for you too! ^_^

  24. Well it's 2c degrees here today and fog everywhere. Can you please post some warm pictures for meeeeee....

    Nah seriously, you have some pretty cool pictures there! ♥

  25. It is so hot here, my cans of seltzer exploded in my back seat. Ugh!

  26. Michele, WOW! 20 degrees! Brrrr! I'm getting cooler just thinking about that! LOL And with hubby's garden growing like crazy I'm sure I'll have some warm pictures to post soon too! :-]

  27. Shannon, Ha! Ha! I's not funny!!! But I got an immediate visual. ^_^ Thank you for that. It made me feel cooler!!

  28. Debbie,

    Let's be cool. I need to be cool, too. You know what I mean.
    It's so hot.
    Bathe daily, adorable!

  29. ha! i like this one; super sassy. i love the photos, too. i'm DYING of heat over here.. it was only in the 90's, but that's plenty hot for me.

  30. Love the pictures but to be honest I think I am cool enough as it is. We've had a bit of a cold snap here and there's snow in the mountains! Not that I can see it though :(
    Thanks for the music video. I think I might go and listen to some more Dean Martin. I like him.

  31. Creating Trouble, Well, we're going to get some of the wet stuff too, either tonight or tomorrow. :-( There's no pleasing me with this weather thing this year. I apparently am just going to be miserable no matter what the weather does...unless I'm crocheting or writing poetry. So...there 'is' that!! ^_^ I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I just love the Rat Pack!!! :-)

  32. Priscila, Yes! I do know what you mean 'Man'!!! Cool...that's us!! LOL

  33. s + b, :-) I'm glad you liked it!! And I hope you were able to get cool too! I was an air conditioner baby ALL DAY!!! And loved every 'COOL' minute of it!!! ^_^

  34. Jo-anne, Oh No! Snow!!! In that case, you just forget you ever saw this post!! LOL...And I did that exact thing yesterday...went and listened to more Dean, Frank, Sammy, and some Doris Day too!! :-) It was a nice and 'Cool' day!!
